Storage Sheds Can Add Value

from our "home remodeling" project library

A garden storage shed provides a natural home for your lawn mower, gardening tools, and other garden and yard necessities. But you can also think of it as an extension of your home that adds not only space, but increased home value, architectural interest, and a practical garden workspace, where seedlings are nurtured and plants are potted. Your shed can be a place where another interest is pursued -- or perhaps it frees up space in your garage or basement to do just that.

How to Pick the Right Garden Storage Unit for You

Before adding a garden storage shed to your property, ask yourself some key questions:

  • How would you like to use the space? Create a wish list to determine the storage shed's desired square footage.
  • Where would you put it?
  • Would you like the building to match your home architecturally? And if it doesn't, how might that affect the appeal and value of your home?
  • Would your storage shed need to withstand harsh weather conditions or the teeth of squirrels, rodents, or other wildlife that might try to get inside?
  • What's your budget?

Consider Your Options

You can buy a storage shed at a home improvement store and pay to have it installed, or have one custom designed and built; you can also go the do-it-yourself route with a kit or build a garden storage shed from scratch.  Each option comes with a different price tag and set pros and cons, but all of them offer endless possibilities.
