You take pride in your yard during the Summer, but don’t let it stop there. Your yard can become the epitome of holiday cheer. So, even if you’re feeling a little more like Scrooge, at least your yard won’t give it away.
Trying to keep up with the Joneses? It’s a little unrealistic, don’t you think? The important thing is to get what you need and a little of what you want. So, do you need a new phone? Below you’ll find some of the top options. Need more room for your stuff? Then let’s find you the right storage solution.
After Thanksgiving (and the food coma) is over, holiday shopping goes into full force with Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and December holiday gift shopping. But, for many of us it’s difficult to stay on a budget and get the gifts you want to delight your family and friends.
Decorating your house, yard, and shed for Halloween doesn’t have to take a ton of time or break the bank. You can add an eerie quality to your outdoor space with some simple DIY projects using stuff you most likely have around your home.
Temperatures will continue to dip so now is the time to begin thinking through how you'll store items through winter. In your garage? Your shed? Under the bed?
Whether it's summer clothes or outdoor lawn equipment, you'll need a safe place to store it during the colder months.
The great thing is that a Cook shed makes this process so much easier! Cook sheds are available in many different styles to fit your needs. You can even split up your space, the Lofted Barn being a great option if you’re needing room for storage but also for large equipment. Or, the Handyman offers two spaces for you to enjoy your hobby and also store extra belongings.
So, as a part of your fall cleaning routine, put away those summer items until you need them again. You want to make sure you put these items away in a secure spot, away from bugs and the elements. Cook portable buildings help you declutter the garage and your closets so you have room for seasonal clothes, recreational items and equipment.
As one of our Cook dealers Mike Otis has shown us, Cook sheds are a great place to create! Our portable buildings can be used for craft rooms, workshops or even your office.
Mike in his spare time uses the sun and a magnifying glass to create artwork for his customers or for his own home. He burns designs into the wood to create signs for sheds, businesses and homes. This is called wood burned artwork or pyrography.
He’s created pieces featuring holidays, people’s interests and favorite sports teams. How does he do it? With these three main ingredients:
The holiday season brings tons of cheer and time to relax with family and friends. But, it’s also an extremely busy time of year with family coming into town, entertaining, hosting meals, buying gifts, and decorating your house in a festive way.
We have all been frustrated when we go to decorate our tree or the exterior of our home and have to search through boxes and boxes of broken ornaments and burned out bulbs.
But, if you spend a little time post-holiday getting your supplies and decorations organized, you will be thankful next year! Get started with this blog on creative ways to organize your holiday stuff!
If you are looking for the perfect place to keep all those seasonal items that only get utilized once or twice a year, consider adding a Cook Portable Warehouse to your backyard.
A new, high-quality backyard shed doesn’t have to wipe out your holiday budget. Through the Cook Rent-to-Own program, you can pay off your shed on a monthly basis. Unlike storage units, with Cook you are paying toward the value of your space. Read a more detailed comparison between the two storage options.

Your Cook shed holds many possibilities! But, don’t discount what you can do with the outside of your shed as well as the inside.
During warmer months, there’s many ways you can incorporate your shed into your landscape. But, during the winter holidays, don’t forget to include your shed when you’re decorating!
This do-it-yourself project is part of our Yuletide DIY series. If you missed a post this holiday season, check them out here!
We decided to transform the outside of our shed into Santa’s workshop! If you’re having kids over for holiday parties, invite them to leave mail for Santa in the decorated mailbox. It will be fun for kids and parents alike.
We only touched the outside, so no one has to peek inside to see your storage or wood working space. Simply decorate the outside to go along with the theme of your home and yard.
Here’s our instructions (plus videos!) of how to convert your shed into Santa’s Workshop:
In addition to an outdoor, prelit Christmas tree, a wreath for the door, and a little extra ribbon, here’s the Yuletide DIY extras that we added to the shed.
