1. How Much Does a Shed Cost?One of the main considerations a house owner has when planning on building a shed is, “How muchdoes it cost?” The reply to that question is complicated. The cost of building a shed depends uponmany different elements. First, what the price of supplies are in your local area. Secondly, whether ornot it is a DYI project or demands a handyman/contractor. Some localities even require permits forsheds over a certain size. How fancy or plain is it?So how do you know what to expect to have to pay for building your shed? One solution would be totake your set of plans down to the local lumber yard and have them draw up a materials list and providepricing. This of course would not include any labor or permit costs. One more method would be to putyour plans out for bid with a local builder. This estimation would include labor and other miscellaneouscosts. The final approach is to make use of a "rule of thumb" extrapolation.This is all well and good for an after-the-fact cost evaluation. However, what you want to know beforeyou even start down that road is what would a bare bones reply to the question, “How much does ashed cost?” OK, let’s go through a typical 8 X 8 X 8 flat topped shed with one door and one windowdesigned on a framed floor foundation. This is about as basic as you can get and we can extrapolatefrom this for other sized sheds. (The costs set forth were compiled from a main National big box storecost in effect at the time of this writing.)Materials List -24 - 2” x 4” studs for walls and door and window bracing @ $2.22 each = $53.288 - 2” x 4” x 8 boards for top and bottom dishes @ $3.40 each = $27.208 - 2” x 6” x 8 boards for floor joists and rim joists @ $3.13 each = $25.048 - 2” x 6” x 10 boards for rafters @ $4.97 each = $39.762 - 23/32” OSB T&G decking for floor @ $14.37 each = $28.7411 - 7/16” OSB sheeting for exterior walls and roof @ $7.47 = $82.171 - set of asphalt roofing material @ $42.00 = $42.001 - 3 pre hung door @ $49.00 = $49.001 - 24” x 30” pre hung window @ $42.00 = $42.001 - lot of fasteners @ $25.00 = $25.001 - lot of paint to protect the outside @ $25.00 = $25.00Total = $439.19This is the cost of building a shed when using all new materials and undertaking all the work oneself.Using the advantage of periodic sales, used or salvaged material or even substituting for differentproducts the cost can be diminished. Extrapolating, the shed costs $6.87 per sq. foot to build. To arriveat a base approximation, for planning purposes only, multiply the square footage of your project by$7.00 and add ten percent. This will give you an idea of what to budget for. Of course the fancier yougo the more the cost will rise. 1
