Are you looking to build a DIY garden shed for storing your garden equipment and tools? No matter for what purpose you are going to build a garden shed, but there are few basic things that every garden shed must have. Following are some useful tips and ideas for you.
There are few localities where you need to get permission beforehand to construct a garden shed or at least you need to send in your plan for approval. If you are living in a place where this is the rule, then you need to send your plan for approval first and then start any construction. But if there is no such law, like most of the place, then you can start off with your project by following the authority’s guidelines.
Once you got the approval or have decided about making a DIY garden shed, then you need to decide the material that you wanted to use for your project. It is advised to use timber in place of concrete for making wooden shed and foundation. It is seen that most of the new DIY enthusiast can’t handle concrete better. Wood is little easy to work with because of its light weight and portable nature.
Are you going to make a wooden floor for your DIY garden shed? If yes then you should protect it with the help of treated lumber. It will help your wooden floor against wood harming pests as well as wet weather conditions.
It is always recommended to come up with pitched roof rather than having a leveled roof. This will reduce your dripping issue. One more thing that you can do is to have large overhang which will not allow the rain water splashes to reach your shed walls.
