Even though Gerard is not a carpenter by trade, he was amazed at how easily his SteelMaster 12’ x 12’ Storage Shed was to assemble.
SteelMaster Storage Sheds Not only about storage, it’s about safety too. Most of us can attest to how quickly our garages can become filled with overflow from our homes. Few of us, it seems, actually get to use their garage for its originally intended purpose – our vehicles. Most of us succumb to parking in the driveway, or even curbside out on the street. Mr. and Mrs. Gerard Regnier of Fremont, California found their three-car garage getting a bit over-crowded. Gerard realized he did not have ample room anymore for his work shop space for home projects. Even though Gerard is not a carpenter by trade, he was amazed at how easily his SteelMaster 12’ x 12’ Storage Shed was to assemble. Actually, SteelMaster was amazed and applauds Gerard for using up scraps from his Storage Shed kit to help customize the inside of his building. It was easy for the Regniers to ascertain their need for additional storage on their property. Their need was based on an understandable concern over storage of flammables and consumables in a safe and secure area, and not in the garage attached to their home. They also needed something that could be built on a slight grade and not be an eyesore to their property. These concerns are what steered them toward choosing a SteelMaster buildings. Gerard wrote to us and explained how he customized his storage shed: “Thanks largely to SteelMaster’s accurate bill of materials and unique building plan, my building came out great. I designed and constructed a wood floor which fit perfectly to the building. It was easy to anchor securely. Over the doorway opening, I constructed a 4’x10’ overhead storage area. With the high ceiling, there is still plenty of room left to crawl around up there. In the clear arched space on both sides of the doorway opening, I constructed four foot wide storage shelves that go all the way up to overhead storage. I made each shelf following the contours of the inside of the building. Utilizing this space adds a lot of additional storage depth to each shelf, and prevents items from falling behind the shelf. I also made two large, swinging wood doors for the building front. They are secured from the inside with cane bolts and a lock on the outside. Over the doorway opening, I made an overhang to keep weather away from the doors. To build it, I utilized one of the left-over spacer straps and salvaged some of the cut-off sheet metal. The overall cost of the overhang shelf was zero. The high arched ceiling is a real plus. It allows for vertical storage of ten foot long boards utilizing just a small floor footprint. In a building with an eight-foot ceiling, floor-space would be quickly consumed. My wife and I constructed the majority of the building. My brother-in-law and my grandson helped some too. It was great having family in on it. Construction was a lot of work, but in the end it was well worth the effort.” SteelMaster’s steel and metal pre-engineered buildings are designed for a broad range of residential and commercial applications including homes, farm buildings, garages, workshops, agricultural storage, Quonsets, airplane hangars, RV storage, roofing systems, carports, military buildings, commercial warehousing, and industrial storage as well as a wide variety of custom building applications including athletic facilities, retail stores, churches, bus stops, smoke shacks, doggie dorms, and correctional facilities. SteelMaster welcomes Gerard Regnier as our newest “Partner in Steel (PIS)”. He said he would definitely send some customers our way. By becoming a PIS, this ensures Gerard cash rewards for any of his referrals that purchase a building from us. Gerard seems to think this is a pretty good gig, especially since he has no problem bragging about how much he loves his SteelMaster Storage Shed.
