1. Design your shed online with the 3D Shed Configurator

Design a shed anytime, anywhere on the 3D Shed Configurator. Save your shed design by filling in your information and emailing yourself the link. Once you have saved your shed design, you can move on to step two. Your local builder will be available to guide you through the rest of the process if necessary.

2. Get your shed design approved by local authorities

Some sheds may need a building permit from your town or HOA. To determine your local regulations, simply give your local building department or HOA a call or print out your shed design and make a visit to your local building department office. If you need a building permit, you will need to fill out a permit application. If you have questions about the process simply connect with your builder and he will be glad to help.

3. Plan for site preparation

For a shed to remain structurally sound over a long period of time, it needs to have a solid, level foundation. For sheds up to 80 sq ft we recommend the blocking option found on the 3D Shed Configurator. For larger sheds you may need a stone pad or concrete slab installed, and for sites on a hill you may need a retaining wall. If you want a custom quote or site prep recommendations just  connect with your local builder.

4. Place your deposit

Once you have designed your shed and have worked out the details of site preparation, town regulations can easily place your deposit online from the 3D Shed Configurator. There are options to pay with a Debit card, Credit card, or ACH transfer. You can also meet your builder in person and pay with a check. For other payment options or for special financing, ask your builder for details.

5. Recieve your construction date

Once you have placed your deposit, your builder will be in touch to set a construction date that works for both of you. Now you can step back and watch your backyard structure being built Your relationship with the builder means you can ask for tweaks in the design even as the structure is being built.
