This step by step project is about how to build a small shed. Building a small shed is a basic woodworking project but it will create a significant storage space. Nevertheless, there are a few things that you should take into account before starting the actual construction, such as its size, design or the materials you are going to use. Due to the large amount of information, we have split the project in several parts, so make sure you take a look over all of them.
This article is the second part of the project regarding the construction of a small storage shed. Therefore, we recommend you to check out the first part of the project, as to get accustomed with the techniques required to build the floor of the shed, as well as the rest of the project. Make sure you comply with the local building codes, as there are several requirements you need to comply with.
From our experience, we recommend you to invest in quality lumber, as the components need to be resistant to bad weather. Therefore, buy 2×4 pressure-treated lumber when building the wall frames, as they are highly durable. Always align the components and drill pilot holes, before inserting the galvanized screws into place. Plumb the walls with a level, before locking them to the floor with screws.
