Backyard Storage Sheds for Sale: Top Picks for Texas Homeowners


Texas homeowners — are you facing a battle against clutter in your home? If so, you're in good company. With a staggering 25% of Americans dealing with too much stuff and not enough space, the struggle is real. If your closets are bursting and your attic is overflowing, it might be time to consider a practical and stylish solution: an outdoor storage shed. Ideal for when you're out of storage options, these sheds are not just about creating space — they're about enhancing your lifestyle. Particularly for those with a larger home lot and unutilized yard space, a backyard storage shed helps you to make the most of your home and yard and tackle that pesky clutter in and around your home. 

5 Questions to Ask When Choosing the Right Shed

So, you’re looking to invest in a storage shed? Getting started can feel overwhelming as with any larger investment, so how can you purchase confidently? There are a handful of questions that we always recommend to first-time shed buyers that tend to narrow their options and also ensure that they’re making the best choice for their needs and lifestyle. 

1. What Size Shed Do I Need?

The size of the shed you need largely depends on what you plan to store inside it. If your goal is to store basic garden tools, a smaller shed might suffice. However, if you're looking to create a personal retreat like a man cave, complete with furniture and entertainment systems, you'll need a significantly larger space. It's not just about fitting everything inside; you also need to consider extra space for movement, future acquisitions, and potential shelving or storage units. Measuring the items you plan to store and the space they require is crucial. Always opt for a shed size that gives you a bit more room than you currently need to account for future needs.

2. What Will Be Stored in the Shed?

Understanding what you’ll store in your shed is crucial to selecting the right one. For simple storage needs like lawn equipment or seasonal decorations, you might want shelves and hooks for organization. However, suppose you're planning to use the shed as a workshop for hobbies. In that case, you'll need to think about additional features like workbenches, tool storage, adequate flooring to support heavy equipment, and possibly even electrical setups for power tools. For a relaxation or entertainment space, consider aspects like natural light, windows, and proper ventilation.

3. How Much Space Can I Spare?

When determining the space for your shed, take an extensive look at your backyard. It's essential to choose a location that allows the shed to fit comfortably without overcrowding your outdoor area. The shed should enhance your backyard's aesthetics, blending in with the environment and complementing features like gardens, patios, or pools. It's not just about squeezing in a shed; it’s about ensuring it enhances the overall appearance and functionality of your outdoor space.

4. How Will I Use My Shed in the Future?

Consider the future use of your shed, as your needs might change over time. Today's garden tool storage could become tomorrow's craft room or home office. Because of the flexibility, you’ll want to choose a shed that can adapt to different uses. This adaptability ensures that your shed remains a valuable and functional part of your property for years to come, catering to changing hobbies, growing families, or fluctuating work requirements. 

5. What Size Entry Do I Need? 

The size of the shed's entry is a significant consideration, especially if you plan to store large items. The door must be wide and high enough to accommodate the largest piece of equipment or furniture you intend to move in and out. For items like a riding mower, a double door might be necessary. Also, think about the practicality of moving items through the door. A wider entrance can make a big difference in usability, and adding features like ramps can further enhance accessibility.

What to Look for in a Shed Builder

Choosing the type of shed that you want to purchase is only half of the equation. Your shed will be an investment and a functional tool for your family for years to come. Here are some elements to consider that will help you choose the right shed builder the first time. 

Customer Service

A quick chat with customer service can reveal a lot about a shed builder. Are they eager to help? Do they answer your questions? This first impression is often a reliable indicator of the service you'll receive through the rest of your relationships with this builder. Use that information to decide whether or not you feel good about moving forward with them. 

High-quality Materials

We're talking vinyl, wood, and metal — each has its benefits depending on your needs. At Quality Storage Buildings, we use pressure-treated lumber and BC plywood flooring for durability and strength. Whomever you choose to work with, make sure that you’ve considered the materials, their quality, and the resulting longevity that you’re getting for that sticker price. 

Flexible Payment Options

Depending on your budget and what you’re looking for, it might be important to you that your chosen shed builder offers flexible payment options. For example, we’re proud to offer our customers a rent-to-own option with no credit check that allows just about anyone to get into the shed that is the best fit for their needs and budget constraints. Make sure that the builder that you select has a payment program that works for you.
