Electrical work is of more concern due to the risk involved. This is especially true if you’ll be installing a circuit or two in the electrical panel dedicated to the shed. It’s not uncommon to DIY a shed and hire an electrician to wire it.

While the main outlay for your project will obviously be your 10×20 storage shed cost, there are usually some other expenses to keep in mind.
Our utility building is an excellent choice for storing your garden tools, lawn mowers, and just about anything else you might imagine. It’s a good option for you if you’re on the market for a utility building at a lower cost and don’t need all the features.
Our shed floor is built with 3/4″ pressure treated plywood over 12″ o.c. joists. The low quality shed is built with 5/8″ untreated oriented strand board (OSB) over 16″ o.c. joists. OSB is particularly susceptible to buckling and warping when exposed to high moisture levels. This is especially the case at the edges/joints. Pressure treated plywood, on the other hand, is a much more durable surface that will handle moderate moisture very well, and could be sealed for additional protection. For the best surface, 3/4″ tongue-and-groove plywood could be used to further abate buckling.
Suncast’s Stow-Away and their Glide-top lid horizontal sheds come across very favourably in reviews on the small scale sheds, they are worth inspecting.
I like how you said that a shed can be a good place where you can get a bit of a break from your responsibilities and things. It has been a long time since I have taken a break from what I am doing and I could really use one. My wife and I will have to have a talk and see if we can afford to get a nice shed.
Also keep in mind how you will use the shed to help determine the type and placement of shed doors that will work best for you. If you are storing large lawn equipment, be sure to look for sheds with double doors that open wide. Do you need your doors to be on the shorter side of the shed to give you more straight and deep "parking" space inside, or on the longer side for easier access to all items?
However, if you would like to avoid the risk of missing an essential component, you should think about assembling your shed from a shed kit. Going this route allows you the satisfaction of working with your hands to improve your property, while also taking some of the risk and dirty work out of assembling your materials.
