Build The Perfect Workshop or Garden Shed
Growing up I always wished I had my own workroom that I could go and do my own thing. Leave my projects as they were till I completed them. Having a space that was mine, for my things. A place that no-one would disturb.
Now I am older I do have my own workshop – my shed.
Having a shed that is your workshop, means having an area that you can use and leave as you wish. When you are working on a project, you may not always be able to complete each stage in the time you have available. Without a place of your own, this might mean having to put your equipment and tools away until the next time you have time to work on it.
This process of packing and unpacking is one of the major reasons people fail to finish a project.
Having a space of your own, means that you can leave your project as is and return and pick up where you left off. Most people who have their own work area find that they are far more productive and enjoy the experience far more than if they have to keep packing up and unpacking their gear and/or project.
Having a garden shed allows you to store all your Home or garden equipment that would normally be housed in your garage. I suspect that you might know… having to navigate around your ladder, wheelbarrow or lawnmower when trying to access your car is not a nice experience and one that often leads to allot of cursing.
Garden equipment and utility items should be housed in their own separate garden shed. This should be conveniently located in a central but out-of-the-way place in your garden.
A garden shed can also be a thing of beauty. Many people spend allot of money to have an aesthetically pleasing shed to compliment their garden.
Start off with knowing what you want to make. Once you have found the perfect design, you need to invest in a good set of workshop plans or shed plans. These should explain the exact steps down to the smallest detail of how to complete your project. Don’t forget, you don’t want to be half-way through the project and find that you are stuck and need professional help.
Having a good set of workshop plans or garden shed plans including videos to show you what and when to do the necessary steps is a must for any DIY builder or woodworker. If you require a good resource for these, check out my links at the end of my article.
Whatever you decide, whether to purchase a ready made item or build it yourself, remember this. The aim is to enjoy the finished product. Life is to be enjoyed. Best of luck to you.
