For the inexperienced builder it is very important that you have everything in place before you undergo[/spin any project. Of course the best way to do this is to have an action plan. So you have decided, you want to build a shed using [spin]some plans. Then first we need to put your action plan into place, and start by listing a number of questions you will need answered before you even start building.
1.What do you really need the shed for?
To begin with you may be thinking its going to be used to store just the garden equipment. Think hard about this. Is it going to end up being a family shed? In other words, are the children going to want to store their sports equipment in there? Or is the wife going to find a new place for the Christmas things, in your shed? So make a hard and fast rule of what this shed will be used for.
2.What size do you want it to be?
Now you know exactly what it is going to be used for, that will give you the size that you are going to need. Don’t forget to plan for the future. If its restricted to garden outdoor items, you will most likely be adding to your collection over the next few years, so you don’t want to have to build your shed all over again.
3.Where will you put it?
You need to determine where is the best place for it. It has to be some place accessible, without walking through your flowerbeds. Probably tucked away so it doesn’t interfere with your landscaping. Again think of the future, you don’t want to have to move it.
Now is the spot you have allotted for it and the size of the shed you want compatible? If not then there has to be some compromise, either in the space or the size.
4.Does it need to be insulated, waterproof, or open?
If you are in a four season climate then you need to decide what seasons you need the shed to be able to withstand the most.
5. Do you need a building permit?
Know what your local by-laws are for building a shed. It wouldn’t be good to get your project completed ,and then have city officials come along and tell you to take it down. Usually you won’t need a building permit if you stay within a specific size, but if you are determined to go larger than what’s allowed, you will have to submit building plans for approval.
6.What is your budget for this project?
Everything you have chosen up to now is dependant on your budget. Its kind of hard to set a budget when you haven’t determined the cost of materials yet. Its your budget that’s going to help you when it comes time to find your building shed plans.
