First Things First

building a shed One of the biggest mistakes people make is failing to check with their local zoning department before building a shed. Imagine taking all that time to build your new structure, only to learn that you're not up to code. Do yourself a favor and take that added step before beginning construction. It will save you time, money, and frustration. An added bonus to constructing a ShelterLogic shed is that most do not require a building permit. You should also take some time to measure the area where you want your shed, and think about what you’ll be storing inside. If you create a shed that’s too small, your belongings will be crowded and difficult to access. If you construct a shed that’s too big for your yard, you may end up taking space for other leisure items. Doing some simple measurements will help tremendously in the long run.
