Storage Building Add-Ons: Designing the Perfect Shed

By SchwebAdmin

Are you looking for a storage shed, cabin, or garage with some extra features? Perhaps you don’t know about all of the optional features you can add onto your storage building. Either way, this guide from Raber Storage Barns will help you understand all of the add-ons for our buildings so that you can customize your design to fit your needs.

Electrical Package

Adding an electrical package to your shed, cabin, or detached garage can greatly enhance its functionality and convenience. Our standard electrical package includes a breaker box, interior GFCI outlets, interior light fixtures, and light switches. For those looking for even more, our premium packages also come with exterior outlets and light fixtures. Once delivered, the only thing left to do is connect your building to the main power line.

Benefits of Electrical Packages

Having an electrical package in your storage building allows you to work comfortably any time of day, regardless of natural light. Interior light fixtures ensure you can see clearly, while GFCI outlets offer safe, reliable power for tools and appliances. Exterior outlets and light fixtures can be especially useful for outdoor work or security purposes. With an electrical package, your storage shed transforms into a functional workspace.

Insulation Package

Insulating your shed, cabin, or garage can provide numerous benefits, making your space more comfortable and energy-efficient year-round. Our insulation package features high-quality spray foam insulation, which outperforms other types of shed insulation for several reasons.

Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation provides superior thermal resistance, helping to maintain a consistent temperature inside your building. This is particularly beneficial if you use your shed or cabin as a workshop, office, or hobby space. Additionally, spray foam insulation is excellent at sealing gaps and cracks, preventing drafts, moisture, and pests from entering.

Cupolas and Other Ventilation

Proper ventilation is crucial for any storage building to prevent moisture buildup, which can cause mold or mildew growth. At Raber Storage Barns, we offer several ventilation options, including a decorative and functional cupola, ridge vents, and louvered vents.

Benefits of Shed Ventilation

Ventilation helps to regulate the temperature and moisture levels inside your shed or cabin, preventing mold, mildew, and wood rot. Cupolas, for instance, are both stylish and effective, providing an elegant look while allowing hot air to escape. Ridge vents run along the peak of the roof, offering continuous airflow, while louvered vents are placed on the wall. With the right ventilation, your storage building remains dry and in good condition.

Workshop Options

Transform your shed or garage into a fully equipped workshop with our tailored workshop options. Our workshop options include sturdy workbenches, shelving, and pegboards. By outfitting your shed with these workshop features, you create an efficient, organized environment perfect for any hobby or project.

Benefits of Workshop Add-Ons

Workbenches provide a solid surface for all your tasks, from woodworking to repairs. Shelving units maximize vertical storage space, keeping tools and materials organized and accessible. Pegboards offer flexible storage for smaller tools and accessories, making it easy to customize your workspace to suit your needs. These additions can help you keep your garage free of clutter and provide a dedicated space for your projects.

garden shed with extra doors and windows

Extra Doors & Windows

Enhance the accessibility and natural light in your storage building by adding extra doors and windows. These additions not only improve functionality but also contribute to the aesthetic appeal of your shed or garage. We offer various door options, including standard single doors, double doors for wider access, and even roll-up garage doors for vehicles. Our window options include standard windows, skylights for overhead light, and transom windows for a unique touch.

Benefits of Extra Doors & Windows

Extra doors provide additional entry points, making it easier to move large items in and out. With more entry points, you can design a layout that works best for your needs. Adding more windows allows for increased natural light, creating a brighter and more inviting interior. Natural light can make your shed or workshop more pleasant to work inside and can reduce the need for artificial lighting during the day.
