Before Installing Storage Units: Building Codes and the Like - Become acquainted with zoning ordinances, deed restrictions and building codes. Depending on your area, you may need a building permit. Building codes may determine how far storage units must set back from property lines and what materials are acceptable for siding.
Price vs. Quality in Outdoor Storage Sheds - Don't let the price of outdoor storage sheds be the determining factor for you. Some shoppers, once drawn to the cheapest price, immediately thereafter put blinders on and ignore alternatives. Outdoor storage sheds sided with cedar and vinyl (the highest quality sidings) are only a few hundred dollars more than outbuildings sided with lower-quality materials. Consider how much those few hundred dollars are buying before rejecting the cedar or vinyl.
