Since the old (extremely cheap kit structure placed by former owner of garden) garden shed was on the verge of collapsing, I decided to build a sturdy new one that would last a long while. Rough dimensions: layout 2 x 3 meter, height 2.5 meter.
Step 1: Preparation
- remove (tear down, torch or otherwise) old shed
- Q: where do I leave all my tools during building of new shed?
- A: in temporarily relocated old shed (I managed to save some parts of the old shed, dragged them to another corner of the garden, reassembled and added a makeshift tarp roof) (this will not work if you've torched the old shed).
Also, make a nice sketch/drawing of general dimensions and construction details (I used Autocad to do this, but pencil and paper will work just fine of course).
In the course of building the shed, I altered many things and never looked at the drawing again, but you can solve a lot of problems beforehand if you make a sketch first.
