Vinyl or Custom What Kind of Shed Should I Buy?

Vinyl sheds are easy to find and maintain, but plastic finishes lack the character that some consumers want. While you could simply pick up a plastic shed at your local hardware or big box store, some consumers opt for a little more pizzazz. Of course, handmade furniture can be expensive, but it is often crafted with the utmost quality assurance that mass-manufactured vinyl sheds lack. When looking for a functional piece of furniture to invest in, most customers agree that they want the piece to reflect their personalities.

Plastic or vinyl storage sheds are made to last a lifetime, and will not react to water poorly, as some woods may. They are also significantly cheaper, but may not offer the right amount of storage or quite the look you desire.

Amish furniture adds a rustic element to any space and has been in-style since its “discovery” in the 1920s. All Amish furniture is hand-crafted and can be customized to suit the needs and style of the consumer. The building materials can be finished to match the owner’s landscaping or home siding, giving the space a seamless flow.

While custom sheds are expensive to come by, the quality of the building material stands up to wear and tear. Custom Amish furnishings are made from many varieties of wood, usually oak, cherry, hickory, walnut or maple. These materials are highly durable, and the space can be manipulated or renovated in a way that all storage needs are met.

A wooden shed will last about 15 to 20 years, at least, if it is well maintained. It is good to keep in mind, however, that when you opt for custom furniture, you will not be able to take it home right away. Amish furniture takes about eight weeks just to make, not including sourcing the materials, processing the request, shipping, or payment. After all is said and done, you could end up waiting between 12 and 16 weeks for your custom Amish shed.

When it comes down to it, buying a custom wooden shed it a long-term decision, and requires a fair amount of planning. If you’re looking for an immediate storage fix, you can find some very high-quality vinyl sheds all over the place, but if you’re looking to spend big bucks, you can’t go wrong with something that you commission and design yourself.
