As one of our dealers says, “If you have a 100 customers come through, you’ll have a 100 different ideas.” Rosemary Sheppard, dealer in Valdosta, GA, has seen many different uses for a Cook shed, some unique and some more common. But, for each of them, she listened to their plans and helped them purchase the shed that would give them the right framework for what they were wanting to do.
The amazing thing about a Cook Portable Warehouse is that these sheds are solidly built and can be used for a variety of purposes as you’ve seen in our past blogs:
Now, here are some more portable shed purposes we’ve discovered due to the creativity and imagination of our customers from across the nation!
-Outdoor Cafe or Sandwich Shop
We have worked with local businesses before to customize the shed they need. We’ve cut out a large opening to give them a walk-up window to sell their food and drinks through. If you plan to do this, be sure you have the right permits and follow all local government laws and regulations.
Since Cook sheds provide a solid framework, with the right professionals working with you, you can add amenities to turn your shed into just about anything. Some customers have created a hair salon from theirs. If you plan to do this, be sure you have the right permits and follow all local government laws and regulations.
-Workshop for Online Store
One customer actually uses their Cook shed as their workshop for their Etsy store. They create and store items there to sell online.
-Stationary Storage for Frequent RV Travelers
Retired couples who are looking to travel, usually still have some belongings they want to keep safe, that can’t travel with them. So, they may purchase a mobile home spot to park their RV when they return, but also to keep their Cook shed and storage secure.
They’ll store the belongings they won’t need out on the road at this home base location. Cook sheds are all equipped with a locking door handle which help keep your belongings secure.
One customer customized a shed by putting double doors on either side of the shed. That way they were able to open up the doors for a nice breeze as they played pool and relaxed with friends.
If you have horses and have extra supplies you can’t keep in the barn, a Cook shed is the perfect solution. Some customers have used them as tack rooms to keep their feed, saddles and other horse tack.
-Retired Man’s Haven (aka Man Cave)
Retired couples can sometimes get a little tired of each other...and that’s ok! So Cook sheds are a great way to stay occupied without being in the house all day. Some customers have equipped their shed with air conditioning, their favorite recliner and a tv or radio.
Others have created a workshop for themselves so they can work on their favorite hobby or just finish those honey-do lists.
