Pressure treated timber or lumber is advisable to be used for skids as they will be bearing the weight of the shed and its contents so that you will be able to move or transfer your shed to a new location putting angle ends is necessary, plus they ake good decorations as well. With a good set of detailed plans, you yourself will be able to do the construction job. Steer clear of trees that may act as a hindrance to your roof, or have falling branches and fruits that can damage it. Also, you need to check with your local planning and zoning commission about your plans and the dimensions of your brick shed. Step 2. Be sure to clean the area where you plan to build your brick shed. To help you achieve this, you will need tools like a spade, shovel, post-hole digger and a wheel barrow. Don t forget that you will also need a good pair of goggles to protect your eyes and a set of industrial gloves to protect your hands. To make your shed look beautiful, you may want to finish it off with some paint. Other aspects that can affect your decision making is the cost, ease of maintenance, its durability and availability. For those who prioritize cost as their concern, then a tin siding is the perfect choice for you. A tin shed is virtually easy to construct. But with the low cost comes with an issue of durability. Never leave your shed door open even if you re working on a project or tending to your garden. All it takes is a split second for your child to rush in and play with your tools. Have a talk with your child; explain to them the dangers that may happen if they play with your tools and equipment. Remind them that these are not toys and to never play with them. But for other parts of the shed, you wouldn t need steel that are as strong, for example, for the structure or frame, you will need stronger steel, especially the rafters for roof support, but for the walls and the roof itself, sheet metal would suffice, or even corrugated steel sheets. Aside from the reputation steel has of good strength, steel is also highly desired as a building material because it requires minimal maintenance and there is virtually no infestation of bugs like termites or even carpenter bees.
