    Default What's cheapest DIY shed or kit build?

    Hi all,

    Has anyone worked out what's cheaper build a shed from scratch or buy a kit.
    I'm looking at 2.5m by 1.5m size. It's only for storage.

    Cheers
    Tony

    I have one of these for our storage shed, pretty hard to beat the price.

    They are lightly made but once screwed together are very strong.

    Thanks for the suggestions everybody.
    We've decided on a kit shed, https://www.tradetested.com.au/brows...-rivergum.html
    I think it'll save a lot of hassles getting the sheeting and framing etc.

    Cheers
    Happy renos'
