From Ponies and Carts to Amish Sheds and Garages

When my dad started Sheds Unlimited back in 1989, 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: A Pony Cart and Dog Boxes

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.

Received my shed on August 16, 2013. I dealt with Mark and John to custom build and Nelson for delivery. The shed came on time, exactly as ordered, and was expertly placed on my stone prepared site by Shane, using the Mule. As a retired housing construction specialist, I was so impressed with the finished product that I called John to express my complete satisfaction. You can not beat the price,quality or service,anywhere. You won't be disappointed.

I shopped around for a large shed. Sheds unlimited had great prices and the outstanding quality of the material used was just great. The shed is very well built. I had some special needs for my shed. The shed is a 8x24. I had them install a divider wall in the shed putting 2 double doors on one side and 1 3 foot door on the other side. They made me 4 shelves inside the bigger part of the shed. All my specifications were meet exactly as I had wanted it. The installation was something beyond belief with the mule. The way the delivery man just fit it right in the spot. I have nothing but good comments about Sheds Unlimited. They know their business and did everything just right.
My experience with Sheds Unlimited was Excellent. The shed is exactly what I ordered. Delivery was on time and the Customer Service was all excellent. I would definitely recommend Sheds Unlimited.

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.

Had a 10 by 14 built on site because I opted for a concrete pad couldn't have been more impressed at the speed and quality of the work. Arrived 15 min. before scheduled time and completed the construction and cleanup in 2hrs. 30 min. Would recommend Sheds Unlimited to any and all that want quality, courtesy, and professionalism.
John J from Emmaus PA
The web site was excellent and very easy to order and figure out the options that we wanted. The quality of our utility shed is great and it looks good in our yard. The delivery was on time and painless with the shed put just where we wanted it. The price was reasonable and competitive with other options. We're very satisfied customers.
William Broadley from Chesapeake City, MD
The shed arrived early on the day they said it would arrive. It took no time at all to set up. I waited 3 years to replace my old shed/chicken coop. My new chickens will love their new home, I sure do. Now to fill it with all my "stuff" Thanks guys. No one beats Amish built. No one..
The price of the shed was much lower than other places we checked, while the quality was much higher. The customer service was extremely helpful during the ordering process too. I would strongly recommend Sheds Unlimited - we are happy we did.

Overall experience was excellent. Website was great, ordering was very easy, delivery updates were very professional and the delivery guy was amazing with his placement of my 10x14 shed in less than 15 minutes. Everyone I spoke to was very knowledgeable, respectful, and pleasant to deal with. Could not ask for a better experience, would recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone.
