If you need a big garage for your vehicles, you can upgrade to a sectional garage door. Car storage, ATV storage, boat storage, golf cart storage, snowmobile storage and of course lawn tractor storage. If it needs a place, you’ve got the space.
Also, the roughneck is a series by Rubbermaid that is “built to last”. This shed is constructed with double walls and will not rust or rot away because of the materials used. Having a shingle style roof makes for great water flow, keeping your items dry inside. Don’t forget the doors are lockable to maximize your security.
In general, metal shed kits are not designed to be as attractive as wooden or resin sheds and are available in fewer size and shape options. Metal sheds do come in a variety of colors and can be painted but they require frequent repainting to maintain a fresh look. If you plan to purchase a metal shed, keep in mind the type of foundation you have to build your shed on since a lot of metal shed kits do not include a floor of any type. If gravel is your foundation, a metal shed may not be ideal for storage of items other than lawn equipment.
Or maybe you want your shed to match your house. Your house has a custom exterior acrylic paint color, and you have some left over. No problem. Find some made for plastic primer and prime it first.
Resin sheds kits are available in a variety of sizes and some manufacturers, including Lifetime, offer expansion kits to customize the shed to even more size options. Resin sheds are by far the easiest type of sheds to build. These kits are very quick and easy to assemble with less tools, less time, and less "carpentry knowledge" needed than with a wooden shed. Resin shed kits are less expensive than their wooden shed kit counterparts, but more expensive than metal shed kits.
I moved in virtually everything from my old metal shed right away. Everything fits perfectly in my new wood Tuff shed — the storage and organization inside is awesome.
Having a roof over your shed will keep the rain and snow from ruining your supply of wood. Constant rain and snow could reduce the quality of the top layers of your wood stack. Just think, if you always grab firewood from the top layer and that layer is always getting rained on, then you're always grabbing wet wood! If you have ever tried to start a fire with wet wood you know it can be very frustrating and time consuming. A roof over the firewood is very convenient because it's permanent and unlike a tarp or cover, you never have to worry about taking it off and putting it back on. Have the roof overhang the woodpile on all sides to offer protection and prevent water from dripping on your firewood.
One of the major reasons our shed is more expensive than the low quality version is that we opted for vinyl siding (a $400 upgrade). Vinyl siding is virtually maintenance-free, and with a 2×4-over-plywood substructure, it will last for at least 20 years. The wood siding on the low-quality shed will require painting and will wear out far more quickly. We think vinyl looks much better, too.

Tuff Shed built us a 12X20 to go up against an L-shaped retaining wall. Very good quality and decent price, I went direct to the Tuff Shed store in the SFV, and then over to Sylmar to deal direct with the factory. I dropped off some paint and they did it up in our house colors and trim. Two walls, roof and a pair of double doors and a man door, skylight and rotary vent in the roof, can't recall the price, but it was not a helluva lot for what we got. Ours was cheaper since I already had the two concrete walls on site.
I promised in my shed delivery article that I’d be sharing a brief buying guide a week later. I didn’t make good on the timeline, but I didn’t forget the commitment.
