Three Cool Things About Amish Sheds That Will Impress Your Friends When You Buy One
The worst thing about sheds is that they can be an eyesore and totally throw off the look of a property. We’ve all seen those sheds, unsightly with their metal roofs or improper size, their mass manufactured look. What you really want is one of those Amish built sheds, but you’re afraid of what your wife and friends will say. Why didn’t you buy a real shed, Tom? Why didn’t you just go to one of the big box stores? Aww what a quaint little shed you got there. Why didn’t you just build one yourself? Here are three reasons to justify buying an Amish shed that will put the haters in their places.
Amish built sheds can be customized
One of the reasons you can justify buying an Amish built shed is that you can get it customized for your specific use. Maybe you have a bunch of lawn care equipment, an obscene number of bicycles and the regrettable Vespa you bought when you went through your hipster phase. All of these things are going to be hard to configure in a shed that wasn’t built specifically to house them.
Amish sheds are hand crafted
Another reason to justify your shed purchase is that Amish shed builders don’t use electricity. That’s right. These are built by hand and without power tools, which is sure to impress the friends you have left over from your hipster phase. I didn’t even get this from Etsy. It’s Amish, you’ve probably never heard of it, you’ll say.
The architectural style is cool
Another cool reason to justify buying an Amish storage shed is that they have unique architectural styles that are hard to find authentically recreated without the mass manufactured look. The two main styles of Amish building are the Shaker and the Mission styles which are both terms you can throw around casually to make yourself seems more knowledgeable and interesting when you’re talking about your new handcrafted shed.
Whatever your reasoning, when it comes down to it these sheds serve a practical purpose. Do you have any other tips for shutting your friends down when they try to patronize you for buying something cool? Let us know in the comments. Great references here.
