  • Question about expanding a shed

    Hey everyone, having recently acquired a rural property, I would like to add onto an existing shed that is already on the property. Keep in mind that I did not make the original shed, but it still looks sturdy to me. It is structurally sound is what I am trying to suggest.

    I want to add a freestanding structure as my new addition. I intend to use trim work to marry this new addition into the older existing shed. Considering that both roofs have a different height and pitch, I have been told that this is going to allow the overall design to be much stronger and much more more rigid.

    I would like to use my new shed (or improved shed, however you want to call it) as a storage space for some equipment and use it as a workshop. Is there anything that I need to know about that I might not be considering? I consider myself somewhat handy, but I am no carpenter, contractor, or house builder.

    If there are any factors that you think I should be paying specific attention to, please do not hesitate to let me know. Thank you for any suggestions or hints that you might be able to give.
