It’s a common fact of life that our home storage needs change from year to year or even month to month. Wouldn’t it be nice if our houses and furniture could keep up with our rapidly evolving lifestyles?
That’s exactly why experts and builders recommend that when you purchase a shed, you should first calculate your current storage and space needs — and then add on an extra 25% for all future needs. Wooden sheds, especially high-quality Amish built sheds, should be able to serve your family for a minimum 15 to 20 years, if not longer. Needless to say, a lot can change in that time.
Whether you already have a shed and are looking to get new use out of it or you’re just getting ready to buy your first, there are almost as many ways to put custom Amish sheds to use as there are ways to design them. Here’s a few you may not have considered before!
- Garden Shed
This is perhaps one of the most common uses for an outdoor shed, besides regular storage. Keep your garden equipment and tools close to your growing space outside for easy access and safe storage.
- Animal Shelter
Give your furry friends some extra outdoor space to call their own. Outdoor cats and dogs, as well as larger farm animals, will enjoy the shelter of custom Amish sheds to shield them from rain, snow, or too-hot sun.
- Office Space
When you need to get away from the house to get some work done, you don’t necessarily have to go any further than your own backyard. It makes commuting a lot easier!
Playrooms aren’t just for kids; take that word any way you want. Whether you use your shed as a space for the kids’ toys or for your own — think tools, sports equipment, an entertainment system, or even a bar — sheds can be built or redesigned to suit your needs.
Start to finish, it takes around eight weeks to build new or custom Amish sheds or other furniture. Once you start thinking about a shed as not just a “shed,” but a space with lots of creative potential, the possibilities are virtually endless.
