If this is the first time you build a shedYou may feel a little scared.There are hundreds of different types.designs,And the size of the shed.Some people look traditional,Others are unique.There are a few questions you need to ask yourself before starting your construction project.The first question to ask is what is the main purpose of my cabin?It will only be used for storage,Or is it a dedicated building to meet specific needs?If it's a warehouse,What kind of things will I store?This can help determine the structure of the floor,Thickness of the wall,And whether insulation is needed.Do I want a concrete floor or a wooden floor?Do I need a window for my shed?Do I need to power the building?Will I store lawn equipment or perishable items?Do I want a shelf or a cabinet in the shed?Where is my shed most suitable for my space,Does it need to be mixed with other buildings nearby?Is there any building regulation that will stop me from owning the shed I want?Building permits are often required for sheds larger than designated square feet.If your home is part of the owners' association (HOA),You should check your contract carefully.codes,And restrictions (CC&Rs).Your building may require approval from the HOA board of directorsBefore starting your project.Some of the things they might consider are Aesthetics,Including but not limited to color,size,Roofing materials,And landscaping around the shed.When deciding where you want to build your shed?Consider its function.You need a door or a double door or a special door,Including sidewalks or stepping stones?Will you get things in and out of the storage area?How many of these itemsDo you need to move them when you scroll them or carry them?What tools do I need to build a shed?How much time do I have to spend on this project?Type of shed:The most common shed is the storage shed.However,There are all kinds of storage sheds.Here are just a few:tool sheds,toy sheds,Timber storage shed,bicycle sheds,Home storage shed,garden sheds,lawn sheds,grain sheds,Combined storage shed and playroom.Sheath size:The shed has a variety of sizes.One of the smallest sizes is 4x4.A more popular size shed is 8x10,It has 80 square feet of storage space.The larger shed can be 20x30 or larger.The size of your shed may depend on the available area you have to build.It could be a challenge to have serious slopes in smaller yards or yards.Maybe you need a total of 100 square feet of floor.But you have a long and narrow area to build.Instead of building a 10x10 building,You may have to go to an 8x16 shed.Also due to available space,You may have an unusual 7x4 or 8x5 shed.Roof style and spacing:There are three main styles of shed roof.Type carrying name, "Roof of shed", may not be the most popularAlthough it's not too complicated,And easier to build,Than the other two.This type of roof has only one side of the slope,Usually down from the front to the back.Occasionally,It will be tilted from one side to the other.The hijacked roof has four sides of the roof all tilted down,All the way around the bottom with Yves.The gable style roof has a more open look.With this style of roofYou will see a very inverted shape.The other type of roof is gambrel,or barn style,Hip roof in Hollanda flat roof,And the roof of mansard or French style.The asphalt on the roof describes how steep it is.The spacing of the roof is rising vertically,Relative to the horizontal span.This is also called slope in geometry.In America,The slope is usually shown in a horizontal span of inches per foot.So if the surface of the roof rises 4 inch per foot,The stadium will be a "4:12 pitch".If you live in a region of the country where there is a lot of snow,You might want to increase the spacing of the roof,So it's easier for snow to slide off the roof.A flat roof in that environment may collapse.Collect it if there is enough snow.Roofing materials:The material of the shed roof can be as simple as the asphalt roof.Occasionally,You will see clay or tile,But because of their high costs,Those are not used frequently.Your roof can also cover a special corrugated metal.Wood-shaken shingles was once very popular,But it's dangerous because of fire.Many places in this country have been banned.Cannot be used for new buildings.The most common shingles used in sheds are composition,Or asphalt tile.Different styles,And asphalt herpes with different thickness.According to their composition,These shingles are generally assessed according to the warranty period.You can purchase herpes with a 20 year warranty30 years warranty,Even higher.When buying herpesThey were bought by the square.There are three bundles of asphalt tiles on the square.Each package contains 20-Seven shingles.A square shape of herpes usually covers a roof of 100 square feet.So,When measuring the total square footage of the roofYou can divide it by 100.Know how many square shingles you need.A modern green approach may also be applicable to solar panels,If the roof faces south to west.Wall material:The siding you put on the shedIn addition to determining the final appearance of the building,It will also determine how good it is in some parts of the country,The weather can be a big determinant.There is a fiber cement siding that is well maintained.It can be easier to break when cutting,But it looks like solid wood.The paint holds it really well and it doesn't need to be painted often.Aluminum or vinyl siding is also well maintained.If your house is plasterYou can choose to match your house.However,One problem you will encounter with plaster is cracking over time.There is also a fiber board that is pressed or formed by an external resin and adhesive like a wood pressure plate.If this is sealed and painted,It stays pretty good in most climates.However, it may not perform well in extremely cold weather.You can purchase this material in 4x8 feet sheets.It is also equipped with 8 "wide or 16 feet" of 16 feet-lap planks.x 14 in.wide.Fiber cement can also be purchased at the above level size.Buy a good shed plan:Once you decide what kind of shed to buildWhat materials do you want to use,Choose a good set of plans to use, which will fit your mind.There are many shed plans to choose from on the Internet.Before starting the project, please make sure you read the plan
