Prefabricated or Pre-Cut

Our pre-cut sheds and pre-assembled sheds come with pretty much everything you'll need - including all wood, nails, hardware, assembled windows and doors. Each shed part carefully cut to exacting standards. Our shed kits even come with a step-by-step shed assembly video as well as a comprehensive instruction manual on how your shed goes together. Summerwood garden sheds also include delivery right to your door (Continental US only).

What's Not Included

Labor. Plan on anywhere from a couple of days, to as many as several days to assemble your shed. Of course, much depends on your personal handiness, and the size and complexity of your shed. You'll receive a comprehensive estimate on labor hours with our shed quote.

Roofing Shingles. Unless you purchase cedar shingles as an option for your shed kit, you'll need to make arrangements to purchase shingles from a local building supply centre. We supply the information on how many you'll need for your specific shed.

Tools. A comprehensive tool list required to build your shed is available right here.

Shed Foundation. We can help you figure this out too, here.

Finishes for your shed. Unless you purchase the Canexel shed siding option, you'll need to purchase any paints, stains you want to finish off your beautiful shed. Color and appearance are personal, so we leave that to you. However, here are some shed finishing ideas to get you excited.

Still Need a Handy Helper?

What if you don't have the time or you're just not a do-it-yourselfer? Shed kits from Summerwood are still an unbeatable value. We can recommend a contractor to build your shed kit in your own back yard. Our hiring a contractor package is simple to use. A quick look at your shed kits detailed labor estimate and they'll be able to quote a price for you almost instantly. We've made it easy.

Top Quality Western Red Cedar

At Summerwood we don't skimp on materials for your shed. Our sheds are constructed from rich, premium grade western red cedar. However we also offer a convenient and attractive maintenance free shed siding in a variety of colors. To prevent rusting, all shed hardware is non-corrosive and we use durable stainless steel nails on our pre-assembled siding. Premium materials make for a long-lasting garden shed, and enjoyment for years to come. Learn more.


Preparing Your Sheds Site

When choosing a location for your new shed, try to keep the shed fairly close to where it will be used most often. Resist the urge to stick it in a remote corner of the yard just to "keep it out of the way". Besides, you'll likely want to show it off a little. Read some other useful tips and ideas on choosing a great location for your new shed. 

You'll also need to decide on your sheds foundation. Consider the layout of your property and how you'll use your shed, is it a storage shed, a tool shed, or a garden shed? Patio stones provide an effective and economical foundation, however there are other options that will last longer and provide a better base depending on your requirements and budget. Learn more about shed foundations.


Building Permits

In most jurisdictions, shed building permits are not required for sheds under 100 - 110 sq. ft. You should check with your local permit office for the regulations and specifications for sheds in your area. We've compiled a list of what Government office to contact depending on where you live.
