As you complete the final steps of the home selling process, it is important to cancel various everyday house services prior to moving day. In fact, some of the essential services that you may need to cancel include:

1. Electric

Notify your electric company about your plans to move. You also can tell the company how much longer you will be staying in your house and provide it with a forwarding address for your final invoice.

Ultimately, you should provide your electric company with at least a few weeks' notice about your plans to relocate. This will ensure that you and the electric company can work together to settle your final bill.

2. Cable and Internet

If you like your current cable and internet services provider, you may be able to transfer your current services to your new location. And if you call your cable and internet services provider and speak with a customer service agent, you can find out exactly how to do that.

Of course, there may be instances where you need to cancel your cable and internet services. If you are moving to a city or town where your current cable and internet services provider is unavailable, for example, you may need to cancel your services.

3. Water

Contact your local water company and give it the news about your moving plans. This will ensure that you won't be billed for any water services after your moving date.

Don't wait until the last minute to notify your water services provider about your move, either. Remember, the sooner you inform your water services provider about your moving plans, the sooner you can guarantee that any water services in your name will be discontinued once you relocate from your current address.

As the day of your home closing approaches, it helps to plan ahead as much as possible. If you collaborate with a real estate agent throughout the property selling journey, you can get the help you need to overcome any potential house selling hurdles.

He or she next will craft a custom property selling strategy, one that ensures you can quickly sell your residence and maximize its value. Then, a real estate agent will list your residence, promote it to prospective buyers and set up house showings and open house events. And once you receive an accept an offer to purchase your residence, a real estate agent will make it easy for you to finalize your home sale.

When it comes to selling a house, it often helps to hire a real estate agent. By employing a real estate agent, you can receive in-depth insights at each stage of the house selling journey. And as a result, you can quickly and effortlessly accomplish your desired home selling results.

Building a storage shed for wood can be advantageous for several reasons: it allows you to store your firewood properly.  When firewood is dry, your fire will be warmer, smoke far less, and you'll burn less wood at a time -- and a shed with good airflow that is slightly elevated will ensure your firewood stays dry.  Not to mention that a storage shed will ensure your woodpile is neat and tidy!

This set of instructions will produce a woodshed capable of holding about one cord of wood.

Materials

Lumber

  • Three 4" x 4" x 12' 
  • Two 2" x 6" x 8'
  • Eight 2" x 4" x 8'
  • Thirteen 1" x 4" x 8'
  • One 4' x 8' x 19/32" plywood (OSB or CDX; see notes below) 
  • Hardware

  • Twelve 1/4" x 5" hex lag screws
  • One, 1-lb. box of 1 1/2" T25 deck screws
  • One, 1-lb box of 3" T25 deck screws
  • Other

  • One 5-Gal. bucket of rubber roof
  • Six 12" x 8" x 12" deck blocks
  • Directions

    If you have the opportunity to get your wood cut at the hardware store, this is a great time-saver.  If not, start by measuring out and cutting your wood down to what is described in the sections below.

    Make the floor frame

  • The 2" x 6" by 8' lumber will form the front and back of your woodshed; the 2" x 4" x 45" will form the sides.  Attach these together with the 3" deck screws, using two screws at each join.
  • Next, take five pieces of 2" x 4" x 4' lumber and place these equidistant atop the frame to make the joists.  Be sure to line up your first and last joists so that they are flush with the front and back of the frame.  Fix these in place using two, 3" deck screws on both sides of every joist, for a total of 20 deck screws on the five joists.  Set the remaining three joists aside.
  • Set the floor frame up off the ground either using the deck blocks or two pieces of lumber.  This will ensure you can attach your 4 x 4 posts extending slightly below your frame.
  • The posts at the back of your shed should measure 4' x 4' x 5' 6", and your front-facing posts should measure 4' x 4' x 6'.  There should be six posts total, three for each side.  Attach your posts to the inside corners of your frame and one additional post at the midpoint of your two longest sides.  Use 3" screws to hold your posts in place while you work on the rest of the shed.  Be sure that your posts extend 3 1/2" below your frame.
  • Add your remaining joists snug around your posts, such that there is a joist on either side.  Secure with 3" deck screws as you did in #2.
  • Fix your posts into place permanently into the 2" x 6" x 8' floor frame using 1/4" x 5" lag screws, two facing outward, two facing inward.  You should use four lag screws on each post.
  • Take your 1" x 4" x 8' lumber and orient it at right angles to your joists.  Fix in place using two, 1 1/2" deck screws at each end of every floor joist wherever they touch.
  • Make the walls

  • Use 1" x 4" x 89" lumber to form the back slats of the storage shed.  Attach these equidistant along the outside of the back wall using two, 1 1/2" deck screws wherever the slats touch the frame.
  • Use 1" x 4" x 45" lumber to form the side slats of the storage shed.  Attach as you did the back slats in #1.
  • Set your frame on the deck blocks, concrete blocks or stones you have set aside for this purpose and adjust the shed to sit in its final, desired position.
  • Make the roof

  • Attach 2" x 4" x 4' lumber to both sides of the tops of your posts using two, 3" deck screws everywhere your lumber touches a post.  Your rafters should slant at approximately a 25-degree angle when you align your lumber with your taller and shorter posts.
  • Place the 4' x 8' x 1/2" plywood atop the roof joists.  Secure with 1 1/2" deck screws every half-foot everywhere your roof touches a rafter.  Note: CDX plywood may produce a longer-lasting roof that is less likely to bow, while OSB is fine for flooring. 
  • Apply rubber roof, following the manufacturer's instructions closely.  If desired, add roofing material to extend the life of your woodshed.

  • This entire woodshed costs less than $250 to build and will take one afternoon's work for two people, whereas a pre-made woodshed can cost $1,000 or more.  If you can use leftovers from other projects, it can cost even less!  Ensure yourself a cozy winter with this one-weekend DIY.
