You have to consider the size of your farm shed depending on what you plan to store inside. The materials you re going to use will also be dependent on the weather in your area and how much you can afford. You should also be able to first determine your resources so that you wont have a hard time knowing where to get the materials you will need. Although some of these pallets may not have the highest of quality wood, if your design and plans are good enough, you can still be sure that your pallet shed will be durable and strong. Other sources for free or cheap wood pallets are from your neighbors, or if you drive around you may find them from homes where they have done some remodeling work. Building a shed doesn t mean that you have to burn a hole in your pocket. With a good building plan, you will have an exact knowledge of all the materials that you will need, and with that you can now use your imagination to see recyclable materials to fit in your plans. And there you have it. You can save thousands of dollars if you are just patient and diligent enough in searching usable used items. One option is to get a plan online, while there are free plans available, most of them are not complete, so there s really no point in getting any of them as it may even cause you more problems. What if the plan you got did not have any guidelines in laying the foundation? Without a complete detailed list of the materials needed, you may end up buying, more than what s needed. Always check your shed for gaps and cracks and loose boards which your child and their friends can pry open to get inside. If you have hazardous and flammable materials, store them in a locked cabinet. Never leave your shed door open even if you re working on a project or tending to your garden. All it takes is a split second for your child to rush in and play with your tools. Another way to ensure that you won t have any difficulties in building your lean to shed is to guarantee that the foundation where you plan to build your shed is level and the walls of your shed is even to the wall of the main structure. You will have fewer problems attaching your walls later on if you are able to make sure that everything is leveled.
