Don’t pack away your belongings in cardboard boxes if they're going to be stored in your outside shed. This includes seasonal decor (yes, your Christmas decoration, too!), clothing that doesn't fit anymore, and memorabilia. Items in cardboard boxes are always vulnerable to insects, pests, mold, and water or moisture damage. Instead of cardboard, choose waterproof, pest-proof plastic bins (these 17-gallon Clear Plastic Totes with Locking Lids from the Container Store are great!) — especially if you choose to store clothes in a shed.
In my Tuff Shed review that follows, I’m including some important comparisons between Heartland Sheds from Lowe’s and Tuff Sheds from Home Depot.
The 192 square foot of floor space makes it easy to organize all of your gear and still have space to hold a worktable for completing projects. The design features a peaked gable roof for plenty of headroom, while the exterior is finished with your choice of siding to paint or stain.
You could call this the Ultimate Premier Storage Shed. The LP Smart Clapboard siding used here has a lifetime warranty! The base model with Clapboard siding runs just for $12,667 and is sure to make a statement in your backyard!
The national average cost of a 10x10 unit is currently $97.59 per month. This includes prices for both climate control and non-climate control units.
The Glen Echo can feel more like a home than a garden shed, with a 3 foot overhang for a perfect little porch.
Top Tip: Assemble the trusses on the ground, by installing 1/2” plywood gussets over each joint.
Afterwards, lift the trusses and install them into place, by driving 4” screws trough the bottom rafter in the top plates of the outdoor shed. Plumb every truss before installing it into place, otherwise you won’t be able to attach the roofing sheets.
If you do go the professional route, as our sheds cost estimators indicate, expect to pay $500 for a basic shed, in addition to the labor costs I mentioned above. However, if you plan on using the shed for over five years, you should bite the bullet and invest in a higher quality shed.
At 120 square feet, my 10’x12′ TR-700 Tuff Shed is smaller than the 150-square-foot threshold for needing a permit to install a shed in my community.
But I felt more confident having a metal foundation. Maybe if I was buying a shed for a home in New England, I’d be less concerned. But Florida has not only rain, but also termites. So the galvanized metal foundation gives me more peace of mind.

A successful DIY shed starts with choosing the right shed plans. First, determine how much space you can commit to an outbuilding, and check local codes for setbacks as you decide where to put it. It’s also important to consider what you’d like to store in the shed. Small tools can be hung on walls to save space, but large items like lawnmowers and snow blowers need more square footage.
Many thanks for the excellent log store design on your website. It is so much more practical and attractive than any of the others that I found online. I had an assortment of treated timbers from a recent loft conversion so the only supplies I needed to get were the nails, screws and featheredged timbers for the side and back. I even had some roofing felt left over from a job last year, so very little money had to be spent. The final dimensions were 6′ high, 5′ wide and 20″ deep. I’ve emailed you with a picture.
