Need Outdoor Garden Shed Plans?

My wife and I started our first garden last year.
It turned out so good that we are going to do another one this year.
We already have all the gardening equipment that we bought last year like a wheelbarrow, shovel, rake, bags of soil, bone meal, pots and other random garden equipment...
and guess where we stored it all for the winter? Yes the garage! Well that is the first and last year we will do that.
Now I need to start looking for a good set of outdoor garden shed plans.
I did not realize that there is a lot of things that you need to be aware of when building a structure like this.
The one thing that I never really thought about was how to make sure the ground below your shed does not settle making your shed out of level.
Please buy a set of shed plans that tells you how to build a foundation properly, it will save you a huge headache in the end.
Beware of thieves as they love sheds because it is easy to sell lawn and garden equipment to pawn shops or flea markets so make sure you invest in a good solid door with strong locks.
It is also a good idea to get a set of outdoor garden shed plans that are bigger then you think you will need because it really does fill up fast and it's always nice to have extra storage space.
Make sure that the outdoor garden shed plans have roof vents because if you live somewhere that gets hot the inside of your shed will become unbearable and might even damage some things you have stored in it.
If you want your garden shed to last for years to come then do not use cheap lumber because it will just start rotting.
You should always use pressure treated wood and then primer and paint it.
Along with the fact that a garden shed is nice to have it will actually increase the value of your property! If you do decide to build the storage unit make sure you get a good set of outdoor garden shed plans because it will make your life easy and will also save you money and time.
