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.
If you’re a gardener, you’ll understand exactly how garden equipment, supplies and general stuff have a tendency to rapidly accumulate. It appears that most of us start out with just the basics, but before you know what, we all seem to end up with a vast collection of tools, pots, old toys, and all manner of random stuff that often threatens to overwhelm even our best outdoor sheds.
An 80 square feet shed can suffice anyone's wood storing needs, since you'll be able to stack up to 4 cord of logs. It's easy to build and should take no more than a few days to finish.
I start the list in force because this 4×8 shed is sturdy, easy to build and it only requires 2x4s! Yes, you heard me right… this wood shed frame is built entirely from 2x4s, including the sides. In addition, the roof is made from metal sheets so you can keep the costs down. I highly recommend you to take a look over this project. MORE >>
What you do get in this kit is high quality 38mm x 89mm resin framing along with patented galvanized steel connectors that allow you to construct your shed without having to cut any miters or angle cuts. With 2×4 basics kit, you can build a shed from 7×8 foot to 8×14 foot by just ordering the required amount of framing and connectors. And what’s really great is you can buy the exact type of materials for the sidings, roofing and flooring to suit your individual tastes and budget. To be fair, not everyone has the time to build his or her own shed, but we think that 2x4basics are really onto something here. Make sure you also check our guide to the best lawn edgers.
Top Tip: Plumb the walls using a hand level, before locking them into place with screws. Make sure the top plates are perfectly horizontal, otherwise the roof won’t be symmetrical.
