This portable storage tent doesn't look great, but it will keep what’s in their dry and out of the sun.
Not the best place, not the best prices, and there was a dead roach in one of the hot tubs. The only upside to this place was that they didn't have a high-pressure sales person hounding you.
Most sheds need wide doors to accommodate equipment and storage. Therefore, a barn door is the most frequently installed style because they are wider than standard doors. Barn door costs start at $100.
With Wood, if you don't keep a fresh coat of paint and where necessary new shingles in place, the wood will rot and the metal will rust. Certainly not what you want when you build a garden shed where you be storing your valuable items

We can deliver your shed pre-built or we can build it on site. Pre-built is convenient, fast, and the best value. However, when access to your yard is a problem, building on site is usually the best option.
On average, the labor costs of building a shed average around $70 an hour, or around half the total cost to build a custom shed - $3,000 for a 10’ x 12’ wooden shed. For a kit, expect to pay a fee of $100 to $500, depending on how complex it is to assemble. When contracting with a shed building company, they supply all the materials and labor and, in many instances, build all or most of the shed off-site, then deliver it to your property for finishing.
NOTE: Features, specifications and options may vary by region. See your local dealer for details.
The assembly is simple, clean, safe and can be completed in four to five hours with two people. All parts are pre-cut, drilled and numbered for ease of assembly. All you need to provide is a level surface of either wood, or concrete, the size of the desired building. In addition you will need a power drill, hammer, measuring tape, pliers and a ladder.
It’s just about time to start all those spring cleanup projects. It’s been a tough year on us all. If your shed is also needing some TLC, how about a fresh, clean, spring color?
In a common thing for people to be needing more space, and these mini barns are sometimes overlooked as a viable option. Fortunately, there are a few good reasons why you should consider one of these. Mini barns make perfect sense for smaller properties that don’t have sufficient space available for larger outside buildings. First, the mini barn is simply a basic shed with short sidewalls and a gambrel or Dutch-style roof. They are short buildings in comparison to the Dutch Barn and they don’t have the height needed for a loft, but they do offer a great look and ample space.
Internally the roof panels were supported on a central ridge beam and the side walls. This meant that there was very little inside the shed to obstruct the space. And the roof was strong enough to resist all but the most extreme snow loads.
It is strong, the material in the Yardstash is a lot stronger than other storage tents, but it’s not a wooden or metal shed. It does tend to work better in semi-sheltered areas like under a pergola or alongside your house.
