Next, assemble the side walls of the shed, using the same woodworking techniques described above. Cut the wooden components only after measuring them several times, in order to avoid costly mistakes. As you should notice in the free plans, the top plate should overhang about 3 1/2” at both ends.

Let us know what you're using your California Custom Shed for, so we can help you create a shed to fit your needs. Our customers have used our buildings for more than just your ordinary backyard garden storage shed. Many have customized our storage sheds for potting sheds, tack rooms, hobby & train rooms. Some have used our buildings for motorcycles, golf carts, or riding lawn mowers. (One customer even parked a 1956 Cadillac in one of our sheds!) Others have used our sheds for a paint studio, guard shacks, offices, a dry shelter for a favorite pet, firewood storage, well pump house, or a ticket booth. Whatever your needs may be, visit us at our display lot located between Salinas and Prunedale on HWY. 101 (El Camino Real North) & Ralph Lane, and we will be happy to help you customize a building to fullfill your needs. We have over 30 buildings on display, which will show you the quality of our storage sheds, and give you many ideas you can apply towards your own building.
Yes, some facilities do offer insurance. If you do not have insurance and it's offered at the facility then they will sell you some. Note that you do not have to go with their insurance, it's merely there for convenience. If the price is unreasonable, you can find another insurance provider.
If you’re deciding between building your own backyard shed and hiring a builder, you should know it is cheaper to build your own shed. The exact cost difference depends on builders’ labor rates in your area. When you hire a professional builder, you must pay for labor and materials. When you choose to build the shed yourself, you only have to pay for the cost of the materials and tools. Here are the most common shed building price scenarios: 10′ x 10′ shed ~ $2200 10′ x 12′ shed ~ $2700 12′ x 12′ shed ~ $3200 12′ x 20′ shed ~ $5200
However, the crew that came to install my shed is the same team that builds Tuff Sheds from scratch. (I know this because I spoke with the Tuff Shed crew who came to my home, and they told me they also personally build Tuff Sheds.)
I have purchased a basketball goal and a trampoline from Recreation Unlimited. They have been great to work with on both purchases. Very easy to schedule and get setup even during busy holiday months. Thank you!
This Costimate includes pricing per square foot, plus other cost factors that will help you closely estimate what your wood shed price will be. Wood framed shed costs from other online estimate sites are included. They vary widely because each site uses different shed size parameters for estimating shed prices. You are invited to share your shed size and price once yours is built.
Cut one end of fourteen 5/8″ x 5″ boards at a 22.5˚ angle. Then line up and mark the other end against your structure. For a clean look, allow 5/8″ to overlap the back of the structure to hide the ends of the back cladding. (I suggest measuring and cutting your angled 5/8″ boards as you go. I have a 1/2″ variance in width along my sides.)
When you build this shed, you call the shots about the final look, all while saving hundreds of dollars over the cost of hiring a contractor.
My neighbor emailed me the other day to ask if I wanted any salvage wood from their privacy fence. I gladly picked through her wood and scored some nice rustic fence pickets that I used for building this wood storage shed.
Build your own long lasting shed to save hundreds of dollars on durable, weather-tight protection for your belongings.
Compact enough to fit in nearly any size yard, this gable roof shed still has a lot of room for storing pumps, spare tires, and other cycling gear.
Garden sheds provide an additional outdoor space for storage so that you do not have to keep your yard tools indoors. Although they are great places to keep lawnmowers, lawn chemicals, and other gardening tools, some are large enough to keep seasonal items that you do not currently have a use for. Outdoor storage sheds come in a variety of materials and sizes, so finding a storage solution that fits your needs is easy.
Outdoor storage structures are our specialty. We craft each building with attention to detail and quality that will ensure years of use and enjoyment. We build and finish each shed and cabin at our shop in Salem, Indiana and deliver straight to your back yard.
Several storms have passed through and not a drop of rain has dripped inside. The inside of the shed smells like wood — there’s no mustiness or mold. And that’s a very good thing!
