Or is your garden full of tools and equipment that you don't even know where to store? If this sounds like your home, a storage shed is just the space-expanding solution you need.

    Metal
    Whether galvanized steel or aluminum, metal storage sheds are usually coated with a tough, baked-enamel finish to prevent scratches and rust. These sheds come in a variety of colors and offer years of maintenance-free service.

    Vinyl
    Vinyl sheds are built with double-wall vinyl panels to resist dents. The panels are made to exact standards for a snug fit and solid construction. Many come with paintable steel doors for extra security and long service life. Best of all, the entire structure can endure practically all weather extremes and is virtually maintenance-free.

    High Quality Plastic (With steel reinforcements)

    Plastic sheds can provide a great solution to all your garden storage needs. Pick from a variety of shapes and sizes to suit your space and be at ease knowing that their weather-resistant structure will last. Plastic sheds are also popular due to their durability, ease of maintenance and assembly.

    Size guide for sheds

    Sheds come in a variety of sizes to accommodate your needs. Refer to the diagram to see which one would work best for you.

     

    Small
    Small sheds are anything under 80 square feet. These outdoor units are good for hanging tools and storing lawn and garden supplies including a push mower, pots, bags of fertilizer and soil. 

    Medium
    These sheds are approximately 90 to 120 square feet in size. They can hold larger garden equipment such as riding mowers, bicycles and bulky equipment.

    Large
    These sheds typically range from 144 to 288 square feet. Large sheds can handle anything from large pieces of lawn equipment to recreational vehicles. If you're feeling creative, turn your shed into a workshop or hobby space.



    Accessories

    If there's something you want to add to your storage shed, chances are it's available as an accessory. Here are a few examples:

      Windows and Skylights
      Natural light increases visibility and makes the space more user-friendly. In most cases, you can even order shutters and window boxes to accompany your windows and further enhance the aesthetics of your shed.

      Lofts
      Increase the useable space in your shed with a loft. It allows you to park the mower underneath and still have a solid storage platform overhead.

       


      Shelves
      Organize your tools and materials on handy shelves designed by the manufacturer specifically for your shed. Some bigger sheds like the Factor 6 x 6 and 8 x 6 comes with free shelf kits and hooks for hanging your tools as well!

        Sheds are great storage solutions for everything from mowers to motorcycles. However, their spacious design, high durability and easy assembly make them excellent choices for some other uses you might not have considered.

          Playhouse
          You can order windows and partitions to add to most outdoor storage. Paint them bright colors and use your imagination to make a garden shed the perfect playhouse for children of all ages.

          Hobby or Craft Hut
          No matter what your hobby is, you're sure to find a barn or garden shed that's just the right size for your needs. Just think, you could have a room to spread out all your materials and a private work space all your own.

          She Sheds
          Similar to a Man Cave, the She Shed is where a woman can get away from it all. Take one look on social media to see the creative ways that sheds are being used. Beautiful windows and French doors are added, as are window boxes, Dutch doors and even front porches with twinkling lights. Some are turned into mini-greenhouses, writing nooks or simply used as a calm oasis away from the chaos of everyday life.

          Our high store, grande and patio shed even comes with paintable walls that allows you to customized the design and outlook of the shed to suit any of your theme and decor!
