I recall exactly how it felt after I purchased my very first home, at last I was going to possess all the storage room I needed! Or so I thought! After residing in a small confined space it was great to take possession of a large 2 car garage and 3 bedrooms with all those cabinets and closet space!
But it really was not long before all that additional space was filled up because it is common for us to amass things, additionally the larger the home and property the more tools and equipment you need to maintain it, another thing I soon discovered.
What to do about extra space.
For those who have reached that stage where you’ve run out of space and require additional storage you might consider a storage shed or an additional backyard building. You could do what I did and begin taking a look at the cheap metallic outbuildings but it didn’t take very long to realize that low-cost wasn’t what you want unless you possess low-cost equipment or tools you do not really worry about.
What do you need to consider when looking?
No matter what the kind of shed you are likely to buy or construct it needs a good base under it. Do you want rainwater going in underneath? No! Do you want to chance the blowing wind tossing it in to the neighbor’s yard? No! It is crucial that you begin with a good foundation and if that is the case why invest in a great foundation just to put a cheap building on it?
What are your different options?
Your choices are to have a builder construct your new storage shed or you can invest in a do-it-yourself kit and carry out the set up or you could obtain a set of shed plans and construct it yourself. Obviously there are pros and cons you need to consider your circumstance.
