Buying a garden shed? Be Careful!

Posted by Ingenious Storage on

I've purchased a garden shed.  I got my garden shed from Lowe's.  $1200 is what I paid + the taxes.  When I got it home and started making it I had to go back and get floor panels and something for the base. A weekend later I had a structure.  I had to add additional wood here and there to compensate for the poor product but yes after a weekend I had the structure.  Then I had to go back again for roofing boards and the shingle.  It was my first ever shingle job.  It took a lot of time but it worked out in the end.  My point is that I underestimated the additional cost for the roof and the floor.  I had also underestimated the time it took to build it..........and then I had to paint it.

So if your thinking of running to your local hardware store to buy a shed - Don't! Or if you do budget for another 600 - $800 dollars for all the additional stuff you're going to need.  Then time.  Lots of time. Oh and the paint.
