People used to gather together and help their neighbors and friends build their sheds and outdoor storage buildings from the ground up. Someone always knew something about cement, another was pretty good with a hammer and yet another worked as a roofer or carpenter. You'd help them, too.
Well, not so anymore. People still help each other nowadays, when we can, but our schedules seem to be a little more congested. The manufacturers and the retailers picked up on that a few decades ago and started making and offering time saving options to our shed building issues. You don't even need to build a shed today. Just pick up the phone and order one - to size - delivered!
There are so many options now you should think about spending an hour or two just perusing the web before you even start thinking of creating a storage solution. To begin your quest, search "storage shed kit", "storage shed plans" or, to find places you can go to check out a few locally, "storage shed your town" or "storage shed kit your town" (ie. storage shed ft worth tx). You'll see options you never knew you had.
If you are the do-it-yourself-I-can-do-anything kind of person, like many of us, you probably will want to opt for something you can build yourself. That seems simple enough. But wait. Are we talking about actually drawing plans, pulling a building permit and calling the cement company for estimates on pouring a floor or footer? How about eliminating the "draw the plans" part and find a plan already drawn. Would you be interested in FREE sheds and outdoor storage plans? No kidding, search "free outdoor storage shed plans" and see what's there.
As to the building permit, you may not have a choice. Some jurisdictions require a permit if you build anything on your property! Don't stress, though, as permits are cheap and exist only to ensure safety. Inspectors are mostly friendly, helpful people and the process is painless. Remember; if the "powers that be" discover you built something that called for a permit and you didn't get one, they can make you take it down or move it.
Don't have time to build your shed? Perhaps a kit is in your future. Shed kits come in a plethora of styles and sizes! The materials range from plastic to vinyl to metal to wood. You could even buy a double car garage kit! Mostly, when you think of a shed kit, however, you think of those rubber-plastic jobs displayed in the parking lots of the big boxes. But there's much, much more than that. Today, kits come in materials, sizes and designs to accommodate every taste and need. Simply search "shed kit" and click around.
The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting cooler. Now's the time to be thinking of creating that little bit of additional storage you need. Of course, you can always rent a storage unit. Other than packing everything up, driving it to the unit, unloading, organizing, driving back home and driving to the unit every time you need something, its a lot easier than simply putting up a shed in the back yard. Or, are you someone who thinks its wise to let your $30,000 SUV brave the winter elements so your $250 lawn mower can stay in the garage? Really, with all the options we have today regarding outdoor storage sheds, its crazy to not at least check out what's available.
Today you can even match or compliment your home's style and design with accessories and elements that will actually add to your home's value! And, many of the outdoor storage sheds are designed to greatly improve your landscaping and gardening productivity... which may add to the value of your home, as well.
