What Style of Shed Do You Want?
Another thing you want to consider is the style of shed you want. You want it to blend in well with the surrounding and your house if it is on your lot. If you have a specific style going for your house you might want to stick with that for your shed as well.

You have a few options when it comes to deciding in what format you want your shed plans. On this page we have decided to go with plans that are either downloadable which means that you get instant access to your plans or plans that you can order online in form of a book or blueprint. These plans you order online and get them send to your door.
We chose these two ways to make it as easy as possible for you.
- Download Online – get instant access to your plans.
- Order Online – get them send to your door.
We also review these plans/products for you to get a good understanding of what it is you get and what other people before you have thought.

Is it best to go with a product that offers multiple products or should you just get the one shed plan that you intend to build? We will discuss that too in a later post.
