Cool Ways To Use Metal Buildings On Your Property

If you want to increase your home's living space, consider investing in a metal storage shed or out-building for your property. These are widely sold and easily augmented to accommodate a number of unique and clever uses that will increase the living space of your home in a cost-efficient way.

Some cool ways to use inexpensive metal buildings include:

For a work-space. Move your office into your metal building! These are easily insulated, and you can either wire the unit with power or run a cord from your home to provide electricity. These are particularly practical for those that work from home and that need a dedicated work-space that is away from the distractions of chores, pets, and children.

To tend gardens. Set up a metal shed to use as a garden tender. This makes keeping your landscape beautiful a breeze, and it is a very convenient way to store your soil, supplies, and seedlings during warm weather. Plus, these add a quaint and welcoming curb appeal to the property!

For backyard drinks. Especially during warmer weather, don't you wish you had a backyard bar? Set up your metal building to serve as a bar, where your keg stays cold and you can stash all your barware, utensils, and liquor. Add some stools and an inexpensive laminate or Formica counter and you will have a great place to entertain friends.

As an art studio. Feeling crafty? Use your metal shed as an art studio where you hone your skills and store your supplies. If you use the space for photography or painting, make sure to check moisture levels and dehumidify if needed to prevent damage to your works.

Some simple strategies to enhance the utility of your metal shed are:

  • Placement is everything; make sure that your metal building is near enough the primary home for convenience but tucked out of high-traffic areas if possible.
  • Consider investing in a cement pad or using a patio for a firm foundation that will support your metal shed all year long.
  • Adorn the foundation or braces of the shed with skirting, or plant shrubs and hedges strategically so that it conceals these under-pinnings.
