New Shed - 10x10 multiple questions


Some of your local lumber yards may have shed packages with all the materials included. The only thing I needed to decide on were the size of the skids, the colour of the shingles, and whether I wanted to pay the extra $100 bucks for the siding kit.

A very good idea as well -- Something I will look into.

That's not going the happen, you'll have that much just into the siding and roofing.

New Shed - 10x10 multiple questions


When I started my 2-story addition 1.5 years ago....I was paying about $8 for a 4x8 sheet of struct 1 OSB....now it's about $14....4x10 sheets are costing $18/sheet...

Boy, am I glad I got most of my framing done before the big increase....

We have an Amish-built 12x30 shed with log siding that nearly matches our log house. Even has a garage door on one end but we don't park a car in it.

I built my 16x16 shed for under $700. You just have to know where to look. Take a look on craigslist. Theres where I got mostly all my stuff. The shingles I got brand new from a surplus place with tar paper for $210. My entire siding I got off craigslist for $15. All my studs I got for $40 and everything I needed for the rafters. Doors and windows I got free. Just take a look and see what you can get.

Build it as large as you can. You will fill it up in no time and wish you had built it larger.

There's hundreds of web sites on the net with shed plans, even some free ones.
Big hammer.com has a a simple to use design program you can down load for a small fee.
May even find some books at the library.
Any box store also has some.

Most of what the others said with the addition of:

1. Build on 4 foot module 12 x 16 is a pretty decent size. A good carpenter goes home with the leftover wood in his cuffs (Sawdust)

2. The shed packages I have seen use really crappy lumber. You are better off using douglas fir or Hem Fir to avoid twisting.

3. Make sure your access door is big enough for your current or future mower deck.

4. Include blocking in your walls to mount shelving.

5. Consider a Gambrel roof with an end wall access door for overhead storage.

6. Consider a solar lighting package.

Good luck with your project.
