Portable Garage, Shed Builder Moves to New Location

Over the past two weeks, Sheds Unlimited left the fifth-generation family farm in Gap to occupy their new portable garage and shed building facility in Morgantown, Pennsylvania, the company reports.

After months of building and preparation, the company has made the final move from the farm which Sheds Unlimited called home for many years.

The company owners say they are excited about the increased exposure at their new facility, which is just off Route 23 and near the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Morgantown.

The growing family shed and garage business was launched on the farm in 1989 when Steve Stoltzfus Sr.’s five sons needed work, and he was looking for extra income to support his struggling dairy.

Building portable garages and sheds began in a small implement shed that still stands and later above the dairy facility on the farm. Then it was a 5,400-square-foot building that was built to accommodate the small business.

At first, father and sons built portable sheds and portable garages and delivered within about 50 miles of their farm in Lancaster County. For a few years, manufacturing was moved to Honey Brook due to township regulations but later returned when the zoning rules made room for small farm businesses.

Times have changed and the business has grown substantially since 1989.

“Two main things changed the trajectory of the company,” says Chris Stoltzfus, former owner, son of the founder and now the marketing director for Sheds Unlimited at E-Impact Marketing. “The first was a launch into internet marketing and, as a result of that exposure, a growing demand for customized structures. The two combined to propel Sheds Unlimited to become one of the most diversified garage and shed builders in Lancaster County.”

What started as a small portable garage and portable shed company south of the village of White Horse today employs 30-plus people and delivers portable garages, sheds, two car garages, three car garages, four car garages, and a host of customized structures within 300 miles of their location.
