Your shed needs to reflect your needs and your preferences. Cookie cutter sheds made of particle board may be less expensive, but they seldom stand up to constant use. More often than not, they’ll also need to be replaced after a very short time. At Buildings R Us, we do things differently. Our local company offers a wide array of Amish-built sheds and storage buildings that will stand up to the test of time. Whether you need a vinyl barn, smart shed, treated wood building, or something different for your utility needs, we have the artisan resources to hand fabricate a strong durable building to perfectly match your specifications. Buildings R Us has a reputation for superior storage sheds, and we invite you to browse our inventory to find the one that’s right for you:
Premium quality is what you need when it comes to garden storage. But if anything meets such demands, it’s the Keter Premier XL Resin Outdoor Storage Shed. If you’re a keen cyclist, this is the perfect choice for you. It eliminates the awkwardness that comes from packing bikes into the garage and instead gives you a consistent and confident alternative that allows you to put them away and retrieve them with total ease. .
Turn wasted space into valuable, safe and secure storage. Any configuration you may need can be designed by our engineering staff. As a manufacturer, we can accommodate pipes and low ceiling obstructions! *A surcharge may apply to counties outside of our normal delivery area. Southeastern Pennsylvania Residents please call for delivery details.
Foundation - Every structure is undoubtedly only as good as its foundation, whether it's a full-blown house or humble storage shed. When it comes to sheds, it is of the utmost importance that you install it on a leveled surface, anything besides this will result in a very weak structure. You can never go wrong with a normal cement base, or perhaps surface compacted with pea gravel.
The height of the shed is 6.5 ft tall, width 51 inches wide, 76 inches deep. Plenty of interior space for storage and enough room to walk in and out of. If you like the Manor style there is a larger 2 door version, the Manor 6×8, which costs a bit more but basically doubles its space.
In order to help us and others understand the detailed nature of your project, please include as many details as possible. For instance, if you had a pool installed, tell us the size. If you had a fence, share how many gates, the height, etc. Details are the most important part of this.

Everyone has a different opinion on what is “convenient”, so be sure to take the time to think it through. Do you recoil at the idea of looking at a shed in your backyard everyday? Or do you cringe at the thought of having to drive off-site to get to your items? Rachel Hartman is a freelance writer specializing in small business, personal finance, and lifestyle topics.

Pavers are a step up from gravel alone, and are a good value way to provide a solid base for your shed. Pavers do have to be placed on a perfectly flat and level surface in order for them to be effective.
While plastic sheds are designed to offer plenty of protection against rain, ice, and snow, they do suffer from poor wind protection.
Consider the Saltbox vinyl storage shed if you are looking for economical backyard storage with a bit more fashion and one that will require very little maintenance.
Around the time I had begun shopping around for a new shed — right after I bought my home — I saw a story in the news about Tuff Sheds (Don’t worry… It was good news!)
Do you have friends coming in from out of town? Or a son or daughter that is wanting a bit of their own space? Our sheds can be finished out to make a great bedroom for that special loved one — giving them their own private space while still keeping them close.
Do you need a storage shed for tools, garden accessories, family heirlooms, crafting supplies, collectibles, farm/livestock purposes, or just general “life overflow”? Do you need a safe storage space for your ATV, motorcycle, or mower? Do you need a “man cave,” “she shed,” or extra home office space? No matter the reason for your purchase now, as your needs shift or change over time, the functionality of the shed can also easily change. Your storage space. Your choices. Your current and future needs, met. Start designing your custom pre-built storage sheds, storage barns, wood garages, or playhouses today.
Paints that can be used on a variety of surfaces – from plastic to aluminum – are called “multi-surface” paints. Generally, these paints are self-priming, which means that you don’t need to go the extra step and buy primer.
Every part of a plastic shed is designed for a purpose. Take for example the traditional outside look, it is no mistake it is to keep the HOA or council happy. The included plastic floor allows easy cleaning, and the windows and light colored interior keeps the shed from being dark and dingy.
If you end up making your own, double check where you are fixing has enough support to hold what you want.
The only caveat to the whole “can you paint plastic” question is resin. Some resin sheds just can’t be painted. Call your shed manufacturer to find out. Or you can get a small amount of primer and paint and test it out on a hidden spot.
