Quick temporary shelter — a shed when you need storage, a greenhouse for that last unexpected frost, or a portable outdoor workspace when the weather is getting nasty — can make the difference between ruin and success. With Finley’s Easy-Up structural resin joints you can quickly put together a structure with a peaked roof and lean-in sides for stability. And since the only lumber it requires is square-cut 2×2’s and 2×4’s, you don’t have to cut any odd angles or measure any miters.

To me this means that even the first time I use these, all I need is lumber, a circular saw, and fasteners/driver. If I keep the cut lumber, every other time I just need fasteners and a driver! Street pricing on the kit starts at about $33 without a cover, and at about $230 with a cover.

If you don’t need an enclosure, you might still check out the rest of Finley’s 2×4 Basics line — we’ve posted on their shelving and workbench kits, and they offer other fast solutions as well.

  1. They’re illegal in my town. Might want to check your city before buying one.

    All these tarp-based covers absolutely require a place that is sheltered from wind. Strong winds can reduce the cover to shreds within a single season by constant flapping and chafing against the frame.

    Benjamin, did you check the wording? Sometimes the law is loosely worded enough to get by with a “greenhouse” or something. Of course, you might just go with the kit for building an actual shed rather than the temporary cover. Unless that is the thing that is specifically prohibited…

    Brau, you could get heavy plastic sheeting instead, only one season, but cheaper.
