The side yard is often where AC units, electrical meters, and garbage cans find refuge, but you can also use the side yard for covered storage, making it useful and attractive. For people with a wide side yard, you can put in a large storage unit like this 6′x12′ shed, but even those with a narrow side yard can get a nice bit of storage that looks good.
A narrow storage shed against the house still allows ample passage. It also blocks views of the garbage cans and utilities.
This 3′x7′ shed features a shed roof with exposed rafter tails, cypress siding and trim, and cypress beadboard doors with heavy duty hinges.
Wide paired doors on the shed allows easy access to the interior.
