We’ve been busy getting ready for a swinging 2012 – and just because it is January does not mean that shed builders are sitting on their laurels doing nothing!  We are slightly redesigning the popular Manor Shed to bring you a Heritage-style design.  Both, the Manor and the Heritage are sheds in the Estate Series offered exclusively by Fox’s Country Sheds.

We are in full production here at the Fox Den – a.k.a. our shop – and our crew is busily building stock sheds for our shed dealers to place on their lots once a busy spring season hits.  Of course, we are open year-round, and you can order your Manor Shed now.  Why wait for Spring when the backlog is huge?

Here are some photos of our new Manor Shed – an Estate Series Shed by Fox’s Country Sheds that will truly enhance your upscale property.

Are we nuts?

I saw a squirrel chasing a nut across the street yesterday, and somehow it struck me as quite ironic.  I’ve admitted before that I hate squirrels (and yes, hate is a strong word), but I was too amused with the scene to think about putting the pedal to the metal and making roadkill out of him.  No, I would never really do that, and I found myself slowing down to let him cross, as I watched, amused.

Who am I to put the brakes on his goals? It was quite funny because this nut was rolling down the hilly street, and this poor squirrel kept catching up, before it would get away from him again.

What struck me as ironic is the fact that we are all – squirrels and humans alike – chasing something. It might be a dream, it might be a goal, it might be the basic pursuit of happiness. And when we find that “something”, whether real or perceived, we tend to store it away. 

But at what point are we content with what we have? Here it is, springtime, and this squirrel surely would have had enough nuts stored away by now over the long cold winter.  Yet, here was one more that he just needed to have, risking life and limb and bushy tail as he crossed the street in front of my silver four wheeled nutcracker. 

How much stuff is too much?

Setting up the interior of a doublewide garage from Fox's Country Sheds

Where do we put all our stuff?

How do we keep it safe until we need to use it?

 

It reminded me of  when I was actively selling real estate, and buyers and their continued search for that one perfect house – chasing after each new listing and never making a decision.   The perfect house is out there, yet the search continues until they’ve exhausted themselves and their agent.  When do they stop?

It reminded me of myself as an active real estate agent and my continued search for the perfect buyer.  The perfect listing.  The perfect comission split and the perfect broker.  When do we stop?

And real estate sellers aren’t left out of the picture either. A seller who has stored all of his nuts into the equity of his home, only to find out that his cache is not worth as much as he thought. Where’d all that equity go?

I guess all of these thoughts would not have normally crossed my mind at the sight of a squirrel chasing a nut, but it just happened to be right as I was heading to yet another busy day at work at Fox’s Country Sheds. All my thoughts were on the busy day ahead, helping to run a custom storage shed manufacturing business and helping our customers to select the perfect storage shed for all of their nuts. Ahem…stuff. Thoughts of work, shed sizes, shed styles, “did I get the wholesale price lists out to all of our dealers”, “did we get the skylites on order in on time for the potting sheds”, is so-and-so ready for their delivery, etc., along with way too much caffeine in the morning, sparked this vision of us all chasing nuts.  And storing them.

….And thus, you might think I am one (a nut)…… but I’m not.

I’m just storing one.  Or two.  Or several.  Just like you are.

Maybe I’m not a nut – just a pack-rat. Where else can I keep my endless supply of garden hoses, rakes (at last count I think we have about 5 rakes), shovels, unused flower pots, sprinklers, opened bags of potting soil and peat moss…. you get the picture.

But, unlike that squirrely little gray rodent, my stuff is neatly stored in my Heritage garden shed garage.  If you ever wonder what type of shed or garage a shed builder has – this is it!  I lovingly refer to it as my “sh-arage” a cross between a shed and a garage.

After watching this squirrel and his amusing chase, I have to admit ~ I have a newfound respect for that busy little rodent.

But, as roomy as my Heritage Shed garage is – squirrels are not welcome!

How has the weather been in your part of the country? Here in central Pennsylvania where Fox’s Country Sheds is located, we’ve had quite a winter so far!  Snowy and icy – and I can honestly say that we are physically and emotionally DONE with it all!  We can’t wait for spring and warmer weather!

