Many owners do not take the step to make their shed match their houses but it is relatively easy. It adds value to your home and has appeal. Make sure your shed has a few things to make it great. An actual door instead of a swinging door. Lights in the shed can provide light instead of rummaging around in the dark. A window also provides natural light. Add treated wood floors to protect them from water. Add insulation and your shed will be warm and toasty. It is also important to put your shed on an actual foundation about six inches off the ground. Do not put your shed on cement blocks or a windstorm could cause damage.
- Total up all the money you currently spend keeping items stored at a commercial storage site and odds are you could afford a good sized shed.
- Besides being a great way to store stuff, a garden shed adds monetary value to your property.
- Your new shed can take advantage of natural light if you incorporate some skylights or roof windows.
“The process of making the shed match the house is simple. The first step is to create a simple plan of the minimum size your shed should be. One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make is building a shed far too small for their needs.”
