10 Smart Tips When Building A Shed If you've got clutter clogging up your garage—and who doesn't—then it's time to build an outdoor storage shed. A separate outbuilding is the practical solution for storing lawnmowers, lumber, bicycles, gardening tools, ladders, and all the stuff we otherwise cram into the garage or pile up outside. The simplest way to build a shed, especially if you're a novice do-it-yourselfer, is to buy a set of building plans. Mail-order shed plans are available from several online sources (such as betterbarns.com, storageshed-plans.com, or mybackyardplans.com) and typically include scaled drawings of the building, construction details, and a materials list that shows the size and quantity of the lumber and hardware needed. Keep in mind that most towns require you to apply for and receive a building permit before starting construction. Call your local building department for more information.
