16×24 Shed Uses
16×24 sheds give you plenty of width and depth to work with. 384 sq. ft. of space gives you all the room you need for the things you love to do. Or, it provides an abundance of room for vehicle storage, recreation or active workshop use. With a depth of 24 feet a shed of this size can be ideal for storing longer large items like canoes, kayaks, ladders or even sailboats. If you have a boat that needs winter storage, this is a good size to consider. You could easily park 6 average sized ATVs inside and still have room to walk between them and plenty of room in the back for all of your tools and a workbench. This is a great size for a large ‘maker’ shed because there is so much room to store raw materials, build, then store finished product. Many people have used sheds of this size to start a business right in their back yard. On the east coast, where craftsmen continue to build boats by hand, a shed of this size can be ideal for that application.
Will a 16×24 Shed Fit in My Yard?
To determine the right size of your shed, you need to have a clear idea about its intended purpose. Will it be for storage or active use? Or, both? Another important factor is what size and shape will best fit the specific features and size of your back yard. For example, how large is the yard, how many trees are on the property or how hilly is the property? Sometimes, it’s not just about the number of acres of your property – it’s how much level ground is on the property because if the ground is not level or close to level you may require a more complicated foundation or site preparation before shed installation can occur.
