When you first think about it, 10×12-foot garden sheds don’t sound like a lot of space. But when you get down to it, you can fit quite a lot in that space and even have a little room to work inside if you so desire.
A 10×12 shed is one of the most popular models. Let’s discover the reasons why.
The Perfect Size
Smaller sheds are available, but the 10×12 seems to be a perfect size. It’s not too small yet not too large either. It can easily store several vehicles or larger equipment like a riding mower or snowblower, wheelbarrows, pressure washers, and bicycles.
Take Advantage of the Walls
The walls can also be fitted with shelving, hooks, pegboards, or a combination of the three. This way, you can store just about anything that will hang and keep it off the floor simultaneously. You can create space for garden tools like shovels, hoes, and rakes, along with a spot for your regular tools as well. You might even want to have a workbench inside!
Fits in Just About Any Yard
Even if you don’t have a large backyard, a 10×12 shed doesn’t take up a whole lot of space—your two-car garage is likely a bigger space! In case you want to see for yourself, you can mark the distances off in your yard to envision what a 10×12 shed would look like in your space.
Permits May Not be Required
You’ll want to ensure with your local city or county, but building permits may not be required for smaller sheds like a 10×12 model. This will save you both time and money and give you the flexibility to place the structure wherever you want in the yard. However, one thing to watch for is whether you can place a shed close to a property line, so in any event, it’s best to check with your municipality before proceeding.
It Can Save You Money
Of course, a larger shed is going to cost more money. This is why it’s best not to discount that a 10×12 shed will be too small. Like we mentioned: map it out in your yard and place what you would put on the floor to see if you have enough room. You can even add a loft to add to the square footage for storage inside. Then consider how you want to structure storage space on the walls, and you may find that this size will be enough for you.
