Questions When Designing Your Own Shed

Sometimes the most efficient way to get the shed you want and need is to design it yourself. You’re the one who knows what you’ll store in it and how much space you’ve got to accommodate a new structure. By thinking through the following questions, you’ll give yourself a better chance at making the right choices as you go through the design process.

What are the top questions to consider when designing a shed?

How Will I Use It?

You probably have a pretty good idea of how you plan to use a new shed. Consider possible future uses for your shed, as well. Once the gardening season is over or you’re finished with your landscaping project in the back yard, how will the shed come in handy then? Perhaps you already know that a new shed will be useful for any future project you dig into. If so, proceed with pride!

What’s My Budget?

Depending on the size of your shed and any additional features such as skylights and windows, you’ll need to establish a realistic budget to help you navigate the shed-designing waters. We at Mornington Peninsula Sheds offer a variety of options for your shed customisation. Once you know exactly how much you intend on spending to create your custom shed, we can help you iron out the details so you get exactly what you want.

How Much Space Do I Need?

Whether you are an individual who’d like some additional storage in your yard or a commercial business in need of a large garage for manufacturing purposes, you’ll need to figure out just exactly how much space will be needed in a new shed. Take time to calculate how much space you already have, how well it’s being used, and what could be done to make your current system work as well as possible for you. Once you’ve decided a new shed is in order and you know how much space will fill your needs, you’ve got the information necessary to really begin the building process.

We at Mornington Peninsula Sheds are proud to offer you the option of designing your own shed. Not every garage is made equal and there’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to features and design components. Whether you’ve got a specific size and design in mind or you’re still working to iron out the details, we’re more than happy to help you get exactly what you want in a new shed.
