How To Get Free Shed Plans and Blueprints

If you are planning on building a garden or storage shed you will need some type of plan. It doesn’t matter if you are a novice or a pro, you need guidelines. There are many sources to obtain free shed blueprints and plans. If you are a novice and the word blueprint scares you, relax. These are simple detailed drawings that show everything that you are going to need to know to build your shed. They are no different than a travel map. It simply tells you that you need to travel from one step to the next, and what you need to get there.

So why bother with free shed plans? How often have you purchased an item, and then when you got it home, you wished you had bought the deluxe version, or vice versa? It’s the same with plans. You go to all the trouble of picking one, purchasing it, then get it home, and for one of several reasons it just isn’t want you want. If its free, then you have lost nothing, you can just go and find another one. You can do this several times if you need to until you find the perfect one for you.

Ok it’s a great idea. Now where do we go to find these free shed blueprints and plans? To start with you could check out your local home improvement stores. Some of these have some great options. They often will have a series of standard plans in stock. They will give some of these to you free of charge, in the hopes that you will buy your materials from them. These plans usually consist of the majority of items they carry in their store. Some of them have even written their own series.

Another option is take in a rough sketch of the details of what you are looking for. Many building suppliers will draft up blueprints and plans for you. They may offer to do this for you with some type of commitment that you will purchase supplies from them. Sometimes they will offer this as free deal as a promotion.

Then there is always the internet. Lots of sites are willing to give away the prints and plans for free. One such example is RyanShedPlans. Not because they are generous, but because they hope it will entice you to purchase some of the other items they carry.

These items are usually applicable to what they are giving you at no charge. For example if they give you all the drawings and plans you need., then you are going to have to know how to do the things that the plan says. This is where the extras come in. Perhaps the company that gave you the free shed plans sells some self help, or do it yourself books. They would be pleased to sell these to you. This is not being sneaky. In fact its an excellent business proposal. They help you identify what you need and then offer support where you need it. With the combination of your  plans, and the self help books you need, you’re ready to build one good looking shed!

Do Yourself A Favour – Build A Steel Storage Shed

Once your basic approval has been granted, the shed can be put up allowing you to move your equipment and possessions into the shed in next to no time at all. That's one of the benefits of using steel. The material is light weight yet strong and its flexibility allows for a variety of designs.

Forget the idea that 'one size fits all' as steel shed today come in a variety of styles and designs and even in kit form so if you have the enthusiasm and simple building skills to do it yourself, you can save yourself a serious amount of money.

In short your possessions will be well protected and safe.

7 Questions You Need To Know Before Using Shed Plans

For the novice builder it is very important that you have everything in place before you start any project. Of course the best way to do this is to have a action plan. So you have decided, you want to build a shed using a set of plans. Then first we need to put your action plan into place, and start by listing a series of questions you will need answered before you even begin construction.

1. What do you really need the shed for?
To start with you may be thinking its going to be used to store just the garden equipment. Think hard about this. Is it going to end up being a family shed? In other words, are the kids going to want to store their sports equipment in there? Or is the wife going to find a new place for the Christmas decorations, in your shed? So make a hard and fast rule of what the shed will be used for.

2. What size do you want it to be?
Now you know exactly what it is going to be used for, that will give you the size that you are going to want. Don’t forget to plan for the future. If its restricted to garden outdoor items, you will most likely be adding to your collection over the next few years, so you don’t want to have to build a shed all over again.

3. Where are you going to put it?
You need to determine when is the best place for it. It has to be some place accessible, without walking through your flowerbeds. Probably tucked away so it doesn’t interfere with your landscaping. Again think of the future, you don’t want to have to move it.
Now is the area you have allotted for it and the size of the shed you want compatible? If not then there has to be a compromise, either in the space or the size.

4. Does in need to be insulated, waterproof, or open?
If you are in a four season climate then you need to decide what seasons you need the shed to be able to withstand the most.

5.  Do you require a building permit?
Know what your local by-laws are for building a shed. It wouldn’t be nice to get your project finished ,and then have city officials come along and tell you to take it down. Normally you won’t need a building permit if you stay within a specific size, but if you have determined to go larger than what’s allowed, you will have to submit building plans for approval.

6. Now one of the most important questions, What is your budget for this project?
Everything you have decided up to now is dependant on your budget. Its kinds of difficult to set a budget when you haven’t determined the cost of materials yet. Its your budget that’s going to help you when it comes time to get your building shed plans.

