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.

2. Storage

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.

3. Hobby Shop

Is your hobby taking up too much room in your home? A yard shed could easily become your favorite place to get away; to pursue your hobby and unwind after a long week. With a shed, you can close and lock the door and come back to find everything just the way you left it.

4. Art Studio

A yard shed can be an ideal place for an art studio. Imagine a shed with a few extra windows for natural light and situated in a quiet back yard. This could be an ideal setting that allows you to focus and gain inspiration when you need it most.

5. Concession Stand

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.

6. Animal Shelter

A yard shed provides a relatively inexpensive way to acquire additional housing for your animals with the potential for a climate-controlled environment. And your shed builder may give you the option of ordering your shed without a floor for housing larger animals.

7. Office

If you own a business and have outgrown your home office you may be pleasantly surprised to find out how easily outdoor buildings can be turned into office spaces. When compared to putting an addition onto your home, a shed requires only a small investment and can be ready to go in a shorter amount of time.

8. Pool House

Your pool needs a place to store all the extra paraphernalia when it’s not being used. You also need a changing room. A yard shed turned pool house is an excellent solution for your storage and privacy needs.

9. Garage

Maybe you’ve outgrown your existing garage or never had one. A garage shed with an overhead door can provide you with space to protect your vehicles from the elements. And you’ll be protected from the elements as well if you use your shed as a mechanic’s garage.

10. Guest Room

Sometimes you have unexpected guests. And sometimes it’s just nice to have a spare room available for family and friends. A yard shed can be finished on the inside to provide a safe and comfortable place to put up your special guests.

How Will You Use Your Shed?

If you’re thinking about buying a yard shed for one of the specialized uses mentioned above, you’ll want to be sure to buy a shed that is built to last. One of the key features to look for is pressure treated runners and floor joists. You’ll also want a building that is framed following standard housing construction procedures. Buying a quality shed will help to ensure that the extra investment you make to finish the inside won’t be wasted in a few years.
