Three Factors To Look Out For When Storing Belongings In Your New Shed

Three Factors To Look Out For When Storing Belongings In Your New Shed

When buying a shed for your backyard, you’re probably shopping for one that you can store specific items in. With that being said, it’s important to know what types of products aren’t safe to store in a shed so that it may help you narrow down your options. There are three different factors that you have to watch out for when using your shed for storage. Those three factors include temperature, moisture, and creatures. 

When summer hits and the weather is extremely hot, a variety of stored items have the possibility of getting damaged in your shed. If you plan to store items like seasoned candles in your shed, you may want to reconsider your options. Make sure you organize your stuff when placing it into your shed so that you know that whatever is going in there will not be damaged. 

Moisture is another thing that you have to look out for when storing inventory in your new shed. If you live in a place that gets very humid, you’ll want to make sure that items you plan to keep in your shed are sealed properly. You’ll also want to make sure that when you design your shed with Golden State Buildings that you ask for it to be properly ventilated. This will help reduce the condensation that can build up from humidity.

You’ll also want to look out for those pests and little critters that like to make their way into places where they don’t belong. Sheds aren’t designed to keep these bugs out of your building, so keep that in mind when you go to store your stuff. 

Belongings such as food, paint, important photos and documents, and clothing are items that you should avoid storing. With other items, you will want to make sure that they are stored properly in sealed containers to avoid condensation and bugs from damaging them. 

Although there are several things that shouldn’t be placed in your new shed, there are still countless items that can be! You just have to be smart about the items you choose to store. Belongings that are safe for your new shed include lawn tools, lawn equipment, gasoline, propane tanks, tools for building, furniture that belongs outdoors, seasonal decor, and so much more!

Our Mission Statement | About Golden State Buildings

Our Mission Statement | About Golden State Buildings

At Golden State Buildings it is our goal to exceed the expectations of our customers on every building.

Our Buildings

Our buildings are engineered to withstand the elements and to stand up to the test of time. To accomplish that end, we use wood – a renewable resource with centuries of proven performance, unmatched strength, and unbeatable beauty. 

We would like to thank Golden State Buildings for the excellent work building our shed. We sought them out to build a garage, not knowing just what kind of building we wanted or needed. Roland took our ideas and designed the perfect building for our property. He then provided a turnkey project by taking care of all permits, etc. When the building was started there were no delays and his crew worked diligently to complete the job, in a timely manner. All crew members were polite and knew his job. The shed was completed on time, within budget and job site was left clean. -Earl Friant

We Focus On Our Work Ethic

To be able to exceed our customer’s expectations on every building, we offer value, durability, and service. 

Having Golden State Buildings replace our garage was a good experience. The family-run business works as a well-oiled machine. Always pleasant, considerate and busy. This is the second time in 12 years we’ve used Golden State Buildings and would use them again if needed. I would recommend them highly. I was well pleased with the outcome. – John Reedley

We Offer Reasonable Prices

Golden State Buildings provides the best value for your money through many standard features, affordable prices, and high-quality materials. 

We had Golden State Buildings design, fabricate, and install a custom clubhouse for our grandchildren. Golden State Buildings listened to our needs, were courteous and friendly. They delivered a reasonably priced and quality product and installed it in a professional manner. I was impressed with the final product and would definitely use them again. – Steven Coarsegold

We Use Quality Materials

Golden State Buildings builds in durability by using quality craftsmanship, 25-year roofing materials, decay and termite resistant LP SmartSide, a green building material, factored primed, and SFI certified wood. 

I saw Golden State Buildings at the Home Improvement Show in Fresno. Their display was next to a well-known competitor, and on comparing similar buildings I saw material and workmanship which was far superior and attractive. I have had three buildings built by Golden State and found the workmen polite, well-skilled and very efficient. They arrived at a clean job site and left a very clean job site when finished. For the money, no better value or quality can be had. I highly recommend this company for their building skills as they are craftsmen who actually take pride in doing a good job. – Mike Madera

Why You Should Consider A Chicken Coop

Why You Should Consider A Chicken Coop

When you make the decision to start raising chickens, the most important first step is providing them with a safe environment to live in. The right chicken coop allows your chickens to feel secure and comfortable, while also protecting them from bad weather, predators, and unwanted diseases.

Protection From Bad Weather

Although chickens are one of the creatures that can stand colder temperatures, it doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t have a sheltered area to run to when the weather is unbearable. You’ll want to make sure that your coop has the proper insulation to keep it warm in the wintertime, but will also want to make sure it has the proper ventilation so that it will prevent moisture from building up.

Protection From Predators

Weather is definitely one of the key reasons why you should provide your chickens with a safe home to sleep, but it isn’t the only reason. These particular creatures have a large variety of natural predators that will come into your yard and attack them. Larger animals such as hawks, foxes, dogs, and some cats will most likely hunt your chickens. However, snakes and other rodents will be after their eggs. Providing your chickens with an elevated coop will keep your flock feeling safe and secure overnight when predators come searching your yard.

