Once you receive your new building begin by unpacking the pre-cut framing, doors and hardware. You will also receive a detailed manual with step by step instructions. Each step is explained with clear instructions and detailed line art and has been developed with the novice builder in mind.
Following the manual you will be directed to cut the siding material for application to the wall frames. This step is made extraordinarily easy because the pre-cut walls are used as a template, once assembled, prior to cutting. Simply trace the outline of the wall and cut. Shed Town Usa
