From Ponies and Carts to Amish Sheds and Garages

When my dad started Sheds Unlimited back in 1988, he had two things in mind. First, he was looking for ways to keep his five growing sons busy on the family farm in Lancaster County, PA. Second, dairy farming was not enough to support the family of seven children, and he had to find another way to keep the family fed.

The five sons living on the farm got up early morning after morning to milk the cows, feed the calves and care for the animals. During the spring, summer and fall, corn had to be planted, cared for and harvested to keep the fourth-generation family farm alive. If the crops failed, or the milk price plummeted, the ends simply would not meet.

I was the second of those five sons and while I helped milk the cows, plant the crops and feed the animals, I also loved working with my hands and creating things.

My Early Building Experience

From a young age, we learned the old-fashioned Amish and Mennonite values of hard work, honesty and business acumen. Dad taught us a lot about all this. We brothers started driving big farm tractors at 6 or 7 years of age, almost before we could reach the brakes! The story around our family is that at 9 years old my oldest brother Alphie drove the tractor, chopper and wagon and went to a neighboring farm to bring in the hay for the cows!

Dad also gave us the freedom to try our hands at other projects. We helped him fix and build things around the farm, helped Mom with repair projects at home and built things into the house. I remember building mom a pantry in the 100 year old farm house with a hidden cavity behind the pantry wall. We filled the cavity with old tattered Bibles we had accumulated over the years but would never have thrown away. They would be there in case our faith at some point would be repressed and our Bibles taken as in communist countries at the time.

Dad bought us woodworking tools that started my own interest in crafting items from wood. One of my early big projects was building the pony cart featured in this story. We had a few ponies on the farm over the years and the brothers loved driving them to the local grocery store and running errands for Mom. When the cart needed rebuilding, it was I who had the fun of taking rough cut wood and crafting a masterpiece.

How the Pony Cart Launched a Shed Business

The pony cart project did more than give me a place to learn woodworking. It launched me into a lifelong pursuit of creating things with my hands. No doubt, the cart could not handle large sheds, but we did find a way to use it to start a small business making dog boxes for some church friends who had a shed business a few miles away.

My job along with my older brother Alphie was to drive the pony cart to our friends and pick up the materials for the dog boxes. On the farm, we crafted small dog boxes from the materials and then loaded the dog boxes on the cart and delivered them back to the business to be sold.

What began with a pony cart and a few dog boxes has now grown into the nearly 40 person team of Sheds Unlimited. We take our Amish Tradition of hard work and quality products and create customized sheds and garages that serve the needs of people in the Northeastern part of the USA.

The price was the main reason I picked Sheds Unlimited to begin, and was worried that the quality might be lacking. They brought the shed early, which really helped me out, and it looks great - very sturdy.

Lowell from West Chester, PA

We just got our new 12' X 24' shed and we love it! Well constructed - great craftsmanship - and very, very attractive. Style and colors complement our home perfectly. Will be a much needed place to store items and to woodwork. Company very pleasant and professional.
And the Mule is an amazing invention!!

I have been wanting to email to compliment you and Sheds Unlimited on the job your men did building our garage. You were very accommodating and the three men you sent here were professional and courteous and represented Sheds Unlimited very well.

Thank you and please thank them again for a job well done.

We have just received our Classic Woodshop Shed and it is Beautiful!

We started our journey with Sheds Unlimited with Mark Beachey; he walked us through all the different features and price points and was extremely patient with us in our decision process. He was very helpful and knowledgeable. We finally selected the Classic Woodshop Shed and started planning for its arrival. We explained to Mark that we would be traveling and that mid September would be the best time for the Shed to be delivered. Mark stated that that would coincide with their building schedule and we should have no problems getting it delivered in that time frame. Mark was a delight to work with.

