Ultimate Garden Shed DIY

Sheds September 27, 2016

diy-garden-shed

Having a garden shed or a picnic hut in your backyard can be really nice. You can spend time reading the latest novel or recently published magazine during your free hours. Weekends can also be enjoyed in your DIY garden shed. What a beautiful space to relax and unwind!

This DIY shed is something like a usual American chicken pen. The walls are made with OSB which is more economical than plywood. The tarpaper serves as a protector of the walls and roof especially during winter season.

The minimalistic design allows ample daylight and fresh air to flow naturally. And because the architectural design is simple, it can be used as a multipurpose space.

To build this garden shed, you need a sander, a table saw, a drill, a hammer, a gun nailer, a sealer and a tape measure. Other materials are the following:

• 2×6 Beams
• Hallow Blocks
• 4×4 Post
• 2” thick Boards
• 1×4 Cedar Board
• Green-treat Plywood – for flooring and doors
• Green-treated Floor Framing
• OSB
• Roof Shingles
• Deck Bolts
• Nailes
• Tarpaper
• Door Hinges
• Door Knobs
• Bolt Lock
• Window Frames
• Fascia Panels and Trim

Enjoy building your DIY garden hut and excite yourself with its versatile uses. You can also add some ornaments around it and decorate it with natural materials to make it more beautiful and cozy.
