If you are planning to build a portable shed, here are a few points you should consider before you make your first cut.
Since you are looking for a portable shed, keep the size small so that it will be easy to move. Figure out how much you plan on storing and adjust the size accordingly.
You can go for traditional materials like metal or wood, or even try plastic, which will be light and easy to push around.
There are various ready-cut sheds available in different shapes and sizes. Each comes with detailed instructions for assembly.
Start with the posts. Cut three logs at six feet and another three at eight feet. Ensure that the ends of all the logs are completely flat.
For the front portion of the shed, take a 12-foot log and fix an eight-foot log vertically to it with galvanized pipe strapping of the same size. Use nails to fix these up. While fixing the frames, keep them on the ground. Turn it over when you are connecting the opposite side.
For the back portion, take a six-foot log and fix it to a 12-foot log as you did for the front piece.
Arrange six flat rocks on the ground of the site where you want your shed to be. Space the stones about five feet apart.
Lay asphalt shingle over the flat rocks.
Position your frames vertically on the flat rocks.
Fix the beams properly on the flat rocks, making use of the wooden planks and nails.
Now work on the top. Fix the 2x4s on the top corners with nails.
Make a roof using 2x4s, from one end of the beam to another. Affix these with nails.
Affix plywood over the roof by cutting the ply as per the roof measurement. Use asphalt rolling on the top.
If you wish, add shelves inside your new shed. Ensure that the structure is well-ventilated to prevent moisture damage to anything you store inside. Since it is made of wood, your shed can withstand climatic changes and bad weather.
