We're in the beginning stages of our landscaping
and have decided we'd like to have a garden shed
to store items like the snow blower, lawnmower
and all my gardening tools. The garage is big but
we want to keep it sparse ~ it houses two cars
and will soon be the home of a workshop for my
dh. So a shed is now on our list and worked into
our frugal budget. Now we have a big decision.
This first shed is from Costco. It is made from Resin
and appears to be sturdy. We like the look and it can
be painted if we choose to match it to the color of
the house. I'd put window boxes on. The only worry
is that Resin can in time wear down. And crack and
break. Will it hold the snow load in the Winter?
Our second choice is this one that a lovely family is
selling because they are moving. It's about $300 less
than the other one but we'd have to hire a company to
deliver. So price will be roughly the same for either.
It's made of solid wood and looks brand new when
we popped over to look. Their is a large door on the
side for getting large items in. We'd paint it to match
the house. The sturdiness for snow load in the cold
Winter months would be much better. And our sweet
landscape artist did suggest we find a "quaint" shed.
What one is more appealing for a vintage look?
Which one would you choose if you have to decide?
