Take the guesswork out of framing your shed
Do you need a storage shed frame kit to put up a shed? No, you can just use shed plans. But the framing kit does give confidence to those who haven’t got much DIY experience.
The frame kit takes out the need for any fancy angle cuts, by providing brackets which do that job. The brackets also stop the need to use any heavy equipment such as a nail gun.
The brackets come with an instruction and material list, so YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT TO BUY AND AT WHAT SIZES. Some hardware stores (home depot) will cut your lumber for you, so you may not even have to cut the lumber yourself!
The brackets are designed to be used with 2×2 lumber, which is relatively inexpensive. This saving can help offset the cost of the framing kit.
The beauty is that WHAT THE SHED LOOKS LIKE IS COMPLETELY UP TO YOU. If you have some left over siding you’re your house and you want your shed to match your house, then go for it. You can cover it in vinyl, wood, man-made composite, metal, plexiglass… the list goes on.
Another benefit is unlike a shed kit, you could easily make some adjustments to the shed if you wanted. Like adding a window or raising or lowering the height of the shed, which would be no problem. The company (E-Z Frames) also comments that they will send kits out for custom sizes, if you need it.
The doors are framed with the brackets, however they do require panels, hinges and a locking mechanism which will take some forethought. But on the upside, the way the truss is built, the shed also COMES WITH A SMALL LOFT IF YOU WISH TO USE IT.
If you want a customized shed and aren't confident in building one yourself then this frame kit is a good buy.
