Ideally, we would like no outbuildings in our yard. Foliage only, please. But that's just not realistic. We had already built a charming little shed out of scraps and old recovered windows and door, but it was constantly overfull, no matter how diligently we'd purge. Moreover, it had been a substantial project to build.
Enter the compact, assemble-in-your-sleep-in-five-minutes Rubber Maid Vertical Storage Shed. 1 trip to the hardware store, 1 box, 15 minutes in the yard, 0 tools. Priceless.
Actually, no, it definitely did have a price, and that would be my only quibble. At 300 clams, 52 cubic feet of plastic seems a little dear. But then it does seem one is always choosing between quick/easy and cheap.
