    Advice on building storage shed

    With the arrival of the 1026R, FEL, Ballast box and 54" QH front blade, plus all of the other yard equipment I already had, kids toys, etc. by 3rd garage bay is maxed out. I want to check out what a functional design would look like for a storage shed that I could move all of the yard equipment to and keep it there securely year round. During the winter I think I'd still want to keep the tractor with the front blade mounted in the garage. Maybe in the summer too.

    I have not done a lot of research yet, but did review my dad's outdoor shed he uses in Pittsburgh to keep yard equipment. He doesn't have a tractor or lots of big attachments any more and his 12x16 shed works great. When I had a LT180, 42" mower deck, 42" plow blade and 10P cart that seemed like it might work for me too or maybe go for the 12x20 model. Now with the 1026, its much bigger, has lots of big space consuming attachments and those attachments (FEL, BB, Blade/harness) all need direct drive up access to be able to connect/disconnect to them. So I just can't plan on jamming a lot of stuff into the shed, but need to access certain items like the FEL, BB, and blade. I just purchased the mower axles for the 60D AUto Connect deck so it can be wheeled across flat surfaces and stored upright saving a lot of space.

    So, what have others done? My Troy-Bilt chipper/vac, big pull behind aerator and some other tools don't get used much and could be "packed in" to the back of a shed 99% of the time. but I need to allow for the FEL and BB to be accessible. I figure the MMM will either be on the tractor, dropped in the driveway or yard to use the FEL or stored for the winter on it side/wheels.

    I'm trying to not have to build a massive building due to cost and space limitations. Open to any and all suggestions.

    I am in the same boat as you with same thoughts but have my plans (and slab ) laid out.

    I have an attached 1150 SF garage with infloor heat. The tractor will be in the garage with the blower during the winter but I would like to keep it in the shed the rest of the year.

    The plan is to keep the tractors and garden stuff in the shed. The slab I poured is 15 x 24. I poured it before I upgrade to a CUT and kinda sized everything around two garden tractors and not a CUT with a loader.

    I have a small trailer with a 5x10' bed, the 2305 with loader and 110 roundfender with cart and tiller. I have no doubt I will be doing more jockying around than I like but think it might work.

    I plan to be a little creative for storage. Might even back the trailer in with the 2305 and run it up on a ramp so I can have implements under the trailer.

    Like mentioned above they are never big enough and already thinking of ways to maximize space.

    Thanks. I'd love to top down sketch if you have one. How have you planned to store the FEL, etc to you can drive up to them?

    I'm looking at a 12x16 metal garage kit, or a shipping container if I get a good price.

    Well I laid all this out before the 2305 so I need to measure some stuff and put together my final plan. Since I have the slab I am locked to 15' x 24'.

    I need to rethink my garage door layout so I dont have to move so much around. Might end up with a door in the front and a door in the side.

    Either way I am pretty sure I will have a ramp lagged to floor to back the trailer up on.

    Just started looking at sheds/barns online with wife yesterday to try to plan out something that will work for us. I think the biggest issue I need to deal with is allowing for drive up access to the FEL, Ballast Box, etc. I'd like to try to be able to store the tractor in the shed too so we can get our 3rd bay of the garage cleaned up. I'm going to take some measurements and lay all of the things I want to store in the shed out on some graph paper and try to figure this out.

    I think with smaller buildings (large garden sheds) you about need two doors or you are going to have issues. My 15x24 I have a slab poured for would be impossible to use with a single door.

    Pretty sure I am going to build cantilevered shelves out the back of the building to store stuff like snowblower, mower deck, etc.

    I would go with a small pole building but I want it to match the house.

    Like mentioned, they are never big enough.
