|Will I need to get a building permit?
This depends on your local building department. The customer is responsible for
obtaining and paying for any required permits. We will assist you in this process by
providing engineered drawings if necessary free of charge to submit with your permit
application. You are responsible to check with your city on the permit requirements.
The customer should consult their local building department to determine what is
required. There are also city/neighborhood regulations that must be adhered to
whether a permit is required or not. These regulations can include building size and
height, property line, easement, and principal structure setbacks. These regulations
must be considered when choosing a suitable location for your new shed.
How do I know if the area I've chosen is suitable for the placement of
my new storage shed?
Your new building can be built right on the existing grade of most backyards. The
pressure treated skids that rest under the building are engineered for direct ground
contact. You will need to provide a level site for your building. This is the most
It is highly recommended that the ground does not slope more than 2-3". However,
any place where the grade slopes no more than 6" is suitable. The more the ground
slopes the more additional leveling materials are required, which raises the floor of the
shed off the ground. We level the skids under the building up to 6" with treated lumber
and wedges. If your site is not completely level our only option is to use these wedges
and shims to level the building which takes away from the overall appearance of your
Provide at least 2' of clearance from any trees, fences, overhanging limbs, and other
immovable objects. If your site is extremely soft or slopes more than 6" in the area
you've selected additional site preparation will be required before we arrive to build
your shed. Proper site prep insures less problems down the road. Additional leveling
charges may apply if the site does meet the requirements.

Do I need to be home when my new shed is being built?
You do not have to be home when your shed is built, however, the 4 corners of the
building and door placement must be clearly marked. If you have additional options
please provide a sketch for your builder to utilize during the construction process to
ensure proper placement.
What kind of paint or stain can I put on my new shed?
All Shed Shop buildings are primed and ready for 100% Acrylic Flat Latex exterior
paint. All Shed Shop buildings are caulked in and around the door areas, and corner
trim. The Smart Panel siding will not accept stain. The Classic Barn Standard has a
few small areas that may need to be primed before painting on the sidewall overhangs.
Your builder can point these out to you on site.
Will my lawn tractor or 4-wheeler damage the flooring on my shed?
Not at all, most Shed Shop buildings feature 3/4" Tongue and Groove LP ProStruct
flooring, set on floor joists that are spaced 1' on center, plus an aluminum door
threshold that protects the edge of the plywood from being damaged when moving
equipment in and out.
How soon after I order a shed can I expect it to be built?
When you order your new shed you will be given a building date usually within one
business day after approved estimate. Depending on the time of year and the
size/style/options your order contains we are 2-8 weeks out on build dates. Summer is
the busiest time for shed construction so lead times may be extended. Most projects
are just one day.