We are looking forward to delivering the completed sheds and garages that we have on our lot, just as soon as our customers let us know that their yards are free of ice and snow.  I am sure that they are eagerly awaiting delivery of their new shed, as well.

We’ve had a number of inquiries from homeowners whose old rotten sheds need replacing, as they are having trouble making it through another severe winter.  Rest assured that if you need a shed built quickly, we can get it done for you.  Many homeowners are having to submit an insurance claim for their old sheds and garages becoming damaged due to the snow and needing replacement.  We can help you with a written quote for a new shed, built to your specs and delivered to your property. Just let us know what you need!

Those of you who are ordering your Potting Sheds now, are smart to think ahead!  Ordering your Potting Shed now for early seed-starting means that you will have a head start on your organic garden this year.  That certainly is something to look forward to, isn’t it?

On a personal note, for the first time I will be planning a “straw-bale garden” this year.  I am hopeful that I am successful with it.  If so, I will be sure to post some pictures here on our Fox’s Country Sheds blog.  (Knowing me, I will post pictures of my garden even if I am not successful with my straw-bale endeavor!)

Stay warm – and think SPRING! and remember to order your custom Potting Shed from Fox’s Country Sheds now to beat the Springtime rush!

Many customers don’t realize that buying a shed does not need to happen only in the springtime!  Speaking with the wife of a new customer today, she told me that she thought her husband was going to wait until the spring to order his shed.  “Well, why wait!” was my response!

We are open and building sheds all year round – Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall – so why wait until any potential seasonal increases in price or waiting time?  You see, when there is a sudden boom of orders (usually in the Spring), raw material suppliers sometimes have a hard time of keeping up with our orders – lumber, vinyl siding, roofing shingles – and what happens is they increase their prices due to a shortage.  Supply and Demand.  We are not the only ones ordering these supplies – springtime means new home building as well, and even though the housing industry has slowed, historically the raw material prices tend to increase come spring.  We hate to do it, but many times we have to then pass along that increase onto our prices, as well.

If you are thinking about buying a shed in the spring, consider placing your order now.  You can take delivery of it whenever you are ready, whether it is sooner rather than later.  Take your time selecting your colors and size/style of shed – you have many shed options to choose from.  And, know that once your yard thaws a bit, you can get started on organizing your new shed and planning on how you will use up all that clear space in your garage.

Corner Nook Shed, 5-Sided Shed

Corner Nook Shed, 5-Sided Shed

Our 5-sided Corner shed has been specifically designed by us here at Fox’s Country Sheds for those homeowners who may have a smaller area in their backyards than other residential properties might have.  It seems that many newer home developments over the past several years have been laid out with smaller property sizes and more “open space” area throughout the neighborhood.  Sticking a plain rectangular shaped shed in a smaller backyard may not fit the aesthetic look that many homeowners want for their outdoor living areas.  We know how much thought people put into designing their sheds to match the look and feel of their home.  So, we thought we would help by designing this 5-sided Corner Nook shed to help those homeowners out.

So far, it’s been a great hit as more and more people are becoming aware of this corner shed design.

Our corner shed design is available in a number of sizes, such as 10×10, 12×12 or 14×14.  We have

also built them in 8×8 sizes for much smaller areas.  Some of our customers are using their Corner Nook shed as a poolhouse, while others are using it as a garden office.  We’ve even had a recent customer who customized his Corner Nook shed with a carriage-style garage door to securely house his motorcycles while making room in his regular garage for his cars.  Others simply use it as a shed (go figure!) tucked in a corner of their yard.  We’ve had a number of customers who have also used their Corner Nook shed alongside their home, between a deck and fence, etc.  Its an ideal shed for a variety of storage solutions while remaining pleasing in the landscape.

Keep in mind that we offer a variety of options at Fox’s Country Sheds that are available for each and every shed order that is placed.  This means that if you prefer, you can include full-glass

Full Glass Shed Door

double doors instead of the standard double doors.  Or, for use as an outdoor garden office, you might opt for a single entry door instead of double doors.  The large 24×36 windows that come standard with our Corner Nook sheds certainly let in quite a bit of sunlight, but we can always add an electrical package and pre-wire your shed for electricity such as outlets, bulb sockets and receptacles.

If you’d like to order a Corner Nook 5-sided shed, take a look at our selections on our website by visiting us at www.FoxSheds.com .
