Storage Sheds: See What's in Store
1. Perhaps you're not a gardener, nor a handyman, nor are you all that into the outdoors. Even if all this is true, you probably don't like living amongst all that stuff you don't use but aren't quite sure what to do with. The storage shed tackles all of these problems.
2. Should the above mentioned be true, you probably aren't interested in a DIY storage shed or storage shed kits. You're in luck, there are plenty of pop up storage sheds that are ready to go in an instant. They may require a turn of a screwdriver or two, but you'll figure it out.
3. If you are willing to do a little handiwork, or are even looking forward to building a storage shed to give your home the added storage it needs, you're options just increased exponentially. DIY kits can be found for metal sheds, wood sheds, vinyl sheds and plastic sheds. Most can be assembled without too much prior experience in carpentry.
4. Space is the pivotal question when it comes to a storage shed. Get out the tape measure and draw a few boxes on your driveway. Then put your stuff in it. Does it fit? Can you walk through it comfortably? We don't suggest going over your budget just because you have too much junk, but this method will let you know if you need to reassess your storage needs.
5. The storage shed, in particular, should not be something that you're showing off. Many are designed to sit directly next to the house, or out of view from the front. In this sense, you can get a lot more space for less money, because you aren't spending on aesthetic frills.
6. If you're just starting out with your home, don't look around at your current belongings and decide on what size storage shed you'll need. Chances are good you'll amass a healthy reserve of tools, vehicles, knick knacks, doodads and home jetsam over the years that will need to go somewhere. Best to plan for the future.
7. Homeowner associations don't take too kindly to structures that don't adhere to their idea of style. It's unfortunate, but that's the way it is. Make sure your storage shed plans are in line with any neighborhood covenants. Also check with city officials for zoning laws and permits required.
8. If you need to wire your storage shed for electricity, or install a little sink for basic clean up (keeps greasy hands off the house doors and kitchen surfaces), make sure to consider the feasibility of these amenities before you decide on a particular spot and a particular storage shed.
