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!

This was my second shed that I bought from you,
I'm as happy with it as I was the first one. Great space
Well built! Love it!

Kim from Congers New York

The process could not have been any easier to get our shed ordered- super fast turn around time, expert delivery and install in our backyard (the driver had a yard slope AND well access obstacle to mitigate). Everyone that comes over immediately remarks on the shed and how amazing it looks- we highly recommend sheds unlimited to anyone who asks!

exceeded our expectations and is an enhancement to our backyard. thanks

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

The process was very easy and everyone was helpful and professional. The delivery driver was great and I was impressed by how easy he made it look to move a huge shed onto the shed pad. I will use Sheds Unlimited again!!!

Alex Rota from Pottstown, PA

I searched all over Long Island for a quality backyard shed for a good price, but I had to go to Pennsylvania to find what I needed. Nobody compares to Sheds Unlimited. Not only are they professional and courteous, they responded to my many questions within hours and helped me get the price to where I needed it. The delivery and installation of the shed was flawless with a very experienced installer. Sheds Unlimited has no limits!

Kevin Omland from Oyster Bay, NY

We ordered a shed built to our exact specifications to match an existing building on the property. Took a few weeks and several phone calls both ways to confirm the order and details but what was delivered was exactly what we were hoping for and at the price quoted to the penny.
If you are looking for a custom shed....start here.

Atlantic Security INC from Chestertown Md

I ordered a 28X50 garage with 12' walls and a full attic with vinyl siding to match my house. Six weeks after ordering, right on schedule, three guys showed up with a single truck and trailer that had all the materials on it. They built the entire building in TWO days start to finish, and after they left I barely found a dustpan of debris. They were extremely fast, professional, very friendly and the building is the same quality as any stick-built, if not better. Shingles and siding are all straight as an arrow, I can't find a single error anywhere. It's pointless to hassle with local contractors, just call these folks and have a nice day.

Bill R. from White Haven

Contacted Ben Shue to custom design a pool house. We had limitations because of the local  codes. Ben worked with us amd designed exactly what we wanted. He was very professional and helpful. The pool hosue looks great and was very well built . Execellent job and the enitire process was handled very well and was on time. Thank you.

Dave from Avalon NJ

We ordered a great quality shed from Sheds Unlimited. Not only was it the best price (after checking ~5 places) it is built to last!
