This depends on our backlog and weather delays, but we typically can build your shed in two to three weeks. If a building permit is required and you need our help pulling it, the permitting process may take up to four weeks in addition to the above-stated time frame of two to three weeks.

It depends on the size and any additional features, but a shed that is 10×12 or smaller can typically be built in 2-3 days on-site, while those up to 200 sf usually take up to 5 days. Including features such as painting or lap siding may extend the build time.

No, some people want to paint their sheds themselves or want to just leave them as is. The material we use will be a tan color for side walls and doors and all trim will be white. We do, however, offer custom painting for an additional fee.

Typically permits are required for any shed larger than 120 sq. ft. Even if a building permit is not required, many sheds are subject to regulations. Generally, these codes are related to sizes, heights, setbacks, easements, and so forth. It is the property owner’s responsibility to know the codes that apply to their property, but we can help you understand them and advise you on how to comply with them.

No, we cut most of the materials and pre-fabricate some of the features at our shop ahead of time to speed up the building process. Rest assured that we are building your shed from scratch.
