sheds!!

well we got our new house last thursday and now i ahve a around 1/2 acre behind the house where can build stuff since we downgraded in house size but upsized in lot i lost my office im thinking of building a shed out back so i can disconnect my office from the house...

i had been searchign things like tuff sheds but man are those things expensive esp for a good sized one.... then i started to just look for plans online.... i have found 2 i like.. 1 is around 300sqft but will require a cement base (which will also require permits which i dont want to do) the second is smaller (16x10) and will not require a slab so im thinking of leaning towards this one....

here is the link for the smaller one: * KYLE SHED PLANS DETAILS

and then the big one: ROCKY MOUNTAIN SHED PLANS DETAILS

i already bought the plans for the smaller one but i still keep looking at the big one....only reason i dont want the big one is because if i need to get inspections its going to raise the value of the house since it will be permitted which will raise my property taxes

im feeling that the smaller one will be to small for my office/packaging section

where the bigger one is big enough for my office and most of my tools too... if not ill have to build another shed just for my tools.... im very confused so would like your guys inputs on what you would go with... obviously the bigger one will cost more to build... according to the plans i can build the smaller one with around 2k and the bigger one will be in the 6k+ range

this is my first shed/office so im a newbie to this...

-Raul

thanks bud... yah it is a tuffy.... im drawing up some floor plans right now to see how i would section it out for the small one... it will be big enough to fit my office in their and a few shelves for boxes and my packaging material and maybe a couch and a flat screen... so its not too small.. plus i was thinking of altering the plans and making it a 12x16 or 14x16...

now i know for a fact i wont have to permit the small one but the big one since ill have to poor a slab im almost sure i would have to get permits...i don't have neighbors behind me but the worst part is that my neighbor in front of me is a city inspector lol.... if not i would just do it without permits lol...

i do plan to build a big 30x60 home shop all the way in the back sometime next year so i dont really need the larger one since ill have somewhere to put my tools later...... im very confused lol.....

I've been building sheds for 12yrs, out here in PA its a huge market, I would recommend a nail gun if you don't have one. A shed is real easy to make, literally I've made 2 a day at times. We regularly deliver sheds 90% of the trucks hauling them at PSD's. The most important thing is make sure the floor is perfects sq. and level. Congrats on a new house.

IMHO, if you build the smaller shed, you will wish you had the larger. NEVER can have to much Man Room.
