One of the biggest improvements for me is that I have so much more head room inside the Tuff Shed: My old shed is about 6 feet tall at its center — my height exactly. Its side walls are only about 5 feet tall, so I’ve had to do a lot of crouching to get around on the inside of my old shed. My new Tuff Shed has a 6’2″ door, 7-foot-tall side walls, and a roof peak over 9 feet tall — so it’s just the right size for me.
If you don’t have a nice neighbor getting rid of their old fencing check on Craig’s List or at your nearest Habit ReStore.

Drill pocket holes into both ends of two 53″ 2×4 studs. (Alternatively, you could just drive the screws in at an angle since they will be on the underside of your supports.) Secure these two 2×4’s to the 4×4 posts at 47″ from the ground.
If you’re a gardener, you’ll understand exactly how garden equipment, supplies and general stuff have a tendency to rapidly accumulate. It appears that most of us start out with just the basics, but before you know what, we all seem to end up with a vast collection of tools, pots, old toys, and all manner of random stuff that often threatens to overwhelm even our best outdoor sheds.
From 1999 to 2001 there was a period of tremendous growth for the business. Several additional product lines were added and delivery/setup services were expanded.
Very happy with my split shed with the additional storage space that the lofts provide. 8x14 footprint and two 5x7 bonus spaces in the lofts. This is the 4th shed I've bought from Mitch and always good service and quality construction. As a builder I would have a hard time stick building and purchasing the materials for the price I get a delivered shed from Mitch. Gary Strassler 2 years ago
We've had a fantastic experience working w/ Recreation Unlimited.! Our hot tub was ready ahead of schedule! The installers arrived first thing in the morning. Very professional. Spent extra time to make sure landscaping wasn't disturbed. Setup and training were also outstanding. Very happy customer.
Build your own long lasting shed to save hundreds of dollars on durable, weather-tight protection for your belongings.
In the past, the best way to find a storage facility was to either look in the phone book or simply drive around until you found one. Today, the best way to find cheap storage is through an online self-storage marketplace like SpareFoot.
In order to give your shed a nice appearance, as well as to protect the walls from rot, you should install a 10” front and a back overhang. Therefore, secure a truss to the exterior of the shed to the inner rafters, using 3 1/2″ wood screws. Afterwards, fit the end rafters to the roof, using 2×4 blockings and 3” screws. Pre-drill pilot holes in the end rafters, to prevent the wood from splitting.
SpareFoot is the largest marketplace for finding and reserving a self-storage unit. For more than a decade, SpareFoot has helped consumers get the best deals on self-storage by making it easy to find a storage unit at the lowest price.
