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 one of the best decisions I made was to have a shed built by Shedsunlimited. Everything went smooth, and the shed was built on site and it turned out just great. Neighbors stop by and comment how great it looks and how it compliments our home and property. The workers were hard working and hardly stopped at all until it was finished. They cleaned up all the debris and painted the nail holes and touched up where needed. If you are looking for a quality shed or garage look no further than SHEDSUNLIMITED, and believe me I am a critical person and I was amazed at the end result.

Robert Yerke from Milford, DE.

The folks at sheds unlimited are the very best. I talked to them several times before ordering, and they answered every question, and then some. I live in a neighborhood with an association, and need to have all building plans approved. Sheds unlimited provided me with color samples, and a drawing. I made many changes in the workshop, moving the doors to the end, left the shutters off, added window boxes, and added one foot to the height of the walls to accommodate our golf cart.
We live as far south on the eastern shore of Virginia. Our shed arrived on time, and was built exactly as promised. The driver was courteous, and operated the "mule" without any effort. He placed the shed exactly on my marks, leveled the shed, and insured the doors would open properly.
I would, and have recommended Sheds Unlimited to my friends, and would buy from them again.
In this day, and age there is a lot to be said for integrity, and Sheds unlimited certainly has that!!

you guys are the best!

everyone on the phone was great in helping us pick out the right shed and worked with us through a couple changes.

you were significantly less expensive than our local 'discount' shed stores.

your installer was super nice and nestled the shed right into a pretty tight spot in the backyard.

the shed is great and we could not have asked for a better experience.

thanks again,

- Paul

Overall a wonderful experience. Best price, best service and even a great recommendation for someone to build the pad! We could not be happier! You will be my choice and recommendation to anyone for a shed in the future. It is hard to find a real family owned customer service business anymore like yours! Thank you so much!

Dee from .Norriton P

I put in my order and a few weeks later we have our lovely barn delivered in our backyard. The service was beyond excellent, they listened to my needs and specs and give me exactly what I asked for. I could not have gotten a shed of this size and value from third party seller. So, I encourage you to contact them for your next shed.

Thank you again for the wonderful service I received.

We purchased a 12x8 gambrel roof shed with a loft, it was delivered Dec 1,2016 and we love it , the delivery man was great I couldn't believe how easy he made it look taking the shed off the trailer with a tiny tractor and placing the shed in my backyard. The shed is very well built (2x4's) and I couldn't come close to the price I paid in Penn. around in long island. The whole buying experience was wonderful and would buy again from these professional people.

roger sokenis from hicksville, new york

We absolutely love our shed! All our neighbors have even commented on how nice it looks. We have been in many different sheds at family and friends places and at sales centers for sheds and hands down this shed is constructed better than others we have seen. Very happy and would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited!
