Step1. Find spot to put the shed. Here we found a corner where the sun don't shine. Measure properly to ensure that shed will fit in chosen spot. Space is 8'x8'. Perfect for shed.
Order shed. Shed will be 8'x6'. Perfect for shed spot.
Step 2. Resecure fence posts with lots of concrete. Shed will be leaning right up to fence so must be strong. Was leaning into neighbor's yard before as can be seen by above picture.
Step 3. Cut wood for floor/foundation of shed. Must be 8'x6'.
Step 4. Lay exterior grade treated plywood over exterior grade treated lumber frame of floor/foundation.
Step 5. Lay floor/foundation in shed spot and measure to make sure all is well. Fits right up next to where fence will be and secure with now cemented post. Level with dirt and rocks.
Step 6. Pick up shed from home store. 8'x6'--perfect. Open shed to find building instructions and more specific sizing. Hmm. 8'9"x5'8". But the shed spot is only 8' wide. It is not possible to fit in 9 more inches. There's that fence there. And the house on the other side. And the floor/foundation is already the exact size that the shed is not.
Swear at box of shed parts. Return shed and decided building it your own way is better. Buy piles and piles of wood and nails and screws.
Step 7. Frame and put up wall on right and then wall on left. Nail into floor/foundation.
Step 8. Individually attach roof joists to right and left walls. Check continually for level-ness of each wall while attaching roof.
Step 9. Cut, frame and nail on the front and back walls of shed. Front wall has window so cut carefully so as to fit precisely. Continue to level all vertical and horizonal edges.
Start priming wood. With pink primer.
Step 10. Lay sheet of plywood for roof and cover with shingles.
Step 11. Put in window and secure according to directions. Cut and attach all trim to be sure of fit and position.
Finish primer and begin painting. With red paint.
Step 12. Cut and hang door. Prime & paint all trim. Hang trim. Screw in hinges and latches. Shed is done! Shed is red! Go shed go!
Additional fun steps. Buy and hang hooks, brackets, shelves, etc. Put all garden equipment into new best shed ever.
Shed is organized. Neat, tidy, perfect. Perfect size, perfect color. Perfect little door and perfect little window.
Many growing things will be nurtured in this perfect little shed. Plants will be potted, seeds will be stored and then brought out for sprouting. Weeds will be killed. Planning and plotting will be done.
