Lightbulb Planning to build a backyard shed for my parents

Hey guys, My father was in government service and no he is leading his retirement life. So I and my brother decided to build a backyard shed for my dad and mom. So they can sit there in the evening and relax. It will be a great gift for them. So we just did an online search and saw that there are teams who fix these types of sheds. What is your suggestion? Please share your opinion

If the shed was to be mainly for storage and nothing more then building it will or might be slightly less than prebuilt. However, the tone of your post suggest you want a little more than just storage. Perhaps a shed with decorative windows and doors. Maybe a "porch" of sorts. Will it be visible from the front of the house? If so most likely prebuilt will be cheaper in the long run. You'll also need to consider the base or foundation. Is there a cement slab already there? If just grass or dirt you'll want to sink some piers to lay sleepers then the shed will be built on these.
