10x12 Metal or Wood Storage Sheds


A little extra space in one’s yard can, at some point, be a useful or even necessary thing. When that happens, a shed is often a good solution to the problem, as it allows one to make the best use of available space. For that reason, purchasing the right size shed to match both one’s needs and the space is important. At Alan’s Factory Outlet, we have a wide selection of sheds and shed sizes available for purchase, including 10x12 sheds. When you buy a 10x12 shed from us, you can trust that you are getting a structure of the finest quality and craftsmanship.

There are several things to consider when buying sheds of this size, one of them being the need for building and other permits. Because of its size, a 10x12 storage shed may be small enough not to require a building permit in some areas. It is important to always use caution and check with one’s local government office, as laws vary from state to state and even county to county. In addition, it is important to check zoning regulations, and if plumbing or electricity is put in, additional permits are typically required. Once it has been confirmed whether 10x12 sheds in your area require a permit, consider the best location to place the shed. This should be an area that is large enough to accommodate a shed that is 10x12, not overly shaded, and where water does not accumulate. You’ll also want to consider how closely the shed should match the appearance and/or color of your house. Here at Alan’s Factory Outlet, we also offer you the option of a prefab 10x12 shed kit.

One of the biggest decisions that you’ll need to make is whether to buy a 10x12 wood shed or a metal one. At Alan’s Factory Outlet, we have both available for sale. With a wood shed, you have several different paint and shingle color choices to choose from. In addition, there are several style options available, including dormer sheds, A-frame sheds, Quaker sheds, sheds with a porch, barn-style sheds, and more. Wood sheds, with the exception of the mini barn style, also come with two windows. Customers who are interested in metal sheds may also order them in this size. Metal sheds that are this smaller size, however, are ordered by request and are specially made. Metal 10x12 sheds also come with the option for windows, are available in 13 colors, and are built on site. They offer solid protection against severe weather, and because they are bolted down, they may also provide greater structural security.

A 10x12 storage building or shed serves a number of useful purposes. For the homeowner, a shed of this size may be just what is needed to meet your gardening needs. It can be useful for storing gardening supplies such as lawn mowers, lawn tractors, and more. Instead of storing supplies, the gardener in the family may prefer to use the space for potting or planting seedlings or other gardening tasks. An active family may use their shed for storing recreational equipment such as bicycles, for example. A 10x12 metal shed may even be a suitably safe place to store one’s motorcycle. A shed of this size can also free up space in one’s home by providing outside storage for rarely used or seasonal items. The extra space may even be used for storing and/or working on certain crafts or hobbies. Regardless of what it is used for, keeping one’s 10x12 shed clean and organized is critical to getting the maximum space and use from it. Consider using hanging baskets, shelving, peg boards, and other storage and organizing ideas to make the space more efficient.
