In early Feb when it was too cold and wet to do anything outside I was wandering thru one of the BORG’s and happened to take a look at their storage shed display. I found that they could build out to a 16’ x 24’ building. I went home measured out 16×24 in my garage. While my garage was about 6’ wider and 5’ deeper my tools would fit in a building 16’ by 24’ and I would no longer have to move vehicles in and out and tools around to work. To keep the BORGS from getting their cut I visited Tuffsheds and StorMor and got estimates from them on a 16’ x 24’ building on a concrete slab. I went home measured out where I wanted to put the slab found I had plenty of room. I talked to the power company found that to bring power from my existing service on my house to another building would require upgrading to a larger wire from the transformer to the house. My subdivision has all underground utilities the cost of doing that was prohibitive. The back of my lot has a 10’ easementand an overhead powerline. The cost of a transformer and overhead service to a building (the existing power pole was 15’ away) was well within my budget. I just needed to remove a small tree.
This is the site cleared and waiting for the slab.
I decided to go with StorMor they gave me a quote with the slab and followed up. Tuff Shed couldn’t or Wouldn’t give me a price on the slab and their concrete contractor never followed up. (StorMor’s price with the slab was less than Tuff Shed without a slab.) I called the power company had them hang a transformer and sheduled StorMor in to start as soon as power company had the transformer hung.
transformer going in.
Once the slab cured and forms were removed. StorMor came in and in a day this is what I had.
