Sure as the sun rises and falls each day, you acquire more things than you know what to do with. This human trait can be problematic, but it does allow us the opportunity to commiserate with one another on the travails of collecting useless items as though they're gold. Here you'll find advice on how to push back that dreadful day when your spouse insists on taking inventory and hauling your superfluous treasures to a literal garbage pile. Everybody knows storage sheds are great for organizing your stuff, but don't forget, they might be the salvation of those treasures whose value only you can see.
Of course, you may be one of those rare humans who know when personal property has become a hindrance rather than an asset. If you can admit that you're never going to get around to reading those magazines or fixing up that bicycle, then a storage shed is an even better investment. Because it won't be loaded with things you never touch, you can use it to store things you need quick access to such as lawn equipment, larger tools, and your childhood golf clubs. Wait, no, get rid of those!
Some feel there isn't much difference between sheds apart from size. In the end, after all, they just accumulate stuff until no more will fit. But before you arrive at such a fatalistic conclusion regarding your sheds, consider which shed you really need. You might find that the right shed gives you what you need without the clutter.
Having decided you don't want some bland box made of plastic in your backyard, now you must decide on the architectural design of your storage shed. Since it will, in effect, be a large box made of something, the most prominent way to make it unique is with a stylish roof. For the lowdown on how folks are topping off their garden sheds, tool sheds and general storage sheds, read on.
You mustn't get it in your head that the shed is limited to rusty tools, languishing projects, and defunct bicycles. No, the shed is as useful for hoarders as it is for doers. Many design home offices in their sheds, or use them as a guest house, art studios, or for practicing music.
Fifty states and countless municipalities make it difficult to address all the concerns when it comes to building a storage shed on your property. One thing we know is that it's better to do beforehand than afterwards. City officials don't like to have their authority tread upon, so you'd best pay your tithe to the mayor and kindly discuss your plans with some guy who's been sanctioned to take your money and be thanked for doing so.
