    The easiest installation is to buy a pre-made kit. Most local home centers carry them...and if you have any basic carpentry skills, you should be able to put it together. Make sure to level the ground underneath and also put down whatever type of base you want under it...gravel, sand, pavers, wood floor, concrete, etc.

    Home Depot. They have a lot to choose from. Size and shape depend on what you want. How big? Windows? Skylights? A second story or loft?

    Whatever style of shed that you choose, make sure that the ground beneath where the shed is going, is made level first. Putting large concrete flat patio pavers over the ground will ensure that mininal weeds grow up, and will give a solid, waterproof, maintenace-free base to anchor the shed into.

    If you have any carpentry skills at all? You can buy the materials and build a shed from scratch a whole lot cheaper then buying a kit! Although building your own will take more time since your having to cut every piece yourself! All depends what’s most important to you, money or time? Another advantage to building your own though, is you can design and build it to any size you want. Where your stuck to whatever size a kit is that you buy! You’ll need to decide what your doing for a floor? Either way you’re going to want your shed up off the ground where it’s not sitting in water! Your choice you you want a gravel, cement, or wood floor? So doing a wood floor, build it first and level it up and where it’s completely off the ground a foot or so! Then build your walls and you can put on siding and even paint it before standing it into place! When I built mine, my back wall was a foot shorter then the front wall and my side walls were made to taper that foot difference as well. That way my 2x6 rafters already angled for my roof to have run off when it rained! Little time consuming and easier if you have some help! Good luck

    As you build it once, but maintain it for years, I vote for the vinyl sided and roofed KIT. Has plywood floor. I used the sheet metal for two, but they were both severely damaged by wind storms. I would only use the vinyl to replace them.
