If you want to stain your wood storage shed, you might want to do that now. I left the shelves and side cladding raw wood to show off the beautiful rustic silver color. But, if you have new wood you can stain it as well. (I used two coats of Sherwin Williams SuperDeck Charwood color.)
Building a shed isn’t at the top of everyone’s DIY list. Whether your shed is a custom design or prefab kit, hiring a professional for the project can bring peace of mind. Most homeowners can expect to pay between $50 and $100 per hour in labor costs.

Wood also features beautiful tones, textures, and scents you can’t find with other shed building materials. If you have a favorite color, you can paint your shed’s wood whenever the mood strikes.
Brick sheds may be built with a wooden frame and then clad in brick or, in rare instances, be built of nothing but brick with a timber roof. In either case, they can be customized or finished in a wide variety of ways. Brick is expensive to work with, even with a wooden frame, so expect to pay about $24,000 on average.

Save a few bucks on buying seasoned wood by using this 10 cord firewood shed. It offers the added benefit of providing ample space to season the wood.
The next project is also about a firewood rack, but this is slightly larger. While it doesn’t have a roof, the rack is large enough to store a significant quantity of firewood. If you are looking for a quick and cheap project (under 10$), this project is the right one for your needs. You can make several units if you have a larger quantity to store. MORE >>

It includes a stairway with a railing and all. Make sure you watch one of these take shape in just 6 hours! (sorry, it’s a vinyl-sided two-story garage).
