So many things in this world come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and with various options. Wooden garden sheds are no different in this regard. Taking your personal situation and constraints into consideration will help you to make the decision that is right for you.
Let’s take a look at the primary factors you need to consider before you start your project.
The first consideration is what is the expected primary use of your shed? Will it be for outdoor tool storage, or as an outdoor workspace or a combination of these uses? Knowing how you intend to use your shed is important to determine before moving forward with your planning.
The second consideration is the size of your yard. The size of your yard is important for two reasons. One is that the size of your yard will dictate how many tools you have, which will mean you require a certain amount of storage space.
Second, your garden shed should fit comfortably in your yard. A large shed built in a small yard will take away more usable space than is necessary and look out of place.
Finally, and equally as important as the others, take into consideration the style of your home. Your new garden shed should be a point of pride; what better way to do this than to have it look like a custom-built shed that matches the design of your home?
The nice thing about wooden garden sheds is that they can be built to look however you want them to look (not so with metal or plastic). Simply get a set of shed plans that looks like your house then modify (if needed) to meet your storage requirements.
By considering what your “use”, “size” and “look” needs are for your shed and then getting the right plans, you are on your way to having a great wooden garden shed that will be the envy of your friend and neighbors.
There are some great design resources to be found, so it should not be difficult to find plans that fit your needs. If the plans are not quite right, they are certainly a good starting point because they can be modified to meet your needs.
