If you think you might like to buy a 12×16 shed, here are several things you should consider:
The most common cost per square foot for a professionally built shed is around $50 a square foot if the interior will not be finished. If you intend to finish the interior for an office or workshop and need to insulate it and add things like electricity, expect your costs to go as high as $200 a square foot. .
We have adopted several ways to do business from a safe distance: over the phone, online, tour yourself, or by appointment at one of our clean and safe offices.
A 12×16 shed can comfortably fit two small pieces of outdoor equipment, such as a lawn mower or a 4-wheeler. Keep in mind that if you store heavier items in your shed, such as a lawnmower or a 4-wheeler, you may want to add a shed ramp. If you want to learn more about shed ramps, read our “Shed Ramps: A Comprehensive Overview” article. Besides these two pieces of equipment, there will be room to maneuver them and walk around them. However, depending on your door placement, you may have to move one piece of equipment out of the shed before you can access the other piece of equipment.
While the main outlay for your project will obviously be your 10×20 storage shed cost, there are usually some other expenses to keep in mind.
Use a spirit level to plumb the posts. Drill pilot holes and insert 3″ lag screws to lock them to the floor frame. Notice the middle posts that are needed to support the top beam.
Metal sheds can be purchased in a kit, but these are generally flimsy and not recommended for any area that sees high winds or snow because they cannot hold up well enough to either one. A metal shed with a lumber frame with metal walls and roof can be built anywhere. Metal is limited in style and color options, but if you are custom building with a wood frame, you can have your shed built to nearly any size. A wooden-framed metal shed costs around $4,500.
The next project is also about a firewood rack, but this is slightly larger. While it doesn’t have a roof, the rack is large enough to store a significant quantity of firewood. If you are looking for a quick and cheap project (under 10$), this project is the right one for your needs. You can make several units if you have a larger quantity to store. MORE >>

If you start researching the tools and supplies needed to complete your project and decide to skip that extra stress, you still have the option of going with a fully constructed 10×20 shed. In that case, the shed will be pre-assembled by an experienced team at a construction facility and transported directly to your location. You will need to make sure that you have an access route on your property that is at least 2’ wider than the width of your shed; for a 10×20 storage shed your access should be at least 12’ wide. If your access point is not wide enough to allow entry of the fully constructed shed, contact Sheds Unlimited to review our options for on-site assembly.
If you live in the mountains and you have a nice small cabin, you should definitely build this saltbox and rustic wood shed. I really like the rough design with a few farmhouse influences. The slope of the roof is ideal for areas with heavy snow. This shed is beautiful but i doesn’t make any compromise when speaking about the easy access to the interior of to the side panels. MORE >>
However, if you would like to avoid the risk of missing an essential component, you should think about assembling your shed from a shed kit. Going this route allows you the satisfaction of working with your hands to improve your property, while also taking some of the risk and dirty work out of assembling your materials.

Use 1×6 slats for the side walls. Make the angle cut to the slat that goes to the top. Place 3″ spacers between the slats, to create even gaps. Drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws to secure the slats to the posts.
