Indeed garden shed plans are only a part of this extensive list of projects for around the home and garden.
Shed Plans – do I need them?
The short answer is – most definitely! The old adage comes to mind, with a new twist…Failing to plan is planning to fail. I am a joiner and have been in the building trade for over 30 years, I can say with painful experience that unless you have built many garden sheds before now and so are some kind of an expert, a shed plan is absolutely essential to a successful project such as building a garden shed. At the end of the day you want something that you can be proud of and that is ‘fit for purpose’. No use at all if it looks fine but at the end of the day collapses at the first sign of bad weather, or as soon as someone slams the door shut !
Thinking ahead – Garden shed plans
A very good reason why you should start with a reliable set of shed plans before building your garden shed or garage or whatever, is simple economics. In this ‘austerity age’ that we live in we are all trying to make our limited funds stretch out just that bit further. There is no cash to throw away on projects that don’t work out. Buying a good set of shed plans such as you have with My Shed Plans ebook, can save you a bundle of cash in the long term, and here’s why..
Stops you from throwing away your money ! Yes that’s right. I have seen many projects where the builder has totally underestimated the amount of timber it would take for a project such as a garden shed, because they have not understood the simple things like the lengths the timber is supplied in. For instance, don’t plan to build a shed that is nine foot long when the timber merchant supplies timber in lengths of eight foot ten inches. The result is that you will have a wasted length of about 16 inches, which when multiplied by the amount of lengths needed ends up costing you a packet !
Following a guide such as My Shed Plans can stop you with ending up with a whole load of timber that is not long enough to be re-used, which means you end up throwing it away. You might as well be throwing your money into the fire!
Shed Plans – Foundation work
Apart from the appearance of the garden shed or whatever you are considering
building, there is one other thing that is fundamental to a successful building project, and that is the foundations.
