For the do-it-yourself handyman, the obvious material of choice is wood. Select a shed plan with standard 2 x 4 construction to allow for insulation in colder climates. You can purchase metal sheds and plastic sheds but they are very limited when the time comes for a modification, paint color, or repair.
Before you can decide which shed plans are best suited for your project you must first assess the function of your shed. Will it primarily be utilized as storage for tools? Will you require access for large equipment such as a lawnmower, bicycles, or a golf cart? Will the main use of the shed be a garden-shed, workshop, garage, or pool-house? Once you decide on the primary use of your shed you can move on to the shed plan selection process.
Adding onto the house was an option too, but MUCH more expensive. It'd require an extension to the roof, which isn't a big deal, but that part of the house would have sightly newer shingles than the rest of the house which would be just weird. There'd be the added square footage, which would be nice, but you also have to heat and cool that extra sq/footage, and also clean it. We would be able to add in things like "dream bathrooms" and large closets though if we wanted. One of the toughest things to stomach though was the disruption to our lives. Once we realized though that we'd have to live with our current master bedroom exposed to an unfinished portion of the rest of the home for a period of time, we decided against it. We decided that we'd do that last resort.
