Have you ever come home from a long day at work and not feel the peace you expected? The first thing to meet you as you came up the drive was a bicycle laying in the grass—which needed cut—and overflowing trash cans. Inside, dishes filled the sink, shoes lay strewn about the entryway, and toys decorated the living room floor. Studies show that cluttered spaces cause depression, anxiety, and lack of focus. And all of this steals our peace. “Dealing with clutter and living a more organized life,” said Nealey Stapleton, a professional organizer from northern Virginia and owner of The Organizing Boutique, “is super important for our health, both mental and physical.”
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
