Frequently Asked Questions

You can pick up your Do It Yourself Shed Kit at our workshop in Dundas for no delivery cost if you have an open utility trailer that is at least 8 ft. wide.

If needed, U-Haul offers trailer rentals for fairly reasonable rates if you don’t have a trailer or one large enough. Please follow this link for all the details for renting a U-Haul trailer here:

For U-Haul trailers based upon their unique design the 6’x12’ Utility Trailer is recommended. You will also need 4 to 6 cargo straps to secure the load.

If you opt to pickup the DIY Shed Kit yourself you can pick it up on your scheduled date at our workshop located at 3-62 Head St, Dundas, ON, L9H 3H7.

The path to where you’d like your shed built must be around 2 ft. wide with 9 ft. vertical clearance since we carry the fully prebuilt individual walls vertically from our parked truck to where the shed is to be built.



If your path is less than 2 feet wide please email us a few photos of the area so we can verify your pathway will work.

You do not need to be home for the installation. Before your installation date we will be sending you a form that will allow you to attach photos of the yard access and the install site. It will also ask a variety of questions about the installation including window and accessory locations. It will also have you stake out the location of the shed and explain everything about the installation. All of this information is forwarded to our installers so they can do the entire installation with nobody home.

Your grass does not need to be removed but must be cut down before our arrival. If applicable, all plants, trees and vegetation should be cut to ground level as well.


Any underground sprinkler systems and any electrical wiring must be removed from underneath where the shed is being built before the installation.


If you have more than an 8” slope where you’d like the shed built or if you have any concerns at all with the path to where your shed is being installed or with the area it is being built please email us a few photos. We can provide a visual assessment from these photos for no cost.

Upon ordering your shed we require a 50% deposit. We accept: online payments, cash or cheque.


For email money transfers we accept from all Canadian banks to our email address:; simply use your 8 digit account number located at the top right of your quote for the security question and answer.


For online bank bill payments we accept from: TD, Scotiabank or RBC; simply add, “Shed In A Day” as the payee and use your 8 digit account number located at the top right of your quote.


For cheque payments please make the cheque out to “Shed In A Day”.


We can accept credit card payments from: Visa, Amex or Mastercard online through PayPal. Please be advised that using credit card will add a 3% PayPal fee on top of the total cost.


The final payment can be paid on your installation or delivery date the same way as your deposit online or in person to the installers via cash or cheque.

We can install our sheds on a pre-existing concrete pad; we do not pour concrete pads.


You can have a concrete pad poured by a local contractor or use a pre-existing concrete pad if it is verified to be level and squared. With this option the concrete becomes the interior floor of the shed rather than our standard wooden floor.


You can verify the pad is level using a bubble level tool and is square by measuring diagonally from corner to corner. Please feel free to contact us if you require assistance with this.

We offer island via barge installations if there is an appropriate barge. One way barge ride:


  • 20 minutes or less for $400
  • 21 minutes to 45 minutes for $500
  • 46 minutes to 1 hour for $600

We do not offer island installs if the one way barge ride is over 1 hour long.


We will require you to email us photos of:


  • where you’d like the shed constructed
  • the barge
  • the island landing
  • the pathway from the landing to where the shed is to be built

The customer is responsible for organizing the barge and for the cost of the barge. We generally arrive for barge island installs around 7AM-8AM.

All of our sheds include a three year structural warranty. This warranty covers all of the structural components of the shed such as: door(s), hinges, general framing and construction of the shed.

All four exterior shed walls must be painted with an exterior paint. You can paint the shed yourself or we provide a painting service if needed for an additional cost.


We offer a complete 4 wall exterior painting service for convenience or simply a 1 to 3 wall exterior painting service for any hidden walls that you may not be able to access once your shed is installed. Please note, all 4 exterior walls must be painted to ensure longevity of the shed.


We recommend painting using Benjamin Moore, “Aura” or Behr, “Marquee” exterior paint in satin enamel; both types of these paint include primer and paint all in one and work effectively with the exterior of all of our sheds.

For our wooden standard floors we build our shed foundations by digging holes, laying around 2 1/2″ to 3 1/2″ of crushed gravel inside the holes and use 8”x8” cinder blocks on top of the gravel in the hole.



We build up on top of the cinder blocks using 2″x6″ pressure treated floor joists with 24″ centered floor joists. The floor joists can be upgraded to 16″ or 12″ centered if needed for heavier interior storage loads. We also offer floor joist hangers and a 2″x8″ floor joist upgrade for the most extreme weight loads. For some locations we use 12”x12”x2” concrete pavers depending on the surface the shed is to be built upon.



Included standard with all of our installations is a professional levelling and squaring of the base foundation for you. If you build your own Do It Yourself Shed Kit it is critical to ensure the base is level and squared in order for the installation to work.



Once all of the holes have been dug, the excess dirt is used to fill around the cinder blocks to neatly cover the gravel. All of the additional unnecessary dirt is placed under the shed to eliminate any undesirable mess.



Our standard shed setup includes 5/8” OSB tongue and groove floor sheathing on top of the 2”x6″ pressure treated base frame. We also offer 5/8” or 3/4” pressure treated plywood floor sheathing as an upgradeable option depending on your needs and interior storage weight load.



If you have a pre-existing concrete pad poured we use an outer 2”x4” pressure treated base frame which is screwed down with Tapcon Concrete Anchors into the outer concrete pad so the interior floor is concrete.

Our shed walls are constructed with a premium engineered wood product called LP SmartSide Panel. It is designed for exterior use on buildings and has a reverse board and batten finish.



The paneling is factory primed with a rustic and cross sewn texture featuring a weathered grain appearance of cedar.

Our sheds are loaded and affected by several variables which ultimately determine what time in the day your shed will arrive on your scheduled shed installation date.


If your install is first for the day the installers should arrive around 7AM-8:30AM. If your install is second for the day depending on the traffic and other unpredictable travel variables, the installers should arrive around 10AM-1PM to begin the installation.


If you would like to know whether your install will be first or second for your scheduled date, you will need to email us at or call us at 905-592-2040 in the afternoon of the business day before your installation.

If you’d like us to provide you with an idea of when your DIY Shed Kit will arrive on your scheduled date you will need to email us at or call us at 905-592-2040 in the afternoon of the business day before your delivery.


Your DIY kit will be unloaded neatly at the top of your driveway.

Depending on the slope of the grass/dirt area you’d like your shed built there may be a slight gap between the ground and the 2”x6” pressure treated base frame of the shed.



The flatter the area the closer we can get your shed to the ground. The steeper the slope (up to around 8″) the more of a gap there will be where the ground slopes downwards.



If needed, we offer a fence lattice skirt construction upgrade which covers any gap between the base frame and ground.
