How to build a garden storage shed guide

Shed plans and blueprints

There are many types and styles of projects that make up the perfect set of garden shed building plans.

Shed Plans provide you with the information you need to build the basic structure, from the foundation and footers, to the rafters and the roofing materials and everything in between. However, the other custom design elements you want.

● potting bench and table,

● wall cabinets to store insecticides and other harmful chemicals,

● pullout drawers for your small garden tools,

● wooden shelves that do not rust when fertilizers are stored on them,

● storage bins for all your other gardening supplies

require additional plans and blueprints.

Potting bench and a custom potter’s table,

Potting Bench or Potter’s Table, both terms used to describe the same basic garden shed feature.

The potting bench is a heavy-duty table or workbench. Built to withstand the rigors of all the seed starting, transplanting type stuff a gardener enjoys doing.

A proper gardener’s workbench will easily accommodate the heavy loads associated with bins full of potting soil mixes, watering cans, pump up sprayers and other garden tools.

Gardeners love to collect and commonly use to start flower and vegetable seeds, transplant seedlings and other such gardening tasks.

Wall Mounted Cabinets

Wall Mounted Cabinets, similar in construction to kitchen cabinets garden storage needs are a bit more demanding. There are those items that we need to keep secure from small children, our beloved pets and the occasional mischievous nocturnal neighbors.

Insecticides, plant foods, fertilizers and those heir loom tomato seeds we have been watching over for years are but just a few of our gardening treasures.

Pull out Drawers

Pull out Drawers, just like the ones in the kitchen we use to house all of our kitchen gadgets work equally well for all of our garden trowels and other goodies.

My oldest son while working on his gardening merit badge discovered organizing all his garden shears, hand pruners, and pre-cut lengths of biodegradable string, used to tie his veggie plants to their stakes and tomato cages indispensable.

Custom built wood storage shelves

Wooden Shelves, built much the same as a set of bookshelves. Granted the ole world craftsmen ship and ornate mill work is not the first thing that comes to mind when you thing of a set of shelves in a garden shed, but the woodworking techniques used to built them are the same.

Storage bins

Storage Bins, much the same as those shoe organizer features found in high-end home closets. Makes storing and organizing frequently used items at your fingertips a welcomed change from other commonly used and less convenient methods, say the five-gallon bucket in the corner method.
