Why You Need a 10×14 Shed in Your World
You live in a busy world. One of these times you’re afraid you’ll meet yourself coming when you’re going. Being busy is fine (I guess) as long as you don’t forget the important things in life. An integral part of all this is your backyard. What better place to leave the busyness of the world behind? Have a sanctuary right on your home turf.
A nicely landscaped 10×14 shed like the one above adds to the “at home” feel. Dare I say it can even express your character, or at least your preferences? We’ll look at specific styles that may help that expression later in this blog.
Stuff is Crowding Your Space
Stuff; The bane of modern living. Gadgets. “Must have” tools. There’s yard upkeep, gardening, house repair, and other maintenance needs, not to mention the all-important recreational “tools.” One of the main ideas behind a 10×14 shed is to provide a place for some of this stuff.
Now if you have a Rolls Royce you want to store, or something with more size and substance than your zero-turn mower, you might want to look into a bigger storage shed or even a prefab one car garage. Or, maybe you’re looking to have a sports shed where you can exercise regularly. But just stuff? A 10×14 storage shed rocks.
How to Get the Most out of a 10×14 Shed
Planning ahead for 10×14 Storage Shed

See the floorplan here to get an idea of what might fit into a 10×14 shed. You can nicely fit a lawnmower or ATV along with bikes and other tools.