7. Where should you get your plans for building a shed?
You have lots of answers now. The purpose, the size, the budget, and now to answer the final question. For this you will need to check out what resources are available to you. Your local home hardware and building center, home planners, and of course the internet.

Above Ground Pools and How to Avoid Wasting Money on Kits

Above ground pools are normally made from kits that come in a large box and cost a lot of money. There is a much cheaper way to install a small above ground pool than by buying an expensive steel framed model that will eventually rust away – even if it is galvanized to start with. The other problem with above ground pools that are made from kits is that the filtration and water sanitation systems are nearly always sub-standard because most of the money is allocated to the steel framing and not to the care of the pool water. Simple above ground pools can be built in more or less any shape using 150 mm wide concrete blocks from your local builder's merchant and waterproofed with a PVC liner and provided with a water treatment system that really works and ensures that children can use the pool without getting ill. 

Such a pool can be square, round or octagonal. If the walls are about 4 feet or 1.2 metres high, the water depth can be 40 inches or about 1.0m. The concrete block walls will hold this height of water if they are propped externally by further concrete buttresses that are built at 2 metre intervals around the periphery of the pool. These buttresses need only be 40 inches or about 1 meter wide and should always be built at a right angle (on plan) to the main pool walls. 

The beauty of this structural system is that the buttresses can be used to support timber decking around the pool perimeter. The pool walls and the buttress walls will need proper concrete foundations and these should be at least 16 inches or 400 mm wide and taken down through the topsoil onto reasonably hard sub-soil. The foundations should be at least 6 inches or 150mm thick. They can be stepped if the pool is not being built on a level site. The pool can also be set down into the ground if it is required to reduce the visual obtrusiveness. 

The internal water facing side of the concrete block wall should be pointed flush so that the pool sides are smooth. Above ground pools do lose the heat received from solar gain very quickly over-night and to counteract this effect, polystyrene panels can be glued onto the inner face of the pool walls. 

An amateur brick layer can build one of these pools quite quickly and easily but care does need to be taken to ensure the structural integrity of the walls and it may be easier and quicker to get a professional involved. A skimmer and three water inlets that can be bought from the local pool shop also need to be installed through the pool walls. The skimmer should be installed so that it maintains the design water level. Two of the water inlets should be installed about 400 mm below water level and the third inlet (that actually works as a drain) should be installed just above the pool floor. All three should be on the side opposite the skimmer. 

The pool floor can then be leveled out and covered with sand. Skilled builders may prefer to put down leveling concrete topped off with a sand-cement screed. 

When the pool is built, measure it up (include the diagonal measurements at the top and bottom of the pools walls) and order the PVC liner and liner lock from your local pool shop. Work out the volume of your pool and ask the pool shop to provide a pump, sand filter and multi-port valve that will circulate the entire volume of the pool water in 4 hours and a circuit diagram. The filtration equipment and the pipes can all be located, out of the way underneath the decking around the pool. 

I will write another article about pool water care because it is very important to get this right when the weather is hot.

Choosing a Proper Outdoor Storage Shed Plan For Your Garden

Your landscaping is completed for the season and it looks great, except for all the garden tools and equipment that are laying around. Obviously there is a need for a storage area. A storage shed would be the perfect answer. The question is how do you go about this? No doubt you are going to need a storage shed plan. First you will need to determine which type of plan you require. This you can only determine by doing your research as to what your requirements are regarding the shed.

You know you want to store all of your garden items. You most likely know what items you have now and what size storage area it would take. But consider any future garden purchases you may make in the future. For example are you thinking of purchasing a new ride on lawn mower, or a snow blower? This are items you may need to store and your new garden shed may become their home., but only if its big enough.

Then where are you going to put the shed? This will partly depend on what area you have available, plus what style you are thinking of going with. Lets say you have two choices of location. One is tucked away in the back of the garden almost out of site, and the other one is at the edge of the flower bed. The one tucked away will be more difficult to get at. They both will accommodate the size of the shed you have in mind. Here’s where your decision of style comes in. If you use the tucked away area, your style can be pretty basic because its not going to interfere with your landscaping. On the other hand if you choose the more open space, they you are going to want a fancier style that will complement your garden. You will have to keep this in mind when you pick your shed plans.

