100 sq ft shed: Where We Begin
One of the things that people often forget when buying a shed is how to truly read the dimensions. A 100 sq ft shed is going to be shown in a few different ways. If you want the exact specs for the outer walls, a 10×10 shed is going to give you exactly 100 sq ft. However, a 10×12 shed will give you closer to 100 sq ft of space on the inside because of the thickness of the walls. We want you to know exactly what you are buying so that you can tailor your purchase to your needs!

But let’s get down to business. How much is this going to cost?
When we start thinking about the cost of a 100 sq ft shed, the first question we want to ask centers around prefab vs DIY. Prefab is anything that is already built, whereas DIY is all about doing it yourself. Both of these options have pros and cons, and the final decision will be different depending on the buyer (check out shed prices here).
A prefab 100 sq ft shed can cost anywhere from $2,000 and beyond depending on what you want to do with your new space. If you are looking for something well-built without a large number of bells and whistles, $3,000-$5,000 is a great starting point for your shed. The cost of prefab is seen not only in the quickness of use after delivery but also in the craftsmanship and quality control of each backyard shed.
If you like undergoing bigger home projects, this could be the project for you. You will want to consider the cost of time, supplies, and level of skill you have when attempting this project. This can be a great way to save money, but with the size and the ability to add on later, could also be more of a headache than some are ready for.
It is also important to remember that you are responsible for the foundation of the outdoor shed as well as making sure that you have the zoning ability to put a shed on your property. Find out what your local zoning board requires and allows!
