At Recreation Unlimited, we’re proud to offer custom, Amish-built sheds in Indiana to meet the needs of people just like you. .
We have worked with Recreation Unlimited throughout the years. Most recently we purchased and had installed a basketball goal. Our kids are loving it! Thanks to Jackie, our sales person, we have a good source of exercise and entertainment for our 4 kiddos during the time period where we are spending lots of time at home.

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.
Top Tip: Drill 4” wood screws trough the bottom plates in the floor of the backyard shed, every 6”, after drilling several pilot holes.
Install the tongue and groove sheets as in the image, otherwise the floor won’t provide enough support to store heavy items.

Here’s something that’s been trending lately – a SHE Shed! What’s that, you ask? It is basically a little outdoor retreat, like a man cave but for girls. I think they are so adorable and just simply stunning! I could imagine myself cozying down with a furry throw and a hot cider on a cool fall day, then take a little snooze. What a masterpiece!
