Before You Buy Your Garden Shed

As you research options and before you buy your garden shed, consider these things. From building permits and laying a level foundation to choosing the right siding color and deciding on add-ons, there’s a lot to think about when shed shopping.

  1. Zoning and permits. Remember to check with your township about zoning and building permits. It's better to know this information before making a significant purchase.

  2. Level foundation. Before getting started, understand the importance of laying a solid shed foundation. Many choose Class 5 gravel or concrete as their shed base material.

  3. Siding styles. Determine which siding style is best for you. LP’s wood paneling and wood lap siding options are available for our Garden Shed XL — they're both, attractive, durable, and easy to clean.

  4. Color options. Think about which siding and trim colors will look nice in your backyard or as a complement to your house color.

  5. Natural lighting. If you’re planning to work inside your garden shed or grow starter plans, make sure the interior can get plenty of natural light. Depending on gardening needs, wall-to-wall windows, skylights, dormers, or just a few window types you add to your Garden Shed XL package.

  6. See a shed model. Always see an example shed up close before purchasing. At Dakota Storage Buildings, we invite you to visit one of our display locations in South Dakota or Minnesota to experience our built well, built tough sheds. The sheds at each site are open to walk through, snap pictures, and pick up literature about our sheds and products. 

  7. Use a 3-D tool online. Use online shed configurator to customize your Garden Shed XL. Our configurator is super easy to use. You can zoom, rotate, and switch colors at a click of the mouse! You can swap out windows (or add more!), move doors, and change the shingles all with your computer, tablet or phone.

    If you want to start from scratch and build your own garden shed, you can do that, too! While we created the Garden Shed XL package to make the buying process easy, if you’d prefer upgrades and add-ons, go for it. Find the right garden shed should be fun, not laborious or boring.
