But at Juniper, we are here to tell you that a shed in Wisconsin is really more of a necessity. There are so many uses for a quality storage shed, it pushes from the level of something nice you could have to something wonderful you should have — especially if you live in the harsh climate of Wisconsin.

There’s never truly enough storage at home. Whether you want to free up your garage, basement, closets or other storage areas, storage will be the most obvious use for a new wooden shed. Most people who purchase an outdoor building do so to have extra room to store the things they use or need. You can keep anything from tools, to wood, to items you are not currently using in your home there.

The thing that makes a storage shed necessary in Wisconsin are the harsh winters we can experience here. With crazy snowstorms and heavy snow loads that come up, you never know if you may lose power.

If you have a wood burning fireplace, you of course need somewhere dry to store the firewood to use throughout the winter. It also makes a wonderful place to store other emergency supplies you may have along these lines. You can never be too prepared for such an event.
