At Countryside Barns, we strive to build the highest-quality storage shed for our customers at an affordable price. We handle the whole process – from ordering to manufacturing to delivery and installation.
So, I was pretty much intent on buying a wood shed. But, just for good measure, I did check out metal sheds and plastic sheds, too: Unfortunately, metal sheds can rust — like my existing one did. And I didn’t want another rusty metal shed on my hands in a few years. I once owned a small plastic shed. It’s still standing after nearly 20 years (now in my sister and brother-in-law’s yard). It’s served both me and now my sister and her husband well — but they’re ready to replace it. The plastic shed’s paneling is beginning to warp, allowing water inside the shed. .
Been waiting 10 weeks for a cabin & still waiting! We have been given lots of misinformation & they seem to be full of excuses! But yet they have had the payment in full from the tine of the order. Never have had to give a bad review before, maybe someday when we actually get the cabin we hope it will be nice! When u say u are going to return a customers call shortly & never do that's not good customer service either!
I don’t like giving the “It Depends.” answer but it definitely applies here. Is it a shed “kit” you would buy at Home Depot? Are you buying through a shed builder that provides all materials and build it onsite? Are you buying the materials and having someone else build it? Or are you buying all the materials and building yourself? If building yourself, do you have all the tools required or do you need to buy/rent some? On top of that, you’re looking type of foundation, size, materials used, etc.
I looked at the Tuff Shed originally but it is more than I want to spend. I haven't bought one yet but when I do I'm going this route, 8 X 10. They make a 10 x 15 as well that would be even better. Sam's Club and Costco both carry certain sizes of this brand. http://reviews.costco.com/2070/1130...ghton-8-x-10-storage-shed-reviews/reviews.htm
Joe, I tend to have the same sentiments. We’ve heard Advantech sheathing is a really good material for sheathing work – even better than plywood. I can stand OSB as long as it’s being used in the right space, under the right conditions. The floor and roof of a shed is absolutely no place for OSB.
If you're happy with the condition of the shed and you think it can serve your purpose, the next step is to figure out how to move it to your property. How you transport the shed without damaging it may be a deal breaker. Can the shed be moved in one piece? If so, do you have access to the type of vehicle that's necessary to move it? If you're renting a truck, how large does it need to be and do you need a specialized license or a permit to drive the vehicle on the road? Will the shed need to be dismantled and reassembled? If so, do you have the time and energy to make it happen? Do you need to hire extra hands to make the workload lighter?
The walls are constructed with traditional 2"x4" studs on 16" centers with a bottom and top plates — just like your house. This is extremely rare in shed construction.
I love Hanover products, they are of high quality at reasonable pricing. They sell outdoor furniture from dining to patio heaters and much more. Check out their Amazon store for all their products by clicking here!
If you don’t have a nice neighbor getting rid of their old fencing check on Craig’s List or at your nearest Habit ReStore. If you can’t score used pickets you can buy them or substitute plywood for the shelves.

I am writing to let you know how much I appreciate the service that was extended to me in my purchase of one of your buildings. I love my building and I really want to extend my appreciation to you, Old Hickory and especially to Nicholas Wentworth, for doing what was necessary so that I would be happy with my purchase. I love my building!!! I have a small antique store with a farm stand on the porch in very rural Maine and I love it. Thank you for your great service. I want you at Old Hickory to know that Nicholas Wentworth does business with impeccable skill. He is so much more than just the delivery guy!!!! Nicholas shows great skill in delivering these buildings, but his character is profound in today's society. He has great ethics, great manners and is charming to say the least. He was more than helpful to me and I want him recognized for that.
First, you have to decide on a company to buy from. Cook Portable Warehouses started as a family company in 1984 and is still a family company to this day. You can trust our local dealers to find the perfect portable building to meet your needs. You can find yours here!
When looking for a luxury backyard shed I recommend the Keter Fusion. Keter has many great shed options and you will see a couple on the list, but feel free to check their Amazon store out by clicking here to see all their options. The wooden mahogany look is created by the wood-plastic composite that is made out of recycled materials from the wood industries waste. This material is perfect for the reason that it won’t corrode and it is resistant to rot and decay.
The shingles you have on your High Quality Shed are the ones we put on the 25 year old roof here. Love the look of them.
Building a shed is a big undertaking. While we recommend purchasing a pre-built shed from one of our expert builders, we understand that some experienced DIYers will want to do the work themselves. We've put together these free DIY shed plans to help.
If you end up making your own, double check where you are fixing has enough support to hold what you want.
By its very nature, plastic is quite lightweight, making it quite easy for your plastic shed to be blown over. More importantly, if your shed is one that has been snapped together, the wind may not only knock your shed over but also break it apart.
