Some Things Our Customers Say

"My wife and I live in a lovely 1920's bungalow in a historic neighborhood in Tampa, Florida. As those who live in bungalows can attest, they aren’t exactly spacious nor do they exactly live up to modern storage standards. We wanted more storage space but we didn’t want to destroy our home’s aesthetic by purchasing a plastic prefab shed. We started contacting shed companies and everyone we talked to couldn’t understand why a faux barn or some composite monstrosity wouldn’t be acceptable nestled among craftsmen, foursquares and cottages. When I contacted Historic Shed they were very excited to take on our project. They asked for a photo of our house, which we were happy to oblige. Within a very short time of receiving our photo, they had sent us a plan for a structure that complemented our house’s architecture and matched the roof pitch and brackets. When Historic Shed received our go ahead they pulled all the permits and made our case with Tampa’s ARC. The process went very smoothly and progressed quickly from approval to construction. The construction time was short and the crew was skilled and very professional. The shed is solid and when our neighbor (who builds luxury homes for a living), came over to see it, he remarked that it was really well constructed. We love our new shed. It’s freed our small house of clutter and we think it’s perfectly at home next to buildings 80 years its senior." - Rob V., Tampa, FL

"Historic shed made some very lovely, historically appropriate, custom screens for our home, at a very reasonable price. Best price I could find anywhere, and they painted them for us and provided us with quality hardware! I'm recommending them to everyone I know." - Heather B., New Orleans, LA

“We had a large group of people visit this weekend. People who had never visited assumed the shed was original to the property; people who knew it was new were amazed that it ‘looks like it’s always been here!’ Good job!” – Randall L., Tampa, FL
“I just finished closing our downstairs windows – we went all morning with no A/C. Just love the screens! Thank you.” – Patricia C., Gainesville, FL

“I live in a bungalow that was built in 1925. When I purchased the house, it had a funky old shed that totally creeped me out to enter. I am a gardener so I had to go in it often to access my supplies. Ick! I decided that I needed something nicer, so I started pricing pre-built sheds. They were expensive, not historic & UGLY. I had some plans drawn for a shed & got some prices for all the trades I would need- carpenter, roofer, painter- for a tiny shed! It all added up to too much plus, I had just completed the restoration of a 1907 Victorian & needed a rest. I called Historic Shed & was happily surprised at the price they quoted for everything! Because of their great reputation, I even let them pick the hardware & design the doors. I never let anybody choose for me but I was tired of making choices. I was thrilled with the doors & the wonderful hinges they brought. The best part was that it was installed in just over a day. I am sure that it would have been a month long project with all the trade co-ordinating that would have had to have been done to built it. I now have a shed that is the mini-me version of my beautiful bungalow. It holds everything I need & it is clean & fresh. I am looking forward to another season of gardening so I can visit it!” – Suzanne P., Tampa, FL

"These people are great. My shed (art studio) is beautiful and passed the tough hurricane code requirements with no problems." - Kathy J., Ormond Beach, FL
“Cris and I decided over two years ago to put an old style screen door on the front of the house.  We contracted a carpenter in Brookville FL to make the door in the style of the 1930′s.  Today, we had it installed.  With spring-loaded hinges and door knob and lock, it looks almost original.  The lower screen is reinforced so that our beasts can’t go through the screen.   It even goes BANG!! Come and visit some time and go through the door.” – Stan M. (sent as an email to friends), DeLand, FL
“After being turned down by other screen companies on the list, a friend suggested I call Historic Shed. Jo-Anne responded fast, measured my windows and even helped us decide on historic colors to paint our house (and the screens). The screens are beautiful and solid (much more sturdy than the flimsy aluminum ones we had) and Craig’s paint job adds a nice dash of accent color to the house. The screens are also easy to remove, a plus from the old ones. Based on the quality of the screens and the time it took for Craig to install them, I think the price was more than fair. These guys are good.” – Phil D., St. Petersburg, FL

“I want to tell you again how very pleased we are with everything and how well the whole process worked. You are both great to work with and I hope we were okay for you. The garage is beautiful and I even had a note on my door the other night from someone saying ‘I want to see your garage! Call me…her phone # and name.’ Maybe you will get business from it. Feel free to send people by to see it.” – Linda A., St. Petersburg, FL
