How Can I Customize My Shed?

When choosing your shed, you can select the size, color, and type and color of roof. All garden sheds come with sidewalls – 6′ 4,″ double doors, one aluminum window (24 X 27), or two windows on lengths 16′ & greater. Once you own your shed, the customization options are nearly endless. Wooden sheds are ideal for customization projects, such as adding shelves, hooks, pegboards, workbenches, and more!

How Do I Know If A Garden Shed Is Right For Me?

Lofted Garden Barn Shed

Garden sheds are highly versatile buildings and can be used for almost anything! You may decide garden shed is right for you if need extra storage space (your garage or attic are cluttered, disorganized, or running out of room), you need to store outdoor tools and equipment, or if you do not have a garage.

To determine if a garden shed is right for you, you should consider your budget, your needs and preferences, and what as well as how many items you plan to store in your new shed. You can also contact the experts at Dutch Country Sheds, and we’ll help you find the perfect portable storage build for you and your home!

Can I Turn My Shed Into A Workshop?

Of course! Most wooden sheds are easy to convert into a partial or full workshop. The large window(s) on our garden shed model are ideal for letting in the perfect amount of sunlight so you can get all your handiwork done inside your own beautiful backyard workshop. Some homeowners get even more creative with their garden sheds, transforming them into art rooms, “she-sheds,” or exercise studios.

What Is The Life Expectancy Of A Garden Shed?

The life expectancy of any shed or portable building depends on the type of materials used, the quality of materials used, and the quality of handiwork. Wooden sheds last longer than other shed types (plastic or metal). At Dutch Country Sheds, our high-quality craftsmanship and materials used to ensure that your shed was built to last a lifetime.

Do Wooden Sheds Require Any Maintenance?

A wooden garden shed, like all wooden buildings, do require regular maintenance in order to keep them in great shape as time goes on. Though maintenance is required, regular maintenance ensures you only have to do a little at a time. Some maintenance tips include protecting the wood by keeping it clean, checking on windows and doors for any potential warping, and fixing and cracks in the roof immediately before leaks occur.
