Before you settle on putting some simple shack in your property, consider the fact that you can customize garages and sheds to suit your taste and need. You can incorporate your idea into various shed designs that you can see online, which can serve multiple purposes. Shed builders can offer digital shed designs too to widen your options.
Garages are basically for storing vehicles on your property. They usually have wide doors that open upwards. They could be gigantic that they can house two or more vehicles, or it can only be a small space for a single car. But why is having a second garage useful? You do not know if you will have another vehicle or a useful van in the future. While waiting for it, you can use the shed as a warehouse for things that you can no longer accommodate in your house. Furthermore, an extra garage serves as an excellent workspace for projects you have in mind.
A barn is a wise storage solution for the farm. You can store a tractor inside so the shed space should be broader and higher than a standalone garage. Barns are usually customized depending on the model of the tractor. You should invest in putting up a barn if you own a farm, not just for aesthetic appeal, but it is also a glorified storage space for farming tools, equipment, and produce. A metal or steel barn can ensure you of resilience against the elements and longevity of the stored items.
If you intend to use a shed only to protect your vehicle with a roof, a carport is more economical than a garage. Carports are just roofs without walls. But if you want a shed for the house in other tools and equipment, you could settle for a garage. Other people wish to enclose garages and sheds with locks for extra protection against thieves.
Garage with Carport
For vehicle owners with a lenient budget, a garage with an attached carport is also an option. Your guests can use your carport while your car is in the garage. Furthermore, some people would park their vehicles in a garage at the end of the day; they like their cars hanging around in the carport in case of immediate use.
A bungalow is a building with a slanted roof. It can be wood or steel. You may want to have windows or a standard house door installed on it. You can customize a bungalow according to your need – can be a garage, a small warehouse, or an industrial workplace.
A cabana is an adorable mini structure (especially if you are in coastal areas) with a pointed roof that evokes a tropical island feel. Cabanas are multi-purpose structures, but typically, they are for leisure activities. It can be a place where you can dine and drink with friends, have karaoke parties, or just a place to relax outside your house. Cabana is an excellent recreation room or a living space next to your home.
This building resembles a motel in structure, and in functionality acts a beautiful standalone bedroom. If you have constant visitors, a country inn is a lovely guest bedroom. Country inns are small sheds that often have a porch space, with finished floors and walls, and some furniture.
Whatever shed you decide on, there are custom house kits available online. Let your builders know what design you have in mind, and they can also customise the perfect shed that will suit your taste and is right for your space and circumstances.
