RE: can we talk sheds?

I'm with you on the metal sheds.  They tend to rust and to "leak" when rain
comes horizontally down.  Wooden sheds do need upkeep, for certain, but they
are better than the metal.  The good thing about a wooden shed is that you
can design it to fit your space, match your house, etc.  As for the
plastic/rubber type, their size is limited, but witnessing the toys the
grandboy had that was made out of the same material, it will last and last
and last and you probably won't have to worry about leaks.  It's how the
rubber-maid/plastic looks as it ages that is the not so positive factor,
though it will look good for several years.

Subject: [CHAT] can we talk sheds?

those of you who have sheds.....

wondering what is the best feature of yours? As well as wondering what is
the worst....

I don't want one of those steel ones that will rust and leak and dent
when something gets slammed into it.... Not sure I really want a wooden
one with teh maintaince that goes with it, so looking at the sided or
rubber type.

Seen a few over the weekend. Unfortunately, due to coding in my town,
the only place I can put it, my size is restricted. So I have a toss up
on which one to buy... so it can't be wider than 8ft... and probably 8ft
long, although I might be able to work something a tad longer in there.

one is 9" wider and longer, but shorter, as in I would have duck to get
inside, although I could stand in it, John would be very close. This one
also has a wood floor.

The other one is smaller by 9", but much taller, so entering/exiting is not
an issue. This one also has rubber type floor.

So thoughts and other options, or concerns I should address?
