My wife has been asking me for quite awhile know to clean out the garage. The only reason I have not done it is that I have nowhere to put the stuff. I have thought about buying a storage shed and even looked around for one. However, they are too expensive and I donít have the money to buy one at the moment.
I thought that maybe I could save money if I just built one myself. I started building that weekend and it was chaos. I realised I had no idea how to build a shed. I found it quite weird because I am a welder fabricator and build aluminum boats for a living.
I got so frustrated I went inside and just sat on the couch. Now not only did I not have a shed but also I spent the only extra money I had and wasted a bunch of time on nothing. My wife asked me what was wrong so I told her the story. Being the woman that she is she jumped online and in about 5 minutes found me plans to build a shed with pallets.
At first, I thought ya right but after I looked at the plans, which a professional made, I decided to try it. My wife was very happy because I would finally get rid of all my pallets out back that I had collected over the years.†
It took me a weekend to build the shed and it looked surprisingly good. My wife and I were both standing there looking at the new shed and she turned to me and said, ďDid you start cleaning the garage yet?Ē We both started laughing. Then I notice that she was not laughing anymore and so I headed to the garage.
If you want your shed to turn out looking good and not take forever to build you need a plan. The secret to building a good quality shed is in following proven plans, step-by-step guides and detailed blueprints.
Now if you do not have a lot of money to spend on building a shed you can still build a shed with pallets. My little secret to free lumber is welding shops. Stop by some welding shops in your area and just ask them if they have any pallets you could have.
The great thing about getting them from a welding shop is that they get in 20x5 foot pallets, which have some nice lumber, like 4x4ís on them.
