Through the years, I notice that the stuff we own increase inevitably. Our house is running out of space to hold them because neither one of us wants to say goodbye to our old possessions due to sentimental reasons. When a friend learned about my dilemma, he immediately suggested to me the use of a garden shed for storage purposes. This really caught my interest. Besides having a permanent spot to store our overflowing stuff, I can turn a part of it into a workshop area for my woodwork project or turn it into a beautiful garden space.
I had to check my options for garden sheds and so I searched the web. It was not easy to choose the right one for me because there are many companies in this industry that offer varied and wonderful models for the distinct tastes and needs of homeowners. The good thing is I was able to narrow down my choices to at least three when I gauged each type I was drawn to according to important factors like framework and usability.
There are many types of garden sheds. These are classified according to the material, style and use. I found the infographic below to be very helpful when I was choosing the ideal shed for me.
Additionally, I chose a shed that seems to fit the overall design of our house. I didn’t want it to stand out looking odd in my lot. I also considered a high ceiling for my shed. It is because I wanted it to be well-ventilated and well-lighted during the day especially when I’m in there working on a project.
