1 roll tyvek
1 box 3/8 staples (for hammer tacker or staple gun)

this is just the wall material as i dont know what you want for a roof design exactly. if you want a mansard roof your best bet is to order trusses built for the structure...
Thank you so much. This will really help a lot. Whenever i do it I'll make sure to put up pictures on this thread.

New shed


Personaly I would not go with any prebuilt shed, reasons why.
There going to have stapled the shingles not nailed them.
Not enough over hang on the roof.
No drip cap on the sheathing.
Most do not even use tar paper on the roof.
Cheap high maintaince T-111 siding if it is vinyl siding it will be stapled on not nailed, not a good thing.
No Tyvek under the siding.

I'm sure you are correct. But the OP doesn't seem too sure what he wants and this is only a suggestion. And he probably couldn't build the prebuilt for less money.....just my opinion

Something like these...........

Derksen Portable Buildings
These are great, but i was looking for something i can build because I've always had an interest in building and construction and actually i want to either be an electrician or i wanna start with a construction company and work my way up to own my own company. So i don't want to buy some over-priced pre made building when i can build it myself, you know what I mean.

It may be worth it to you to visit a library or look around online and find a good shed building book which covers design and fundamental building methods. Most of them will tell you how to figure openings, roofs, and structure in simple terms and just may save you money. Also "a picture is worth a thousand words" when it comes to describing how to do something. Anyway, best of luck with your project.

good thought on looking for a book

the best books pertaining to anything carpentry are published by the taunton press, their the outfit that puts out fine homebuilding and fine woodworking magazines
