Here are some things you should consider if you are in market for a larger-sized shed:

Is a 12x20 Shed right for you?

A 12x20 outdoor storage space may be right for you. It comes with plenty of open storage space that can fit many of your backyard essentials. That being said, there are some things you should look at before purchasing the 12x20 storage shed. This may include the size of your yard, where it will be placed in your yard, and the zoning laws for your county and state.

Spacing in your yard

When deciding on which shed you need, consider the size of your yard. This is crucial because of different zoning laws for sheds, we recommend 18 inches of extra length and width, so the shed is securely placed on the foundation. You should also be aware of preventing clutter in your backyard. Having too many items without much space left will make it look less attractive.

Zoning laws may vary between states and depends on how big your shed will be. No one wants a yard with no space. Therefore, you should make sure you have that extra space to enjoy your yard without too much of a clutter.

Why get a 12x20 storage shed?

A 12x20 storage shed provides you with 240 square feet which is enough to have 2-3 lawn care machines and also space to have a workbench or a loft! The 12x20 shed is a great option if you are looking for a medium-sized storage building without breaking the bank. If you need a shed larger than 12x20, a 12x30 shed is a great option!

Optimizing your Shed

The best way to get the most out of your shed, is to plan ahead. When deciding what to put in the shed, make sure to take measurements. You can also place labels on the containers you might be storing for easier access to the things you want.

Investing in some clear; see through bins or containers is another helpful tip. You should also consider adding a few additional storage areas to your shed to ensure you get all the space you can get out of it.

12x20 Shed with loft

Include lofts or shelves with your Shed

Want to add that extra space for smaller items, while at the same time saving the floor space for much larger ones? You might want to think about adding a loft, or a shelf. Adding either a loft, or shelf can save you much more space than you think.

By placing smaller items on a shelf or placing them up onto a loft you become more versatile and instantly your shed will be more organized and spacious.

Add lighting to your Shed

You found the shed you want, now it is time to consider adding a little spark to it. With the addition of electricity to your shed, you can light up and see everything you need to see in the shed.

The electric package also comes with outlets once the electricity is installed so you can charge whatever you need! Whether you like using your shed for regulatory storage, or want to build an office inside of it, adding the electrical package will be very convenient for you.

12x20 Shed with ramp

Include an Easily Accessible Ramp

Why might you want to include a ramp to your shed? I am asking the wrong question, why would you not have a ramp for your shed? Adding a simple ramp could make your life so much easier.

 

Ramps could be used for many large, and heavy products to be loaded onto your shed. Most of the heavier stored items in a shed are lawn mowers, knowing this a ramp could help with mounting the mower inside. Anything that can be placed on wheels and able to fit in your shed makes for endless possibilities.

John Thomas from Dewey Beach, Delaware

What a great shed. They didnt skimp out on quality as many companies do where they show you the good parts but not the cheap parts. Here the shed is constucted of 2 x 4s and its built solid. I had it delivered and built on site. They built it super fast, Id say there were done in less than 3 hours. So hilarious when they showed up with the longest truck I have ever seen, probably the length of 2 buses. Great shed, I built my own loft and shelves all around, also got bikes hanging from the rafters. Beautiful paint colors. Very happy with my purchase. They did forget to paint my door but they promptly sent me some paint so I can paint it myself. Thanks Sheds Unlimited. Solid deal!!

Michael C from Manville, nj

We researched many places and options before my husband and I took a ride out to Lancaster. We went to many places including Sheds Unlimited. Their product and choices are fantastic and very reasonable including the delivery fee. But, most important to me is Customer Service. I was very impressed with Mark, he made the process so easy and comfortable. That is why we went with Sheds Unlimited. Our shed came just when Nelson promised and the delivery and placement was perfect. Even in the rain, very professional. We love our shed. Thank you to all at Sheds Unlimited.

Elaine Campbell from Woodlyn, PA

We are extremely pleased with our dealings with Sheds Unlimited. Every time we needed to change something on our pool house the staff was great dealing with the changes. An email was always sent with all the changes so we knew things were being handled properly. It began with Mark, then John, then Austin and lastly the driver who delivered our pool house. He was extra careful and looked at it from every angle to be sure it was properly placed. Kudos to you all!
