If for any reason installing a completed storage building into the backyard is not an option or if you are simply a handyman at heart and would like to try your own skills, then a Economy Shed Kit, Vinyl Sided Storage Shed Kit, Classic Amish Sheds Kit or a Premier Garden Storage Shed Kit might work perfectly for you.

Please Note: Since our non-standard shed need more buildings skills, we do not offer all of our shed options in our DIY Storage Shed Kits. If you are unsure if you have the skills needed to assemble a DIY storage shed kit, speak with a sales rep today!

Q&A on Building a Storage Shed Kit

1. How much time will it take to assemble the storage shed building kit?

Erecting the shed kit should take one to three days depending on your level of expertise.

2. What do I need to build a barn or shed kit on my site?
  1. A hammer (power tools work great)
  2. Three inch nails or screws
  3. One and three quarter inch nails or screws
  4. Tape measure
  5. Screw gun
  6. Hand saw or sawzall (for just a few cuts)
  7. Sledge hammer (optional)

  9. Small speed square
3. How many people are needed to assemble a Storage Shed Kit?
  • We recommend at least 2 and at times 3-4
  • This will depend on the size of the garden shed kit
4. What if I have problems assembling the prefab kit?

Normally we try to help our customers as much as possible, especially if it is a matter of helping to figure out where certain material goes on the building. Keep in mind, you are responsible for correctly constructing the shed if you purchase a kit, but we can offer direction. (Prior construction experience is recommended.) If there is any uncertainty about whether or not you will be able to assemble the storage shed, consider one of our build-on-site options and we will send a team to assemble the building for you.

5. Does Sheds Unlimited offer 2 Story Sheds and Garages as Kits?

Unfortunately, we do not currently offer our larger buildings as customer assembled kits due to complexity of the buildings. However, if you are looking for a two-story prefab garage kit, we recommend speaking to one of our office staff to find out the price for Sheds Unlimited to come to your location to build a two-story shed or garage on site.

Single story garages can be bought as kits, but depending on the size we may recommend having our Prefab Garage Team assemble it for you.

6. Why Choose a Prefab Kit from Sheds Unlimited over an 84 Lumber or Home Depot kit?

Sheds Unlimited is an Amish-Mennonite family owned company and builds each prefab kit to the highest standards. Each building is carefully constructed with quality building materials and will outlast almost any metal or plastic sheds.

7. How Much More is the Cost of a DIY Storage Shed Kit

DIY Storage Shed Kits are the same price as a regular shed. We simply partially assemble the shed kit and send it as a package for you to assemble. If you wish to have Sheds Unlimited assemble the shed kit for you there is an extra cost from 25% to 40% depending on the type of storage shed or prefab car garage you wish to purchase. The prefab cost is also added to any options on the building. In addition, there may be extra storage shed kit shipping charges depending on your location.

When to Choose a DIY Storage Shed Kit?

  • If your storage shed site is inaccessible
  • If you simply love working with your hands
  • Save hundreds of dollars by assembling DIY storage shed kits versus Sheds Unlimited doing it for you
  • To reduce storage shed delivery charges. If you live in Long Island, NY, you might save big on a DIY Storage Shed Kit

Please note that fully assembled buildings and storage shed kits are the same price. This is due to the fact that storage shed kits from Sheds Unlimited are typically assembled in the manufacturing facility. The walls are temporarily put together as though the building was to be delivered as a unit. This allows us to be sure that the parts are properly assembled and also allows us to paint the garden shed kit.

    Friendly staff, fast service, reasonable price and great product. I highly recommend!

    i bought my shed as a kit.I was not expecting the walls and floor to be fully constructed. I was expecting(and hoping) to put it all together myself. Fortunately my son was available to help me carry it all to my back yard and put the walls up, or I would have had a real problem. Also, there were a lot of trim boards of different lengths and colors with no instructions of where they go( I still have some left over afterwards with no clue what they are for). Other than that, the shed looks great and I love it

    We had an excellent experience with your company. From start to finish it was an easy and uncomplicated process. We ordered a 12x20 shed, it was built and arrived just as we ordered it. Ryan was our driver and he was awesome. The new shed needed to be placed against existing decking and Ryan placed it perfectly. We are 100% satisfied and would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone needing a new shed...garage...workshop. Great value and just a really easy company to deal with  during the entire process.

    Best price I could find by far. The shed dealer 10 minutes from my house was 1500 more for the same size. Shed was delivered on time and looks amazing.

    Phil loch from Danbury Connecticut

    We purchased a 12x20 shed right before Christmas. They promised delivery before Christmas and it happened. The shed had to be built because of restricted access to the backyard. The guys arrived on Wednesday morning and were done that day by 1 PM. We were very impressed and would buy again from such a professional group of people. What a great experience from start to finish. We couldn't find a better deal in our area.

    John G. from Richmond,VA

    The entire process was fantastic! From designing the structure to delivery, everyone was incredibly helpful and professional. I'm thrilled with the quality of the building and look forward to using it as my studio for years to come.

    Michelle from Elkins Park, PA

    We had a great experience all around.
    Excellent communication and customer
    service. The men who came to our home
    and built the shed, were friendly and
    efficient. Just two of them had the shed
    put together in one afternoon.
    Thanks so much.

    From the beginning of the process through the completion of the building I have been consistently pleased and thrilled with the positive attitude and high level of integrity of everyone I have dealt with at Sheds Unlimited. The designer and project managers were patient, thorough and competent. This was a four car garage with space for an apartment upstairs, multiple dormers being built on a stepped foundation. The building was put up in 3.5 days. I was told all along that it would take 3-4 days and I simply did not believe that it could happen that quickly. It did. The three young men who did the actual construction were extremely professional and a delight to have with us for that week. I am completely satisfied with my new garage. It's a dream come true!!

    Phil from Washington CT

    The shed is very good and what I expected. The standard window are alittle small. It was damaged in shipping and waiting to hear back from company but overall shed is nice.

    Thank you very much for delivery of the first of three sheds today.

    The shed is oustnading; even better than the excelelnt product we anticpated !

    The whole experience has been outstanding:

    - your service in helping us design exactly what we needed, over many minor changes on our part, was truly superb: Professional, patient, presistent, and precise.

    - the delivery person who brought the shed and installed it was truly outstanding: Focusd , courteous, skilled, and careful (RARE combination these days!) we would welcome this same installation person tomorrow as well as he was VERY careful and considerate of the property, trees, plants, etc...even carefully navigating around bushes inches from the shed site.

    - the final product is excellent. high quality, visually beatiful and really a complement to our house.

    We look forward to receiving the remaining two sheds tomorrow.

    Please feel free to post these comments anywhere you would like.
