Build a Lean to Shed With These Easy Tips

Building a lean to shed can take just a day’s work if you put in the effort to plan it and if you just have a simple lean to shed in mind. It isn’t that hard and costly either and if space is a concern, a lean to shed is the best option for you.

First, you need to have the gorund works in building a lean-to shed. Selecting the spot on which to build a lean to shed is the first thing I did. Keeping the available space in mind, you can formulate the size of the lean to shed.

Aside from the space, you also need to consider the things which you are planning to store in the shed. You may start to keep in mind the largest equipment and you can work from there.

Another thing to consider is the budget. A lean to shed is probably the cheapest shed you can build, but you still need to make a trip tp the hardware store to get some needed materials.

Next, you need to decide what materials you are going to use in building a lean to shed. The most common are wood and concrete. It can also be a combination of both. When you are using wood, be sure to paint or stain it afterward to protect it from excessive moisture. For concrete, you only need to apply concrete slab. But you can paint it for added protection and aesthetic value.

Based on experience, some of the tools I’ve used in building a lean to shed are the following: shovel,saw, hammer and screwdriver. I may have forgetten a tool or two , but it’s all basically just common tools you probably already have in your tool box

In building a lean to shed, I strongly suggest that you work with a very easy to follow shed plan to avoid overlooking on some things. I’ve used one myself and it’s DIY resource that proved to be very helpful in providing ste-by-step instruction with pictures. I’ve used it in my other woodworking projects as well.
