All do it yourself shed kits come with complete assembly instructions. If your shed is being installed we will do all of the work for you and you will not require any assembly instructions.

The shed needs to be painted. The side panels of the shed are Smart Panel, which comes factory primed and the rest of the wood and trim is unfinished spruce wood, which needs to be primed and painted. We recommend using Behr or Benjamin Moore Premium Outdoor Latex with Primer Paint, since this covers the shed effectively with only one or two coats and ensures a flattering finish. We do offer shed painting as an option with shed installations for an extra cost.

Upon ordering your shed we require a 50% deposit. We accept: cash, cheque and online bank payment via TD Bank, Scotia Bank, or Royal Bank. For online bank payment simply add “Shed In A Day” as the payee and use your account number located at the top right of your quote. If you do not deal with any of those banks, we also accept email money transfers; simply use your account number for the secret question. Also, we accept Visa and MasterCard through PayPal, which has a 3% surcharge on the amount paid through PayPal. If mailing a cheque make it out to “Shed In A Day” and if your delivery/install is within 10 days we recommend mailing your cheque with Canada Post’s Express Post; available at most Shoppers Drug Mart locations.

In the photos above you will see the 8”x8” cinder blocks we use and also how we provide our 2”x6” pressure treated floor joists. We use these cinder blocks as well as around 2 ½” to 3 ½” inches of crushed gravel to construct the base. Some locations we will use 12”x12”x2” concrete pavers depending on where the shed is built.

Above you will see how we construct the base of the shed by digging holes, filling the holes with gravel, using cinder blocks on top of the gravel and lastly the pressure treated 2”x6” base frame sitting on top of the blocks. Simply adjust the amount of crushed stone until each base board sits level across the cinder blocks. Included in all of our installations is a professional leveling and squaring of the base for you. If you build your own Do It Yourself Shed Kit it is imperative to ensure the base is level and squared in order for the shed build 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 and hold the blocks in their correct position. All of the additional unnecessary dirt is placed under the shed to eliminate any undesirable mess.

In the second last photo you will see our standard 5/8” OSB tongue and groove floor sheathing on top of the 2”x”6 pressure treated base frame. We also offer 5/8” or ¾” pressure treated plywood flooring.

Lastly, if you have a pre-existing concrete pad we use 2”x4” pressure treated base framing which is Tapcon screwed down into the concrete pad to create a concrete interior floor (as seen in the final photo).

All of our sheds include a three (3) year structural guarantee. The guarantee covers all of the structural components of the shed such as doors, hinges, and the general framing and construction of the shed. The warranty does not cover rot as this would happen as a result of not caulking or painting the structure correctly.

The siding of our sheds is an all wood manufactured product by Louisiana Products called Smart Panel. It is designed for use on exterior buildings and has a faux board and baton finish. It is one of the best wooden products in the outdoor accessory building industry. It comes treated with rot and termite protection and is factory pre-primed.

You will only need some simple tools to get the job done: a hammer, level, shovel, a drill with a red Robertson bit, a saw, and a measuring tape.
