The Wonderful World And Truth About
Sheds And Outbuildings
or as I like to call it…
STORAGE! We need it and gotta have it!
As a Real Estate Appraiser of 25+ years and having inspected over 6500+ properties, of which 90% or so being rural to rural residential properties, I have definitely seen my fair share of sheds and outbuildings! What you are about to read is a combined personal and professional opinion about sheds and outbuildings.
First off is that I really really like sheds and outbuildings and not just because we need for storage but even more so because of their multi-use functionality. I mean seriously, what other types structures have you seen that can be transformed into so many useful designs? While I can’t say that I’ve seen it all, I can say that I’ve seen the very simple storage building to all-out custom and high-end “man-caves”, plus there are other uses which include but are not limited to hobby/craft room, home office, outdoor “canning” kitchen, studio “in-law” apartment, etc.. Pretty much, whatever you can dream of, you can most likely make it a reality with a shed or outbuilding.
The Nuts And Bolts Of It All
So a few questions you may have are, how big do I build? What design or style should I build? Will a shed or outbuilding add value to my property?
Size matters, my personal opinion is to always consider building 2 to 3 times what you think you need. One of, if not the most common things I hear when homeowners have built (or bought) a shed or outbuilding is “I should have gotta a bigger one”. The facts are, once you build one, you will need more space!
Conform or not to conform? The design or style really depends on whether or not conforming to your landscape appeals to you. You can build any design or style and still have it look good, but if you desire a little more “curb appeal” then choosing to conform to your landscape would be a preferred design or style. And by landscape, I mean the overall “picture” of your property and whether or not you want your shed or outbuilding to match it.
A common misconception that homeowners are told by various salespeople is that sheds or outbuildings will add value to your property. I state misconception because that is partly true. To make it fully true, a shed or outbuilding must be permanently attached to have any contributory value towards a property’s value as a whole. And a core consideration when deciding whether to build or buy pre-built is that the actual cost does not equate to an equal “cost” value which is why I always promote DIY building. Building a shed or outbuilding yourself (or with friends) has its benefits such as a sense of accomplishment, ability to customize as you build, and cost savings just to name a few. According to HomeAdvisors “Cost to Build a Shed” the average cost is $2,934. With all the variables and considerations taken into account, I don’t see how they can come up with a “one size fits all” average, but they do.
