How Much Can I Store In An Amish Shed?

How Do I Know What Size Shed To Buy?

A frequently asked question by shed customers is “How do I know what size shed to buy”. What they are really asking is how do I estimate the amount of storage space I need. There are some general guidelines that are standard in the industry, though every situation has its own variables.
Amish sheds come in different sizes to fit different storage needs. How much space you need will depend on what you plan to use the shed for. Someone who wants to store a lawn mower and gardening equipment will likely want easy access to all of the shed’s contents, while someone looking to rent their house as an Airbnb while they are at college out can stow their valuables from floor to ceiling, allowing them to store more in the same amount of space. That being said, you will find some industry standards below.
