How to start building a shed

A successful DIY shed starts with choosing the right shed plans. First, determine how much space you can commit to an outbuilding, and check local codes for setbacks as you decide where to put it. It’s also important to consider what you’d like to store in the shed. Small tools can be hung on walls to save space, but large items like lawnmowers and snow blowers need more square footage.

Next, decide what style roof you prefer: We offer both peaked gable roof sheds and slanted lean-to roof styles. Finally, please take a look at the plan itself to make sure you understand the materials list, measured drawings, and directions before you commit.

How much does it cost to build a shed?

If you’re deciding between building your own backyard shed and hiring a builder, you should know it is cheaper to build your own shed. The exact cost difference depends on builders’ labor rates in your area. When you hire a professional builder, you must pay for labor and materials. When you choose to build the shed yourself, you only have to pay for the cost of the materials and tools. Here are the most common shed building price scenarios:

  • 10′ x 10′ shed ~ $2200
  • 10′ x 12′ shed ~ $2700
  • 12′ x 12′ shed ~ $3200
  • 12′ x 20′ shed ~ $5200

You can also use the national expense average for building a shed, which goes from $17 to $24 per sq. ft. or read this cost to build a shed reference.

What’s the difference between free and premium shed plans?

They all come with colored diagrams and basic instructions to build your shed. If this isn’t your first rodeo, you may be comfortable using free plans as an outline for building a new shed on your own — especially if you already have some experience building a deck or other outdoor structure.

Our free plans serve as an excellent preview to give you a sense of what it will take to complete your first shed. They are a great place to start to learn about what goes into building a shed, and they’ll be enough for experienced builders to use as a guideline. When you decide on a shed you like, consider upgrading to our premium plans and enjoy the benefits of in-depth directions and easy to understand step-by-step instructions. Premium plans provide extensive detail, including a full materials list and all the tools required to build the shed. They also name each piece and give much detailed information to help first-time DIYers.
