We've bought several sheds over the years, all from Ulrich. We've been very pleased. Pier and beam, partially built off site, and finished on site. Windows, double doors, ramps, etc. all customized to some extent.

I agree that the size of shed you are looking at is not really useful for storage. If I had to install again, I would go for an 8'x15'


Where are you putting the shed? Over concrete or is it ground? I built a plywood platform using 2"x8" sitting on cement block. My shed is raised about 10" off the ground.
I could build a Helluva shed at the cost of that one!- of course it is My Labor.

Arrgh! They tore down the shed I built in Vermont over forty years ago! Looked on Google maps to see if it was still there and some yuppie built the house out. It was about 12' x 24' using rough-cut oak 2x4 framing and masonite siding. Cost at the time was about $300. It was there five years ago, a friend took photos of it.

At our old house (it was in a mobile home park) - the people we sold the house to lost the house (assume foreclosure) about 3 years after we sold it to them. So, the park had the house towed out for failure to pay rent, etc..

Ironically, the shed still stands, as does the patio we built, as do the planter boxes we built framing out the shed.

I wanted to buy a plastic one, 6 x 8, or so first. However, the village engineer didn't want to grant me a permit - plastic sheds are banned due to the strong winds here in IL (?).
We ended up with a manufactured shed from Lowe's, installation included. It is made from the particle board panels, and has a warranty for 15 years.
It is large enough, and looks real good.

I have this one, bought when Costco put it on sale. Kit to build, easy. Attractive and roomy. It's wood and very solid, it could easily be an office or an AirBnB rental. Have it on concrete block/boards/platform off the ground. Unchanged after 4 years.

At that price I can build one with a loft!

I recently got this 7'x7.5 wood/plastic composite one. Went up easy on a base of crushed rock 4" deep. Looks great on our small new construction lot. Holds the lawn equipment, seasonal decorations and other such storage well.
