How-To Guide: Design and Build Your Shed


Have you been thinking about putting a shed on your property but not sure where to start? We’ve compiled a shed buyers guide that outlines the steps to take in buying your shed with Ulrich.

Step 1: do your research

Begin by doing some research online into the type of shed you want. There are plenty of options on the type of shed you can choose. From a garden shed to a she shed, man cave, home office, poolhouse, or simple storage shed, the opportunities are endless. Here are some links with different shed ideas and inspiration with pictures.

Once you narrow down the type of shed you’re looking to build, you can look into the design and build. There are 10 different models of sheds to choose from that can be customized to your liking. These models are shown below.

step 2: design your shed

Our designers are experts in getting an idea of what your vision is and making that idea a reality. They have a shed configurator where they will design your shed for you and send you pictures throughout the process so you have a visual during the design. 

You can choose specifics on siding material, roofing, amount of doors, windows, paint colors, etc.

step 3: Build and install process

When your order is placed, you will be contacted by one of our project managers to schedule your shed delivery.

The Ulrich crew will build your shed and when it is finished, they will deliver it to your property, set it up and level it, and give you the keys and any final paperwork.

step 4: love it for life

After your shed is installed, you can enjoy using it to its full potential. We warranty our sheds anywhere between 10-20 years depending on your package and are happy to honor that warranty should you need it.

A goal of ours is to create raving fans by delivering the highest quality sheds to satisfied customers. Please consider writing us a review and include pictures of your new shed!
