Looking at getting a building/shed put in our back yard. Nothing fancy. I've found affordablewoodsheds.com out of Houston. The are pretty reasonable. Does anyone else have any recommendations for a turnkey style job like they offer?

I'll have to look on there. It's a residential location so space is limited to a 4ft gate. What I like about affordable sheds is they build it on site.

We have a Graceland 10x12 Garden style. I could have found something cheaper but when we moved here last year the movers put everything on the back porch/patio. I needed something fast and the few local places we checked they were able to deliver the quickest so they won.

Look at Leland's also. I believe there are a couple of dealerships in your general part of the state. I'm reading good things about them. Their products look good in person.

I just had a 8'x8' TuffShed built in my back yard. They are great buildings that will last.

If you have room, get one bigger than you think you need. Mine, 12x18 was here when I purchased the house.

Lelands did mine, built on-site because I have an 8ft gate. I believe I paid just over 5000 then added spray foam for 500. Good product, good materials.

Very good craftsmanship and they build right on your property. I looked around at everyone and settled on them and I'm glad that I did.

Buy a nice used one from someone that needs or wants to get rid of it and have it moved if you have time to look. You'll save some cash I've bought 2 off of here

Think I have $550-600 in this one
http://discussions.texasbowhunter.co...d.php?t=636788

And $950 in this one
http://discussions.texasbowhunter.co...d.php?t=588643

Definitely save cash for those sizes search Craigslist they pop up

Im glad you posted this! I am in the similar situation and been looking at the same company. I talked to them last week about getting a 10x20 built. We plan to add a 6 foot roll up door on one end 8 foot "porch" roof along the side. I think there prices are decent and i havent found a lot of bad reviews on them.

I would definately have one moved in if i could but it needs to be built on site. Hopefully someone has some personal experience with this company or recomindation for another.

Yes Sir! Unless your yard is too small or you don't want to block a view? Build the biggest shed you can afford. You will not regret it. If you can afford it? Build a metal building with a concrete floor and have it well above grade.

Another recommendation would be Summerwood. I've seen a lot of models on their website. Feel free to give them a look.

He built a shed for me. Same deal, I'm in residential with a 4 foot gate so I was limited in what I could move there. He came in the morning and unloaded the materials and built it that day. I painted it and it still looks great after 1.5 years. I would use him again.

I think I've narrowed it down to a 12 X 20 from affordable sheds out of La Porte. I orignally wanted a 12 X 16, but think I'm going to go for the extra 4ft and 8ft walls.

I can get a 12 x 20, 8ft walls, ramp, window, and roll up door. All built in 1 days for $3175.
