					What do I need to know
 before I build a shed?
    Ready to build a shed on your property? It's an
 ambitious project, but one that you can accomplish
in just a day or 2 if you are willing to take the time to
  learn how to do it right. And as an added bonus, a
 properly built shed will probably increase the value
                    of your property.

Before you even begin, you'll need to decide
 what purpose your shed is going to serve.
 Will you be using it to house livestock like
  sheep, horses, or even chickens? Or is it
  simply going to be used for storage? Or
    maybe you need a home office, or a
    workshop to pursue your hobbies?
 Knowing the use of the shed will help you
 decide on important issues like where to
place it on your property, how big it will be,
 whether or not it will need windows, and
which utilities (water, sewer, electricity) you
         will need to have installed.

 Another important item to consider is the
design style and materials used for the shed.
  You want your shed to complement your
    property and blend in with your other
buildings and landscaping, not be an eyesore.

And of course you'll also need to check with
your local planning and permits department
to see if there are any regulations you must
follow and permits and inspections that you
   must get in order to put a shed on your

    Once you have taken care of those basic
  details it's time to choose the type of shed
 you want and get your building plans so you
 can get started. If you're a beginner without
 any specialized construction skills who wants
to build the shed yourself, then a lean-to shed
   is probably the best type of shed for you.
