5 Reasons Why A Shed Is A Great Investment

Sheds are a great investment for any homeowner or property owner, as they offer a wide range of benefits and uses. Here are Totalspan’s top 5 reasons why a shed is a great investment.

1. Extra storage space

One of the main reasons people invest in a shed is for extra storage space. A shed can be used to store tools, equipment, and other outdoor items that may not fit in the garage. This can help to declutter your home and make it more functional.

2. Additional living space

With a little creativity, a shed can be transformed into a functional and stylish space that can be used for a variety of purposes. For example, it can be converted into an office, a workshop, or a recreational space. This can be a great option for those who need extra living space but don't want to go through the expense and hassle of adding on to their home.



3. Increased property value

A well-built and well-maintained shed can also add value to your property. It can be used to enhance the overall appearance of your property, making it more attractive to potential buyers if you decide to sell.


4. Cost-effective

Compared to other home improvement projects, sheds are relatively inexpensive to construct. Steel is generally more affordable than its timber counterparts. Not only is steel generally cheaper but some of our Totalspan buildings only need a few builders onsite to build a shed which could also save you additional labour costs. This makes them a cost-effective option for those on a budget.

5. Versatility

Sheds are also versatile and can be used for more than just storage. They can be used for hobbies, such as woodworking, gardening, or even as an artist studio. They can also be used as an additional workspace for a home-based business or as a rental space for extra income.


A shed is a great investment for any homeowner or property owner. It offers extra storage space, additional living space, increased property value, cost-effective and versatility. With a little creativity and a well-built and well-maintained shed, you can enjoy many benefits and uses that can enhance your property and improve your quality of life.
