Are you concerned about your vehicles or garden equipment? Do you worry that they could be damaged by the elements if left outdoors, or even worse, they could be a target for thieves looking to make a quick buck?

If you said yes, what you need is a shed or garage. A shed is a building used to store home and garden tools and equipment such as lawn tractors and gardening supplies. In addition, sheds can be used to store items that are not suitable for indoor storage, such as petrol (gasoline), pesticides, or herbicides. Similarly, a garage protects a vehicle from precipitation, and if it is equipped with a locking garage door, it additionally protects the vehicle from theft and vandalism.

Generally, sheds start at $2000 and go up to $7000 depending on size. However, if this addition to your home was not planned in advance, we understand that high prices can be a hurdle. This being said, at Morinville Colony Sheds And Garages, we believe it is well worth the investment. We think that with a little bit of planning, research and scrutiny, you can have the shed or garage you need without breaking the bank. So you do not get overwhelmed, we have made a guide to planning and purchasing a shed on a budget.

Check your local regulations
Your area’s local building codes are the minimum design and construction requirements to ensure safe and resilient structures. These regulations reduce casualties, costs, and damage by creating stronger buildings designed to withstand disasters. Hence, the first step is to check your local building codes and zoning laws that pertain to your project.

Choose the right size and style
Next, it is time to draw a plan for your shed. This plan should take into consideration the function and location of the structure you plan on constructing. You will also need to think about size and style, so the new shed fits your home’s aesthetic and offers maximum convenience.

Email the plans for the project to a professional
As we have the unique ability to manufacture custom portable sheds and garages that fit any specific need, it would be in your best interest to email your drawing to us with all the information and the location to which it needs to be delivered. This way, we can match all colors, materials, gauges, and profiles to your existing buildings. Our trained salesperson will do onsite visits to assure the accuracy of all materials and colors.

Wait for a quote and place your order
Now comes the fun part. Once you have contacted us, we will get back to you with a quote that is both affordable and reasonable. If you are satisfied with what we have proposed, it is time to place your order. During this time, you will also pick colors for all siding, shingles, and materials.

Expect delivery
The structure will come to you on 4“ x 6” pressure-treated, fully assembled, built exactly how you ordered it, on the back of a tilt deck trailer. Once offloaded from the trailer, it will be moved into your yard with a shed mover and placed on the ideal outdoor structure foundation. Another point to remember is that as we take care of delivery, transport costs are kept to the minimum, which significantly benefits our clients. With this in mind, we actually suggest you go 25% bigger, as the space will fill up fast and this is your chance to plan for the best future.
