This garden shed adds value to your home while saving thousands over the cost of hiring a professional to do it for you.
The most common cost per square foot for a professionally built shed is around $50 a square foot if the interior will not be finished. If you intend to finish the interior for an office or workshop and need to insulate it and add things like electricity, expect your costs to go as high as $200 a square foot.
The vast majority of sheds are uninsulated. The only time you need to insulate a shed is when it will be used as a workplace. Insulation has a wide range of costs, from low-cost fiberglass to ICF blocks. Expect to spend at least $200 on insulating a basic shed. Larger sheds, sheds with living areas above them, and sheds built from ICF blocks have higher costs.
This is the perfect shed for storing lawn mowers, garden equipment, adult and child bicycles, and many other smaller but heavy items.
