How to Assemble a Metal Shed

Barns, carports, and other small structures are often made of metal. Steel is the most popular and durable option. Storage sheds are usually made of lighter material, like aluminum. Storage shed kits are available at many stores and following are basic instructions on how to assemble one.

  • Get permission. Most buildings, like barns and carports, require permission from a building inspector. Some portable structures may be exempt from these laws, but remember that if your shed is made of steel it will be difficult to relocate.
  • Pick a spot. The location of your shed is important. The spot should be convenient, level, and well drained.
  • Start with the foundation. Concrete and plywood are both suitable for the floor of a shed. Plywood is weaker, though, and likely to decay with extended use.
  • Get organized. Once you have your permit, your location, and your foundation, it is time to begin sorting through all your building supplies. You will want to have tools like a drill, pliers, and a ladder. Fortunately, most metal shed kits already have the holes drilled.
  • Start with the frame. The main supporting pieces of your building should be erected first. This is done by lining up the holes in the frame and attaching the pieces with bolts.
  • Assemble the body. Line up your metal sheets before you begin bolting. This will assure that the pieces fit together snugly.
  • Move up to the roof. Like with the body, roof parts should be lain down before they are permanently attached. You may need assistance with the roof depending on its angle.
  • Finish the job. The last part to assemble is the door. There is usually a track that the door will need to be placed on. Do not forget to install handles and a lock.
