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.

This month, September 2010, Fox’s Country Sheds is offering a FREE ridgevent with any shed purchase of 8×12 or larger. Mention this offer to any Fox’s Country Sheds sales rep to receive your free ridgevent!

Not sure what a ridgevent does or if it is needed on your shed?  Below is an interesting article on how a ridgevent works when installed in your home.  The principles are the same for why a ridge vent is important in your shed.

A ridgevent, when properly installed, will allow the hot air that collects to escape as it rises in your shed (hot air rises!).  Since sheds are generally not as tall as homes, there isn’t a whole lot of area for the hot air to collect, making some sheds too hot to want to spend much time in there.

Allowing the hot air to escape will also extend the life of your shingles, something that we highly recommend even though the shingles used by Fox’s Country Sheds in each and every building are all 30-Year shingles.  Hot, moist air collecting under your roofing sheathing is not very healthy for your shed.

Along with the hot air, a ridgevent will allow fumes from your gas powered lawn equipment to escape.  So, if the hot air doesn’t bother you too much, consider the fumes collecting in your backyard shed from your lawn tractor.

A ridge vent is particularly important to include when considering options for your shed when you will be using your structure as a Garden Office or Workshop.  In this case, you may even consider upgrading to vented soffits along with a ridgevent for a fully ventilated shed or garage.

To learn more about ridgevents, read the article below.  And to order your 8×12 shed with a FREE ridgevent during the month of September 2010, click on our website at www.FoxSheds.com .

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

Full Glass Shed Doors

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 .
