Shed light on building the perfect shed. Whether you’re looking to create a space to store lawn furniture and a mower, or seeking a quiet respite to sneak away, a shed has the potential to be something special. It can match your home, integrate with your space, and reflect your personal style. Build A Shed, a complete collection of best-of articles from Fine Homebuilding magazine, walks you through step-by-step instructions for building five different sheds including a garden shed, saltbox potting shed, Colonial-style shed, and a Gambrel storage shed.

Plan your work…then work your plan. By paying attention to scale and location, you can build a shed that is the exact structure you want. A shed that is too large will appear out of place and diminish the usefulness of the yard, so it’s important to scale it right. You may also want to draw inspiration from the house, such as from siding and trim elements, to match in a smaller scale.

Build A Shed features:

  • In-depth planning advice on building a shed, including a rundown of important factors to consider before starting the construction phase
  • 5 complete, step-by-step instructions for sheds plus ideas for other types of sheds
  • Ideas for customizing a shed
  • And much more

Build A Shed covers everything you need to consider—from site location and size to roof and doors—before ever picking up a hammer. It’s the smartest way to build a shed that will become an integral part of the overall design of your garden.
