Mar 10, 2020 3:00:00 PM / by Cook Portable Warehouses posted in Buying a Shed


A variety of shed styles

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. 

A Cook portable building is a great option and our shed buying process is pretty simple. So, what's your first step?

Top Shed Styles & Features [Infographic]

Jan 21, 2020 11:26:02 AM / by Cook Portable Warehouses posted in Buying a Shed, Storage Tips


We love helping families find more room for their stuff! Across our 14 state service area, our top three buildings sold in 2019 were the Lofted Barn, Utility Shed and our Tool Shed

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. For instance, we serve a lot of customers who live in HOA communities or city neighborhoods. Their yards are smaller and their storage space is usually limited. So, the Slim Shed became the perfect solution. It looks like an extension to your home and is conveniently placed in your backyard. 

Below we review what our customers love from shed styles, sizes and custom options. Take a look and let us know when you’re ready to build your shed!

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. 

Although there are countless advantages when purchasing a Cook building over other portable shed companies, here are the top three benefits of choosing a Cook Portable Warehouse.

Lofted-barn in yardThroughout the year and across 14 states, we’ve worked hard to find our customers more room for their stuff. From hobby workshops to she sheds to storage sheds, we’ve been dedicated to helping our customers not just find a shed, but the shed they need. 

And, what a large majority of our customers need is apparently our Lofted Barn. For every 100 Cook customers, 30 are choosing our Lofted Barn option.

Why? Mainly because it offers the most storage space for the square footage it takes up in the backyard. You have the main level for larger equipment and then the loft for additional storage.
