If you think you might like to buy a 12×16 shed, here are several things you should consider:
We don’t build it, until you order it. We know your shed is uniquely yours and we customize to fit your needs and style. .
Atypical roof design means not much space for a loftComes with 18×23 windows, which are fairly small
The structure is made of durable HDPE, double-walled and reinforced with steel all over, the roof has steel trusses to help it stay put and withstand a weight of 23 pounds per square foot, and the floor is made of the same HDPE, it’s anti-slip and it can hold up to 35 pounds per square foot. However, all this is possible only if you have a strong and very level foundation to lay it on, and most recommend going for concrete. The materials and build guarantee an all-weather resistance and a wind resistance of up to 65 mph, and the roof has a 6:12 pitch ratio to help with snow shedding during winter. If the winds in your area are stronger, we advise that you anchor it to the foundation. Maintenance-wise it doesn’t require anything other than dusting and regular checks of the metal hardware.

As soon as the schools and parks closed for COVID, we started researching swing sets for the kids. After looking around at Amazon and Costco, we ended up going with RU for the quality and free install (they had a special going).We’ve had neighbors who bought from Amazon wish they had one a little bigger and nicer like the one we have.The installers were great. They took the time to put it exactly where I wanted it, confirming multiple times. They were really nice and professional, even during COVID.Overall, great experience. Oh, and we never even went to the showroom (again, COVID). We did it all over the phone which was very easy. The customer service team was very easy and pleasant to work with.
As long as you follow the right order when building your shed and you make use of the plethora of tutorials available online, we’re sure you’re going to have an amazing end product. As our final recommendation, the order is:
You don't need special skills to build this 288 square foot storage shed — just the time to follow our step-by-step plans and color diagrams.
Depending on the size of your ATV or lawn mower, you will have room for storage shelves and some smaller hand equipment such as a rake, a wheelbarrow, a leaf blower. You may also have some loft space, depending on what style 12×16 Storage Shed you choose. If want roughly the same amount of space with a slightly different configuration, you may want to check out pricing for a 10×20 storage shed.
Do NOT purchase anything from Recreation Unlimited these crooks! I worked with Linzi Jones and Alicia Schilke (The GM) and they are incompetent liars. I purchased a play set and playhouse for over $12,000, I ordered the same thing that was on the floor and what came was totally the wrong set. I ordered the 6 foot version and they sent me the 4 foot version. I have tried to get them to fix the situation and they are unwilling to accept fault. You would think for $12k they could fix their mistake. DO NOT buy from these snakes!!
If you’re like most people shopping for a shed, you have 3 main criteria on your mind: long-lasting quality, sufficient storage space, and a fair price. Here’s the good news: if you know where to look, you can have all 3! While The Backyard Showcase is primarily known for our Amish-built backyard structures, we also sell handcrafted storage sheds to homeowners just like you. Read our latest blog to learn about fair Amish shed prices — and to find the perfect shed that meets your needs. When you’re wondering “What should a shed cost?”, the most important attribute to consider is quality. While you can get a bottom-of-the-barrel price on a hardware store shed, the quality simply won’t be there and you’ll end up replacing it a year or two later. Every single one of the sheds we sell are hand-built by skilled craftsmen in a workshop, and that’s why they can last up to 50 years. We break down what our average Amish shed prices are — and what you get for each price point.
Extremely pleased with my whole experience with Recreation Unlimited. Great customer service.
I live in Highland Michigan. off 23andm59 Highland Rd. Would like a small shed built. Live in farm area on 10 acres. No shade for dog in field. Can’t leave dog in barn it’s very old. Could use barn door repair. Sliding doors stuck. 248-714-8188 Sandra Williams could use some type of shaded building in other field too.
Very happy with the service we received. The folks who came out and installed the goals were courteous and professional and they stayed on the planned schedule. The kids (and I) have loved our new basketball goal.
Jackie was great to work with. We had looked in our area (2 hours away) and couldn’t find anything we really liked. An online search led us to Recreation Unlimited. Searching their website led us to the Enamour Spa in the Fantasy line. A couple of phone calls to ensure it was what we were interested in and we were ready to buy. We actually did all the paperwork through email and did not actually visit their location until the day we picked up the spa. Being 2 hours away was outside their delivery area but the spa itself was really easy to move an set up. We were in it the next night. Will recommend both Jackie & Recreation Unlimited to anyone interested in a new spa.
Shop by roofline style or collection. We have a storage shed or garage to fit your individual need for space.
