DAN MCGRATH - MY DIY SHED This link brings you to a one page website with plenty of construction pictures of this one man's shed building project. Click on the pictures for a larger view, the underlined links which say "Click Here For a Larger Image" do not work.
This project here is a demonstration of heavy duty shed building by a certified Do-It-Yourselfer.
►Why build your own shed? Well, I just don't like the ones you see for sale in shops, they are flimsy and expensive, my DIY shed is neither of these things. Additionally it is exactly the size I want, and built to my spec
. . .and I think it looks nice - if you like the cube look! I wanted a shed for my garden, I also wanted a hot-tub and/or a ride on lawnmower. Both of these are big, so I'll be needing a shed with wide doors. I also wanted a square shed, most sheds in the DIY shops are rectangular. I also wanted a shed with a reasonably high door, so I don't have to duck to get in - a reasonably high door also means a reasonably high ceiling. I wanted a pavilion type roof because they look cool, and because flat roofs are generally boring and are a leak just waiting to happen. Don't you just hate sheds that wobble or worse move in the wind? Mine doesn't wobble! It doesn't wobble because the shed has four 4" corner posts that are integral to the shed, but are also sunk 2 feet into the ground at all 4 corners. This makes for a very secure and stable shed. It is this idea that really sets my shed design apart from other people's. The first step of building a shed is to choose the location, I used a few lengths of wood to mark it out full size and also to get an idea of level. Once I had decided where the shed was going I spent a few minutes viewing the location from various parts of the house and garden to make sure I was happy with it . . .◄
SAFE SHED Most of the buildings produced by this business are "dual purpose". They do have some unique looking products. Nice pictures of their sheds and other buildings.
►Hello! Thanks for your interest in Safe Shed. It is my sincere desire and mission that every one of you, our clients, have a satisfactory experience with our company, no matter what product you choose to purchase. I would like to take this opportunity to explain the origin of our company and hopefully give you many reasons for allowing us to serve all of your storage and storm shelter needs. My vision for Safe Shed was born out of a love to build things, coupled with my own bad experience in storage solutions. My frustration from this experience caused the wheels of my brain to start rolling. I turned to the smartest man I know, My Dad for help. With his help, in a few short months, Safe Shed Manufacturing was open for business, and we were selling quality storage buildings statewide. We also provide you with a no-credit-check, rent-to-own option on most of our products, so that you may make monthly payments, should you need that flexibility. We provide customization sessions where YOU can decide how YOU want your building made, including your choice of options for custom paint, shingle colors and interior options like shelving, etc. We are a family-oriented business and take pride in assisting you in any way we can to help make your family safer and happier.

HOW TO BUILD A SHED FROM A KIT Here's kind of a neat little article you all might like. It gives some practical information on the assembly of a prefab shed plus a little info about them in general. This link goes to the Popular Mechanics website.
►For years, there have been three ways to get a shed: Build it yourself, hire someone to build it or buy a prefab model. A new method—constructing a shed from a kit—combines the sweat equity of building from scratch with the simplicity of using factory-cut components. All that's required are basic tools and novice-level carpentry skills. It's like doing a jigsaw puzzle with instructions: Fasten the parts together in the right sequence, and voilà—a shed is born. I teamed up with Connecticut carpenter Tim Law to build this shed from Better Barns & Sheds. The compact 6 x 8-foot building has red-cedar vertical siding, two barn-sash windows and a transom window above double doors. This kit costs about $4800, not including shipping. The small kit joins the company's eight stock kits ranging in size from 10 x 10 to 10 x 16 feet, and in price from about $4300 to $8300. They are all available with either pine or cedar siding . . .◄
BEACH HUTS Most visitors to this website know that wooden storage sheds are mostly used to store lawn care items or tools, personal junk, paint and automotive service items, etc. But, there is a historical use of wood sheds for this very unique purpose in several
countries such as Great Britain, Australia, and Thailand to name a few and that is to use wood sheds as swim suit change rooms, a place used to get out of the wind and dry off after swimming in the ocean. I have not ever seen one of these units, I do not know if they were ever used in the US or not. People use these sheds for light cooking of food like for picnicking at the beach. The thing is these buildings are really "sheds" not mini cabins for overnight use or long term living. Anyway, that is my impression of them. A simple shelter used to give a person(s) someplace to rest and warm up at the beach.
►I guess I should introduce myself: Hagen Rose, as founder of the Beach-Huts.Com community . . . I am a businessman, I.T. consultant and freelance web designer with a passion for the sea and seaside . . . In the summer I spend "too much" of my time on the beach and on the coast, where I sunbath, go walking, build sand castles, go fishing, swimming, reading, diving, cycling, BBQing, pondering life, talking to friends, drinking wine, etc. . . etc. . . I am sure you are familiar with the general idea! I have run this very successful site for 5 years now. In recent years we have had even more interest in beach huts and beach life, with regular mentions and interviews from entities including: GMTV, Wave 105, Hope FM, Radio2, BBC Radio Suffolk, Daily Mail, Daily Express, The Guardian, The Observer, Country Life, John Lewis, Zest and Coast Magazine, just to mention a few!! . . . It's free and we intend to keep it free for beach huts owners to advertise to rent or sell! How come free? We believe our biggest asset is people that advertise their beach huts with us, that's what makes our site! We do however have sponsors who generously contribute to the running costs. If you are interested in sponsoring us then please give us a call on 01202-315-437 NB part of sponsorship with us is our massively popular monthly email news letter which reaches thousands of devoted beach hut fans each month . . .◄

BUILDING A CARRIAGE HOUSE/SMALL BARN/SHED This video documents the building of a very beautiful shed - the builders really paid attention to detail. This wood shed frame was built on a very thick concrete foundation. Actually, in my opinion it was built almost to housing standards. The owner Chet built this shed using plans obtained from: "Better Barns Hardware & Plans, LLC".
►I built a Carriage House with the help of my wife Cindy, my two daughters Chelsea & Caitlin, and with special help from my niece Elana and my nephew Matt. There are two songs on the video - both are done by Van Morrison. The first is Wild Nights and the second is Domino. We built it over the course of one week and spent about $1700 for it. I paid 700 for the concrete slab and about 1000 for everything else (I bought pre-fab windows). The high roof pitch was primarily designed for the storage but the aesthetic of the shed was never meant to match the house. Rather, the shed, and the pergola, and the deck are all complimentary forms in an overall landscape design. I would draw your attention to rolling landscape designs like Central Park in New York or Greenfield Village in Dearborn where an eclectic collection of forms results in a pleasing design. It was very intentional. There are cripples on either side of the windows. This provides more than enough support for these small windows even though the studs are on 24in centers (and not 16in). The double 2x4's on the back wall of the shop are there because they hold almost 2 tons of hardwood lumber. I'm not sure the video shows it very well but, I use the back 2 feet of the shop for lumber storage. Double 2x4's were an easy way to create a really strong lumber rack for very little investment. The rafter/truss are 2x4 on the slope and 2x6 on the run. Structurally they could have been 2x4 all around but I wanted to use the ceiling from more storage so I went with 2x6.◄
