Storage Shed Plans
Your first step is to pick a storage shed plan that you like and feel comfortable with using.
A good storage shed plan will not only provide a set of directions, but it will also provide you with a list of all the building materials you will need. This will save you the headache of wasting money on material you don’t use.
Here’s some shed plans to consider…
Storage Shed Design Software
If you don’t like the look of the storage shed plans available, or if you have a picture in mind of what you want your shed to look like, but can’t find a set of plans to match it – you should consider storage shed design software.
There are several storage shed design programs available that are relatively inexpensive and very easy to operate.
You can design your shed, print off the plans, and then print off your materials list that is custom tailored to your design.

If you don’t want to go through all the trouble of building your portable storage building from the ground up – you can always look at getting a shed kit.
A storage shed kit comes in partially assembled units and you simply connect all the pieces together. Typically you do not have to do any cutting of the materials to assemble a kit.
