Metal outdoor storage sheds are another common inexpensive option. These sometimes come fully assembled but you can also buy do it yourself kits for them if youd prefer. Metal has a tendency to get dents in it over time and it rusts with prolonged exposure to various weather conditions. Because of this a similar style of storage sheds is growing in popularity but these use vinyl instead of metal.
The type of outdoor storage boxes you choose will depend on what you need to store and what the climate is like where you live. Outdoor boxes will generally have to withstand lengthy exposure to the sun as well as other elements like rain wind and even snow. Waterproofing is a major concern as you dont want either the box or its contents to be ruined by water damage. Generally plastic and fiberglass offer the best waterproofing allowing them to withstand even the most extreme elements.
There are some gorgeous outdoor wood shed designs these days though. Some of them rival the beauty of a guest house or outdoor office and they have all sorts of built in shelves closets and other nooks that make organizing your outdoor tools a pleasure. Wooden storage sheds usually need to be assembled but you can often buy ready-made kits which have everything you need conveniently packaged together. Alternatively you can buy outdoor storage shed building plans instead then buy the materials for your shed at a local hardware or home improvement store.
While exposure to sunlight can bleach wood some people actually like that look so it isnt a huge issue but durability can be. Despite careful waterproofing wood remains highly porous and can still be damaged by water over time. Another option for outdoor storage is aluminum or wrought iron. Wrought iron is most often used in the garden and can be quite decorative. It is extremely durable able to endure rain snow or sun but it is also extremely heavy making it very difficult to move.
