Another outdoor structure that many people choose to build if they have the space and need is a barn. Barns are larger than sheds and are better for storing equipment, such as tractors, and housing animals. They often are two stories or contain lofts for additional storage, while sheds are usually one large room, although some sheds can also have a small loft or sleeping area.
This shed has durable wooden walls to keep your garden tools protected from the elements while increasing your backyard value with an attractive outbuilding.
Unfortunately, there are those times where life throws a curveball at us and an unexpected event suddenly disrupts our life. Whether a natural disaster or a death in the family, occasionally these situations call for quick and reliable storage solution, and for many of us self-storage provides exactly that.
Recreation Unlimited was great: the saleswoman helped us choose the perfect playset for our kids, and the installers helped us choose the right place for it and explained everything we needed to know. We're very happy with our purchase.

In most instances, the biggest determining factor in the cost of your shed is its size. This is true whether you use a kit, a DIY build from a plan, or a custom build. Below are some of the most common sizes and costs, assuming a professionally built shed.
Size plays a critical role in the final bill for your shed, but there are many other cost factors to consider. For instance, how you intend to use the shed will dictate the shed’s size and whether you need electricity or insulation. Your preferred building material will also impact your budget.
Many sheds have a floor, particularly those used as workshops or potting sheds. Floors can be made of poured concrete, plywood, or plastic. If you purchase a kit, you usually need to build the floor separately, while custom sheds can have them built-in. The cost of a shed floor starts at $100.
The location of the unit within the facility is also important. Interior units, units on the first floor, and units near the elevator will typically cost more than other storage units.
Brick sheds may be built with a wooden frame and then clad in brick or, in rare instances, be built of nothing but brick with a timber roof. In either case, they can be customized or finished in a wide variety of ways. Brick is expensive to work with, even with a wooden frame, so expect to pay about $24,000 on average.
