Cool things you can do with a garden shed


If you are getting a new shed, don’t use it, or simply want to reuse it a few ways, there are several things you can do with the space. These are a few ideas for using your garden shed, in a manner other than its original intended purpose.

Allow the kids to have play dates with friends. Put up a few items they like, some games, let them paint the walls or put up decorations in the space. This will make it their own space, and it will get them out of your house during the long summer months, so you know they are doing something productive.

If you are a DIYer, you can fix your car in the shed. Install a car lift or other accessories. Or, you can make it a storage space (such as a second garage) if you want to keep the car out of the sun and winter weather.

For those who need a space to play cards with friends, this is the ideal solution. You can set up a few poker tables, chairs, and its close enough to the home that you can go in when you need snacks.

You can add a projector to the room, a couple couches, and make it a mini family room. Installing air conditioning and heating would be easy to do if the shed is close enough to the home as well. Although this might be a little more expensive, it is a fun way to bring the family together.

There are a number of things you can do when you are trying to find alternate uses for your garden shed. Maybe you are looking to purchase a new shed, or maybe you have bought one and are looking for a few ideas on what you could do with your garden shed. If you’re not sure how to do it yourself then you should consider hiring a handyman to erect a garden shed. These are a few quick fixes and simple solutions that everyone in the home would enjoy when it comes to those unused space.

    When I was growing up my friends and I always wanted a shed to meet up in this was because we watched a television programme called the doubt deckers, where they met in an old bus

    I’m currently thinking about getting rid of my shed. I like having it but it’s in poor condition and was never great. I’m thinking about replacing it though with some kind of garden room. Thanks for the ideas.

    I would love a She-shed as an outdoor/indoor space for me (and the fam when invited) to be able to chill out and work from. The kids have already taken over the house so this would be my sacred toy/game free zone 🙂