We were told in an email that Austin Beachey would be handling the coordination of the delivery and to contact him via email. This is where communication seemed to break down. We sent our email, with a picture of our completed pad, and received no response. We called, to speak to Austin, and the receptionist stated that she could not locate him. We provided our phone number and email address, and were assured that Austin would reply to our phone call. After waiting a week with no response, we called a second time and attempted to speak to Austin, but we were in the mountains and the phone signal was very weak on our end. We were able to let him know that we would send a second email with pad picture to start the delivery planning. The second email was sent, with pad picture, and we received no response. After the third email, we finally heard from Austin and received a tentative delivery date of sometime the following week or the beginning of the week after. No real date was provided. Then we waited and waited and waited. At the end of the first week we sent another email query, and this time Austin responded. He said that he had responded to our most recent communications, but the email that he sent to us with the “delivery date” had gotten stuck in his draft folder. It happens. Chalk it up to electronics. We accepted that and moved on. We were given a delivery date of Monday September 25 at 2:30. GREAT! Finally the shed would be here. Got a call Monday morning on the 25th from Austin stating that the driver was going to be delayed and it was going to be closer to 4:30 pm. No problem. Shed was going to be here at 4:30 … still no problem.

Delivery of the shed: 4:30 p.m. - no shed … 5:30 – no shed. The delivery truck finally showed up around 6:30 p.m.; two hours late. That I dealt with, BUT at 6:30 at night it was starting to get dark. By the time the one and only person that delivered the shed was able to get it off the truck and onto the Mule, it was very dark. We helped guide the driver in getting the shed from the truck to and positioned on the pad. Our lot is 300 feet deep and very dark where he had to place the shed. We had to provide lights for the driver to be able to see to put the shed on the pad. Finally got the shed on the pad and situated around 8:45 pm. Our delivery driver was great and worked very hard to get the job done. We give him 5 stars.

Keys to the shed: We do not have a key to get into the shed. The driver explained that he normally has a Master Key that will open the door and allow us access to the shed's interior to get our set of keys for the shed locks and to inspect the shed. The driver did not have a Master Key to enter the shed. He stated that he had explained this fact to Austin, but that piece of information was not provided when Austin notified us of the later than expected delivery of our shed. The driver explained that, when we called to pay for the shed, we should ask to have a key delivered to us. We’ve had the shed two days, and we have yet to enter our shed to inspect it. When I spoke to the receptionist the next morning, she stated that the company is mailing us a key and it will take about 3 days; we believe the key should have been FedEx’ed overnight.

Recommendations: Have someone personally contact (not via email) the customer regarding the pre delivery and post delivery to ensure everything is on track and all parties are kept informed. This allows all parties involved to communicate any unexpected circumstances and to solve issues before they become problems. Always have two delivery drivers. Getting the shed off of the flat bed, on to the Mule, and moved to the pad is a very impressive operation, but the process is filled with moments of danger. If the delivery driver had gotten hurt, the customer would have had no idea how to give aide … Safety above all else!

The bottom line is that we will highly recommend Shed's Unlimited to friends and family; we would go back to Shed's Unlimited to purchase another shed should we need one; and we were happy with most of the process. We acknowledge that the communication challenges could have been handled better on our end. Thank you ALL for your work in planning, building, scheduling and the delivery of our beautiful new shed.

Bob and Karen Moen from Portsmouth, VA

So far, we are very happy with the 10 X 12 Workshop shed that we purchased from Sheds Unlimited. The quality of the building materials and the specs depicted on your web site led us to order the shed online, and we received exactly what we ordered. I was particularly impressed with the professionalism and efficiency of your employees that delivered and constructed the shed. They are truly a dynamic team! I would recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone in the market for a shed. Thank you!

Ashley from Howard Beach, NY

It was a pleasure to buy a shed from a company that knows customers service. The ordering process was so EZ and the delivery was so simple with there delivery mule. Every other shed company just wanted to drop the shed in the driveway and I was responsible for getting it in the back yard for about the same price. The construction of the shed was top notch.
Thank You Sheds Unlimited, I would highly recommend you to anyone.

Monroe W. from Berlin

This is our second shed from them. It takes awhile to get a shed but it is well worth the wait. They are a quality shed with 2x4 studs on 16" centers. We get pressure treated flooring. The doors close nicely and the windows slide up and down easily. We have 2 lofts in both of the sheds and that adds a lot of extra storage. My shed also has a bench which is my work bench. It's fun to watch them unload the sheds and move them to their sites! I couldn't be happier!

Harold Delaney from S. Jersey

I had a great experience from start to finish. The customer service representative were polite, responsive and very helpful. The shed is exactly as promised and seems to be built extremely well. When I compared the pricing to local competitors, Sheds Unlimited easy beat the other's prices by $300-700 and provided better options. The delivery guy was efficient, polite and managed to sqeeze the shed up our tight driveway with ease. I highly recommend them!
