The Top 10 Best 6×6 Sheds

6x6 shed

Because every yard needs a shed…

Even a small yard, that’s why they created the 6x6 shed.

You can get your wheelbarrow, ladder, garden equipment and push mower in there. This is A LOT OF EQUIPMENT for a little shed.

We find it strange how even small yards still require the same amount of equipment to maintain them as large ones do. But the 6x6 HAS THE CAPACITY to do both, saving space whilst creating more of it.

And to MAKE YOUR SEARCH EASIER for this super shed, we've stuck all the best ones in the same place... Enjoy

The good thing about wood is that it is easily customizable; you can paint it, let it grey off or lacquer it if you wish. The shingles AREN’T included so you can customize the look of the roof too.

Although it doesn’t look amazing, it’s not looks why we call this shed the hardhat of sheds. It’s because this shed is though, dependable and will still stand up to rough treatment.

And with the durability, comes no maintenance issues. No painting, worrying about rot or rust. This makes it a true set and forget shed. Assemble and install it properly, then benefit for years to come.

Strong and durable Requires a base/floor

 

Arrow Hamlet Shed

The Hamlet by Arrow

An economical solution

If you’re after storage space on a budget, then you can’t go past a metal shed. Not only are they cheap, but they keep the weather out just like a more expensive sheds does.

Metal sheds are also known for lasting. Older metal sheds tend to rust and dint, and although metal sheds are still prone to these, newer models have a better resistance to rust and corrosion.

If your sitting on the fence about metal, then this one comes with a 12 year limited warranty. So at least you know the manufacturer is willing to back their product.

Overall:

This shed is a great economical solution, even though it does require a foundation (added extra.) See the exact price, here.

PROS CONS
Economical Requires some added extras

Aspen Cedar Shake Shed KitGreenstone Aspen Shed

For the traditionalists

The shed has a traditional look, which is only enhanced by the cedar siding and large framed doors. We like cedar sheds because they give a beautiful and natural look. This shed is no exception.

That traditional know how is visible throughout the design with a large roof overhang the whole way around the shed. Shifting excess water away from the base.

At first glance you can see a very square shed, which includes a square window that lets the natural light flow in, in case you did want work in this shed.

Unlike plastic or metal sheds, cedar is a renewable resource which helps the environment. It also helps the economy because its made in the USA.

Overall:

A great looking shed for a fair price. See how much here.

PROS CONS
Traditional looking shed A little square
Overhang keeps water away Sits high off the ground

The new centerpiece for your garden

This unique shed gets attention, from any angle. Its as pretty as a picture, and is the perfect shed to accompany your yard, but also store all your garden tools.

A temporary solution

Sometimes you don’t want something permanent. Maybe you’re renting or you need to move your storage around, or you only need a seasonal solution.

Whatever the reason this steel framed, polyethylene covered shed can help. The footprint is the same, 6×6 ft, but it is cheaper and easier to setup than any of its rivals.

It does have its down sides as well. For one there is no floor, so the ground underneath the shed can get wet. It is also noisy in the wind and strong winds will eventually rip and tear at the cover.

Overall:

It’s hard to recommend or not recommend, but it is great for a portable, quick solution that will fit in the trunk of your car. See what REAL HOMEOWNERS thought of theirs here.

PROS CONS
Quick and easy assembly Items can get wet from ground
Assembles almost anywhere Fabric will eventually tear

 

Flower House XL

Walk in Storage House – XL

Temporary, temporary!

This solution is more like a tent than a shed.

It is a cost effective solution, for those in warm climates to keep the sun and light rain off. It will not hold up well against strong weather conditions.

This is a quick temporary solution to store your items. Some homeowners complain that the floor gets wet, and the fabric tears after a period of time. This can be due to snagging the fabric during assembly, or it rubbing against something.

The Walk in Storage house is nota bad solution, it’s just that it’s probably past its use by date when that starts happening.

Overall:

For these reasons we don’t recommend this as a permanent solution. Just a temporary one, for nice, calm weather. Read the reviews here.

PROS CONS
Cheap Temporary solution only
Everything included Fabric material can fray easily
