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.

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!

We are very pleased with the process. The shed is well built. The purchase and delivery was outstanding. Price was competitive as well.

Mark,

I just wanted to thank you for the pleasant experience of working with you start to finish purchasing my shed. It took me some time to finally nail down exactly what I was looking for, but taking the time I am more than pleased with my building. You always showed patience and provided me with every option possible and finally we did it! Thanks again!

Gary Ennis from Delmar, Delaware

Excellent job by everyone at Sheds Unlimited. From the design phase with Mark and Delmar to plans and scheduling with Kyle and John. Everything went exactly as planned and scheduled, which is a rarity these days. Any questions or concerns on my 24x36 oversized 3 car garage were answered within minutes not days or weeks. Craftsmanship is A+ and the crew of four workers were second to none working quickly and carefully to keep my already landscaped site prestine. Thank you guys again for a job well done!

From our initial phone contact to the final delivery, the service, quality, and communication was A-ONE. We shopped extensively for a shed in Bucks County. We then called Sheds Unlimited spoke to Kyle, who did such a great job answering our questions, we decided to take a 60 mile ride to Sheds Unlimited. We were glad we did. The ease of the sale, the no pressure approach, the excellent price, the superior quality, the efficient delivery,made the whole process enjoyable.
My recommendation: do not waste your time, go to sheds unlimited for complete satisfaction.

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. 

Romuald Bogdan from Rosedale, MD

Thanks Sheds Unlimited. My 8x10 shed is perfect. The colors matched the house perfectly. The entire process, from Q&A prior to ordering to delivery, was top notch! The shed quality is just as I expected, unlike other sheds sold online or at the "big stores", this one is solid and with quality finishing. Getting lots of compliments!

Sid Fernandez from Eastchester, NY

Great dealing with Sheds Unlimited. Visited the new site and saw the quality of work which was the same in the shed that was delivered yesterday, great. The delivery person was wonderful. Very friendly and knew what he was doing and how to get the shed in place. Dealing with Mark and Austin was so easy. They knew all the answers to the questions I had. I will deal with them if I need another shed.

A very nice experience all around. The people on the phone were very nice and most helpful. The delivery people were very polite. Getting the shed into the back yard went very smoothly. Would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone.
