Tuff Shed Sells Structure No. 1 Million

Tuff Shed’s 1 millionth shed was installed at Kick Ranch Vineyard in Santa Rosa, California.

At the end of November, Tuff Shed, headquartered in Denver, announced that it built its 1 millionth structure.

It took about 36 years for the company to reach the milestone of 1 million sheds sold. Dick Keenan, a San Francisco resident and owner of Kick Ranch Vineyard in Santa Rosa, California, purchased the shed.

The building was installed on December 2 into its new space at the vineyard. The shed actually serves as a replacement for Keenan’s original Tuff Shed building, which was destroyed by wildfires
in California at the end of 2017.

Keenan purchased his original Tuff Shed building back in 2003 to store tools and supplies for his vineyard. When the
California wildfires ripped through the area, the building and its contents were completely demolished. Yet even after the disastrous past months, Keenan still has a smile on his face.

“All across Sonoma County, we’re rebuilding,” he says. “The wineries are reopened, we’re fixing things, and our local area has really banded together.”

To further celebrate the occasion, Keenan and Tuff Shed CEO Tom Saurey made a joint donation to the Sonoma County Winegrowers’ Association to be used toward its wine workers housing fund.

Keenan’s new building is symbolic of the spirit in Sonoma County since the wildfires tore through the community.

As he proudly says, “Our new motto in this area is ‘Sonoma Strong.’”
