While adding more space to a home is difficult and expensive, a storage shed or detached garage offers more square footage without the hefty price tag. Here are six reasons homeowners should considering buying a storage building.
Additional Storage Space
One obvious reason people invest in sheds and garages is for the extra storage space. Many people let lawn tools, sporting equipment, holiday decorations, exercise machines, and other infrequently used items overrun their garages and basements. A shed or garage brings tons of storage space, opening up coveted space in the home and garage.
The Perfect Backyard Retreat
Sheds make the perfect spot to retreat from the house. With many different sizes available, they can be turned into game rooms, bar spaces, reading rooms, art studios, music rooms, and more. The possibilities for the ultimate man cave, she shed, or hangout spot are endless!
A Home for Toys and Sports Equipment
Instead of allowing the kids’ scooters, bikes, and outdoor toys to take up half the garage, why not store them in the new shed? Depending on the size, it can be used to house lawn games, sporting equipment, boats, riding toys, and more. Homeowners will have peace of mind knowing their outdoor toys are safely and securely stored.
Of course, having a designated spot for all the outdoor toys and equipment comes with another upside: improved safety. It keeps these items from becoming safety hazards as they’re strewn about the yard, plus it keeps tempting valuables away from the eyes of would-be thieves. It also makes it harder for kids to access dirt bikes, ATVs, lawn equipment, and other tools that could be dangerous without supervision.
Increased Home Value
Homebuyers love storage space! From a basic storage shed like the Patriot Quaker to the spacious Elite A-Frame Two-Story, the extra space makes homes more desirable to prospective buyers. For homes without attached garages, detached options like the Salt Box are both practical and crucial to maximizing the resale value of the home.
The Ultimate Workspace
A classic garage is the perfect place for tradesmen, builders, mechanics, and the DIY type to get work done. With a designated workspace, homeowners won’t have to worry about tracking sawdust and debris into the house. Plus, all the tools and equipment can be locked away securely to keep kids and pets safe.
