Home Depot & Costco – Wood Shed Kits

Both Home Depot and Costco offer a variety of wood shed kits that are delivered curbside and ready to be assembled. Both require you to purchase your own paint and shingles which will allow you to match your shed to your home’s decor. Be sure to calculate the price of these materials into your total cost when you are comparing them with other options.

eBay – Used Wood Sheds

The biggest advantage to purchasing a used shed is the price. But before you consider buying a used shed over a new one, you should ask yourself the following questions.

Is it in good condition? However, you need to be careful and determine why the owner was selling the shed in the first place so that you don’t waste your money. If at all possible examine the shed or if you are not sure about what to look for, bring a friend with you who does. Make sure you look for signs of rotting wood or insect infestations. Take a close look at the condition of the roof. You may save money upfront, but if you have to re-invest your savings into repairs then it may not be worthwhile.

Can you move it in one piece? The biggest disadvantage to buying used is how to get your shed to your home. Most people don’t own a vehicle that is capable of moving such a large object and renting one could be rather costly and also end up cutting into your initial savings.

Can you take it apart? If you don’t have a vehicle that can move it in one piece, is it able to be taken apart to put back together when you get to your home? It’s not easy to take a wood shed apart and you may not want to invest in all of the man-hours required for such a big task.

WalMart – Wood Shed DIY Instructions

WalMart sells mostly plastic and resin sheds. The closest to a wooden shed that you can purchase from WalMart is a very basic do-it-yourself shed kit that comes with easy assembly instructions, a list of materials that you will need cut, and 39 brackets required to complete the building. You may save money choosing this option, but you should be sure that you have all of the tools required as well as the time and know-how to embark on this type of DIY project.
