Successful Shed Building Day 3

What To Look For In A Set Of Shed Plans

Now you have your outline shed design in hand it's time to start having a look at some shed plans.

Before we preview any it is a good idea to review why you would want to use plans in the first place!

A set of plans is like a road map. It will help you get from A to B in the simplest most straight forward way possible. Without a set of plans certain construction routes might look attractive but it is only when you get some miles down the road that you realize you are about to arrive at a dead end!

If you have never seen a good set of shed plans before what should you be looking for?

5 Points To Look For In A Set Of Shed Plans

• The plans should have a clear material list. This will save you both time and money. Time when you send or take in the list to local builders merchants asking for a quotation. It will also save you money as you will be able to get the best deal for your building materials.

• The plans should have a general arrangement drawings showing the appearance of the shed so that you can submit them to local authorities (if they require this) to show them the style of shed that you propose to build.

• The plans should have details of all the connections so that you are in no doubt about how the components are fixed together, BEFORE you start.

• There should be additional information on installing door, windows and siding.

• The plans should be as specific as possible to your situation.
