There are a number of things you need to take into account when purchasing a shed for your garden or backyard. This guide gives you some questions to think about before buying, as well as a few tips for how to look after your shed.

 

How big a shed do I buy?

  • Don't choose a small shed because it's cheaper. We're not just saying that. It's smarter to buy a larger shed than replacing a smaller shed later because you've run out of room. Although we have lots of customers coming back for their second and third shed if these are not placed strategically this can begin to take a toll on the curb appeal of your property.

  • What are you storing in your shed? Some of our sheds have double doors which are ideal for storing lawn mowers and other bulky items. We can also customize one of our cabinette’s which has a cozy little front porch, which makes for an excellent office space in front and do a garage door or double doors on the back for your mower, lawn care stuff etc.

  • If you're going to put shelves inside, consider the shed height and how many shelves you would like. Are you going to install a work bench? Think about where you might put it and how much space it will need.

Where should my shed go?

  • It's best to choose a spot close to the house. If you want to use your shed as a workshop, you'll need direct power for lights and tool operation. Always consult an electrician if you require a proper power supply.

  • Keep in mind the position of the sun. Consider putting your shed in the shade of a tree or a larger building if you'll be in it during the day.

  • Ideally choose a dry, free draining area with easy door access. To keep it clean and dry in winter, place the door of your shed by a path or paved area, you can always make one using bricks or paving slabs. Other great options for paved areas are railway sleepers, cobblestones, and gravel.

  • Remember to always allow space for the shed door to open and close easily.

What do I need as far as permits?

Permit requirements differ depending on where you live. Consult your HOA or city hall for more information.
