The secret craftsmanship of the Amish lies in the many designs styles hand crafted hinges and blacksmith metal accessories. Unfortunately many of the blacksmith metals have been replaced by modern technology yet the design of the shed with its many features is what grabbed the attention of the outside world. Many Amish sheds are built with pine or cedar wood and sustainable materials in a controlled environment. They are also decorated with mini shutters and windows flower boxes and sometimes you will even see a tiny cupola on the roof. You will also see them built with hip-roofs gables and barn style doors.
Consider the access to your garden shed. It must be wide enough to accommodate larger pieces of equipment like garden tillers and lawn mowers. Are there two doors or one? Are they sliding or swinging? Also consider lighting. You needs might include putting in electrical fixtures but usually there is enough natural light from large windows or cupolas to handle most projects like potting plants. Gardening after all is a daytime venture. Dont forget a storage system for small items such as hand tools gloves and maintenance parts.
The clerestory style shed is another shed design with a very distinctive roof. It is very well suited for a larger backyard with a well-developed garden. The structure of the roof consists of a row of windows at the top of the roof. These a know as clerestory windows. The windows allow sunlight to travel through them and spread into the shed structure. This provides excellent lighting from the sun. This also makes the shed into a great place to work or store potting plants. Because of its roof design it is the most complicated of the sheds mentioned here.
Figure out what design elements you would like to include in your garden shed design. Also consider storage. For some there can never be enough storage. Remember to allow for expansion to fit future needs and projects. Part of every good construction project is planning. Plan for anything out of the ordinary like material shortages and mistakes in measuring and cutting which inevitably happen and your project will go well. Take your time and carefully avoid the mistakes that plague a construction site. Follow your plan step by step. Maintain a list of everything you need for the project-tools and materials.
Planning is the secret to achieve a successful garden shed design. Be aware that there always will be problems and challenges no matter what. Be aware of these elements and things will go much smoother. Plan the way you going to build your shed and stick to it. Dont ever rush because this is when mistakes crept in. Measure more than once so that you dont waste when you cut the material to size. Make sure that you keep a complete list of all the parts and tools so that your operation goes smooth when building a garden shed. Do not vary from the design plan; it can save you a lot of time and money.
