Handyman Flooring

Moisture is possibly the biggest enemy of your shed’s floor system. Think of all those spring rain showers, the early morning dew, the summer humidity and melting winter snow. It’s clear that moisture is difficult to avoid, but prolonged exposure could be detrimental to your shed’s durability.

Some shed buyers quickly discover their shed's flooring may not be as durable as they thought when they made the purchase. They ask "Why is my shed floor rotting?!" The simple answer is that their shed wasn't built to withstand the moisture that is unavoidable in any backyard.

This is why it's essential to know how your shed floor is constructed. Your belongings are valuable and need a secure, durable floor that will protect your things.

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

Apr 27, 2017 11:15:00 AM / by Cook Portable Warehouses posted in Home Improvement

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!


Canvas

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.
