A wooden shed is the most traditional sort of drop and can be completely customized to make a very specific size or shape. They can also easily be customized inside, also. A number of cabinets and shelves can be hung from the walls and the overhead attic areas to provide additional storage area. However, unless you complete the interior of a wooden shed with real walls and a ceiling, the inside is going to have an “unfinished” look with exposed wood beams and braces that make it even more difficult to clean and can more easily attract unwanted bugs.

Wooden shed kits are more expensive than metal or resin shed kits of a similar size. And, while wood is a really strong material, it’s also very vulnerable. The paint finish on wooden sheds will also fade and peel over time that will require repainting and other upkeep.

Based on where you shop and what manufacturer you’re thinking about, resin sheds might also be called plastic sheds, vinyl sheds, or high-density polyethylene sheds. (Lifetime sheds are made from high-density polyethylene.) Resin sheds are the latest kind of sheds on the market and are rapidly becoming the most popular choice of shed for many reasons.

For ultimate strength and endurance, some producers such as Lifetime also use integrated steel supports and a double-wall – versus only a single-wall-resin panel structure.
