Are you looking for a new storage shed for all your storing needs but also one to fit your budget? You may have just found it. A 12x20 shed could be perfect for you. This shed is great for larger items as well as storing smaller units. The best part about it, they start as low as $3,346! Would this sound like an ideal shed for you?

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

Is a 12x20 Shed right for you?

Looking for which shed best fits your wants and needs can be tough, especially a larger model like the 12x20 shed. You need to know which shed would best fit your yard while also looking prominent, but also feeling comfortable to you.

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.

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 storage shed?

When finding the right shed you may want to know what can be stored, and how much can be stored. You may want to figure out what you will be storing and then measuring those items and determining whether or not they will be able to fit in your desired shed.

How much does a 12x20 shed cost?

The pricing of this shed can vary due to the different types of material that is used to construct the shed. Such as the type of roofing you would like for your shed and also which style you may pick. A standard 12x20 shed start around $3,346.

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.

The price was the main reason I picked Sheds Unlimited to begin, and was worried that the quality might be lacking. They brought the shed early, which really helped me out, and it looks great - very sturdy.

Lowell from West Chester, PA

My shed is everything I could of ask for. I could of built my own shed but comparing the.price and the craftsmanship they know what they are doing, and I made the right choice. . The wait was worth the time as did the kids faces seeing this 8 by 16 ft house roll off the truck into our yard. As for the people I spoke to they couldn't be nicer on the phone very helpful in a timely manner never had to wait more then a few minutes. This shed will last and be part of my family for a long time. It may seem funny I said that, but to me being in my yard with my wife n kids doing little things keep us close and a family. To look up n see how nice my yard is and havering a beautiful shed sitting there just make me feel good. Can't wait to order my pool cabanner!!!

Thomas Fasano from Deer Park New York

If you get your shed or garage from anywhere else, your not gonna be happy! Sheds Unlimited is the only company that I would deal with. I had them come to my house and build me (in 3 days!) THEE most beautiful, (made to my specs) 24x32 garage with two 24' dormers upstairs. Even THEY were so impressed with their work, it's featured in their "Legacy" line of Garages. Later, I ordered an adorable Chicken Coop. I couldn't be happier! Their craftsmanship is second to none, they are on time, polite and totally professional. You will not find this from your local builder! Thank you SO much!!

Kenny Strain from NJ

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

Brian from Commack ny

We purchased a 24 x 34 legacy 3 car garage.  To say anything other than the experience being spectacular would be a lie.  From our first meeting with Mark through the final design meeting with Kyle the professionalism of the staff at Sheds Unlimited is unapparelled. Just when I didn’t think the experience could get any better, installation day started at 6:30 am on a cold rainy Thursday in October. The 3-man crew from Sheds Unlimited worked tirelessly throughout the day overcoming several small challenges including having a new set of steps made and delivered the same day.  By the end of day one the garage was under roof including the tar paper.  Day two started again at 6:30 am and by 2:00 pm the garage was completed, yard cleaned up.  I have recommended Sheds to several of my buddies to have their garages built as well.  In this day of no customer service I say hats off to the entire team at Sheds Unlimited. I have included the URL to an 11-minute time-lapse video of the garage being built. https://youtu.be/tyfLowJvU3M

Wes P from Sykesville MD

The process to customize any one of the standard designs is ingenious. Surgey was helpfull in choosing the options and placing the doors. The delivery process went better than we expected based on the tight access to the pad.

We were extremely impressed with the precision in which Ryan  manipulated the muel.

Joe from High Bridge NJ

The entire process was handled with a professional attitude that is hard to find anymore. I highly recommend Shedsunlimited for those needing a good shed.

Al Amodeo from New York

Borught this shed over the phone after viewing pictures sent via email. I do alot woodworking and I was very happy with Shed - looks great, well constructed and a great value. The deliverer (Shane I beleive) did a really great job using the shed muhle and navigating into the back yard. Took a while, but he was pesistent and finally made back. Thanks!!!

Bill from Barnegat Light, NJ

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

Our 12x16 high wall barn with loft was expertly delivered (thanks, Ryan!) and is everything we had hoped for and more.  Superior construction of the building and the state of the art equipment for delivery and expertise of the delivery person are the standout features I address in this review.  If there were a sixth star to give, Sheds Unlimited would get it!
