Adding a 12×20 Shed In Your Backyard: Everything You Need To Know

A 12×20 storage shed is the perfect addition to any backyard. It’s big enough to store your lawnmower, gardening tools, sports equipment and more while being small enough to fit on a smaller property space.

A 12×20 shed can also be easily modified depending on what you need it for. In this blog post we will go over everything you need to know about adding a 12×20 storage shed in your backyard.

What Is the Shed Made Of?


Wood sheds are the most traditional choice for a backyard shed and can be built with either tongue-and-groove or board-and-batten construction. The former allows for more flexibility in design.


Metal sheds are typically made from galvanized steel panels that come with pre-drilled holes where screws go through them; as such, they don’t require any cutting on your part—which makes them easy enough that even those without any building experience can put them together without difficulty (although some preassembly is usually required).

While they’re generally more expensive than wood sheds due to their greater strength and durability against weathering effects like rainwater damage over time, metal sheds are also lighter weight than their wooden counterparts so less work goes into moving them around once finished building them too.


Aluminum has become increasingly popular as an alternative material because its lower cost allows homeowners who might otherwise not be able to afford metal’s higher price tag access

Advantages of a 12×20 Storage Shed

Your 12×20 storage shed can serve many purposes. It can be used for storage, but it could also be used as a workshop or even a home office. Not only will you save money on space by using your backyard shed rather than renting a storage unit, but you’ll also declutter your house and save room in the garage.
