Figuring Out if a 10×20-foot Shed Is the Right Size for Your Needs

When it comes to sheds, we at truPoint Backyards find that the size of the shed is the most common first question. The size is a determining factor not only to the overall cost but also how it’s going to look and fit into your yard. If you’re looking for a bigger shed, you’ll probably want to start by looking at a 10×20-foot shed. Let’s take a step-by-step process to see if this is the right shed for you.

Get a Visual of a 10×20-foot Shed

This will contain 200 square feet of room, which can hold quite a bit once you map the space out. The first thing you should do is walk out the dimensions in your backyard and mark off the space. This way, you can get a true visualization of how much space you will have.

What’s the Primary Use?

If you’re using the shed primarily for storage space, a 10×20-foot shed will hold quite a lot. You can hold a full-size vehicle along with other equipment like riding mowers, snowblowers, all-terrain vehicles, or snowmobiles. You can also have room for storing seasonal equipment like patio furniture or a grill in the winter.

If you’re looking at a shed for more of a recreational space like a man cave, she-shed, or clubhouse for the kids, this is also the perfect size. It will give everyone enough room to be comfortable in their home away from home.

Consider Permits and Zoning Laws

Having a shed of this size could require a building permit. Be sure to check with your local municipality—whether it be a city or a county. You’ll also need to check zoning laws. You may have to keep the structure a certain distance away from your property lines. The last thing you want is to plan and purchase your shed and later find out that there may be legal issues!
