Many households have more items to store than available storage area. They often choose a storage facility service, but the monthly fees could add up in the long run. Alternatively, it is a good idea to invest in a shed for storage purpose. This should be acceptable if the annual storage fees are particularly high. For a 10 x 10 storage space, it could cost us $800 each year and in many cases, we need more than one space units. In this case, it could be more affordable to build a small storage shed that can be expanded in the future. In the end, we would be able to save plenty of cash. In fact, it is acceptable to spend $20,000 to build a storage shed, if we can avoid renting storage units for more than ten years.
Another thing that we should consider that prices of storage units will keep on rising and it is better to build a storage shed right now than later. Many times, people who go to storage units are concerned by the fact that they are unable to find the right one for them. However, it should be noted that many storage areas have proper climate control that can help us to store valuable antiques properly. If this is our purpose, it is important to consider adding an appropriate climate control feature in our shed.
In general, storage shed should allow us to organize our house and open up significant space in our house. Many families have third or fourth child that they don’t plan on having, so additional space inside the house can be an issue.
Sheds could also be used for a place for our pets, particularly when we are on vacation. If we construct a specific room in our shed with continuous supply of water and plenty of food, we should be less concerned when we leave the home. We can ask neighbours to occasionally check our pet in the shed and if we are serious enough, we could install a webcam in the shed, so we could check our pets and other belongings. Also, a member of the family could be allergic to pets, so a shed will also be useful to prevent pets from entering the main residence too often.
This should save us a lot of stress and money. If we properly build our shed, we won’t regret it. If we make our shed versatile enough, it will be nearly limitless in terms of functionality.
In fact, some homeowners are particularly proud of their shed and neighbours feel jealous about it. Some people make a “Man shed” and this allows them to limit visits to the local pubs. Children could also be allowed to play in sheds with adult supervision. In this case, we should consider making changes that allow us to turn the shed into kids’ playhouse very quickly. With so much functionality, it is hard to think any reason not to have a shed in our property.
