As more and more homeowners are starting to take advantage of backyard sheds, there is one question that keeps coming up in every buyer’s mind. What is the right size shed for my property?

The size will differ if you want to take your shed to the next level and convert it into a sewing room, man cave, or more!

How Much Do 10×12 Sheds Cost?

We’ve looked through some of the most popular among them and on average, you can expect to spend anywhere from $3000 – $5000 for a basic 10×12 shed. If you want to further customize your shed with extra windows, doors, ramps, transom, and other add-ons, you should expect a steeper price.

Do I Need A Permit For A 10×12 Shed?

For many homeowners, a shed is a great way to create additional storage space without making major changes to their property. But before you start researching the best sheds and choosing the one you like, it’s important to find out if you need a permit for your shed. In general, most towns and cities require permits for any structure that is over a certain size or that is not considered “temporary.” 

In many cases, a 10×12 shed likely won’t require a permit. At most, your township might require you to efficiently contain the water run-off from your shed. To find out for sure, you’ll need to check with your local building department. They can provide you with the specific requirements for your area. If your township does require a permit, once you have it, you’ll be one step closer to adding your new shed!

Can I Save Money With A 10×12 Shed?

Most people go into buying a shed with the thought of cleaning up the clutter in their home or creating extra space in their backyard for a hobby. But what many people don’t realize is that a shed can also save you money in so many little ways. For example, if you have an extra freezer in your shed, you can buy food in bulk when it’s on sale and then store it for later. Or, if you choose to renovate your shed and turn it into a little backyard guest room, you can start renting it out to local travelers for extra cash flow.

In addition, a shed can also be a great place to grow your own plants or start a small garden. By taking advantage of the space and resources that a shed provides, you can be sure to save yourself time and money.
