What you need to know before building a shed for housing your growing tool arsenal.

Summer is shed-building season, and not just because the weather is great for working outdoors. Most storage sheds are built in summer for a more practical reason: At the end of the season, no one wants to take all the summer gear and supplies that were brought outside and stuff them back into already crowded garages, basements, and homes.

So, many DIYers wisely decide to build a storage shed before summer ends.

These seven tips and techniques will help you get the perfect shed for your home and yard. And many of these suggestions are useful regardless of whether you build the shed from scratch, hire a contractor to build it, or buy a prefabricated outbuilding online or from a local home center or lumberyard.

Step 1: Get Permission to Build

Before building anything on your property, including a shed, you must go to the local building department and apply for a building permit. You’ll likely also need consent from the inland the 1 last update 04 Aug 2020 wetlands commission, health department, and zoning board. In fact, in many towns, the building department won’t consider your application until you’ve first received approval from these other agencies.

You’ll likely also need consent from the inland wetlands commission, health department, and zoning board. In fact, in many towns, the building department won’t consider your application until you’ve first received approval from these other agencies.

DIY Desk Eyeglass Holderhow to DIY Desk Eyeglass Holder for Once you’ve run the gauntlet and received all the necessary approvals, then apply for the building permit—and to speed the process along, be sure to submit a set of shed plans. You can draw the plans yourself or buy plans from any number of online sources, including Better Barns or Shed King.

The building inspector will review the plans to make sure the shed conforms to all local and national building codes. If there are any code violations, the inspector will point them out and offer code-compliant solutions.

Step 2: Siting the Shed

Siting simply means identifying the exact spot on your property where the shed will be placed, or sited. This may seem like a simple enough task, and depending on your yard, it just might be. But if you pick the wrong spot, you’ll end up with a short-lived, unusable outbuilding.

Keep these three ‘don’ts” in mind when deciding where to put your shed:

Don’t build a shed at the bottom of a hill or in a low-lying area where water collects. The excessive moisture will rot wood, blister paint, and cause hinges to rust. It’ll also promote mold and mildew growth on items stored in the shed. Plus, the ground near the shed will turn into a soggy, muddy quagmire after every rainstorm.

DIY Desk Eyeglass Holderhow to DIY Desk Eyeglass Holder for Don’t tuck the shed deep into the woods where it’ll be completely surrounded by trees and ground cover. The shed will receive very little sunshine or airflow and it’ll remain dark and damp, creating the perfect environment for mold and mildew growth. Plus, woodland sheds are under constant assault from falling branches, acorns, leaves, pine needles, and other types of canopy debris. Furry forest creatures are much more likely to move into or under a shed built in the woods. And there’s always the potential for damage caused by a fallen tree.

Don’t violate code-required setback distances. The building inspector will establish how far away your shed must be from such things as, side, front, and rear property lines; streets, driveways, and sidewalks; houses, garages, and decks; septic tanks and leach fields; wetland areas and easements. Setback distances vary widely from town to town, but typically range from about 10 ft. (from rear lot line) to 100 ft. or more (from wetlands). Check with the local zoning board or building department for specific information, and be sure to adhere to the letter of the 1 last update 2020/08/04 the law. If you violate setbacks, the town can legally make you move the shed into compliance.Don’t violate code-required setback distances.

For hand tools, you’ll need all the obvious carpentry tools, including a hammer, tape measure, framing square, combination square, 2-ft. and 4-ft. level, chalk reel, handsaw, and flat pry bar.

For power tools, you’ll absolutely need a cordless drill and impact driver for drilling holes and driving screws. (Be sure to have at least one extra battery so you won’t have to stop when a battery is recharging.) A jobsite table saw is very helpful, but it’s not absolutely necessary; you can make long rips cuts with a portable circular saw. And if you don’t own a compound miter saw (shown below), definitely consider getting one. While you can make crosscuts with a circular saw, the miter saw is much quicker and more accurate.

Also, get yourself a tool belt with plenty of pouches to keep tools and fasteners close at hand. (A tool belt that has attached suspenders is particularly comfortable.) And don’t forget the safety gear, including eye goggles, hearing protection, dust mask, hard hat, and work gloves.

Step 4: Start With a Strong Foundation

DIY Desk Eyeglass Holderhow to DIY Desk Eyeglass Holder for No shed will last very long if it''s floor frame. And to protect the foundation blocks or skids from soil erosion, set them on a 4-in.-deep bed of compacted gravel. If the foundation is relatively small, compact the gravel with a hand tamper. But for any shed larger than about 8x10 ft., save yourself a ton of time and sweat by renting a plate compactor, which is a large gas-powered, ground-pounding machine.

If you plan to build a shed that’s larger than 200 sq. ft., the building inspector will likely require you to install a permanent foundation that extends down to the frost line. This type of foundation is usually constructed of poured-concrete piers or buried pressure-treated wood posts. Check with the building department for specific code requirements and frost-line depth in your area.

And be aware that if you’re buying a prefabricated shed, it doesn’t come with the foundation, which you must build prior to delivery.

The floor frame of a shed includes the mudsill, floor joists and perimeter band joists. Since the frame is relatively close to the ground, it’s most susceptible to rot and wood-boring bugs. That’s why it’s very important to build the floor frame out of pressure-treated lumber. And don’t even consider any prefab shed that has a floor frame made with untreated construction-grade lumber.
