Where Will Your Building Go?

Decide on the location you want to put your storage building in your yard or on your property. Measure that area carefully. Make sure to measure the width, length, and also the height. Look for low tree limbs, wires, and other elevated obstacles.

Does The Land Slope?

While the site for your building doesn’t have to be perfectly flat, ideally there should not be more than a 2 foot slope from the highest corner. Placing your shed on a steeper slope may cause problems keeping it level. We suggest purchasing a line level from your local hardware store to check how level your area is. And check out this This Old House video on how to properly use a line level.

Is the path to the shed site clear?

Take a look at the route through your property that our truck and trailer will have to travel for delivering your building. Be sure to note any obstacles such as fences, foliage, playsets, etc., and evaluate whether your site will need any prep work before we install your building.

What is going inside the building?

Make a list of all the items you are intending on putting into your storage building, then make a rough estimate on the size of each item. The total volume of things going into the shed will help you determine the right size for your needs, it is also important to give yourself some added room to grow- and maneuver around inside the building.
