Sticking with Sheds

Those of you who have read my column since its inception back in April 2016 know that I began building sheds in 2003 at the ripe old age of 17. I’d like to share the story of how I became a shed builder with you.
I didn’t grow up planning to be a shed builder.

Q&A: Windows and Accessories

What sets one shed apart from another? For customers looking to make a shed their own, windows and accessories add a personal, unique touch. Shed Builder Magazine communicated with Thomas Slack, a partner in Shed Windows and More in Longs, South Carolina, about shed windows and accessories, and the business, since the company “provides everything you need to build a portable building except the wood.”

Shed Lot Organization/Appearance for Sales

Charles Hutchins operates Shed-N-Carport Pro in Radcliff, Kentucky, and Scott Vallie owns Huntsville Portable Buildings & Carports in Texas. Each uses sales lots to attract customers and sell portable structures built by various manufacturers. And each has found that certain shed placement and lot appearance have an impact on sales.

Software Organization for Sheds

Lost information, inventory that disappears, and orders that go over budget are signs that you need a software package to run your business. From customer relationship management (CRM) and 3D configurators to project management and inventory control, there’s a software for that. And the benefits are out of this world.

A Higher-Quality Customer Experience

Dan Post and Paul Riley got started in the shed-building industry at early ages with Post Woodworking Sheds, which was established in 1962. The company has come a long way, and the changes in Post’s product line has been a natural progression.
