When we were growing up, a shed was a dirty place your dad stuck the lawn mower and old tools in, but it held up well and did it’s job! Today, sheds are being customized for personal use in a variety of different ways. Check out CacheValleyShed’s article to see what these 5 Types Of People do with their sheds! Even the tool shed is becoming more updated, so that you can keep all the dirty tools and work on projects all in the same place.
Here are three common additions you must have for your tool shed to make it the ultimate HandyMan lair.
The first thing you should consider is adding electrical work. Simple electrical will be pretty inexpensive for your small shed. If you plan on building, measuring, or working on projects you are going to want good lighting. You will also need carefully planned outlets to plug your equipment in. In the summer you will want to plug in fan. In the winter you can add a space heater. Also, consider that a mini fridge and microwave never hurt anyone. Make your tool shed as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
Insulation and Drywall
After you have your electrical figured out, consider adding insulation and drywall. The insulation will keep your shed cooler in summer and warmer in the winter. These steps will also help keep out small rodents and bugs. You don’t want to deal with any small animal destroying your equipment. And last but not least, it will keep your shed quieter. You will have your own productive space to work without interruption.
Tool Benches and Tool Storage
After you have you have finished with insulation and drywall then you need to think about organization. What will you need you need to keep numerous small tools and supplies? WIll you want built in tables or benches? Cupboards for snacks or large shelves for equipment? Make the most out of your space by planning ahead what you will need. This will help you make the most out of your space and optimize your workspace.
