Is it cheaper to build your own shed?

Nearly every single garden in the UK has a shed, they are a fantastic option for storage and come in several different shapes, sizes, and materials. You can even get sheds that are visually pleasing for different reasons. You can buy modern-looking sheds made out of plastic or metal or wooden sheds.

With so many resources laying around which you can pick up free a lot of the time on local selling platforms or unwanted wood from local businesses, you can build a shed a lot cheaper than a store-bought one.

Sheds depending on size can cost over a thousand pound! If you can be savvy then you can easily build your own shed far cheaper than this but you need to think about a few things first.

Is your home-built shed going to look as good a shop bought one? Once sourcing materials will you be able to ensure that the structure is correct? If it isn’t it could fall down or could be a serious hazard.

Although it could potentially be cheaper to build your own, it probably won’t look as good, could be dangerous and it could end up costing more in supplies to get a good finish.
