One of the easiest ways to roof a shed or small structure is to use corrugated roofing sheets. At 4′ x 6’7″, it’s easier to cover a larger area in just a few minutes. You can use metal or asphalt based corrugated sheets. (I used asphalt sheets from Lowe’s for my shed. For more specific and detailed installation guidelines, check with the manufacturer of your roofing sheet.)
Having a kit put together by a professional has the lowest labor costs. If a carpenter or builder constructs a new custom shed from plans, your labor costs will be considerably higher. .
Storage barns are perfect for small items that need a home. Items from rakes to shovels to even bicycles would fit perfectly with the short sidewalls.
Do NOT purchase anything from Recreation Unlimited these crooks! I worked with Linzi Jones and Alicia Schilke (The GM) and they are incompetent liars. I purchased a play set and playhouse for over $12,000, I ordered the same thing that was on the floor and what came was totally the wrong set. I ordered the 6 foot version and they sent me the 4 foot version. I have tried to get them to fix the situation and they are unwilling to accept fault. You would think for $12k they could fix their mistake. DO NOT buy from these snakes!!
Keeping your firewood off the ground will prevent moisture from soaking into the bottom row of wood.

All the same materials used for roofing on your home can be used on your shed as well. Many people like to clad their sheds in similar materials to their homes to give their property a more cohesive look. However, to save costs, choose a flat roof for your shed and clad it in less expensive materials. Below are some of the most common materials for roofing a shed and their average cost per square foot.
Having a roof over your shed will keep the rain and snow from ruining your supply of wood. Constant rain and snow could reduce the quality of the top layers of your wood stack. Just think, if you always grab firewood from the top layer and that layer is always getting rained on, then you're always grabbing wet wood! If you have ever tried to start a fire with wet wood you know it can be very frustrating and time consuming. A roof over the firewood is very convenient because it's permanent and unlike a tarp or cover, you never have to worry about taking it off and putting it back on. Have the roof overhang the woodpile on all sides to offer protection and prevent water from dripping on your firewood.
Firewood... I really, really, really like this. Now, if I can figure out where to put the fire tools on it, this would be PERFECT!
