If you’re looking for compact storage space to house your essentials, Country Tyme Sheds has just the solution for you – small storage sheds. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore why opting for a small shed is a practical choice, the various options available, and the steps to take in making this valuable addition to your property.


Before delving into the world of small storage sheds, it’s essential to understand the reasons behind choosing a more modest size. The decision to opt for a small shed is often driven by factors such as budget constraints or the need for a space that perfectly aligns with specific requirements. Regardless of your motivation, a small storage shed proves to be a smart investment, providing a practical solution while preserving ample room in your backyard.

What Is A Small Storage Shed?

Defining what constitutes a small storage shed can be subjective. At Country Tyme Sheds, we classify sheds based on their width. Our small storage sheds typically start at 8′ wide and go up to 10′ wide. These compact sheds offer versatile sizing options, ranging from 8×8 to 10×28, ensuring there’s a shed to fit every need.


Let’s dive into the specifics of our small storage sheds:

8′ WIDTH SHEDS: This is our smallest selection, providing various combinations ranging from 8×8 to 8×18. The 8′ 8-width shed offers flexibility to meet your specific size requirements.

10′ WIDTH SHEDS: The second smallest option, with sizes ranging from 10×10 to 10×28. This shed provides a bit more space compared to the 8′ wide sheds and offers diverse size selections.

Why Choose A Small Storage Shed Over A Larger One?

Each shed size comes with its pros and cons, but there are compelling reasons to choose a smaller storage shed. Compact sheds are easier to place in your backyard, avoiding potential legal issues that may arise with larger structures. Additionally, they come with a more budget-friendly price tag, making them ideal for basic storage needs.

Explore Small Storage Shed Styles

Choosing a style for your small storage shed is a crucial decision. Country Tyme Sheds offers a variety of options to match your preferences and complement your home’s design:

Backyard Series Small Storage Sheds: Our top-selling shed, is constructed similarly to the Elite Series but without the fancy trim.

Elite Series Small Storage Sheds: For a more eye-appealing style with wider deluxe trim and a distinctive roof pitch.

Garden Series Storage Sheds: Featuring a steep 11/12 roof pitch, larger windows, and wider trim for a beautiful and upscale design.

MiniBarn Storage Sheds: Smaller in size but still offering plenty of storage space, making it the most economical choice.

Once you’ve selected the size and style of your small storage shed, the next step is to consider various options to customize it according to your needs.

Selecting Options For Your Small Storage Shed

Customizing your shed with exterior and interior options enhances both functionality and aesthetics. Consider the following options:

EXTERIOR SHED OPTIONS: Enhance the exterior look with customizable colors, windows, doors, and more. Add decorative window boxes or additional windows for more lighting.

INTERIOR SMALL SHED OPTIONS: Tailor the interior based on your specific needs. If you plan to have tools and a small workstation, shelves may suffice. For those looking to store a lot inside the shed, a loft could be an ideal addition.

Choosing Siding For Small Storage Sheds

Selecting the right siding is crucial for protecting your shed from the elements. Country Tyme Sheds offers three popular siding options:

LP SmartSide

  • Material: LP SmartSide is engineered wood siding made from wood strands or fibers, treated with resins and binders, and then coated with a protective overlay.
  • Advantages:
    • Resembles traditional wood siding but offers better durability and resistance to termites and decay.
    • Lightweight and easy to work with during installation.
    • Available in various styles and textures to suit different design preferences.
  • Considerations:
    • Requires proper installation and maintenance to ensure longevity.
    • It may be susceptible to moisture if not sealed correctly.

Vinyl Siding:

  • Material: Vinyl siding is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a durable and low-maintenance material.
  • Advantages:
    • Resistant to rot, insects, and water damage.
    • Low maintenance – doesn’t require painting and can be cleaned easily.
    • Wide range of colors and styles available.
  • Considerations:
    • Limited design flexibility compared to other materials.
    • May not have the same aesthetic appeal as natural wood siding.

Board & Batten:

  • Material: Board and batten siding is a style rather than a specific material. It typically involves wide boards placed vertically with narrow battens covering the seams.
  • Advantages:
    • Provides a rustic and traditional look.
    • Offers a textured and visually appealing exterior.
    • Can be made from various materials, including wood, fiber cement, or engineered wood.
  • Considerations:
    • Installation may be more labor-intensive compared to other siding types.
    • Maintenance requirements can vary depending on the chosen material.

WOOD SIDING: A traditional choice with a natural textured woodgrain appearance backed by a 50-year limited warranty.

VINYL SIDING: A popular option for minimal maintenance with a 25-year no-fade warranty, ensuring durability.

LP SMARTSIDING: Engineered wood siding made from wood strands or fibers, treated with resins and binders, and coated with a protective overlay for enhanced durability.
