Having easy access to the tools and materials needed to do yardwork or a minor repair can make all the difference in how fast and how well the task is performed.  To this end, a convenient and easily accessible storage shed is a must for anyone who loves working outdoors. Here are some tips on building an affordable and highly functional storage shed:

Add Lots of Access Points – Easy access means no excuses to prevent you from getting the job done quickly and efficiently.

Be Sure it is Watertight – There is no point in storing something in a shed if it is going to be ruined by rainfall and water leaks.

Make it Attractive – Most storage sheds are placed in a very visible spot in the yard, so don’t let it be an eyesore. Add details and plants to make it blend in with the rest of your landscaping.

Don’t Neglect the Foundation – A solid foundation helps keep intrusive pests and plants out. It also lengthens the usable life of the structure.
