There are many ways that yard sheds can be used. Traditionally, sheds (or mini barns) have been used for storing things such as garden tools, lawn and sports equipment, bicycles, etc. While this is still an excellent way to use a shed, countless yard shed owners have discovered that a simple mini barn can be turned into almost anything and used for almost any purpose even as a residential shed. Just in case you need a little help imagining what your new yard shed could be used for, we’ve come up with a list of ways to use a shed that will stir your imagination and guide you as you look for portable buildings for sale.
1. Hunting Cabin
If you own a piece of hunting land a yard shed can be turned into a great hunting cabin! It can provide a warm and comfortable retreat for you when you need to get out of the elements and rest for a while.
If you’re like most people you tend to accumulate a lot of extra things. A yard shed can come in handy when you’ve run out of room for everything. It can be used for storing basic household items or for extra space if you run a business out of your home. And a mini barn at your home sure beats running to the rental storage unit every time you need something.

Why couldn’t you turn your shed into a place to sell things! The portability of a yard shed makes it ideal for almost any setting including roadside stands. Your mini barn can be customized to use as a drive through or walk-up concession stand.