You will need to have at least a rough budget in mind. When you go to get your storage shed plans you may have the option of choosing your plans according to what materials you want to use. Different materials have different price ranges. For example if the basic plan falls well within your budget then perhaps a more deluxe version will be an option for you.

Be practical when choosing your plan. You are probably going to be surprised as to just how much you are going to have to choose from. If you aren’t careful and stick to your own plans you could get carried away quite easily. Most often the plans will give you a picture of the finished projects. You’ll see several that you really like. Some of them look like little cottages. Now look at them realistically, they have to meet all the needs that your have identified. Pick out two or three that you really like and see if they answer these questions.

1. Are they the size that you need?
2. Will it fit in with the area you have chosen?
3. If it requires a building permit will it meet the criteria?
4. Is it simple and easy to understand for the novice?
5. Does it give a complete list of materials, and will these materials be readily available in your area?

If you have gotten all the right answers, then you just need to choose the shed plans you like the best out of the group and get ready to work

How to Build a Shed the Stress Free Way

I wish I could teach you how to build a shed in this short article. However the most I could give you would be a few short tips to get around some of the pitfalls. Something that may be more valuable however is an approach to the whole subject so that you get the standard of shed you really want. Approaching your shed building project with 'reality goggles' on means you won't be buoyed up on unrealistic expectations of what you may achieve or disappointed by a less than satisfactory result.

When learning how to build a shed an understanding of the three fundamental variables; Time, Money and Quality are essential. Experience has shown that it is realistic to only ever maximize on two of these, as the examples below show:

Do you want a cheap shed? If this is your main requirement then you will most likely have to make some compromises on time or quality. It is possible to build a cheap, good quality shed but it does take extra time, to research the best offers, find recycled materials and save money by building it yourself. Compromising on quality is not something that I would ever advise as it often works out to be more expensive in the long run.

Do you want your shed built quickly? For a shed that is to be built quickly the two possible trade-offs are money or quality. The quickest way to speed up the job is to hire in a contractor or labor to build the shed for you. Alternatively building a prefabricated shed or a shed kit are both ways to speed up a shed build. Both of these options will increase the cost of the shed. Hiring labour or a contractor is the more expensive option. Building a pre-fabricated shed or shed kit requires a bit of physical work but as everything is already pre-cut or part assembled the time saving over building from scratch is considerable. Want to compromise on quality? Let's not go there!

Finally, do you want the best quality shed? Now we are talking! If you take some time to research plans, materials and styles you can end up with a robust, great looking shed for surprisingly little money.

By bearing the above factors in mind as you go through the process of learning how to build a shed you will reduce some of the unknowns and this always leads to a less stressful build.

Using Shed Kits Instead Of Building a Shed From Scratch

If you are planning on building a storage shed, make sure you do some homework first. If you are a carpenter or experienced handyman you have the advantage over the novice, in a few ways. You will be able to determine what would be best for you, either using a shed kit or building from scratch. With your experience your have more options based on your knowledge.

You novice builders have the same options, but it’s a matter of what would be the best for you. It really would be worth your while to check out the wide range of selections that are available.  I know, you really wanted to build this from scratch, and maybe feel like you’re cheating if you use a kit. On the contrary, you are making a wise decision, and besides someone has to still put it together, plus you can customize it. It’s that overall finished look that a person takes pride in, not in how many pieces of wood they had to cut.

These prefab storage units give you many options and have lots of advantages. First of all, you can have a choice of materials such as wood, vinyl or metal. If you were to build the shed from scratch, you probably would only be able to use wood, if you didn’t have any knowledge or tools to work with vinyl or metal. With some shed kits because of the way they are constructed you don’t need to worry to much about insulating, because of the way they are constructed. So that eliminates your problem of having to work with insulation.

If you purchase one of the self locking units, then you don’t have to be concerned about installing rafters, which is great, because it also gives you more usable space on the inside. You never have to worry about warping provided you have put it together properly.

Remember I said that you could accessorize it? In other words add your own creativity to it. For example, you can plan where you want the windows to be. You could even choose to put in skylights which not only is practical ,it modernizes the décor as well. What you want to do, and with what accessories are available to you, depends on the style of shed you are choosing, plus the material. If you are accessorizing, it is usually an added expense.

You will be pleased with how simple it is to erect one of these sheds when you buy the package. There are so many advantages to it.

