    You suggest purchasing all the materials before starting building, but that might mean it is laying around for a while, so do I need to store and protect some of the timber from bad weather conditions while I am building?

    • Gary says:

      Jason just try to keep it dry and off the ground. Use strips of timber, whatever you can find, every foot or so to help hold and stack it properly.

    The final option is to have the panels pressure treated; this allows you to never worry
    about treating the shed yourself as the pressure treatment will fully protect the
    wood. Metal sheds are hard-wearing as they are typically coated with plastic, process painted metal sheets or vinyl, to make it stronger and protect it from the elements.
    For example, next to the pool if it’s to be used as a pool cabana or near the garden if you’ll use it to store garden tools & equipment.

      Thank you for your suggestion Dwayne.

      I much prefer wooden sheds for aesthetic reasons, and they are also very versatile in that you can easily renovate and extend as your needs grow.

      Also a wooden shed is far more resistant to impact; consider accidental damage made from a stray football … it would be much easier to repair a timber panel than a metal one

      Given there is more maintenance with a wooden shed, but to me it is a small price to pay for building something in my garden that enhances the environment and provides greater visual appeal.

    The price they sell for can really motivate you to built your own. This is perfect for seed germination and for plant propagation, thus
    honing our skills to become more efficient and professional at what we
    like doing best. Show two or three videos in a week
    that highlight these topics.
