One Way to Avoid Becoming a Hoarder

We’ve all seen those television shows about people who hoard so much that their houses literally start to fall down around them. It can be easy to accumulate things, and if you don’t have a lot of space in your home it can pile up pretty quickly. Maybe your wife collects recipe magazines and Hummel figurines or maybe you refuse to let go of your extensive baseball card collection (because one of those will be worth thousands someday). Add this to all of the things your kids accumulate in gifts or things that they insist they need, and your home can get cluttered really quickly, which can be a very slippery slope. Once the hoard starts, it’s hard to stop it.

One of the first things you need to do to get the hoard under control or to keep one from starting is to invest in some more space. Rather than building an addition onto your house, getting a shed or detached garage is a good way to create a new space for your less used things that you can’t get rid of.

Rather than looking for cheap discount sheds, you’ll need one that is sturdy and well constructed to make sure that the contents of the shed will be protected from the elements. The Amish are famous for their craftsmanship and design (for example, Adirondack chairs), which might be why they are so popular. Amish sheds are generally built completely out of wood, and since they are built by hand rather than manufactured in a factory there are more options for custom design. Custom sheds and garages are perhaps more ideal since they can be built to the exact size and dimensions you need. Amish sheds can also be built from different types of wood to match the exterior of your home. Good refereneces: www.amishmike.com
