Storage Sheds

Storage sheds on the market run the gamut from small deck storage boxes made of resin to very elaborate and beautiful cedar sheds that can double as a studio or home office. Some storage shed kits include the frame and brackets only for $40 to $60, with you providing the wood or other material for the walls, roof and floor, while many in wood, metal or vinyl will come with all the components in knock-down panels for assembly.

An attractive, 80-square-foot cedar storage shed with a wide door for riding movers will cost about $2100 and take 4 to 5 hours to erect. A 24-square-foot storage shed measuring 8x3 feet for storing garden tools, soil, lawn chairs and other patio furniture costs about $900 for cedar and $250 to $500 for a brand-name resin construction.

Vinyl and metal storage sheds are widely available in garden centres and in home improvement chain retailers for comparatively reasonable prices. An eight by eight-foot vinyl storage shed at a brand name outdoor supplies retailer will cost about $900, with an 8x10-foot metal structure costing about $450.

Storage sheds are just as easily called tool sheds and vice-versa. Either, especially in the metal and vinyl ranges, are handy for storing bicycles, tools, lawn mowers and patio furniture.
