A great quality shed, made for harsh conditions

Best Barns Northwood 10' X 10' setup

Best Barns deliver great quality, durable sheds and the Northwood is no exception.

They are not only built to withstand tough conditions, but they are tested in tough conditions.

Even the design of the Northwood is about resisting harsh weather. The unique overhang is designed to protect the doors and any windows against the harsh weather.

Our Verdict:

If you expect harsh weather then you can choose a shed that is proven to withstand those harsh conditions.

Lifetime 6433 Outdoor Storage Shed with Windows

The universal shed

Lifetime 11x11 6433 Shed openIf you are only going to own one shed, and you need it to store everything, then this will do the job nicely.

To store smaller items the Lifetime 6433 comes with a peg board and some shelving, with more shelving available as added extras.

For larger items, the high pitched roof with extra headroom and large door opening makes it easy to get ride on equipment in and out. The shed can even be extended with a kit from Lifetime which is also an added extra.

With all these options available this shed is quite adaptable to any circumstance. It also comes with all the mod cons in windows that open, a stain and impact resistant floor, a nice look and the ability to add shelving.

These options are why this shed is more expensive than others. But if you are willing to pay extra for these things, then this is an excellent shed that will suit any large yard.

Our Verdict:

A large shed. Big enough to securely hold all your garden tools and equipment, and free up your inside space. Available home delivered from Amazon.

PROSCONS
Easy assemblyDoor opening smaller than other sheds
Nice accessoriesBase not included
Made in the USA

 

Storboss Mountaineer Storage Shed

Is security important to you?

Storboss Mountaineer MHDIf your other half is ‘asking’ you to get your stuff out of the house and into a shed, then you might want something secure for your prized possessions.

If you’re thinking you want a half shed/half safe, then meet your next shed.

The Storboss Mountaineer is strong and secure. Not only are the steel panels thicker than standard size, the door is reinforced from behind, and the roof is reinforced from the sides. The company stands behind its strength with a 15 year limited warranty.

But just because it’s protected doesn’t mean it’s small. The swinging doors open to a massive 8ft wide, to allow easy access for ride on machinery and any other equipment. The high gable roof gives you a minimum height inside the shed of 6’2” tall.

The sheds appearance is quite standard, as far as metal sheds go. The exterior is quite plain with its one tone color scheme and no features, but doesn’t look ugly.

Our Verdict:

We picked this shed because it looks secure. Although it’s called the Mountaineer, we’d call it the safe. It will certainly do the job in any yard.

PROSCONS
Strong and secureBland appearance
Extra large door openingNo natural light sources
Great value

 

Basic 10×10 Storage Shed Frame Kit

Take the guesswork out of framing your shed

E-Z Frames 10x10 Storage Shed KitIf you lack confidence in your DIY skills, but still want a great looking wood shed on a budget, then this frame kit was made for you.

It takes a lot of the planning out of the process. There is no need to cut any fancy angles, and the kit comes with a material list so you know exactly what you need, and what size is has to be.

The brackets are for 2×2 lumber, which is cheap but still strong enough for your shed.

The best part is you can finish your shed how you want. If you want to you can create a different sized shed, you can even call up the manufacturer (E-Z frames) so they will create a custom made pack of brackets for you.

Our Verdict:

If you are lacking in confidence and experience but still want a wood shed, then this is a great inexpensive option.

Shelterlogic Round Style Storage Shed

A great temporary solution, or just something to take the weather off your motorbike or ride on

ShelterLogic 10x10 round style shed blankAs far as fabric sheds go, this one is quite resilient. The frame is made with high grade steel and is powder coated for extra resistance against the elements.

The fabric is strong and treated for a whole heap of things including anti-fungal agents, UV resistance and even ‘anti-aging’. I guess that keeps the wrinkles off the shed, but at the very LEAST IT WILL KEEP THE WATER OUT.

This thing will go up in around 2 hours and can be assembled by one person. We are unsure of how long the fabric covering will last, but on average you should see 5 years out of it before it needs to be changed. Of course the harsher the weather, the shorter the lifespan.

