  1. Backyard Getaway: Turn an Outdoor Storage Building into a Man Cave

    Backyard Getaway: Turn an Outdoor Storage Building into a Man Cave
    There’s an old saying that a man’s home is his castle. Truth be told, it really isn’t. If you’re a married man, it means you share your home with your wife, and most likely your kids. That means you can’t hang your posters in the living room, which is probably overrun with children’s toys. You may no longer have privacy in your home, so why not gain your own space with a man cave in your backyard? You can convert a portable garage, shed, or other outdoor storage building into your own backyard getaway. All it takes to build a backyard man cave is some creativity and ingenuity. Once you assemble it, your backyard man cave can be the home-away-from-home you’ve always dreamed of.

  8. How to Build a Shed Foundation

    How to Build a Shed Foundation

    When investing in an outdoor storage solution, you want it to last for years to come. That’s why it’s important to maintain your shed to ensure the belongings inside are safe through rough weather. One of the most important things to do is to make sure you have a solid shed foundation. Without one, you are leaving the base, walls and valuables vulnerable.

    Before Creating Your Shed Foundation

    Before you decide what type of material you want to use as the shed foundation, you should consider purchasing a base kit for your Arrow shed. They come in multiple sizes, and allow for a level start. Other Arrow base kit benefits include:
    • Constructed with durable galvanized steel
    • Easy installation
    • Keeps building off the ground
    Pro Tip: Arrow recommends installing a continuous vapor barrier 6 mil. thick between the ground and the base to keep moisture to a minimum.


    Popular Shed Foundation Materials

    How do you know what type of material to use for your shed foundation? It depends on your particular needs. According to Zac’s garden, the most popular foundations are:
    • Gravel- This type of foundation is not only cost effective, it is relatively easy to install. If you are planning on ever moving the finished shed, a gravel foundation is easier to move than other options.
    • Pavers- This choice is for more compact sheds, and are simple to secure at a fraction of the cost of other choices.
    • Wood- This is a simple and durable choice that provides a strong platform for your shed.
    • Concrete- This type of base is an ultra-strong and durable choice. It won’t shift, and acts as a permanent foundation for your shed.
    If you’ve decided to go with a base kit, all you have to do from here is finish up with your chosen flooring which you can purchase separately. If you're investing in an Arrow Storage Products shed, we recommend that you check out our informative section on foundations to help you set your own shed foundation, here. shed foundation

    When to Use a Floor Frame Kit

    Many people ask the difference between a floor frame kit and a base kit.... Think of the base kit as a framework that you put together before you build your shed foundation. It helps you to create your level base. So, what is a floor frame kit? It is considered the last step, and gives you the frame
