Building a pre-cut wood shed – What to expect – Home Depot’s Princeton

Building a pre-cut wood shed  – What to expect – Home Depot’s Princeton

Here’s a few similar sheds on Amazon:
Everton 8×12 Shed with solid 2×4 Framing:
Handy Home Products Cumberland Shed 10×8:
Handy Home Products Cumberland Shed 10×12:

Framing Nailer→
Air Compressor→
Hammer Stapler→
My drill, I love it→

I included a link to the full construction plans for this exact shed. This is made by “Handy Home Products“ and is sold at Home Depot. The model is called the “Princeton” Once it was completed I would say I found no real issues with it. But only time will tell on how it holds up. Handy Home Products also makes the Cumberland model 10×12. It’s nearly identical. You can see that one on amazon.

Excellent video. I found these kits from Home Depot to be nothing but junk. I built my own 10x stronger for the same price or slightly more.

kathryn liu says:

Looks like I'm buying a home cheapo resin shed…sure glad I watched this, thank you

sonoftakeshi san says:

price was way over the materials used

bill sheehan says:

those are very poor quality sheds. A better kit is from 84 Lumber 2×4 construction gable roof design 2' spaced pre-built truss' and can add a few for 16" centers or to add on for longer length. includes floor and shingles and fasteners. Yes I did work for them and sold them so I do know how they were built. only treated 2×4 on bottom so need slab or 4×4's for setting on.

Nice video 👍

Thomas Martinez says:

please realize it'd just a shed not a small house! there is no need to spend extra money in more materials than what is needed if you know what you are doing

How do you know how many shingles you need?

Tammy B. Jones says:

this was so awesome

S Robin says:

Friends that work are hard to find,  hard to find a paid worker to help in scarce populated area. Most workers are being kept by welfare checks or fake 'disabilities' check

Skyler Parker says:

This is definitely the best woodworking book I`ve ever read, “pepe amazing plan” (Google it). The book consists of eye-catching images and drawings and reader-friendly text. This is a “must have” woodworking book mainly because everything you should know about woodworking is found here and it really guides you throughout the topic well.

Thanks for the excellent video on the Home Depot Princeton! I just built one and frequently referred to your video. I beefed up around the doors and the back wall and did a plywood floor. The shed isn't as quite as sturdy as one built with 2x4s 16" on center but should be more than adequate for garden tools etc.. Just got the shingles on and it looks great. After generous.caulking and paint I expect it to last many years. PS. Don't be discouraged by all the haters.

There are several components to doing a pro job. One resource I discovered that succeeds in merging these is the Adota blueprint pack (check it out on google) without a doubt the most incredible course that I've seen. Check out this unbelievable resource.

I lost interest when I saw all that strand board.

Noe Alvarez says:

excellent video thanks

Cathy Jarolin says:

Liked this video… Awesome shed that People without construction knowledge can do it themselves and save lots of time and money. Great Job!! :0)~~~~

John Mcbastard says:

looks pretty good to me

Maximaniac72 says:

I was chuckling the whole way through until I got to the part where he said the whole kit was done with 2×3's. It was full on laughter from then on. What a POS!

Madden Master says:

my sister was going to buy a small one..I said I could built it cheaper..NO I was wrong it ended up cost me more..and that was me doing all labor free My material cost was more we should of purchase a tuff shed ..they must get their material whole sale?

tempesttube says:

Thanks for the informative video! I wasn't thrilled with the initial appearance of those sheds and looking at how terribly designed they are, I'm definitely going to look into other options. Regarding the roofing, there should be a proper lining under the singles. The first row shouldn't be reversed. You should cut the tabs away. That's so that the tar line is now at the bottom, which secures the first visible row and keeps the shingles from blowing away. The ridge cap should be done by cutting at the tab lines so you'd have the entire shingle cut into thirds. That allows you to treat it like the rest of the roof by nailing on the tar line and overlapping, which adheres one piece to the next and protects the nail head area. It also means better spacing so less nailing. Also, just go end to end.

Cheers for the Video! Excuse me for chiming in, I would love your thoughts. Have you tried – Mahorrla Wooden Paradise Method (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is an awesome exclusive guide for building better sheds and woodworking without the headache. Ive heard some super things about it and my mate got excellent success with it.

تقنية بلا حدود says:

Nice video content! Excuse me for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you researched – Mahorrla Wooden Paradise Method (search on google)? It is a good one of a kind product for building better sheds and woodworking minus the normal expense. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my work colleague at very last got astronomical results with it.

Thank you for sharing this video

alextheromanian says:

i think i may purchase a plastic one…especially i can find a company that makes them out of recycled plastic. seems like a lot less hassle than the wood ones…and i actually have experience in lumber and carpentry and own all the tools id need for this job. that being said…nice job on this one, you are right, a vent and a skylight would have done wonders to that thing but costs sometimes dictate engineering.

I changed out the foundation 2×4''s for full length. that way there is no seam in middle.
I used screws instead of nails.
nailer and compressor can be rented from local home store or tool rental place.

Maxid1 says:

You lost me when you said it couldn't be done without a framing nailer.
