The word ‘shed’ comes from ‘shade’. The purpose of a shed is to provide protection and shelter, either temporary or permanent. Sheds are the most versatile types of structures. Usually built for storing things, sheds can be built from any material and can be erected quickly.
Earlier, people used to build own sheds, for example, farm sheds and barns. But that was a time when building materials were limited to thatch (dried straw, reed etc for making a roof) and timber (for making walls, etc). Those kinds of sheds didn’t last very long and had to be repaired often.
Today, you can find ready made sheds for sale made from a variety of materials, including wood, steel, plastics, glass, fibre, etc. If the purpose of sheds in early times was limited to keeping farm produce, implements, cattle and occasional living, today’s sheds are made to order for a variety of purpose. Indeed, today’s kit houses are self-contained alternative dwelling places with all modern amenities.
