How to Put Money Saved from Rent to Own Back into your Home

Jul 7, 2014 2:00:00 PM / by Cook Portable Warehouses


Who wouldn’t want some extra money to invest back into their home? But what about continuing to meet your family’s storage needs? There might be a simple answer to both questions: the Cook Rent to Own program.

The program can help you save money over other storage options such as mini-warehousing. Pay off your own shed and then put those funds toward improvements that increase the value of your home and your quality of life.

Rent to Own allows you to pay for your building in monthly installments with no long-term agreement and then use that money elsewhere on your home sweet home.

Ceiling Fans

Put a ceiling fan in a room that doesn’t have one or exchange older, out-of-date fans with new, more energy efficient models. They provide an inexpensive way to decrease energy costs. Just make sure the fan is 7 to 8-feet above the floor and buy the largest model that will fit into the space.

Crown Molding

Adding decorative molding can dress up any room and provides endless options for personalization at a low price. The choices vary from simple white to more decorative looks that can be painted or stained to match any room’s style.

Most moldings are easy to install and can be completed as a do-it-yourself weekend project. Make sure to match the height on the molding to the size and ceiling heights of the room. For smaller rooms with lower ceilings, choose more simple moldings.

Storage Space

With your Cook portable building, you might be thinking … I don’t need any more storage. But there are so many easy ways to add hidden organization space to your home.

Hanging racks behind doors, a bench, ottoman or large shelves adds space without creating an eyesore. Or take the drawers out of a desk and replace with baskets for additional places to organize items.

Pegboards in closets allows for tons of hanging storage space. Any wall provides room to organize vertically, which will open up space in your closet.


Adding trees to your yard provides shade, protects your home from harsh weather and can save you money on energy costs.

Trees growing around or in front of a home increases the sale price and reduces the length of time on the market. Plant trees that need copious amount of shade on the south side of a home and place trees that will break the wind on the north side.

Exterior Lighting

Outside lighting helps to emphasize the exterior beauty of your home. Also motion-detecting and solar powered lighting provide a more cost-efficient option. Place lights under larger trees and use white light to provide an uplifting and welcome atmosphere around your home.

Rent to Own

The biggest value addition to any home in a high-quality portable shed designed by you for your specific needs and style. And the money you will save, while paying toward owning a building rather than renting it, can go directly back into your home.
