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.

My husband and I shopped many places in our area for a shed-screenhouse combo, but no one built them. We were in Pa in November, and visited the shedsunlimited location in Gap. David was very helpful and gave us lots of information to look at. We got our combo last week and it was everything that we wanted. They have done an excellent job, it is great. Everyone that I spoke to during the process was very nice to deal with and the delivery person was great. We couldn't believe one person could move a 12x24 shed by himself. We would do business again with this company and would refer friends too.

It was a very good experience from start to finish! The salesman was very helpful and very professional and courteous. Delivery was great and shed is fantastic! Wouldn't hesitate to buy from Sheds Unlimited again and would recommend highly.

The shed came out better than expected. Couldn't be happier.

My custom designed 10 X 16 Classic Workshop Shed was installed today by a well trained and extremely courteous driver/installer. I could not believe only one person was able to complete the delivery. I used Bedrock Foundations recommended by them for building a level framed pressure treated 12 X 18 blue stone filled foundation then scheduled delivery. Dealing with Sheds Unlimited as well as Bedrock Foundations from start to finish should be a role model for other American companies to follow. I will definitely recommend both these companies to everyone shopping for a shed, garage, workshop of top quality construction and installation. Thank you Sheds Unlimited as finally I can put all my tools and equipment in one location.

SALVATORE GALAZZO from Danbury, CT

Good shed, good quality, but the best was the driver who managed to get my shed dropped and delivered in a tight city backyard. He was awesome.

Bob from Philadelphia

The whole experience was a pleasure! I highly recommend to everyone. They were so accommodating and a pleasure to talk to over the phone. They followed up when they said they would. The website had lots of pictures, but they would go over and above to help over the phone to find exactly what you were looking for. Everything came as expected and the delivery with the mule was so fun to watch! It had rained the day before so I was worried the grass might get torn up, but it was not an issue at all! The mule is an awesome way to deliver the shed. They are true professionals that know what they're doing and value their customers.

Jackie from Rumson,NJ

This is the second shed that I have bought from Sheds Unlimited as I have moved twice in the last 5 years. I think the quality of the workmanship, materials and ease of ordering make them a winner every time. Pricing is as good if not better than anything that you can find at Home Depot or Lowes but the quality of the product is far superior. Thanks again for a great shed and buying experience.

Custom shed is the way to go..I thought I would take advantage of a shed that was built over winter..to take advantage of the savings..not a good thing. the ridge vent was missing along with the plate across the doorway... and from being stored in the field down back all the water run-off through that area the shed was twisted the side door still is not opening the way it should. the rear 4 x 4 was hanging when it was placed on the pad and others twisted. I reported the problems and the way they talked to me this was a normal thing.. and they were fighting with the township so they could get the storage problem taken care of down back. I will have a carpenter do the repairs and install the ridge vent.. You get what you pay for. PAY THE EXTRA..I still like the shed and will get all repairs done.

Richard from Reading

I am very happy with my new garage. Sheds unlimited did a great job and were very easy & accommodating to work with. They even drew up plans for me to submit for my Building Department. Their delivery man was also amazing. The delivery arrived on time and with use of the "mule" he unloaded the large garage off the truck and set it in place with great skill. I would recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone who is looking to get a great product for a fantastic price with a quick turnaround time.
