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 price and great service! I would recommend them to all my friends. Watching the them take the shed off the truck and put it exactly in the right place to less than 20min. was impressive. Very easy to work the people at Sheds unlimited.
Thanks,
Ken

I had an excellent experience all around from using the web site to ordering to delivery. From dealing with customer service (and all the questions I had) to the dispatcher and the final delivery guy, all of them were polite and professional. My delivery was challenging but the experience of the driver was impressive. Too bad I don't need more sheds!

Mark Fiebiger from Cranford, NJ

The best experience ever. Chose Sheds unlimited over our local guy. Easy process from ordering to delivery and setup.

Bill from Selkirk NY

After a lengthy time of looking at sheds every where , we came upon the sheds unlimited site and the possibility became a reality. We called and spoke to Steve Jr. and he worked with us to get exactly what we needed. All we had to do was prepare our site and Austin handled the rest to schedule delivery. The most magical thing of all was to see Shane remove the shed from the trailer and wheel it right to the exact site in the field where we wanted it.

Shane did tell us promptly that there was a scrape on the shed that happened during transport and the company would be calling to take care of it. The next day I spoke to Steve Jr., who kindly compensated us for the problem and sent out paint for the scrape.

We have to say, all in all, it was a pleasure doing business with such a professional company, who has such great customer service. We are very pleased with the workmanship and quality of our new shed.

We would highly recommend them!

I needed a 10x16 shed placed in my backyard where a truck would not fit for delivery.  The mule was the perfect solution. On his first delivery of the day the driver caught a low telephone wire that caused some shingle damage to my shed roof.  The very next day the company had someone at my house to make the needed repairs and the shed looks great.  Love the shed and have already given SU recommendation to neighbors.  Thanks to Sergey and Austin for making the process so easy.

Eileen from California, MD

We are very happy with the shed and the quality with which it was build. Also, your delivery guy was incredible! He had to get the shed in a tight place and he did it. Loved his attitude and his skill. Truly grateful for the quality product and service.

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
