green shed


Here at A-1 Concrete Leveling and Foundation Repair, we help our Nashville clients with a wide range of projects — including pouring concrete slabs for new sheds! In today’s blog post, we’re sharing a few reasons why getting a shed is a great idea. If you’re persuaded and ready to add one to your backyard, call us to pour you a strong foundation. And if you’ve got a shed already that you’re demolishing and just need foundation repair, we can do that too. 


Is your house feeling smaller than it really is? Do you have stuff everywhere? Is your basement filling up with boxes and you don’t know where to put them? Adding a shed gives you a lot more storage space, and it’s a great place to put items that are cluttering your home or garage. It’s a great place to put seasonal gear like sleds or yard tools.

Create A Workspace

Whether you’re a woodworker, welder, or gardener, a shed is a great place to store your tools and give you a dedicated place to work. It’s also a good way to partition off projects that can get a little messy. A shed is also a great space for hobbies and can be transformed into just about anything. Create a place to make pottery, knit, write, or anything else you need! The options are endless, and it can become your own personal sanctuary. 

Enjoy The Outdoors

When spring rolls around and you’re ready to set up your patio furniture, it’s a lot more challenging to haul what you need out of the basement or from behind things in your garage. With a shed, those outdoor items are just steps away from your patio — with no stairs to climb! We bet you’ll enjoy the Nashville sun much more when you have the convenience of a shed!

Give Your Kids Space To Play

You can get a shed in all shapes and sizes, including a miniature house for kids. Match your home’s interior, give it gingerbread trim, paint it bright pink — the options are endless. And when you have the kids home all summer, it’ll be way easier to convince them to get off the couch and go outside when they’ve got a dedicated place to play. Plus, it’s a place to play even when the weather’s bad. 

Add Value To Your Home

Having a shed can add value to your home, giving you the opportunity to make more money when/if you decide to sell. And it’s a way more affordable option than creating an addition or putting in a garage. 

Keep Things Out Of Sight

A shed is a great place to store the things you need that aren’t the most attractive. Stash your old lawnmower or dirty gardening tools in a shed. If you put a lock on the door you can trust that they’ll be safe and sound.
