Dan McGrath made his own custom shed in his yard and documented the process with notes and photos. He writes:

Why build your own shed? Well, I just don’t like the ones you see for sale in shops, they are flimsy and expensive, my DIY shed is neither of these things. Additionally it is exactly the size I want, and built to my spec, and I think it looks nice – if you like the cube look.

    I built my own shed as well, it’s a great project. I used plans from Wikihow.com.

    I agree that building your own shed is the way to go. It’s one of the best memories I have with my dad.

    Thanks,
    Bill
