100 – Part 2 – DIY SHED Building Series – Walls and Siding

My Custom Detailed Plans for most common shed sizes: https://kingsfinewoodworking.com/collections/project-plans-for-sale/products/shed-building-plans
Includes complete materials list and cut list, with all angles and math done for you! Plus these designs maximize material use, giving you the most amount of shed for the least amount of money.

This is a complete video series detailing exactly how to build a shed from beginning to end. It is presented so that even someone with little to no experience can tackle this project. The instruction teaches the IBC (International Building Code) rules that almost every jurisdiction in the United States follows, so you will be prepared if you need a permit. But in many cases a permit isn’t required for a shed under a certain size.

This project takes only basic tools to accomplish. If you have a circular saw, a drill, a level & a hammer, along with some basic hand tools, you can do this.

There are things that will make it quicker of course, such as a nailgun & compressor. But you can decide what level of tools are needed.

I’ve broken the video into digestible parts. This makes it easier to refer back to a specific section. Or, if you only happen to need instruction in one area, this will save you time, since you can just watch what you need.

Here are some of the tools and supplies that I used in building this project:

  1. Nice shed. Nice to see your girls doing a great job in putting this together.
    As a retired custom home builder and remodeler I have a few observations that I would like to comment/critique on so that others viewing this great shed build will be able to go with my suggestions as well.
    Firstly, when squaring up a wall, it's best to snap a chalk line for the bottom plate to be tack nailed to the deck to make sure it stays straight and so that when you should need to make any adjustment, the wall will stay in position and once you get it square you should then tack the top plate to the deck so it stays put when attaching your sheathing/ siding. Also it would be a good idea to, even though this is just a shed, it's a good practice to ad an additional stud and blocking between the end stud and that additional stud which will create backing and additional corner nailing when adjoining the the two walls together. Also your top plates could have been put in place when building the walls on the deck keeping the plate on either wall 3 – 1/2 " back so that the adjoining wall top plate ( which would hang beyond the end of the wall 3-1/2" ) would then lay in that space to tie both walls together. Then @ the 14:00 miniute mark you refer to "leveling up the wall", that would be plumbing the wall. Horizontal is level and vertical is plumb.😁
    The header studs I recommend attaching with the header standing up before nailing it into place, that way you can get the short studs toe nailed on both edges and also on the face of the stud. Just makes a more secure attachment. Also the trimmer/jack stud should be nailed through and into the king stud and make sure the jack studs aren't short in length should be a very snug fit.😀 sorry for the long critique, just makes for a great build better. 😁 I'll probably be adding my 2 cents to the rest of your build going forward. So hopefully others won't get bent out of shape with my suggestions. It's just that I've done this for 30 plus years. And I think I know a thing or two. LOL Have a great day.

  2. New to the channel…
    Worst part of this series is waiting for next episode! Have you published a build on a patio cover? (freestanding or tied-in)

  3. HI James! I really enjoy your videos. In this particular set of videos I appreciate the explanation of the workflow. It makes all the difference in the world if you have a well thought out plan of the order of operation. Otherwise you can run yourself ragged retracing your steps or having to move things around. Excellent workmanship and commentary!

  4. James, another outstanding video. The information is very well detailed. People who have no idea on what it takes to build regardless of what it is. Information that you provide is right on. This set of videos if filled with information that is taken for granted and they have no idea where it comes from. Pleas keep up the quality of information you have been providing. Thank you

  5. You may have mentioned it already (sorry if I missed it) but how much did the shed cost in materials? Having an all-in cost figure would be very helpful. Great video series!

  6. Another awesome video King family! Keep up the great work. It looked like you had weather like we do here in Indiana. Warm and sunny one minute and grab the winter coat the next.

  7. Fantastic. My grandfather was a master carpenter and made numerous sheds. If you do a barn style roof, the sides don’t have to be so tall and you still get the clearance inside. Love watching your entire family involved in your projects. Many Blessings to your family.

  8. This series came at perfect timing, I’m planing to make my self a shed shop around the beginning of the year with my Christmas bonus 😁 thank you for the grate detailed videos and comprehensive plans
