If prefer to use your own wood to build a custom shed, then 2x4 Basics is the brand you have been searching for. With a 2x4 Basics shed kit, you are supplied with all of the connectors you need to build a shed, but you supply the wood. Simply select which type of shed—peak roof or barn roof—and it’s size. Choose from a pre-designated size, or combine multiple connector kits to build a shed as large as you need.

The connectors found in a 2x4 Basics shed kit are not your ordinary connectors. They are made out of heavy-duty, 24-gauge galvanized steel, and they can make building a shed simpler.

One of the biggest benefits of using a 2x4 Basics shed kit to craft your shed is that no expert carpentry skills are required. While you do provide your own wood, only straight, 90-degree angle cuts are necessary when you use 2x4 Basics connecting brackets. Say goodbye to complex measurements, angle cuts, and miter saws!

Whether you purchase one shed kit, or you want to combine two or three, your DIY shed kit arrives with comprehensive instructions. 2x4 Basics includes detailed explanations for each step, complete with pictures to make it easier. You will also be provided with a materials list and a cut list so that even if you are a DIY beginner you can build a shed that looks like it was crafted by a professional.

When you combine the strong steel connectors provided by 2x4 Basics with sturdy wood, your shed will withstand the elements for many years. And since you get to choose your own flooring, roofing, and siding materials, you decide what the finished look and durability will be, making sure it fits within your specific budget and style.

The 2x4 Basics brand is just one aspect of Hopkins, an innovative market leader in various industries. As part of the Hopkins brand, you can count on the quality and dependability of the 2x4 Basics products.
