Creative Welcome Signs (that don't just say "Welcome")

Sep 11, 2019 11:15:00 AM / by Cook Portable Warehouses posted in Home Improvement


She Shed Entrance

One of the fun parts of decorating your home or even your shed, is adding a welcoming entrance. You can add a welcome mat, colorful plants, even paint your door a bright, inviting color.  But, one simple way to greet your guests is by creating a welcome sign.

This sign doesn’t always have to say “welcome,” though. Get creative and let your personality show!


If you’re from the south, then “Hey Y'all!” may be your favorite greeting.  A fun idea is to trace your state onto a canvas or piece of scrap wood, then paint your favorite welcome phrase on top.  In this example, they took the background color and made it a couple of shades darker to add an accent design, so the canvas didn’t look as flat.

Own a Shed? Here’s How To Turn It Into An Office Or Studio

Jun 3, 2019 12:50:00 PM / by Cook Portable Warehouses posted in Home Improvement



If you’d like a quiet place to work from home, covert your shed into a home office! Portable buildings also serve as great studios and hobby centers. While you could use the shed just as it comes, some people prefer to go above and beyond, creating a truly ideal work space for their needs.

It’s important to note that this should only be done if you own your shed. Though our rent-to-own program is a great offer, you'll need to wait until it is fully paid off before making any permanent changes. One of the benefits of the rent-to-own option is that you can actually get a feel for if this shed is the right size for your DIY home office or not. If you find it's too small you can always trade up to a larger size without losing your investment.
