The Great Look of Mini Barn Sheds allows homeowners to provide storage for many items out of their home in a shed that still looks great and adds value to your property. Whether you choose a large or small shed, you will find that the mini-barn style is a great addition to your “ranch”, whether it is a subdivision lot or a thousand acres.
One of the biggest problems in most homes is storage. While older homes often had basements or attics that provided adequate storage for all those extra items, newer homes simply do not make provisions for everything that you need to have stored. Thousands of people will spend $100 or more each month renting a mini warehouse. With just a few of those rent payments you could purchase or build your own storage in the back yard that will prove to be much more convenient.
In addition to use for household storage, these sheds are ideal for use to store lawn and garden equipment. Mowers and power tools as well as hand tools that are used to keep the yard and garden looking great can be stored in the shed and out of the weather. Your tools will last much longer and work better with proper protection.
Sheds built on location may be placed on concrete floor. This floor provides a sturdy foundation for a shed that will last for many years. The floor is able to support the weight of almost anything that you could place in the shed. Sheds built offsite will have wooden floors with beams that support them. Any wood that will be exposed to the ground should be pressure treated to prevent rot.
The mini barn design is very popular among homeowners. Some of these little barns have a roof that starts at a very slight angle but makes a break near the edge to give a very sharp slope. This roof type offers the advantage of a taller storage area in the center that offers enough height for the average person to stand up straight while inside the shed.
If your garage and all the closets in your home are filled to the max or if you are tiered of paying regularly to rent storage space, a mini barn storage shed can be the answer to your problem. Whether you buy the plans and build the shed yourself, purchase a kit or buy a completed shed, you will find that this is a convenient solution to all your storage problems.
