Sheds

Your garage space will probably be needed to park your car as the winter approaches. In addition, you may have a lawnmower, outdoor furniture, grill, pool equipment, or garden supplies, but how will you dispose of them? An outdoor storage shed can solve this problem. The types, sizes, and materials of sheds vary. On the side of a garage, a lean-to storage shed provides a simple structure to store the overflow. Outdoor Equipment and supplies can be stored in a large garden shed.

Price vs. Quality

You can quickly load and retrieve wood for your fireplace or wood-burning stove by using an open-sided "woodshed," which keeps elements off the wood as it "seasons." If you have children, they will want to turn the shed into a playhouse or fort if you plan to use it for storage.

The quality of the outdoor storage shed does not solely depend on the price. However, the lowest price invariably draws some shoppers, who immediately turn blind and ignore some critical considerations. Better material and construction in outdoor storage sheds will last longer and look better than the cheapest options. An outbuilding can often be purchased for a few hundred dollars more than the main house. Generally, choose sheds with simple, well-built structures made with inexpensive materials over those with elaborate details and premium materials, especially if budget is an issue. 

Design Considerations

A structure outside is not just a place to store things. Keeping a shed that matches your property's aesthetics is just as important as keeping it functional. It is ideal to choose a shed that conforms to the design of your house. For example, you may like to build your shed in a rustic style if you have a country-style house, perhaps with board and batten siding. In a more formal setting, you can choose an elaborate design or pick a theme that matches the architecture of your houses. Such as an arched door or window to carry over to your outbuilding.

Blending Into the Landscape

Considering your outbuilding as part of the landscape is essential. Outdoor storage sheds can blend into a landscape rather than stand out like sore thumbs if planted appropriately. For example, a shed can be surrounded by flower beds planted with annuals or perennials. Trellises can be installed along the shed's walls so vines can grow.

Wall and Siding Materials

You have three different materials to choose from for storage sheds: wood, metal, and plastic. Like a house or garage, wood sheds are typically built from studs and covered with plywood siding. A woodshed with a traditional lap siding over plywood sheathing might be an upscale shed. 

The walls and roof are made of a factory-painted or vinyl-coated metal shell in a metal shed. The most common type of plastic shed is vinyl (polyvinyl chloride) or another plastic type. No paint or coating is necessary to achieve their color because it is inherent to their material. Metal and plastic sheds are both available in kits for do-it-yourself assembly.

Foundation and Flooring

Floors are not always included in sheds. They are usually framed with plywood and have standard framing beneath them. Many metal and plastic sheds come with a floor system sold separately from the shed structure. You can choose from the manufacturers or build your own. The price of the shed can be increased by $100 or more with a floor.

Decorative Details

There is power in small gestures. French doors are often found on outdoor storage buildings. A window box, shutter, or weathervane can also add a personal touch. The outdoor storage building has to be viewed every day for the foreseeable future. It is possible to design something that will be an eyesore or something that will be appealing with a few decorative elements.

Additional Storage

You can supplement an expensive, more oversized shed with a less expensive, smaller model. That is, if the clutter on your property makes you think one unit isn't enough. They include:

  • Vertical sheds

  • Horizontal sheds

  • Corner sheds

Alternatively, you can opt for a shed with a storage loft, eliminating the need for a second unit. You can attach a lean-to shelter to the outside of one of your shed walls if you need a place to store firewood but don't want to give up interior space for it.

Points to Remember:

  • Before buying an outdoor storage shed, calculate how much storage space you need by identifying the items you store there.

  • Discuss your plans with your neighbors and determine whether your town requires building permits.
