Question DetailsAsked on 8/27/2017

I'm looking to build a 16'x10' red brick shed on a concrete foundation.

Can anyone know of the potential costs? Thanks

Sitting down ? Probably $500-1000 for the slab, assuming you mean a full shed slab rather than strip footings just under the walls (which would not be a whole lot cheaper for this size). For the walls, likely at least $15/SF for assuming 6 foot high walls say $4700 for that at probably the bottom end - in many areas more like $20-30/SF for more like $6000-9000 range for the brick with solid construction. Drop down to wood frame with fake brick or ultra-thin slab brick veneer more like $10/SF so more like $3000-4000 range for that. Roof another $10/SF minimum so say (with minimum 1 foot overhang) about 216 SF so roughly $2000-3000 depending on roof slope, materials, etc. Door another $300 minimum with hardware.

So - bottom line - maybe $7000-14000 in brick - maybe around $5800-8000 with brick veneer over wood frame. This opposed to a normal wood frame economy shed at about $3000-5000 for that size (including the slab) or about $2500-3500 on wood footings or concrete block piers. Economy metal prefab building commonly in the range of $2000-3000 for that size including the slab, about double that for higher quality building.

Note these are ROUGH ballparks, and vary by local building practices - toward lower end of given range in low labor or common brick use areas for the brick walls for instance, toward cheaper end in the metal buildings in farm area and locales like Texas where a lot of metal sheds are used.

And of course, high wind or seismic loadings it has to be designed for would up the cost typically 10-20%, in those applicable areas.
