This will be an exciting venture.
The sheds are simple constructions, but if you have no experience in building such things you may find the process of doing everything yourself a bit overwhelming. The problem is that you need someone to help you to go through the different phases - deciding on the shed location, type, materials, selecting the right plans or kit.
This short guide aims to be your leading hand and serve as a basic introduction. Once you have gone through it, you will find interesting to read the other more specific and broad guides on this site.
Then you may decide to use a shed kit or to go entirely on your own just by downloading a construction plan.
There are several main steps you need to take if you want to create a really good storage shed:
1. Choosing the right material
2. Choose your shed location
3. Obtain storage shed plans
3. Obtain a shed kit (you'll be done much faster and easier for about the same price!)
4. Actually build the shed
This mini e-course will cover all this in just seven articles.
You can now continue to the next part.
