The storage unit across town can solve a few problems for families and businesses. This could include needing more storage space but not having enough yard or, for those apartment dwellers out there, not having a yard at all.
Everyone has different needs for their shed. But it goes beyond that, we know when a new person walks on any of our shed lots, we’re dealing with different personalities who prioritize and value different things.
Stop focusing on the negativity in the world for a second.
Here are the positive side effects you could experience when purchasing a new shed for you and your family.
They have a nice house. Decent yard. But, as soon as the call came through that they needed to quarantine for 14 days...the walls definitely felt like they were closing in a bit.
Your man cave is going to be a sacred space. It's a place that will be built just for you (Ok, maybe it'll be built for you and a few others in the family, but mostly you.)
There are three essentials for you to move forward with the perfect backyard Man Cave.
Maybe you've got a son who's really into the drums right now, or maybe you've been neglecting your own musical talent for a few years. Either way, a well built shed could be the right option for your garage band practice.
Garage bands aren’t just a thing of the past. Several of today’s well-known musical groups also came from such humble beginnings.
Here are a few reasons a portable building might be a good choice for any musician:
It looks like a giant box. I love playing with boxes. This should be fun. And oh look, they put in a little door for me. This must be MY BOX.
One of the keys in business is to not only pay attention to the market, but to listen to your customers. What are they saying, what struggles are they facing, what options are they choosing over you? When we started Cook Portable Warehouses, we sort of fell into it because of some excess lumber we had. You can read that story here.
But, the story was just getting started.
Even from that first building, we were listening to our very first customer as he described the customizations he wanted like the siding color and roof style. From that moment, we’ve continued to offer custom options, but along the way we discovered our customers needed something else.
It’s all stuff. But, it’s YOUR stuff.
It’s valuable, it’s meaningful, some of it is even irreplaceable. When people need more room for their stuff, they call us. But, over the years, your need for storage may not always be the same.
You may need more or less. You may just need space for a lawn mower for your first year, but then kids come along and all of a sudden you need a place to store furniture, yard toys, a kid bike trailer and an extra stroller.
What’s your dog house like? No, not your dog Jack’s four walls and a roof in the backyard. We’re talking about your own four walls and a roof (hopefully) where you go when you’ve discovered you didn’t notice her new hair cut, or you forgot to load the dishwasher, or you accidentally put her favorite shirt in the dryer...yeah we’ve been there. Historically, being in the dog house is not fun...but if you find yourself there often, maybe we can help you make a change.