A Place To Feel More Comfortable Laying Eggs

If you are someone who owns chickens, then you probably are reaping the benefits of natural, farm-fresh eggs. Hens need a comfortable place to lay their eggs and for that reason only, chicken coops are the solution. When considering a chicken coop, you’ll want to make sure that it is big enough to place nesting boxes in it. A general chicken coop usually contains one nesting boxes for every four hens. Line them with dry bedding, and you are good to go.

Protection From Disease

Just like humans, chickens like living in clean home environments. When you provide your chickens with a chicken coop that is well maintained, you will be helping your chickens remain healthy. Changing out the bedding and creating a regular cleaning routine for the coop will indeed prevent your chickens from living with unwanted pests, diseases, and odors.

Buying A Chicken Coop At Golden State Buildings

When you shop at Golden State Buildings for your chicken coop, you will have the option between our chicken hutch and our chicken ranch. The chicken hutch includes nests, 2 windows, a clean-out door, access door, chicken door, and vent door. The ranch also includes those features but can be bought in many sizes. You can view our chicken coops on our website at goldenstatebuildings.com/product-category/chicken-coop.

Why Having A Garage Is Important When Selling A Home

Why Having A Garage Is Important When Selling A Home

It’s important to remember that garages serve many purposes other than just providing a sheltered area for your vehicles. Thus, having a garage can be a determining factor for individuals looking at buying your home. People love using garages for extra storage, cars, recreational rooms, other hobbies, and sometimes as a converted living space. That is why having a garage is considered an important investment for later on if you decide to sell your home. 

Garages Are A Solid Investment

According to Remodeling Magazine, a garage remodel can expect to see a 74% return on investment. With that being said, potential buyers are definitely looking to see if this extra square footage is included at the home they are looking at purchasing. 

Although many newer homes include garages, what should you do if the home you are wanting to sell is older and doesn’t have a garage to go with it? We recommend ordering a custom garage from Golden State Buildings. Adding a garage to your home is considered an investment that will not only add value to your home, but you will more than likely be able to recuperate the costs in the asking price. 

Curious How To Order From Golden State Buildings? 

The great thing about ordering a custom garage from Golden State Buildings is that they will walk you through the building plan and give you a quote on the project. The garage includes the plans, permits and permit fees, and a limited lifetime warranty on the roof. The actual building includes a 4” concrete pad, 8’ smart panel siding walls, 12” overhang, a garage door, 36” steel entry door, and all materials and labor. 

Golden State Buildings Offers Add-On Options

Golden State Buildings wants you to be satisfied with your garage. If you would like to make any additional add-ons, their company would be happy to do so. They offer 9’ walls and 10’ walls, and they can be up to 16 feet wide. You can also add on additional doors, windows, paint, electrical, plumbing, insulation, drywall, and custom siding such as SmartLap HardiPlank & Stucco. 

How To Contact Golden State Buildings

They are located at 16178 E. Kings Canyon in Sanger, CA 93657. You can call them at (559) 351-1626 or email them at info@goldenstatebuildings.com for more information.

Why You Should Consider A Rent-to-Own Shed For Your Storage

Why You Should Consider A Rent-to-Own Shed For Your Storage

Are you paying storage fees every month? Isn’t it a hassle to have to load your vehicle up with all your storage, drive to the storage facility, unload, possibly reload, and then drive home? If you are tired of this inconvenience, you should consider a rent-to-own option that would include a shed for storage placed right in your backyard. Let’s talk about convenience.

At Golden State Buildings, it is our goal to exceed the expectations of our customers on every building. Our sheds are engineered to withstand the elements and to stand up to the test of time. To accomplish that end, we use wood that is a renewable resource with centuries of proven performance, unmatched strength, and unbeatable beauty.

Dog Shed: Why You Should Consider Investing In One

Doghouses: Why You Should Consider Investing In One

We know that caring for our pets is one of the top priorities in most of our lives as pet owners. That is why we recommenced providing your dog with an outdoor space that makes him feel both safe and comfortable while visiting the outdoors. If you are someone who doesn’t have a fenced-in yard and finds it hard to walk your dog every time they feel like going out, a doghouse might be the solution for you. This would allow you to balance indoor and outdoor time for your dog’s daily activities.

In The Summer:

Having a dog shed in the summer is great for those days when the sun is hitting down hard. Your kennel will have a roof over it to protect your dog from direct sunlight, and your dog will also have the option to go in the small bed area if he or she feels like taking a nap. This also protects your dog if it is raining outside as well. Overall, your dog will get fresh air and still be able to explore the outdoors without having free rein of your backyard.

In The Winter:

Although a dog shed is not recommended for use throughout the winter time, it can be a helpful way for your dog to get some fresh air after being cooped up inside all day before being brought back into your warm home. It’s a great way to be able to monitor your dog while he or she uses the restroom or exerts some built-up energy, but should not be used for leaving your dog in the snow for extended periods of time.

Contact Us

At Golden State Buildings, we offer four different styled dog homes that range in sizes. You can choose from a dog cabin, mansion, barn, or ranch. You may also view a gallery of our animal sheds on our website. If you have any questions about the materials we use, the sizes, or prices, we recommend utilizing our live chat feature or requesting a quote. You may also call us at (559) 351-1626.
