A well-built wooden shed can serve as an aesthetic feature in your landscape, in addition to serving as a storage space for lawnmowers, rakes, shovels and other tools. However, designing and building a wooden shed from scratch can be a hassle, especially when it comes to gathering all of the materials you need and cutting them to their proper measurements. Fortunately, several companies offer do-it-yourself wooden shed kits, which provide all of the prefabricated parts for you to assemble.

Ponderosa Pines

All of the do-it-yourself wooden shed kits that Ponderosa Pines Wood Products offer come with several basic features. These include a sturdy four-foot entrance ramp that consists of 2-by-6-inch beams; four windows, all of which have shutters surrounding them, and flower boxes below them; and asphalt shingles that are guaranteed to last 25 years. Other standard features that Ponderosa Pines offer include a 2-by-6 base frame construction for the door, galvanised hinges and hasps, and a 1-by-6 construction for the roofing and flooring. Additional features, which you can order at an added cost, include extra windows and doors, a loft space and utility shelves. The Ponderosa Pines wooden shed kits are available in a variety of floor sizes, ranging from 8-by-8 feet to 10-by-10 feet, to 12-by-12 feet, and larger.

Norfab Sheds

Norfab Sheds offers nine wooden shed styles to choose from, all of which have the names of animals. The sizes of these animals are roughly in proportion to the sizes of the sheds they lend their names to. For example, the Badger Series shed, which has 2-by-3-inch spruce framing, is on the small side. It has an eight-foot width, and available depths of four, eight, 12 and 16 feet. In comparison, the Grizzly Series shed, which has the same type of framing, is larger. It has a width of eight feet, and available depths of eight, 12 and 16 feet. The Bison shed is even larger than the Grizzly. It utilises sturdier, 2-by-4 foot spruce framing and has a 12-foot width. Depth options for the Bison include 12 feet, 16 feet, 20 feet and 24 feet.

ScreenHouses Unlimited

The sheds in the Urban series features 2-by-3-inch wood-beam construction and have available widths of eight feet and 10 feet. In comparison, sheds in the Estate series have a sturdier, 2 by- 4-inch beam construction and are available with six-foot, eight-foot, 10-foot and 12-foot widths.