For example...

  • All the material comes with it, There’s no running around trying to find everything you need
  • You are not restricted to style because of your limited building knowledge
  • Your choice of material allows you to choose something that will blend in and enhance your home and property
  • They are sturdy, durable and a real bonus is they are maintenance free
  • If your needs grow, and you need more storage space then you can either add an addition to the existing one, or purchase another one the same.
  • There are no hidden costs. Everything you need is in the package and paid for at the time of purchase. So you know what its going to cost you.

Although remember if you don’t buy one that comes with a base, you will incur extra costs with that, plus don’t forget about the accessories.

Putting Up a Garden Shed

No matter how big or small your backyard, you always need a place to store your tools and equipment. The garden hose, trimmer, and lawnmower needs to be placed in a space that is safe and secure, from the elements and from thieves.

A nice garden with different plants and vegetables will definitely benefit from a garden shed. All of your gardening implements should be organized and put away between uses.Even if you have a very small garden, a shed to keep your tools in will be very handy.

This is when you should take a look at available shed plans. Plans can help you build the right kind of shed for your garden needs. Selecting from the variety of available designs can be an overwhelming task. It is smart to keep your choice limited to simple ones. Otherwise, you will find yourself looking at plans for hours and not being able to make a decision. After all, the purpose of a nice garden shed is for a specific use.

The number one thing you need to do when erecting a small shed is to decide if you want a permanent structure or if want it to be portable (moveable). This will go a long way in helping you determine the kind of foundation that you need to prepare for your shed.

For permanent buildings, you need to install piers or concrete columns as the foundation. These columns will support the weight of the shed, add the things you store in it, so dig an appropriate depth of at least 24 inches down.

The ground has to be level in order to have a straight and stable shed – no matter if the garden shed is a permanent or a portable one. If the ground is not even, you can use a shovel, rake and hoe to even it out yourself.

The next job is the installation of the decking. Install it by building a grid that will lay across the piers that you have just put in place. It is advisable to build a deck with two levels for stability. The upper layer of the deck is going to be the floor of the shed, so take care when installing this layer.

When the floor is done, you can begin putting up the framework. Erect the basic stud framework of the walls. Decide where you want the door(s) and window(s) before you start this phase, or you may find yourself rebuilding a wall or two. After this, build the joist framework that will support the roof. When this is done, take a look all around your building and see if there are any places that you need to add more support.

Now you can add the walls. Leave space for insulation if you want this for your shed. Prepare the studs to receive the electrical wires by planning how you will wire your shed, if you are going to bring in electricity. You can install the wiring, laying out your electrical outlets and lights before you close in your walls with drywall or plywood. Be sure to leave open the places where you need to attach the outlet boxes for anything you want to add for power. Once the walls are done, you can add the door(s) and window(s).

Installing doors can be a difficult job, especially when putting up the hinges. The most common problem is not leaving enough clearance for the door to swing open. So make sure to measure twice the space between the frame and the door. You can place the hinges in between the door and the frame to double check the spacing before screwing it in place in the doorway.

Once the structure is up, it is time to shingle the roof. If you choose not to use asphalt shingles, you can select a metal roofing material. Both of these types are readily available and easy to install on a shed.

Next, you should decide how you want to finish out the interior. Now is the time to add the electrical boxes where you set them up before. Attach the wiring to the outlets or switches. If you don't know how to work with the wiring, call a professional to help with this step. Decide how many cabinets or shelves you would like in your shed and how you want them laid out to accommodate your tools. It is your shed, make it work for your needs. You can build the cabinets and shelves or you can just buy some manufactured ones at your nearby home improvement store. You can always use plain lumber if you don't need the finished look.

Now you can attach the wiring to the electricity from you house. Be sure you have gotten the appropriate permits before you take this step!

Now you can paint the inside if you want to. You can add curtains if you have build a cute little garden shed.

If you are in an area that gets a lot of rain, you might want to add gutters to your shed to route the water away from the foundation you prepared. Always try to be one step ahead of the game and your shed will last for a long time and give you loads of enjoyment and functional space.

When you decide to build a shed from portable building plans, you have to decide the overall purpose of the shed. Do you want a garden shed just to hold the tools – or do you want a cute little garden shed that has windows and curtains? You can customize your plans easily and make it as nice, or as plain, as you want.
