We recently delivered a customized CORNER NOOK shed to a customer in Virginia.  The Corner Nook shed is a 5-sided shed which fits snugly into the corner of your yard.  The customer was so pleased, he shared a photo of the shed in his backyard, as well as a testimonial to the service and craftsmanship he received from Fox’s Country Sheds.

Corner Nook 5-Sided Shed from Fox's Country Sheds, in customer's backyard in Virginia.

Customer testimonial:  “I wanted to let you and your team at Fox Sheds know that we love our five sided (Corner Nook) shed!  It looks great, colors are perfect, the quality of the construction is well beyond any other sheds we have seen, and the configuration has allowed us to get things off the floor and on the walls for more efficient storage.  Also, Dale did a great job navigating the shed through the tight fit to get the shed in place. Attached is a picture of the shed in place.  It’s been a pleasure working with you and thank you for everything!”
– Steve (in Virginia)

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!

I’ve noticed lately that consumers have been looking for Cabana Sheds and landing on our website for the variety of sheds we offer, including  Cabana Sheds, Porch Patio Sheds and Porch Nook Sheds – all which make great Poolhouse Sheds.  Perhaps its the turn of the seasons – with the cooler weather upon us homeowners are trying to figure out what to do with their pool equipment and other outdoor living necessities for safe storage until next spring or summer.

Here is a recent Cabana Shed that we built for a customer in  Virginia.  Its a fairly large size, at 14×20 this must have been some sight traveling down I-95 South all the way to Manassas from Lancaster County!

We stored the cupola and large stained-glass weathervane inside the shed for safe transport.  Once the shed was delivered to the customer, our skilled shed delivery person installed the copper cupola and weathervane for the customer.

All of the sheds and poolhouse sheds at Fox’s Country Sheds are built to order.  Contact Fox Sheds for a quote on a shed or garage to meet your needs.  Shed kits are available as well.

The customer who was referenced in this recent shed blog post, sent us a very lovely testimonial letter.  Keep reading:

“The shed is so nice, we hate to call it a shed!  So, it has become our garden cottage!  Everyone at Fox’s Country Sheds was terrific to work with.  After we finish landscaping, we will send pictures!”

~ The Basoms, Elizabethtown PA.

Well, we can’t wait to see them!

Well, we finally got it done, although the rainy days skewed up our schedule a bit.  I’m talking about a beautiful, custom, Manor Shed design that we built for customers in Elizabethtown, PA., this week.

It seemed to rain – hard – every time we had the shed site prep scheduled for this particular customer. I’m sure it started to get them discouraged, but mother nature is beyond our control.  Site Prep is when our crew goes out to the customer’s property to prepare the site where the shed will be placed.  A proper site preparation, also called “a pad”, entails our crew going out with a skidloader and a dumper (ours is affectionately called “big red” or Clifford) full of crushed 3/4″ stone.  (I like to call the skidloader Wall-E because it reminds me of that little creature in the Pixlar movie).  But, I digress.  To prepare the pad, we measure out the size of the shed, add 12″ all around, and start to dig down with the skidloader about 4-6 inches (depending on the lay of the land).  We can either haul that extra dirt away, or leave it for the customer to use for other uses around the house.  Then the dumper jumps into action and fills that area with the stone, while our guys level it out.  Sometimes a border is required, sometimes not.

So anyway, it seemed that every time we planned on getting this particular site done, it would rain.  Hard. (I realize I am repeating myself here, bear with me!)  We really don’t like to drive all of this large equipment onto someone’s wet yard, so we need to re-schedule and hope it doesn’t rain again for the new date.

Our other delay for this particular shed was the backorder for the custom vinyl siding that the customer selected.  Our standard vinyl siding is a dutch-lap style, which is a very popular type of vinyl siding.  But some customers have a particular manufacturer or style/color on their home, and they would like to use the same vinyl siding on their shed.  We have access to all manufacturers and can easily order whichever siding the customer selects to upgrade to.  However, we cannot always control the distributor’s shipping schedule.  So, this Wolverine Natural Clay siding was delayed as well (and we can’t blame mother nature for this!).

Sun shines on sheds!

Finally, the site prep was done and there were a few clear, sunny days predicted for this part of the Susquehanna Valley here in Lancaster County. What had us so concerned about the nice weather after the site prep was done was that this particular shed was to be “built-on-site”. Since there was no access for a delivery shed trailer to bring in the shed pre-assembled, our crew pre-built the majority of the walls, doors, etc., in our shop and built the entire shed “on site”.  It is usually a site to behold!  Like an old fashioned barn-raising, our crew can usually have the shed up in just a matter of hours.  For a truly customized shed, this may take a bit longer.  We also have shed kits available for customers who choose to build the shed themselves.

In this case, it was two days of “on site” building. This custom Manor Shed design had several windows added to it (in addition to the two that are standard) with box trim on each of them.  If I recall, I think it was a total of 10 windows (which makes a great potting shed)!  It also had raised walls (7-ft tall) and a “dutch door”.  The standard door on the Manor shed is a round-top wood door, which really adds appeal to the design of the shed.  “Dutch Doors” are the type of doors that are split into two, where you can swing open the top part when undoing the latch that holds it into place, while keeping the bottom part of the door secured in place.  It’s what you may see on many barns, where the horse’s head is peeking out to see what is going on. 🙂   Shawn helped to build these, and he knows why! 😉

After two days of building, the custom Manor shed is done! We are excited about it, and the rest of us in the office at Fox’s Country Sheds were anticipating seeing photos of it.  Unfortunately, someone forgot to take a photo! Not mentioning any names though (Brad!)  🙂  Hopefully we will have time to go back this week and take some nice ones to share.  Until then, we will all have to use our imagination (including you)!

Below is what the standard Manor Shed looks like.  We’ll post pics (as soon as we can) of the custom designed “build-on-site” shed we just completed.
