A Buyer’s Guide to Outdoor Sheds and Garages – Part Two

In part one of our two-part feature about common models of outdoor storage buildings, we discussed our most popular models of sheds and barns: utility sheds, barns, lofted barns, cabin sheds, and lean-to sheds. Our ability to custom build structures to the customer’s specifications means that we can turn any one of our basic models into a unique building suited for just about any purpose.

In this second part, we’ll showcase some of the larger buildings we offer: garages, carports, and wide-load buildings. We even have some novel outdoor structures you might not have considered before—all available and fully-financed from BackYard Storage.


A metal garage is the perfect solution for storing vehicles of all sorts—from lawncare equipment, to motorcycles and ATVS, all the way up to full-sized utility vehicles and boats. Garages also make ideal workshops and maintenance bays, and they provide tons of storage space. Featuring classic garage doors or roll-up doors, our garages are attractive, sturdy, and secure.

Shelter your valuable vehicles from weather and accidental damage with a pre-engineered steel carport or clear-span building. Our carports protect against sun, hail, and heavy winds, while giving you easy access to your car, truck, boat, or RV. We provide financing for carports up to 48 ft. in length and 42 ft. in width.

Wide Load Buildings

We often get requests for customized buildings that exceed standard dimensions. The Department of Transportation considers any storage building over 12 ft. wide (measured from eave to eave) as a “wide load,” but we can custom build and finance structures as large as 16 ft. by 40 ft. (with runners).

You may not know it, but BackYard Storage can finance and build all sorts of unique outdoor structures that aren’t your typical shed or garage, including such things as: decks, gazebos, greenhouses, chicken coops and livestock shelters, as well as playhouses and playsets for the kids.
