Things to Consider When Buying a Custom Shed

August 28, 2020

There are many reasons to build a custom shed. A beautiful custom shed is a great way to spruce up your backyard and offer a wide range of new possibilities from storage space to a kid’s playhouse to Dad’s workshop. So how do you know which custom shed it right for you?

Price vs. Quality

The price of a new shed shouldn’t be the only determining factor when making your decision. Although some shoppers may be drawn to the cheapest price, outdoor sheds with higher-quality materials and solid construction last longer and look better than the cheapest options.

If budget is a primary consideration, focus on simple, well-built sheds made with basic materials rather than those with fancy details or premium materials.

The Appearance of the Shed

You want you to show off your brand-new storage building. We believe a nice shed can add to the value of your home. You need to make it looks like the shed is part of your property.

Whether it’s making sure the color of the shed is right, or by building a pathway from your home to the shed. It’s important to make sure your shed blends well with the existing landscape and exterior of your property.

Zoning Laws and HOA Rules

Before having a custom shed built or even settling on shed size, it’s important to learn about zoning law restrictions for sheds in your area.

In many areas, sheds up to a certain size—typically 120 square feet—are allowed by zoning laws without prior approval, but restrictions on shed placement are common.

Also, if you belong to a homeowner’s association, check the bylaws concerning sheds. For example, you may be required to keep your shed a certain amount of distance from your property line. Some local zoning laws in some places require a shed to be at least 3 feet from the property line.
