There are various benefits to choosing an 8×14 storage shed, but it helps to know a few logistics before you buy. Knowing the exact application and placement for your 8×14 shed will help you make wise design choices. Take a few of the following considerations into account.
The biggest advantage to an 8×14 shed is its versatility. Whether you use it as overflow storage or a workspace, you’re sure to appreciate its practical nature.
Naturally, there are a lot of factors to take into account before moving forward with your 8×14 shed. Your budget, outdoor space, and overall needs will play a role in your decision. Here are some of the main considerations prior to purchasing.
A portable storage building can seem like a significant expense. However, improper storage can cost you even more. When you invest in an 8×14 storage shed, you’re giving your costly equipment the security it deserves. Our metal storage sheds are sturdy, wind load rated for gusts up 160 mph, and available with a 25-year-warranty.
This means that we work to ensure the longevity of your shed. With proper care and maintenance, your storage shed could last you a lifetime in the backyard of your forever home, making it a worthwhile purchase.
It also protects your high-priced equipment, such as expensive kayaks, mountain bikes, or ATVs, from the elements. You’ll expand the lifespan of all your possessions when you protect them from weathering in a quality 8×14 shed.
Should you choose to ever convert this storage shed into a habitable structure, such as a small guest room or tiny home, you might find it pays for itself. Having a permitted recreational or habitable structure on your property could significantly increase resale value, resulting in an excellent return on your initial investment.
The potential applications of your 8×14 storage shed are many and great. This outdoor structure provides tons of diversity with its reasonable yet roomy size.
…and so much more!
There are a number of factors that contribute to the cost of your 8×14 storage shed. The materials you select will be the largest contributor, with finishes like vinyl leaning on the more affordable side and steel leaning on the more expensive side. Roof type also plays a large role, with traditional, A-frame, and boxed eave roofs serving as a more midrange option. Meanwhile, gambrel-style roofs and vertical roof panels typically cost more.
Based on these factors and more, the general pricing for an 8×14 storage shed starts at $2870 for a standard unit. For an entirely custom structure, this price will differ.

Preparing to make your decision on an 8×14 storage shed? Here are some of our customers’ most frequently asked questions about this popular outdoor structure.
1. What can an 8×14 shed fit?
An 8×14 shed is large enough for most everyday items, such as standard gardening tools, a lawnmower, bicycles, and a tool chest. Most homeowners use them to store rakes, plows, weedwackers, ladders, and other important outdoor supplies.
2. Are portable storage sheds easy to put together?
3. What material should I choose for my 8×14 shed?
Our metal storage sheds are the most resilient option. While aluminum is popular for being lightweight and portable, it is also less durable and more prone to dents. However, it provides superior heat disbursement, keeping the inside of the structure cooler. Meanwhile, steel is entirely dent-proof and scratch-proof, but its heat-absorbing qualities tend to keep it warmer.
4. How should I prepare my outdoor space for a storage shed?
Firstly, you will want to clear a space in your yard that is slightly larger than the area of your storage shed. This allows room from the structure and any setback lines, as well as the additional foundation that may need to surround it.
5. Do you offer various roof types?
Absolutely! Keen’s Buildings offers a wide selection of roofing styles. Our most popular roofs are gabled roofs, as the A-frame structure matches with the traditional aesthetic of most homes. However, we also offer gambrel-style roofs for a more barn-like structure, which offers more overhead storage space. We recommend vertical roof panels for wetter climates, as the downward sloping keeps snow and debris off.
