1 large shed or 2 smaller ones?
Due to setback requirements in our town, I can either put a 12'x16' shed at least 15' from the fenceline OR a smaller shed (under 100 sq feet) only 5' from the fenceline.
Our yard is only 125' wide, so putting a big shed 15' off the property line will have it looking (and feeling) like it's in the middle of the yard. I staked out that area and trust me, it's not pretty :(
So I'm debating - would having two smaller, matching sheds look odd?
If you're wondering, "Why such a big shed, are you housing elephants?" it's to hold a riding mower, snowblower (in the off season), and a sizable collection of lawn & garden tools.
Alternatively we could put the shed sort of centered in the back of the yard, but that will cost a lot more to run electrical that far (about 150' from the house) and we do want lights/outlets in the shed.
Any advice from someone who has had to incorporate storage into a yard?
Many thanks in advance!
