Tool shed Guide

Of the toolshed

On toolshed is a shed, respectively. a small building in which work tools, in particular garden Toolsand other gardening materials, stored and stored. It does not only serve as a storage or storage room, but also as a shelter in rain or thunderstorms. The shed is a kind of hut, so a single-storey, built in a simple design and with often inexpensive materials building. In Upper German it is called Schopf and in Bavaria Schupfen. Originally such wooden huts were built. This is inexpensive, but still stable and robust. However, there are other options today, such as metal or plastic.

Of the toolshed wooden

The most commonly built and purchased toolshed are made of wood. The reason is not only the historical development, or that wood is easy to work with, inexpensive and robust, but also the naturalness. Especially in the garden, the proximity to nature is the most important, which is why a toolshed Made of natural materials, visually, best suited and fits in the overall picture, especially in wood species with beautiful grain. If high-quality wood is used in the construction, in conjunction with a good impregnation, wooden tool sheds are just as durable as buildings made of stone. Particularly weather-resistant types of wood are softwoods, such as larch or spruce. They are very rich in resin, affordable and are very suitable for the wood tool shed. The comparatively inexpensive and fast construction of a tool shed made of wood is also a great advantage. There are two ways to build a wooden tool shed. Either the shed itself is built by organizing and processing all materials individually, or a prefabricated kit is purchased.

The prefabricated kit: The wooden tool shed in log construction

Especially popular is the blockboard construction. For this purpose, multilayer glued individual lamellae or square lumbers are used. The wood is already dried here. The log cabins look rustic, are particularly stable and ensure a perfect seal. Different shapes are possible and the selection is very large. Whether with or without terrace, step, saddle or pent roof, hexagonal, or simply square, open or closed. The possibilities are numerous and the design has no limits.

The tool shed made of wood and its disadvantages

A disadvantage, which is mentioned again and again, is the need for care. As robust and weather-resistant as wood may be, it is still a natural product that is not automatically protected against weathering. All the more important is the impregnation right at the beginning. A regular glaze also contributes to longevity. In addition, a foundation should not be missing, so that the moisture from below does not reach the wood.

The stable and recyclable tool shed made of plastic

Sheds made of plastic are usually a little smaller and are often used as a tool shed. Here the functionality is in the foreground. A tool shed made of plastic brings many advantages. It is recyclable, stable, uncomplicated, low in care and weather resistant. They do not rust, they do not rot and do not form mold. In addition, plastic is UV-resistant. The cleaning and care is very easy and quickly done with a rag and water. In addition, they are easy to set up, with the help of a plug-in system, and inexpensive. The disadvantage here is the optical aspect. A tool shed made of plastic does not fit so well into the natural picture of a garden landscape, and therefore often acts as a foreign body. Color-contrasting door frames and windows, as well as muted colors, such as brown, or green, make the tool shed made of plastic look a little more natural.

The tool shed made of metal

The tool shed made of metal is particularly functional, durable and inexpensive. The material is hot-dip galvanized, and therefore absolutely weather-resistant. Rusting is not possible here because the baked powder coating protects against corrosion, as long as the hinges and screw connections are made of stainless steel. Attention should be paid to this when buying. Metal tool sheds, just like those made of plastic, do not have to be painted. Another advantage of the material is the dimensional stability. Particularly advantageous are built-in sliding doors, which can be opened even in winter, in frost, without problems and save space. Similar to the tool shed made of plastic, the tool shed made of metal acts more like a foreign body in the garden. When building, make sure to install sufficient ventilation, so that a good indoor climate prevails. Not only equipment, but also upholstered furniture and other textiles can be stored without being damaged.
