Aug 23, 2017 8:58:29 AM / by Cook Portable Warehouses

One of the questions our Cook Portable Warehouse dealers hear often from customers shopping for a backyard shed is, “How do I know which shed style is right for me?”

Each of our local dealers will have a conversation to best determine which of our portable building styles best meet your specific needs. To meet just a few of our dealers, click here!

But to get started, here is a little about each of our storage options to help you select the right shed for your needs. 



Cook Portable Warehouses Barn

The Barn style is a functional, low-profile building with a traditional style that looks great in any backyard and easily matches different outdoor decor.

It’s ideal for anyone with medium storage needs who needs a secure place to store their excess stuff, from gardening tools to larger equipment and vehicles.


Lofted Barn

The number one seller of Cook Buildings is our Lofted Barn due to its overhead storage capacity and large amount of interior cubic space.

This portable warehouse is the perfect option for anyone who needs copious vertical space to store larger items like stackable boxes or tall pieces of furniture. It also provides room to convert into a work or hobby shop.



Cook Portable Warehouses Garage

The Garage is the most flexible of our Cook building designs and provides the adaptability to meet a variety of unique large storage needs in the 12-foot size.

The heavy-duty floor ensures the building can hold heavy and expensive possessions like vehicles, furniture, and outdoor equipment.

The second of the lofted styles, Lofted Garage also offers a large amount of cubic space. The lofted space makes it easy to keep the floor of the warehouse clear for larger items like vehicles and equipment.

The 12-foot size is the best choice if you need secure storage for cars, boats and large all-terrain vehicles.



Cook Portable Warehouses Utility

The Cook Utility is the perfect storage building for a first-time shed owner because it provides the adaptability that is essential. The tall sidewalls provide vertical storage space often missing inside your home or garage.

Use the tall sidewalls to hang shelving and convert the space into an ideal tool shop or She Shed.


Garden Shed

This specialty building provides an eye-catching exterior décor that makes a statement in any backyard. The Garden Shed is the perfect selection for gardeners because a flowerbox and shutters come standard.

This attractive building is the perfect space for any unique hobby and can easily be converted to a children’s playhouse or potting shed.


Tool Shed

The Tool Shed is both an economical and versatile choice for both moderate storage needs and to provide space to keep tools and supplies clean and organized. The design is similar to the Utility building, but the sidewall height is much shorter in comparison.

This shed is a great choice for any hobbyist or to store those things like tools that keep cluttering up your interior space.



Cook Portable Warehouses Handyman

The Handyman is truly a unique warehouse because it is divided and provides two spaces, with two separate doors. So, this shed provides room for two different purposes, both storage and work or studio space.

It also comes with two workbenches, so this serious, multipurpose space building is the place to get work done.
