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. The beauty of creating your own from scratch is that you will be able to customize your design and allow it to directly cater to all your storage needs. Build a Shed Door That Will Not Fall Down The shed door rarely gets as much attention as would the roof and the foundation get, most of the time people would just purchase a pre fabricated door, measure it and install it and think that the job is done. But since the shed door is the single part of the shed that gets the most action, it s highly likely that it would be the first one to give in. But, aside from selling the things that you can part with, you can just build a storage shed for those mementos or tools you can t really part with. Primarily, if you don t have the carpentry skills, even the basic ones, you can still build your own storage shed and save a lot of money. You can do this by using by using storage shed kits and pre-fabricated storage shed parts. Aside from the reputation steel has of good strength, steel is also highly desired as a building material because it requires minimal maintenance and there is virtually no infestation of bugs like termites or even carpenter bees. Also, steel is not known as a habitat for fungi such as mildew and mold. After clearing up the soil, dig inside your outline with a depth of about eight inches. For the base, transfer inside sand, about two inches will do. Compact the soil and make sure that it is leveled. Using a post digger, dig six holes, three on each side of your outline, about 4 inches deep. You will use this for the posts where you will attach your roof later on. You can use this for trimmings and maybe even for shelves and window sidings. Drive around your town, renovations and demolitions are a good source for reclaimed materials. They can either be used as land fillers for foundation or for roofing materials. You can even go to your local junkyard and ask if they have aluminum or metal which you can get for free or buy at a minimal price.
