March is pretty exciting for those who love sports (especially for those basketball fans out there)! And one of the biggest, most popular sports tournaments of the year gears up this week!  

But if you can’t make it to a game or go out with friends to watch, don’t worry you can bring the party to your home (right in your Cook shed)!

Your backyard Cook Portable Warehouse is multipurpose and can be the place to store your stuff, entertain family or friends, or even start a home business.  

Here are a few, simple ways to turn your shed into a paradise for sports fans, no matter what team they are rooting for!

Create a home theater

You can select any of our building styles, but the lofted building types will provide the necessary taller sidewall space for room to project the screen. Next, think about adding enough seating for your group to ensure everyone is comfortable and has enough space.

Other things to consider are adding ways to dim the lights with curtains or lighting that has dimming capabilities. Then, invest in a projector, screen and sound system (or repurpose items you already have)! For sports buffs and movie lovers alike, here are more tips!

Embrace the sports theme

Customize your sports cave with memorabilia from your favorite team or players! You could even add a small basketball hoop to get in some practice shots in-between games.

Or add a dry erase board or use chalkboard paint on one wall to display your bracket and keep up with the winning and losing teams.

Add other entertainment options

It’s also a good idea to have a few other entertainment options like a poker table with cards and chips, video games, or sports trivia to play in between the games.

If the weather is nice, you can also get some exercise in the backyard during those less than exciting games. And if you have tons of sports equipment, here are 4 creative ways to store those items and still save space.

Stock up on food and drinks

What’s a fun gathering without some delicious snacks and refreshing drinks? An easy way to keep your drinks cold and reduce trips back and forth to the house is with a large cooler. Or you can even turn your shed into a pub with just these 4 steps.

You can easily integrate the basketball theme into you snacks and desserts too. For some creative and easy to make recipes, click here!
