12×24 Wood Sheds Common Uses
Whether you have plans to use your 12×24 shed for simple storage, vehicle storage, or recreation space, 288 square feet of space gives you the room to do it. You could park 4 average-sized ATVs inside and still have room to walk between them, plus plenty of room in the back for all of your tools and a workbench. This is a great size for a large ‘maker’ shed because there is so much room to store raw materials, build, tinker, and store the finished product.
Many people have used sheds of this size to start a business right in their backyards. But, it’s also perfect for recreation and social gatherings. If you’re looking to have enough space to host friends in a game room, bar, or extra living room, a 12×24 shed is perfect. Also, consider barn-style sheds that offer overhead storage space for lofts if you want to make your outdoor storage shed a multi-use space.
Make the Most of Your 12×24 Wood Shed
First, decide what you want to do with your 12×24 shed. When you are looking for a shed this large, you may already have a grand plan, like making your shed into a second home or an office. But then how do you execute such a big undertaking?
The Barn Shed from Heartland Sheds is available in the 12×24 size, and it has many features that will fulfill your needs. This classic style will fit any yard, and you can customize the color you paint your wood shed. The Barn Shed looks like a barn, with a gable roof, extra-wide double doors, a window to let in light, decorative door hinges, and a 4 ft deep storage loft. Add hooks or shelves to the walls of the shed for even more organization and storage. There are so many ways to use this space, we can’t list them all here! But you’ll soon find that this large shed is not only for storage – it’s a place where you’ll want to spend time.
How to Determine if a 12×24 Shed Will Fit In Your Yard
To determine the size of your shed, you need to have a clear idea about its intended purpose. Will it be for storage or active use like woodworking? Or, both? Another important factor is what size and shape will fit the specific features and size of your backyard best. For example, how large is the yard? How many trees are on the property? How hilly is the property? Sometimes, it’s not just about the number of acres of your property – it’s how much level ground is on the property. If the ground is not level, you may require a more complicated foundation or site preparation before 12×24 shed installation can occur.
