How to Choose Your Storage Shed

What-to-store-in-your-shed-from-keens-buildingsDo you find yourself in need of more space within your house and garage?  Over the years, people acquire more stuff while the room to accommodate all of it lessens.  What do you do when there is no more room in the attic, garage, basement, closet, etc.?  Many people decide to implement a storage shed in their backyard.  Storage sheds are economical and versatile storage solutions.

To begin, think about the size of your storage shed.  How much space can you afford to use in your yard?  We often urge people to think about a particular size and then go a little bigger.  Going bigger is better because it provides you with more options and storage space.  If you have the room, choose a larger-sized storage shed.

Discuss placement with us.  Solid and level ground is optimal, but there are other considerations such as convenience and the avoidance of obstructing views.  We want you to be happy with your storage shed, but it is best practice to discuss your wishes with us in order for the best end result.

What are you going to keep in your storage shed?  There are many things to place in a shed, but for your convenience, think about the entryway.  For instance, if you are keeping a large mower or motor bike in your shed, double doors or an extra-wide entryway may be optimal.  If you are only storing small items, then a normal-sized door is good enough.

Would you like electricity in your storage shed?  Talk to us about your plans.  The option of electricity is always good.  At some point, you may want to use the space as a small office situated with a computer and printer.  In this case, electricity is needed.

Do you want light in your storage shed?  If you are going to use the space as a work area, then an outside view is a good decision.  We have a number of sheds with windows.  In addition, we can discuss customized plans to build a shed to your exact wishes.

We have introduced a number of questions to get you to think about and envision your storage shed.  It is best practice to discuss your wishes with us and let us help you design or choose a shed that will serve you best.

Contact us to discuss plans or available models.  We have been doing this a long time and pride ourselves on providing customer satisfaction!  Don’t continue to put up with a lack of space, start planning for a storage shed today!

Streamline Storage Solutions with a Steel Portable Shed

Streamline your Storage Solutions

While the steel storage shed is usually a place where tools and garden supplies go to die, it is one of the easiest and most efficient places to store and organize things for your home. It can be a workshop for hobbies, a place to pot plants, a general storage area, or a host of other things. A freestanding storage solution can easily be built and installed in a weekend providing a safe, neat place to hold everything from seasonal gardening supplies and tools to household cleaning supplies. In addition, basic organization can help you find items immediately when needed and prevent things from becoming cluttered and messy.

  • By utilizing wall space from ceiling to floor and everything in between, with a simple pegboard system in an accessible location it not only can help you easily grab commonly used tools, but also by adding a few racks for off the floor you can utilize small space and add much more storage.
  • Small baskets and bins attached to hooks can make multiple storage and accessibility much easier. The shed is also a much better place for storing hazardous chemicals and paints as it is away from the house. Just make sure keep everything inside nice and cool.
  • Sometimes decluttering is as simple as “shelving” your problems. Multilevel attractive shelving that can be adjusted for different height and size items allows you to store everything from small boxes to large bins and every item in between avoiding floor clutter and literally, using what is around you. In addition, changes are just a rack adjustment away. With slotted walls and moveable panels, nothing is too permanent to be moved in one afternoon, but still is durable enough to hold up to even the toughest customers.
  • Another multitasker is an all-in-one work-station which allows you to build, store and work to your heart’s content. With different sections for large free standing tools such as saws and routers and shifting work stations this is the perfect area for the home handyman. In addition, floating drawers, rolling bins and sturdy metal toolboxes underneath make use of every available inch of space.
  • There is nothing like repurposing the old for the new. A simple way to declutter the shed for the pet owner is by using various sized garbage cans for storage of pet food. Not only does this save floor space by not keeping flimsy bags around that rip and tear, creating messes of their own, but it also gives your wallet a break by allowing you to buy larger amounts and save money. Finally, no more worrying about bugs and pests with simple snap-tight lids you have easy and efficient storage within storage that lasts much longer.
  • Speaking of pests, most insects and vermin will seek shelter during the harsh winter making your shed a wonderful temporary home. Make sure you perform regular evictions by plugging any holes or damage to prevent infestation as well as keeping your shed clean and free of possible hiding places.

Tips to Buying a Vinyl Shed

Storage sheds come in many different shapes and sizes. In fact, storage sheds come with so many options that our customers are often faced with the choice of purchasing a shed with aluminum siding, T1-11 siding, Hardi-plank siding, steel panels or vinyl siding. Each type of siding has its benefits to the customer but when a  shed is to be used for at-home-storage, many of our customers like to use vinyl siding. So to help you decide if vinyl siding is the right choice for you, we’ve created this post to discuss what does vinyl siding does for you and what are some things to look for when purchasing a vinyl shed.

Maintenance Free

The beauty of vinyl siding on a storage shed is that it is virtually maintenance free. However, to ensure that it will continue to be maintenance free for several years of storage, there are a few things to look for.  If you are storing larger and heavier items, it is important to look for pressure treated shed joists as well as make your floor a thicker concrete slab by about ¾ of an inch more. If for some reason the floor will be getting wet, (this could be because of wet items being stored immediately or just to hose off the interior of the shed occasionally) then purchasing a floor with water sealer of pressure treatment is ideal. By ensuring you have these things, you can know that you will have a beautiful shed that is maintenance free and that will protect and store your items for the years to come.

Is There Enough Room?

Sometimes we get caught up in the idea of a storage shed and forget to remember if we have enough room for one. The most common base for a vinyl storage shed or building is a base of ¾ inch stone that is 2 feet wider and longer than the shed. This creates a good base with plenty of space for the shed. If you can fit the base, you’ll be able to fit the shed. Also, it is important to consider that while getting a vinyl shed that is already put together and ready for installation is the best way to buy a shed, it can also mean trailers and large trucks needing space to deliver it to your intended spot. So be prepared to accommodate the extra space needed for delivery.

Customizable Benefits

Vinyl siding is perfect for at-home-storage because not only is it maintenance free and durable during all weather, it also has a more stylish look that adds to yards or at home storage areas. Vinyl comes in a large variety of color choices and are completely customizable (metal trim, roof shingle and shutter colors) to match your home. This makes your shed look like it was meant to go with your home and add value to your yard.

Sheds can also be created with windows, window screens and even shutters to create an even more cohesive look with your home. Sheds can also be customized with security systems and temperature control when you are storing temperature or expensive sensitive materials.

The benefits of vinyl for at-home storage is almost immeasurable but hopefully with this quick post and these tips, you can see how a vinyl sided shed may be the right choice for you and you will be able to chose a quality vinyl shed from Keens Portable Buildings.
