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.

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.

If there were more stars I would add them to the review. Can't say enough about the process from the first phone call to the exciting delivery day. No pressure sales, extremely patient and helpful throughout the entire process. I left no question unturned and they answered each one patiently and professionally. The quality of the shed so far out shined the local shed makers, there was no comparison. I researched them all...save yourself some time and go straight to Sheds Unlimited!!

Sheds unlimited was a pleasure to deal with. All my questions were answered promptly by e-mail or phone call which is very rare these days. We were very pleased with the quality of the shed and the expertise of the gentleman working the mule to install it.

Alisa fonti from Branchburg,nj

First class all around. Great flexibility with options; we were able to match roof, trim and siding to our house. Great craftmanship and very professional staff. Crew that built our garage onsite did it in 13 hours straight with really no stopping. Worked well with our cement contractor and the county inspectors. Prices were much better than I expected.

Gary from Alexandria, VA

I needed a new shed to replace my old metal one that was destroyed by hurricane Sandy. Going to the local building stores they wanted a lot of money for shed that didn't look like it was constructed very well. I began looking on line for an 8 x 12 shed and came across Sheds Unlimited and am VERY happy I did! They were extremely pleasant to work with and they answered my every question regarding placement and delivery.....I knew I was going to get a quality built shed. It was delivered on time without a scratch and the young man who delivered worked very hard squeezing it between my garage and my fence to get it into my yard! I highly recommend Sheds Unlimited for anyone considering a new shed!

keith mackjabee from Parsonsburg Mayland

Extremely pleased with my shed purchase. Appearance and quality are excellent. The price was good. Service was excellent. Very professional and courteous. Delivery was on time,done quickly and accurately. I'm glad I chose Sheds Unlimited for my purchase. Highly recommend them!

Marina Radley from Manahawkin N.J.

We are extremely pleased with our shed. The quality and workmanship is outstanding. Our shed was 12 x 16 and had to be transported 300 miles to our home. The shed arrived as scheduled and there was some buckling of the siding from the wind. The deliver men set the shed in the exact spot we wanted it and proceeded to strip the siding from the damaged side and re-attached the siding to tighten it. They then proceeded to clean off the siding and test the garage door installed on the shed for correct operation. I would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited for workmanship and friendliness of staff. We are quite satisfied with our shed.

Robert Breitinger from Elkins, WV

After being told by another vendor that because I had a Belgium Blocks around the driveway I would have to do a build on site at 25% increase I luckily found sheds unlimited. It took 6 weeks to get my delivery, but it worth it, the 12' x 20' shed is almost perfection! It came with missing shudders on one side but they offered me credit off the amount due or for them to ship them to me. The design process is no nonsense, there is no salesmanship involved, you get what you ask for, the delivery is easy. I highly recommend sheds unlimited!
