If you do decide to build it yourself, then kudos to you, building a garden shed is one of the simplest task in rudimentary carpentry. If you have a great command using tools and have a free weekend or two to work on some measuring, hammering, cutting, drilling and sawing, then all you need are the proper materials, tools, building plans, and you can soon have your very own shed in your own garden made by your own two hands. Instead of having to build a whole new structure with four walls, you will already use one side of the wall of your present structure as the fourth side and just have to build three walls to complete your shed. This will cost less and save you some time when constructing it. To make this project work, and by that I mean make it serve its purpose and also make your shed look complimentary to your existing home and other structures, there are some essential factors that you need to keep in mind. Steer clear of trees that may act as a hindrance to your roof, or have falling branches and fruits that can damage it. Also, you need to check with your local planning and zoning commission about your plans and the dimensions of your brick shed. Step 2. Be sure to clean the area where you plan to build your brick shed. Here are some other aspects in shed roof building that you should also keep in mind: Your design of your roof should be slant and steep so that pressure would not build on it. But you also have to make sure that your roof design should conform to the building code in your area. After your application has been approved, you should now have your roof trusses fabricated, if you don t have the tools nor the skills to do this, most lumber yards can do this for you for a minimal fee. Any commercial buildings, groceries and supermarkets would just have them lying around, all you have to do is talk to them and have something to haul the pallets home. Although some of these pallets may not have the highest of quality wood, if your design and plans are good enough, you can still be sure that your pallet shed will be durable and strong. But, for pole style barn sheds this is already acceptable. In fact, if the dirt floor is dry just merely placing smashed pea gravel of about six inches would suffice. To some, just merely placing foundation blocks and covering them with wood flooring would already help in keeping the floor off the ground.
