If you have a large enough shed, you could have it completely finished, wired for electricity, and plumbing run to it to create a tiny house. Because most of the costs are in the finishing, this would not be an inexpensive project unless you intend to do it yourself over time. Finishing costs will run around $125 a square foot, plus insulation, running the plumbing and electrical lines, and other interior finishing add even more costs, for a total of up to $250 a square foot. This assumes that you do not add square footage onto the shed because most sheds are only a single room and are not divided into kitchen, sleeping, and bathing areas. These houses are not legal to live in unless they are permitted and inspected, however. Get Local Cost .

Many factors influence shed costs, including the shed’s size, material, and construction. A tiny prefabricated shed for your tools will cost much less than a custom-built, spacious brick shed. A prefabricated kit is easy to install yourself, whereas you’d need to hire a skilled brick mason to achieve a custom brick shed.
The 128 square foot of floor space makes it easy to move around inside, and there's enough room to add shelves for holding pots or bags of soil.
Some storage facilities allow 24-hour, 7 day-a-week access to their units, meaning you'll be able to access your things whenever necessary. As you might expect, this storage amenity will come at a higher price than basic units, but depending on your needs they may be well worth it.
Dad was looking for ways to keep his five growing sons busy on their farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Also, dairy farming wasn’t enough to support the family of seven children, and he had to find another way to keep the family fed.
As we said, per month the average price to rent a self-storage unit is $90, which means if you extrapolate that out, the average cost per year would be just over $1,000. For smaller units, the cost can be as low as $600-$700 per year, while the larger units could easily cost $2,000 a year. A year is considered a long-term commitment though and is pretty uncommon in the industry – most storage contracts will be month-to-month.
Top Tip: Drill pilot holes in the wooden plates, before inserting the 3” wood screws in the wall studs. Use a good mire saw to make the cuts, as accurately as possible.
