Creating A Haven with Sheds and Garages in Farmingdale, NJ

Retired Couple in Farmingdale, NJ Created a Haven for Themselves

Building The Perfect Retirement Home

When Robert and Carol Gleason started looking for a retirement home, they knew they had to get it right. Their eyes were drawn to an old, abandoned property on Main St. in Farmingdale, NJ.

The property had been owned by a medical doctor and his wife. After the doctor passed away it was neglected and then damaged by a fire. By the time the Gleasons got their hands on it, it was in bad shape.

Since we are seniors... we would never have the ability to do this again.

Sheds Unlimited Made It Possible For The Gleasons To Pursue Their Hobbies

Carol Gleason's Art in New Jersey

After giving the house a total makeover, Robert and Carol turned their attention to the outside. Carol’s passion was centered around sculpting with clay and Robert was a restorer and collector of antique cars. Their property lacked a shed and garage that could be used to pursue their hobbies in their new home in Farmingdale. 

They began by searching the internet to find local builders of sheds and garages. That’s when they found Sheds Unlimited online. The buildings on the Sheds Unlimited website were attractive and could be customized to meet their needs. Carol was especially impressed with the hundreds of customer reviews on the Sheds Unlimited website. So they decided to visit the Sheds Unlimited location in PA to see the buildings first hand.

The Gleasons found many styles and sizes of sheds and garages to choose from on the Sheds Unlimited sales lot. They found that “the salespeople were very friendly and helpful and even gave us some samples”. After that initial visit, they decided that they didn’t need to look anywhere else. They returned to their home in Farmingdale, NJ with lots of new information and things to process.

The salespeople were very friendly and helpful and even gave us some samples!

Robert's Garage

Garage Shed For His Hobby in Farmingdale, NJ

The Gleasons checked the local building codes to find out what size buildings would be allowed on their property. One month later they returned to the Sheds Unlimited office after deciding to purchase three buildings. Their requests to have a few antique items incorporated into the building designs were readily accommodated.

The buildings they chose included a one and two-car garage that would be attached to form one building. Local township codes allowed for up to three garage spaces so this arrangement was approved. The one-car garage was built with extra high walls to accommodate the use of a car lift.

Carol Studio Created From a Shed

A Saltbox Shed For Her Hobby

The second building was an 8x10 Saltbox that Carol turned into a clay sculpting studio. She had a kiln added to the back for firing her clay projects. The shed came with most of the wiring completed and the floor insulated. Carol then installed a floating floor and hired a contractor to finish the inside.

Gleasons' Garden Shed in Farmingdale, NJ

And A Garden Shed

In the process of deciding what size buildings they need for their hobbies, the Gleasons decided that they also need a tool shed for general storage. So they ordered a 12x20 Workshop from the Premier Garden Shed collection to use for garden tool and general storage.

Preparing The Sites For Their New Sheds and Garages

After placing their order, the next step was to prepare the sites for their new buildings following local buildings codes. They found a local site preparation contractor who installed the concrete foundation and floor for the 3 car garage and gravel pads for the tool shed and clay studio. Sheds Unlimited provided specifics and drawings that were used by the foundation contractor to make sure there were no surprises on delivery day.

 

Since the Gleasons had plenty of room on their property, they decided to have the buildings installed on angles. They are very pleased with the final appearance of the sheds and the improvements to the appearance of their property. Positive comments from neighbors and inquiries about where they purchased the buildings help to assure them that they made the right decision.

The most memorable part of the experience was watching the Sheds Unlimited delivery driver unload the two smaller buildings!

Delivering The Sheds

The two smaller buildings arrived completely constructed on a long trailer. Even though the roads leading to their property on Main Street were narrow and crowded, the driver was able to bring the buildings safely to their house. The video above is not of the Gleason's Shed, but it's the same process.

The fact that the delivery driver was able to maneuver the trailer to our property was truly amazing. Not only was that a feat to behold, but it had rained heavily and the property was total mud. The driver was not disturbed in the least and proceeded to place the buildings on the foundations. His attitude was cheerful the entire time!

The Gleasons Are Very Pleased With Sheds Unlimited

After delivery the buildings were finished on the inside by a third party. The concrete garage floor was sealed and a floating floor was laid in the studio. The buildings are heated in the winter and air-conditioned in the summer.

Robert and Carol love their new buildings (and the neighbors say they look great). In their own words, “since we are seniors we are delighted with everything and know that we would never have the ability to do this again. Absolutely no regrets!”

Absolutely no regrets!

Great shed. Great price. Great service. 

Dan from Churchville PA

We received the MaxiBarn August 29, 2013 and it has been the best thing we have purchased in a number of years. It was transported to us from Gap, Pensylvania by a very professional young gentleman who knew exactly what to do to place it on the pad we provided. Nothing was disturbed on the lawn and we were very pleased with the delivery and set up procedure. It provides enough space to house my husband's lawn equipment with remaining space for other storage purposes. The maxi barn was painted per our specifications and matches the garage and house perfectly. We requested modifications for the placement of the 2 windows and doors and Sheds Unlimited was able to accomodate perfectly.
I definitely would recommend Sheds Unlimited for not only reasonableness of cost but also for their professional services and providing us with a very well built shed.

Ben G from Staten Island , NY

Such a wonderful experience from start to finish. The Sheds team took care of everything. They were extremely pleasant to work with. Delmar was so patient and knowledgeable as was James. And we were amazed at how fast and professional the crew was that built the garage on site. Highly recommend. Couldn't be happier.

Nick M. from Wyckoff, NJ

Just had my shed delivered right on time by Nate. It really looks great inside and out and I'm very happy with the end product! Thanks to Kyle and the sales team for all of their phone and email communications, advice and patience along the entire process. Will send you some pics in a few weeks once I have furnished! -Nick

Great experience from beginning to end!!! Would highly recommend them to everyone!!!

We have local places with sheds but none compared to Sheds Unlimited!!!

Kathy from Long Beach Island NJ

There is good service and there is GREAT service. Good business and GREAT business. After lots of painful research and onsite shed company visits, I stumbled across Sheds Unlimited. Boy did I/we luck-out because they are GREAT/GREAT! From David G. in the sales to Austin B. in the delivery, everyone was fantastic to work with. We live 100s of miles away and we never felt nervous giving the money down to get the project started. Brand new home, and the beautifully crafted Dutch Barn is PERFECT. the colors and style match impeccably. I will buy from them again when needed and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them without ANY reservations!

Rich Rivera from North borough MA

My experience with Sheds Unlimited was a very pleasant one.
I wanted a specific type and size shed that wasn't in their catalog,
but with a few phone calls and Emails, they were able to make the shed I wanted with all the custom things i asked for, including but not limited to multiple door placements and flooring specs. Upon delivery, the driver was very knowledgeable and professional. He made sure everything was perfect before he left. After a few weeks and filling the shed I noticed a small issue that I thought needed to be addressed. So I called Kyle and told him about the issue and he didn't hesitate to set a time up to send some one to take care of the problem. The person they sent out was also very knowledgeable. So saying all that I would recommend Sheds unlimited to anyone that is looking for any type of pre-made Sheds.

Scott from Taneytown Md

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
