Is it Cheaper to Build Your Own Shed?

by Jessie Right on Oct 4, 2018

If your home is becoming crowded with clutter and your garage is overflowing at the seams – to the point that you don’t even remember what you do and do not own – it’s time to look into the storage shed plans online.

You could rent a storage unit, but then you would have transport your stuff back and forth between the storage facility and your house. And you would have to pay rent. A better option, if you have sufficient space, is to buy or build a storage shed on your property. A shed will allow you to access your property quickly and conveniently – and will free up space so you can finally organize or pull your vehicle into your garage. Once you buy a shed or buy the materials to build one, you’ll incur no additional expenses. So… Does it make more sense to rent a storage unit or install a storage shed on your property? The answer is simple: Buying or building a shed is clearly a better option than renting a storage unit.

If you desire your own special space to rival your significant other’s man cave, you could convert a bedroom in your house into your peaceful getaway. But … is it really such a “getaway” if you’re under the same roof as those people you occasionally wish to get away from? No. You need a free-standing space you can call your own and decorate and furnish to your heart’s desire. You need a She shed! She sheds are gaining popularity everywhere because women have realized they need their own version of the man cave! Before you can create your amazing she shed, you need a shed.

This leads us to the next question: Should you buy a shed or build a storage or she shed yourself? Answering this question will require more consideration because there are pros and cons to both options. Let’s explore those so you can make the right choice for you!

Arguments in Favor of Buying a Premade Shed

The most obvious benefit of buying a shed is that you can go into a store (or onto a website), look at different shed models, decide which one you want, pay for it, and have it delivered and set up usually in a matter of days. If you are in a rush to begin using a shed, buying one is probably your best bet. Of course, the flip side of this is that pre-made sheds are expensive. Yes, they are convenient, but you will be paying a pretty penny for that convenience.

Another reason you might decide to buy a shed rather than build on yourself is that you won’t need to own or buy any tools. And, you won’t need to know how to or learn to use those tools. And, because premade sheds are usually factory assembled and shipped as one unit, you can be fairly certain that they’ll be structurally sound and in good condition.

Arguments in Favor of Building Your Own Shed

The biggest benefit of building your own shed is that you’ll probably save a lot of money as opposed to buying one. Building your own shed requires you to buy a building plan, materials, and tools you’ll need to complete the job. However, you will still come out ahead from a cost standpoint. Pre-made sheds are not only quite expensive, but they are also very expensive to ship from the store or manufacturer to your home. When you build your own shed, you do not have to pay any shipping fees.

Another compelling argument in favor of building your own shed is that you can customize it to your liking. You can choose the type of wood you will use, the hardware, the paint color, the roofing materials, and the decorative touches that will make it aesthetically appealing to you. If you are eco-conscious, you can make sure that you’re choosing recycled and green building components that won’t harm the earth.

So … Should You Buy Or Build A New Shed?

Your answer to this question will probably be different than other readers’ answers to this question. And to come up with the answer that is right for you, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you relatively comfortable using power tools?
  • Are you a “project person”?
  • Do you have a couple of days to devote to a project?
  • Do you prefer solutions that are quick and easy or solutions that take longer and require effort – but that leaves you feeling a proud sense of accomplishment?
  • Do you enjoy spending time outdoors?
  • Are you willing to get your hands dirty?
  • Do enjoy experimenting with designs, materials, and color schemes?

If you’ve answered “yes” to most of these questions and value the pride that comes with a job well done, you’ll probably enjoy building your own shed! To be certain, this will be a challenging project. But that’s one compelling reason to go for it! Your hard work will pay off in the long run, and you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment every time you use your new shed.
