Define your garden shelter project
Do you want to build a shelter in your garden? Before roll up your sleeves and give the first hammer, it is better to prepare to determine your needs and plan everything necessary. To guide you in your project, HandymanDuDimanche invites you to define and plan it to leave nothing to chance!
Step 1: Define the required skills
Riding or designing a garden shed is an operation that requires some skills in masonry, carpentry and sometimes even roofing, as well as patience and precision.
A handyman can perfectly consider mounting a shelter kit. To fully build your shelter from scratch, it is better to have a solid experience.
Step 2: Define the construction time and the necessary labor
The duration of the work is difficult to estimate because it depends on the shelter and your skills, but also the configuration of your garden.
It is quite conceivable to climb a garden shed by yourself even if the work will progress much more quickly if you get help.
Step 3: When to begin your project?
This type of construction site can be envisaged all year round, avoiding, if possible, days of rain, wind and extreme cold.
Step 4: Define and choose the necessary products and materials
To choose your garden shed, it will take into account your needs, but also the place you have and especially your budget.
For materials, we generally favor wood but it is possible to opt for PVC or metal.
Step 5: estimate the budget of your garden shed
Your budget can be extremely variable depending on size and material. Plan at least two hundred euros for a small model in metal and kit, not to mention the workforce.
Step 6: where to start?
Start by finding information by searching for information on the Internet or in specialized books and journals.
