If you want a storage shed for the garden, and you don’t want to have to build one yourself from scratch, then a quick solution is purchasing a metal storage shed kit.
Make sure when you purchase a metal storage shed that they are made of 100% galvanized steel. This way they wont rust and will last for a long time. Some top quality metal sheds come with a double baked-on polyester enamel finish for added protection from the elements as well as heavy duty, hot-dipped galvanized steel frame parts.
In other words, just make sure you buy a quality metal shed, otherwise it wont last long. Just remember, “cheap is expensive”. If you buy cheap, it wont last long and you will end up having to buy the item again. If you had spent that extra money buying something which was better quality, then it will last longer and not cost you as much in the long run.
If you are feeling brave and want to try building your own shed, I have found a source for some great plans. Ted's Woodworking has some detailed plans that lead you step by step through the process of building a shed. You also get a lot of bonus videos and other valuable materials to help you in the process. Check it out below.
metal storage shed kits come in a wide variety of designs, styles and sizes to meet your needs. There are gable style sheds, flat roof sheds and even barn style sheds to choose from.
When you have looked through all the metal storage shed kits whether they are online or in shops and you have made a decision to purchase, just remember you are still going to have to build the shed. So just make sure you feel confident to do this, otherwise most places can install it for you.
Also be aware that you may have added costs besides the shed itself. A good idea is to place the shed on a concrete slab to avoid moisture getting into the shed from the ground, and to have a solid base for the shed. This can be quite expensive so another solution is purchasing already made square concrete tiles from your local hardware shop and laying them down yourself, and then constructing the shed on top.
