Concrete slab or wood foundation
The concrete slab or wood foundation of the building may not be the most exciting part of the construction to set up, but careful leveling and correct dimensions will provide an essential guide for the remaining parts of the building.
Attach the wall framework to the foundation. The skeleton-like frame serves to add strength and support. Follow plans, regulations, measure, and check plumbing. Install window and door frames. Attach the exterior walls with your choice of wood using nails or screws.
Install ready made roof rafters or build your own. Add the fascia boards to the rafters. The fascia boards prevent water from entering the shed. Attach roof sheeting to the rafters. Finish the roof with waterproof tiles, asphalt shingles or other roofing favorites.
Paint your shed to match your house. Or use another color to suit the shed’s purpose. Use the stain to enhance the natural color of the wood. It is your choice to paint or stain.
