Shedding Light On A Dim Matter

October 7th, 2017by BreannaC

You’re in the market for a small shed but you just don’t know where to start. Today, we would love to share with you a few tips on what you should be asking yourself before purchasing a portable shed.

 

Here are a few questions you might ask.

 

Who do I trust to build it?

That’ s a great question. Choose a company that is reputable and that has been in the business for awhile. Check online for reviews and their warranty information. Quality Buildings has been in  business for over 10 years. We love what we do and we care about our customers and their needs.

 

Why do I need a shed?

Before you start looking at portable buildings, decide exactly why you are needing a shed in the first place. Whether it was to store your mower out of the elements, or to organize some of your things. Determine what you will use it for and what it could also potentially house.

 

What size will fulfill my needs?

So, you now have decided why you need this shed. Onward to what size would best work for you? Do you need space for a lawn mower and your dirt bike? Or just a few tubs of things and gardening tools. This will determine the size you will need. The smallest shed we have is 8×8 and the largest we have is a 14×42.

Where should my portable building go?

Finding the perfect location for your shed is definitely one of the most important things you should think about.

  1. Flat Level Ground is a must to properly set the building. It’s possible that you might have to have some dirt work done.
  2. Keep in mind the best location that is convenient for you. You don’t want you shed on the back 2.5 acres of your yard if your gardening equipment is in the front half of your yard.
  3. One of our customer’s top favorite features is the portability of  our sheds. It’s a great thing to have the option of moving your portable barn if the need arises.

 

When would be the best time to order?

That’s up to each individual person. Typical delivery time is 10-15 days weather permitting.

 

How Will This Shed Help?

There are many ways that a shed can be useful. Protecting larger valuables such as lawnmowers from the elements, Storing all your tackle , and a place to neatly house your camping equipment would fall under the top three reasons not to delay in procuring a storage barn.  You should also consider options available to add on to the building. For instance, would It benefit you to purchase the light package? Would shelving benefit your needs?

As the cooler weather rolls in, we know you will be spending more time outside. Check out these 10 ways to make your backyard awesome this fall.

Clean up the Yard

Fall is a great time for yard work because the temperatures are finally starting to drop! Spend the weekend cleaning up your yard before winter hits. Rake the leaves to make the yard appear a little less cluttered. For easy transportation, rake the leaves onto a plastic tarp. Fertilize the grass so that the roots will continue to receive the nutrients that they need to stay healthy and grow over the winter. Trimming back dead limbs now will prevent unexpected breakage during the first winter freeze or snow of the year. Make sure to bring houseplants inside, too. Place them by a window so that they continue to receive sunlight and spray them with water to keep the soil moist.

Colorful Pots and Planters

Add some color and design to your green landscape by using colorful planters and pots for your plants. These pots are a great way to continue the color scheme or decorations that you have in your sitting or dining area of your backyard as well, making your backyard a complete masterpiece.

Yard Games

Oversized yard games are the coolest toy on the shelves right now. Life size Jenga, foot-long dominos and rope and wood tic-tac-toe are just a few of the game-night activities that have been enlarged to be the centerpiece of your tailgates and weekend barbecues. You can also find simple DIY tutorials to make your favorite game at home. All of the kids in your neighborhood will be wishing that they had your backyard.

Outdoor Furniture

Weekend game nights are now at your house because you have the coolest DIY yard games your friends have seen, but where are your guests going to sit during your gathering? Make your backyard a luxurious hangout area with outdoor furniture including sofas or chairs, or a traditional dining area with a table and chairs.

Fire Pit

Fall means cooler weather and cooler weather means it’s time to be warmed up by the fire. Fire pits are an easy way to make your backyard look elegant and are relatively low maintenance. Place some chairs around your fire pit for late night conversations with friends or for roasting s’mores with the kids. You don’t have to build a fire from scratch to have the campfire feeling anymore!

Portable Storage

Hide all of the kids’ pool toys and the summer mosquito lamps in portable outdoor buildings. Storage containers are also perfect for hiding all of the little things that you need to have on hand but tend to be eyesores when you have company over.

Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor string lights are an inexpensive and practical way to simply dress up your backyard or to make your backyard ready for late nights by the fire. Outdoor string lights come in a variety of shapes and sizes so that you can find one that fits your backyard’s personality. They make for magical nights!

Outdoor Rugs

Sometimes your yard may need an extra splash of color and that’s where outdoor rugs come in. Find a rug for your patio that matches your outdoor furniture and watch the space come to life. Adding a rug to your outdoor kitchen area or outdoor living space will tie it all together.

Hammocks and Swings

Lazy Saturday mornings call for your favorite coffee, a good book and fresh air. Hang a hammock in between two of your trees to make a space for your afternoon naps or add a porch swing to your back patio to relax on and enjoy a glass of wine while you unwind from a busy week. It will also add some dimension to your landscape. 

Gazebos and Pergolas

Expand your home’s living space by adding a gazebo or pergola to your backyard. These freestanding structures add a sense of community to the otherwise bare space in your yard and add an attractive focal point to your landscape. These structures can house a dining or living area, regardless of the weather.
