a mad man so i figure id save some cash and instead of buying a built shed i bought a kit omg to many pieces and the instructions make no sense at all. plus your holding up huge panels as you try to screw them together . i have walls done and frame but still need to do rest of roof wish they would at least have arrows marking up or left or right or a video where someone told us what to do

Designed and built a shed in the summer of 2018. Thought about teaching a class at the local makerspace afterwards titled How not to design and build your own shed for less than $1000 in a few short weekends. No idea what it ultimately cost me buying materials at a then historic high, but it was well north of $1000 and it took every weekend all summer and about 2 weeks of vacation time.

I built a metal shed in a day....it was a looooooong day. I built the block foundation, piers and marine grade plywood floor the day before.
Good gosh those things have a lot of screws. But it was cheap and easy to build. That was in '98 and it's still standing at the house I used to live in. I used 24 trailer anchors to hold the floor to the ground and bolted the shed to the floor. In hurricane Isabell dude lost all kinds of trees, the roof on a wooden shed and a fence but not the shed.

My last shed arrived on a truck. It was a 1/2 price pre-owned Leonard building.

With all due respect, if you made a show on your life i'd watch the hell out of it😂
Oh! If Raggie had a YouTube channel, he'd have 1 Million subs. in no time. All you need is a tri-pod, and a Smartphone.

Will admit, a backyard shed is something I'd definitely buy Pre-Made. Just have the delivery guys put the assembled shed where I want it, give them a huge tip for doing that.

There's a Home Depot right next door to one of my two full-time jobs.
They have some lovely Pre-Made sheds on display. Not a huge selection but plenty enough for a man looking for a shed.

Getting Resident Evil Village vibes from that pic.
Am I going to get two fingers bitten off by a Werewolf?
Or, going to encounter Lady Dimitrescu and her 3 daughters? 😁
