One of the most important components of a wood shed is pressure treated foundation components. This includes skids and floor joists. Pressure-treated wood that is approved for contact with the ground will hold off rot and decay for decades.
Are you using the shed as storage space for bicycles, furniture, or old family photos? Then you might need to increase square footage and invest in a building material that isn’t susceptible to water damage.
What is primer paint? Primer paint is used when you have difficult surfaces to paint. Shiny and slick surfaces. Smoke damaged surfaces. Primer sticks to many surfaces that paint won’t. Not only that, but it has a texture (which is sort of chalky) that paint adheres to easily.
Storage sheds have come a long way from being only used to store a lawn mower and tools. Sheds have evolved into an extension of the home that can become an outdoor oasis with endless possibilities. Now the hard part…
Remember, many factors will affect your final bill. Hiring a pro to build a custom garden shed will cost much more than buying a kit from the local home improvement store. Large sheds will run up the bill, and even a poor location can impact the budget.
Here are basic costs for sheds or shed kits based on shed size. Labor cost is discussed below. $14 – $20 per square foot | 6’x6′ to 8’x16′ sheds $10 – $17 per square foot | 10’x10′ to 10’x24′ sheds $8 – $15 per square foot | 12’x12′ to 12’x30′ sheds $8 – $14 per square foot | 16’x16′ to 16’x32′ sheds $100 – $1,000+ | Wiring based on number of lines, lights and outlets. $3 – $6 per square foot | 6” gravel foundation (optional). $7.50 – $12 per square foot | 4” concrete slab (optional). $35 to $200 per window | Single-pane shed windows based on their size and type. Permits, Inspection, and Unit Installation Costs $0 – $250 | Building a small shed without electrical doesn’t require a permit. Size varies, but sheds above about 160 sq. ft. require permit. Adding electricity will require a separate permit regardless of shed size.

Plastic outdoor building design has come on leaps and bounds. You can now purchase plastic sheds with shutters, arched windows, and even imitation slate roofs.
When choosing to buy or build a shed, your biggest considerations should be in getting a durable shed that holds up well to your climate and fits your needs. Some people find that a prebuilt resin shed meets their needs perfectly, while others want a custom shed that blends in better with their property and allows them to accommodate overnight guests.
