Craft Shed

The Shed is Delivered Part 1

Well it’s been a very interesting past 2 days. I have learned a lot about what not to do and how some people don’t care about specifics of a job.

Mistake #1: the salesman did not send anyone to evaluate my land area before delivery even though I had mentioned this.

Mistake #2: they couldn’t put the shed with the porch facing out on the truck because it’s top heavy.

Mistake #3: The shed couldn’t be turned the way I wanted so tearing down the fence was for nothing, but now we have decided to build around the shed and extend the current fence, which will give the kids a bigger yard.

Mistake #4: I hope this is the last one! The delivery men didn’t finish leveling the building, and then it snowed on Friday so now I’m going to be hassling them to come fix it until they do. I’m ready for this to be over so I can be done with Tuff Shed, but I want it done right!

It snowed on Friday it looks so pretty.

Comment below if you have any horror stories of delivery or builders.

Until next time.

Craft Shed Update

Well nothing ever goes as planned these days. Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches. The Craft shed was supposed to be delivered Tuesday, but they called Monday and said that there was a mix up in schedule so they will be here on Thursday. Thank goodness it has not rained here in several days and the ground is dry and hard!

Some background research to do before buying a shed:

Find out if your county needs a building permit. (My building is over 12 feet high so they require it)

Measure your area in the yard and see what kind of leveling you will need.

Talk to your neighbor about the delivery and let them know that you will do your best to be respectful of their property.

Keep in mind that weather can effect your delivery time if other deliveries prior to yours get pushed back.

Building Permit requirements for my shed

The county inspection said that we need to be at least 5 feet from the neighbors property line. We fortunately still have the markers up from when we had our house surveyed a few years back.

I had to submit a drawing and how it will look on the blocks and how it will be anchored into the ground.

It cost me $95 for a residential building permit. The office took both cash and card, but it had to be exact cash so come prepared!

Prior to shed being delivered

I had my fence removed in the area I wanted it because I want the porch inside the yard. You don’t have to do that, but it is an option.

Remove any landscape or personal items that might be in the way.

Communicate with neighbors of the delivery.

After fence was removed

Stay tuned until the next post!
