12x20 Modern Shed

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?

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.

How much does a 12x20 shed cost?

Our standard economy 12x20 workshop shed is our cheapest option for this sized shed and starts at $3,346. We have other options of styles and designs for a 12x20 outdoor shed and their prices below:

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.

Cannot say enough how easy it was to deal with Mark and the crew. My calls were met with a friendly voice and everything that was promised was delivered. The shed is great, Nate the driver was great and it was just refreshing not only to be treated the way I was but to receive the friendliness & professionalism from a super bunch of people.

We were very pleased with the people and experience at Sheds Unlimited. They were very easy to get along with and delivered us a beautiful shed with low impact on our property. Highly recommended.

Michelle Kelley from Doylestown, PA

Thank you Shed's Unlimited!

I found you by doing research on the internet and boy am I glad I did. The quality of my shed is very impressive. We have a problem with wood burrowing bees here and there is not one inch of exposed wood on the whole shed. I am sorry winter is approaching because I have big plans to turn this shed into my work room. Your prices are very fair compared to what you get at the big box home supply stores. My only regret is that I did not get my shed slightly bigger. Thanks again guys, I am very happy and I am recommending you to my neighbors.

James Stokes from Fayetteville nc

Wonderful, professional company with outstanding customer service and a really good product. I don't often have a purchase experience this positive! Highly recommended. 

Kim T from Wayne, PA

Very pleased with the Shed! Very quick turnaround on the custom shed I ordered. Came exactly as requested and the standard materials are very good quality. The shelf and ramp I added are top notch. Shed comes with locks and keys as well!

The mule made delivery very easy, as there is no way a truck would have made it into our yard. Shane, who delivered the shed, was great and even advised be to trim back a bush so it didn't scratch the paint on the shed!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone.

Jeff Zamorski from West Chester, PA

Great, great,great job. From the time we walked the extensive invintory on the lot to the clean up after our shed was installed. Couldn’t have went smoother. The communication thru the process was spot on. The 3 young men that installed my shed couldn’t have been nicer or worked any smarter. Couldn’t be anymore satisfied. Thank you so much

Thank you very much for delivery of the first of three sheds today.

The shed is oustnading; even better than the excelelnt product we anticpated !

The whole experience has been outstanding:

- your service in helping us design exactly what we needed, over many minor changes on our part, was truly superb: Professional, patient, presistent, and precise.

- the delivery person who brought the shed and installed it was truly outstanding: Focusd , courteous, skilled, and careful (RARE combination these days!) we would welcome this same installation person tomorrow as well as he was VERY careful and considerate of the property, trees, plants, etc...even carefully navigating around bushes inches from the shed site.

- the final product is excellent. high quality, visually beatiful and really a complement to our house.

We look forward to receiving the remaining two sheds tomorrow.

Please feel free to post these comments anywhere you would like.

Working with High Point Buildings was a pleasure from beginning to end.  The salesperson,  Donna, was knowledgeable and courteous . We had to have our shed built on site and the two men who did the job were efficient and friendly.  We would definitely recommend this company.
