Whether you’re designing a brand new storage shed, or just considering remodeling an existing one, including where to place the doors and windows, is an important decision. Afterall, no one enjoys stumbling around in the dark. If you’re asking, “How do I customize my shed layout?” with the location of doors and windows, you should also be asking, “What will I use the building for?” No one wants to climb over the lawnmower every time he needs to reach the workbench. And storing the fishing equipment in the not-so-easy-to-access back corner is, well, not so easy. Deciding what you’ll be storing in the building, how much time you’ll spend there, and what you’ll be doing while inside, will help you choose the location of your shed windows and doors.
Every shed has a story. Even yours!
A 12×16 Storage Barn took 1st place this year … complete with a “smashing” set of photos (see pic’s below, and this will all make sense!)
We hosted a contest, and invited our clients to submit their shed stories. We got a bunch of interesting responses, and 3 winners. For the winning entries, our criteria were pretty simple: We were looking for a confirmed Byler shed, an interesting story, and photos that helped to tell the story. And now, our congratulations to …
- 3rd Place — $50 — Lynette Rambo
- 2nd Place — $50 — Robin Fridley
- 1st Place — $100 — David Kanode
In this post, we’ll feature the first place story and photos. But expect to see the others around on our website. Next time, your story could be the winner!
My story began on a dark and stormy night. A huge pine tree blew over, landing on my shed. That is when I became in need of a storage barn.
I looked at five different builders, in Virginia and West Virginia. The price of the Byler Barns were very compatible, not the most or not the least. The quality of the materials and the craftsmanship were what sold me on my Byler Barn. Everyone I talked to was very helpful and the whole deal went very smooth from ordering to delivery.
I decided to add a loft on both ends up top and add a workbench on one end and shelves on the other. I then put pegboard on the side wall and behind the workbench.
I am very satisfied with my barn and I recommend to everyone to check out Byler Barns .
Thank you, David Kanode
