Caring for the landscape on your property requires not only a lot of hard work but plenty of tools, as well. As your tool collection grows, it can be hard to find a good place to store all those tools. You’ll want to be able to get the tools when you need them but also keep them organized and out of the way. A custom tool shed is a perfect solution to this problem, and building one is easy when you work with Carport Kingdom on the project.
Creating a custom tool shed starts with our Build & Price tool. Here you can plan and customize your shed so it includes all the features you need, such as windows, garage doors, and more. If you have any questions or want to get started, simply contact our team.
Picking the Right Spot
Placement is always important when adding a new structure to your property, but it’s perhaps even more important in the case of a tool shed. After all, the whole point of a tool shed is to have a dedicated place to keep your tools so you can use them when needed. As you search for the right spot, be sure to take measurements of your various options to determine how big the shed could be in each location. There’s nothing wrong with a small tool shed if that suits your needs, but picking a building location that would allow for a slightly larger structure would give you more versatility moving forward.
An Efficient Design
The great thing about building a custom tool shed, as opposed to one that has been designed in advance, is that you can make sure it fits all of your needs perfectly. In the planning process, make a list of all the tools and other items you hope to store in this space. You might even want to physically gather up all of that stuff to see roughly how much room will be required to store it all.
Beyond how much space you will require, also think about the shape of that space and how it can be designed to optimize efficiency. If you are going to need to drive something in, like a lawnmower, you’ll want a wide opening and plenty of floor space to park it. On the other hand, if this shed will only be for hand tools like rakes and shovels, then your shed’s design may be smaller.
While you are in the planning stages of creating a new custom tool shed, you might want to think about the possibility of expanding this project to do more than just store tools. If you have the space available on your property, building a structure that is larger than you need for storage alone will give you the option of using the space for other purposes. The marginal cost of upgrading to a bigger building will be modest, and you might find that the finished product is far more useful.
One example of how you could utilize a larger tool shed is as a potting space to prepare plants for your garden. With a big enough shed, you could add a small table where you could pot plants and do other small tasks related to your garden. This would allow you to work in an enclosed space, and organize your supplies and tools. Of course, this is just one of many ideas for how you could create a multi-purpose shed that could be a useful space for many years ahead.
Getting organized can make caring for your property seem like a much easier job. No longer will you need to wonder where you have put certain tools or worry that you might have left them out in the rain. With a smart custom design and quality construction, this new shed is something that will add value to your property for a long time to come.