Our Verdict:

A good value buy, especially for moderate to warm climates.

PROSCONS
Great valueExtra Augers almost required
Easy to setupNo floor
Great customer serviceRoll up door can be fiddly
Easy to move

 

10 x 10 Display Shade Kit

Bring it out then put it away?

Caravan Canopy 10x10The Caravan Canopy is easy to pack and unpack. It folds itself back in and slips into the provided bag. This makes it easy to keep in the attic or basement, and get out when needed.

Because its a metal frame it is quite stable, although there is no real security. You can purchase ‘sidewalls' which are really just a 4 wall privacy screen, not suitable for your tools, but good for keeping the sun and light rain off of things.

This canopy is a good quality version, there are some plastic joints but is a lot more stable than the cheaper models.

This isn't for typical shed things, like storing tools. However it can be used for working in warmer conditions, and provides extra shade when needed.

Our Verdict:

A great instant solution, surprisingly easy to unpack and assemble. But not designed for storage.

PROSCONS
Very quick to assembleOnly 4 small legs
Quite sturdySecurity non existent
Lightweight and easy to moveNot for harsh conditions

 

Suncast Storage Building

The Average Joe of sheds

Suncast Storage Building 10x10This is a good shed without being great. If you are after something to do the job and a decent price then look into this shed.

The two tone look is quite neutral and will suit most yards. The manufacturer does make accessories for the shed, which are available as added extras.

Unfortunately, the walls are too thin to hang items from, but you can purchase shelving from Suncast for smaller items. The shelving accessories are made for holding particular tools and equipment.

Assembly is mostly snap together, although some soapy water and a mallet wont go astray. Like all other plastic sheds, a solid flat base is required so the panels all fit together and the doors work.

Sorry this review is a bit bland, but to be honest so is the shed. There's nothing to be excited about, this is in every sense of the word ‘average!'

Our Verdict:

A low maintenence solution, which will keep your equipment secure and dry

PROSCONS
Looks goodBasic appearance
Good valueWalls are too thin to hang items
Reinforced roof
Is this your next 10x10 Shed ?

WoodBridge Storage Shed

It’s a shed that looks like a shed

Duramax 10x10There’s no hiding that this thing looks kind of like a shipping container. The one tone color scheme and completely flat sides don’t help the cause either. To be fair, it’s a shed that looks like a shed.

But the truth is no one is buying this shed because of its looks. This plastic shed is significantly cheaper than other plastic sheds out there, and whilst being cheap, is tough enough to withstand harsh weather conditions.

The WoodBridge’s vinyl cladding is quite thin, but vinyl doesn’t need to be thick to be an effective insulator. The paneling is also reinforced with metal columns to help keep the rigidity of the shed.

The manufacturer claims that the shed is fire retardant and tested to 115mph winds, when anchored properly, and to a quite heavy snow load.

Our Verdict:

We like this shed because assembles quickly, and it will still store everything a more expensive 10×10 will, keeping it dry and secure.

PROSCONS
Strong and sturdyPlain looking
Tested against harsh weatherBase not included

 

Williamsburg Colonial Storage Shed

If your yard is your kingdom, then you need a special crowning piece for your shed

Williamsburg Colonial Garden Storage ShedNot only something that’s solid, but also looks great, and gives a great range of function.

Everything has been thought of at Little Cottage Co. to GIVE YOU A REALLY GOOD EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR SHED.

The sidings come attached to the wall panel section to ensure the shed is square when it goes up. And the door handles come with a locking mechanism so there are no ugly padlocks needed. The windows work, and ALMOST EVERYTHING COMES READY TO ASSEMBLE and paint.

You do need to provide the paint, shingles, dripedge, and floor (although you can buy the floor as an added extra). You can also customize the shed further with added extras such as flower boxes, extra doors and floor kits.

This is the most expensive option of our 10. You do pay for all THE QUALITY AND CARE that goes into building this shed, along with the option to customize it. Available in 10×10 and a great addition to your yard.

PROSCONS
Great qualityA little pricey
Added extras allow for customizingRequires shingles and other pieces
