If you decide to build a wood storage shed, here are a couple ideas that may assist you. First, decide what kind of timber you want to use, cedar wood, pine wood, and redwood are strong and durable and they also resist weather damage better than other kinds of wood.
Metal sheds are usually constructed from galvanized steel that can withstand high temperatures in the summer. When compared to other types of storage sheds, metal sheds are less expensive and are resistant to fire. But they are not recommended for storing gasoline or other volatile liquids and fertilizers. Storage sheds are best built some distance away from the main building.
Storage can be classified in 4 ways; an open storage which covers bookcases, shelves, coat trees, hooks, glass-front cabinets, and tabletops. A closed storage which includes closets, armoires, cupboards, chests, buffets, sideboards, entertainment centers, drawer units, file cabinets, skirted tables, and under-bed storage boxes. The third type is the convenient storage where you can use as a storage your closets, furniture, and storage areas within a room. And the last type of storage is the remote storage where you can place your things in closets and storage areas located in other parts of the house, in the attic, basement, or garage. The best example of this remote storage is the storage sheds.
If building a wooden storage shed is not what you had in mind, don't worry. There is always the option to purchase a pre-built shed. There are many types of kits available to build many different types of storage sheds. You would be surprised at what is out there. Most all kits do have complete detailed instructions, as well as the raw materials needed for the complete shed. If you don't have the right tools, many kits will also come with the tools. Of course, you always have the option of designing and constructing your shed on your own, or purchasing plans for a storage shed.
You are now ready to construct your shed. Be sure and make a secure foundation. I highly recommend a concrete base. Concrete allows a very stable foundation to build your shed on and helps keep moisture and dirt out. With a wooden shed you can pre-build the walls and install them in sections. Next you will want to install the roof which should meet the needs of your area. I highly recommend an asphalt shingle roof to protect your items from the rain and snow.
