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.

Chris and David constructed our shed with tremendous skill, teamwork, and attention to detail. They worked steadily for 14 hours and remained focused until the job was done. The craftsmanship of the shed itself is impressive. Sheds Unlimited is an exceptional company, and everyone with whom we have dealt demonstrated a high level of professionalism. Thank you!

David & Jessie Snyder from Allentown, PA

We custom ordered a 8x16 shed. Quality workmanship. Delivered on time. Great pricing. Friendly staff. Great experience.

I looked around at many other manufacturers and these by far where the best quality sheds. Product was delivered earlier than expected and delivered in a precise and safe manner. Highly recommend Sheds Unlimited!

Reza from Towson, MD

First, I would like to say that everyone I spoke to at Sheds Unlimited was very accommodating. I needed more space in my 2 bedroom house, and I specifically needed a workspace for my growing home business, as well as an art studio. We were looking to create an alternate building in our backyard rather than live through the nightmare of adding on to our house.

Delmar was great at working with me from the start, and ran through several different estimates with me. They did a complete interior package for my shed in knotty pine and even installed radiant electric heaters that I purchased from another company so they could be hardwired behind the paneling and not have the ugly corrugated metal wires be left visible. I also chose to add a 8'x12' loft to my 12'x22' building, and they made me a beautiful detachable ladder so it could be moved when not in use. (Although, they made it so pretty I never want to move it!) Delmar was great at making sure I got the custom building I wanted.

Delivery was nothing short of amazing. We live in a very hilly area with tight, narrow streets. The tractor trailer couldn't even turn to get up our street, so our delivery guy loaded our shed on the mule and rode it up our steep street. Then he had to deliver it on an incredibly sloped, narrow yard. I am sure we were one of the harder deliveries he's had, but he worked at it like a trooper.

I am extremely pleased with my art studio out back. The work was meticulously done and well-built. They installed closed cell insulation which has made the shed easy to warm up even in 20 degree weather. It took the utility company 3 1/2 weeks to get me power after the shed was delivered, and because the shed was so well insulated, I could actually work out there in a heavy coat and not freeze in 35-40 degree weather. I think the combination of insulation and wood paneling also acts as a good sound proofer as well. I live in a pretty urban area and feel like the shed is very quiet compared to our house - I don't hear the outside noises of doors slamming and people talking as much when I am in there.

I would highly recommend this company. For the amount of space we got, we paid a lot less than we would have if we had put on an addition to our house of a comparable size. And best yet, it only had to be delivered!

Melissa Nannen from Bala Cynwyd, PA

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.

Ryan from York, PA

We purchased a 12x20 shed right before Christmas. They promised delivery before Christmas and it happened. The shed had to be built because of restricted access to the backyard. The guys arrived on Wednesday morning and were done that day by 1 PM. We were very impressed and would buy again from such a professional group of people. What a great experience from start to finish. We couldn't find a better deal in our area.

John G. from Richmond,VA

Purchased a 10' x 16' semi-custom shed from Sheds Unlimited in the summer of 2013. Every part of the process was superb including the quality and delivery of the final product. Highly recommended.

Sascha Prochaska from Mendham, NJ

We had an excellent experience with your company. From start to finish it was an easy and uncomplicated process. We ordered a 12x20 shed, it was built and arrived just as we ordered it. Ryan was our driver and he was awesome. The new shed needed to be placed against existing decking and Ryan placed it perfectly. We are 100% satisfied and would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone needing a new shed...garage...workshop. Great value and just a really easy company to deal with  during the entire process.
