What is a Shed?

A shed is a simple, usually single-story structure generally located in a garden or backyard that is used for storage, hobbies, or as a workshop. The New Oxford American Dictionary defines a shed as “a simple roofed structure, typically made of wood or metal, used as a storage space, a shelter for animals, or a workshop”.

Sheds vary considerably in the sizes, building material, and complexity of construction. From small open-sided structures such as a lean to, to large wood-framed sheds complete with shingle roofs, locking doors, windows, and electrical outlets.

Smaller sheds are typically used to store garden tools and equipment such as lawn mowers, lawn tractors, and gardening supplies. Sheds are also great for storing items that are not suitable for indoor storage such as gasoline, pesticides or herbicides. Shelves, hooks, and wall mounts can be added to smaller sheds to maximize storage space.

Domestic sheds are commonly constructed of wood and include features typically found in house construction such as windows, a shingled roof, and electricity. Larger sheds provide more space for hobbies such as gardening, engine repair, or other forms of tinkering. Some sheds have small porches or furniture to allow them to be used for relaxation purposes. In some cases, sheds are used as “home offices” for teleworkers, and other people that want to work from home, but have a separate office outside their home.

Sheds are completely customizable across the board to match features such as trim, siding, roofing, and design of the main home. As well as matching the home, a number of decorative features can be added such as dormers, shutters, finials, weathervanes, and flower-boxes. Practical options can also be added such as benches, ventilation systems, ramps, and electric heating and lighting. Sheds that are designed for gardening often have features such as windows, skylights, a potter’s bench for mixing soil, and ventilation grilles.

Sheds can be built to specific uses such as Gardening, Bike Storage, Boat Storage, Agricultural, Farming, Playhouses, Home Offices and much more.
