One important step before you begin building your garden shed will be getting permission to build. Get informed to see if a building permit will need to be obtained. The permits required will depend on where you live. Most times a permit is only required if the structure is bigger than 12x12. It is ideal to check before you start building a shed, check with your building department for the requirements in your area.

A garden shed is not difficult to build; it is a very basic structure. First you begin with framing and building the foundation, walls and then the roof. To eliminate all the guess work when it comes to measurements, consider using shed garden shed plans.

Garden sheds come in a variety of styles. The most common garden shed design is the gable roof design. The gable roof shed is the most common and easiest to build. One reason for the gable shed being the most popular is because it blends well to existing homes.

The garden shed plans I used were purchased on the internet. These plans had step-by-step diagrams that made building very easy. Having plans is essential if you want this project to go smoothly. You do not need to be a professional builder as long as you have plans to guide you.
