Here are the 5 moments every introvert stuck at home has wished for a backyard shed as we’ve faced COVID-19.
There’s a little paradise found on a dead-end street in Kentucky, where a creek runs alongside and a new workshop has just been set up. When everything is in full bloom, his backyard is the perfect spot to work or relax, even though it's near the city. It’s what inspired the name for Chris’s hobby shop, Calming Creek Wookworks.
You have a variety of storage needs from your bedroom closets to your kitchen pantry. But, many times those locations begin seeing odd items. Your kitchen pantry may have tools and gardening equipment and your bedroom closets are now overrun with Christmas decorations! Or, perhaps you've taken over the spare bedroom with your hobby. So, every time the grand kids come over, you have to put everything away, killing your productivity.
No matter what your storage need, we can help you find a solution. A place for you to enjoy your hobby instead of setting up and tearing it down every week. A place for you to store your lawn equipment and seasonal decorations. A place for you to keep your home feeling like home instead of a storage den.

Plus, we introduced 5 NEW shed styles. How did these new shed styles come about? Because we recognized different customer needs and began designing sheds to fit them.

So, the Slim Shed became the perfect solution. It looks like an extension to your home and is conveniently placed in your backyard.

The Cook Difference is defined as the things that elevate us over other portable shed companies. If you haven't visited many shed lots then you may not know this secret yet: Not all portable buildings are equal. That's why we always encourage you to ask a lot of questions before you buy any shed, especially if it's not from us.
So, what makes Cook so different? We don't just build a shed, we build our customers a sturdy blank canvas that will allow them to create the right storage shed, she shed, man cave or workshop that they've been dreaming about. Not only that, but we have warranties and decades of experience to back up our claims that we are the longer lasting option.
Our team works hard to build the best quality sheds made of materials that will last the test of time. When you talk with a dealer or one of our online sales facilitators, they're all working to find you the right building for your needs. Don't ever settle for a shed that doesn't fit your needs today and three months from now. It's one reason why we encourage the rent-to-own program because it gives you time to determine if your shed is too small or too big for your purposes and backyard.
