I want to change the
pace a little bit in this article. Instead of just
talking about shed plans or gazebo plans or whatever, I just
want to talk a little bit about Wood Sheds by themselves.
Now what is a Wood Shed really
good for, other than taking someone out behind it?
Well, other than storing your lawn tractor and tools, it is
a great way to store just about anything that you don't have
room for in your garage. Tools, holiday decorations,
excess building material from your last renovation project,
bicycles, garbage cans, anything you can imagine.
There is also something
special about a hand built wood shed that you don't get from
a plastic little shed you buy at Lowe's or Home Depot.
When I walk over into someone's backyard, and they have a
prefab plastic shed, it screams "yuppie". When I go to
someone's house and they have a hand built wood shed that
they built themselves in their backyard, it screams
"craftsman" or "stud".
Wood Sheds are just
special. There's something just historically nostalgic
about building your own structure. It takes us back to
our roots in mankind, when a man used to build his own
shelter. Nowadays, I don't know too many people who
have the ability to build their own house, but a shed, is
well within reach of most people, and there is just
something special about it.
The other thing I love about
building a shed is that is such a great project for a father and
son to undertake. Just think of all the things you can
teach your boy, and bond at the same time, when you build a shed
together. Every time you go out in your backyard and look
at that shed, you will memories that forever take you back to
that experience. Your boy could be away at college and
moved out, but when you go out and see that shed, you will
remember that time you spent together. And when he comes
back to visit as an adult, you and him can go out there and
share a few beers as adults and he will have memories he will
cherish for a lifetime.
So, with all that in mind, those are
just some of the reasons I carry on about shed plans and have
made this site. I think we have a great product to offer.
I've spent thousands of hours putting all this together,
designing sheds, marketing them, and selling them. And if
I can put some memories together for a father and son to carry
with them, then all the better.
