One of the most enjoyable parts of a building a DIY shed design is the planning part. While it may sound boring and pretty simple to plan a shed it is actually quite the opposite. With today's building materials and new innovations many people treat their sheds like little houses and add many cool features.
Let The Sun Shine In!
Windows are a great addition to the project and can do many things other then just look good. First a good window will let both air and sunlight into the structure. This will help to cut down on both mold growth and temperatures in warmer weather. For most sheds any old window will do and you do not have to get fancy with special glass and high thermal ratings, although you could if you wanted to because yo are in complete control when building an planning your own!
Make Getting In and Out a Snap!
Another great option is to add double steel barn doors or even an overhead door as the main access point. This will allow you to move larger items like trains in and out with ease. Steel also makes a nice low maintenance material that will last along time. You can also use steel for any side secondary access doors as well! In addition steel adds a little extra security over wood!
Light It Up!
Another cool option you can add is lighting to the inside and outside of your backyard tool shed project! This will come in handy when you are working early in the morning or late into the night. And exterior lighting will help accent your shed and make it look more like a little house!
The sheed ideas you have really are endless and if you get a good package of DIY shed construction plans you will have many ideas to look at and choose from. You will also be able to modify them to fit into your budget and requirements, this is something you can not get with a pre fab unit from the home improvement store!
