Basically anything that is alive should not be kept in storage. It's both illegal and inhumane to keep animals in a storage unit, and you won't be able to hide them from the facility managers. Plants require water and sunlight for survival so they won't last long in storage and will also be good for attracting vermin and insects. You'd think this would go without saying but while some storage facilities will allow you to have an office or workshop in your unit, you cannot start living out of it (seriously, that's illegal). .
This is where we get into heavy-duty storage needs. A 10x15 should be able to handle the contents of an entire one-bedroom house, and can even be used to store small cars and boats. Note that car storage and boat storage usually have different requirements so make sure you speak with your facility before booking a unit for that purpose.
The floors in both the Tuff Sheds and the Heartland Sheds seem roughly equivalent to me. Heartland Sheds places their studs 24 inches apart in the models I looked at. Tuff Shed spaces their studs just 16 inches apart.
If your garage is overflowing with garden tools and supplies, it's time to add a garden shed to your backyard to organize your equipment.
Afterwards, you should attach the plywood flooring of outdoor shed, as in the image. Place the 4×8′ plywood sheets (3/4” thick) on the joists and secure them to the joists with 2” nails, every 6”. If the corners of the frame are right-angled, the sheets should overlap perfectly.

If you’re deciding between building your own backyard shed and hiring a builder, you should know it is cheaper to build your own shed. The exact cost difference depends on builders’ labor rates in your area. When you hire a professional builder, you must pay for labor and materials. When you choose to build the shed yourself, you only have to pay for the cost of the materials and tools. Here are the most common shed building price scenarios: 10′ x 10′ shed ~ $2200 10′ x 12′ shed ~ $2700 12′ x 12′ shed ~ $3200 12′ x 20′ shed ~ $5200
Although it is cheaper to build your own utility shed, buying the shed is better bang for your buck. This is because the quality of a professionally built shed will be higher than a kit; shed builders buy in bulk, which saves money. Other things to take into consideration are your time and the hassle of trying to build one yourself. By purchasing through a quality-built shed company you can spend your time elsewhere and save yourself a hassle, while getting top-notch quality!

Cut one end of fourteen 5/8″ x 5″ boards at a 22.5˚ angle. Then line up and mark the other end against your structure. For a clean look, allow 5/8″ to overlap the back of the structure to hide the ends of the back cladding. (I suggest measuring and cutting your angled 5/8″ boards as you go. I have a 1/2″ variance in width along my sides.)
