storage sheds – Arrow, 2017

Arrow’s Newport High Wall 10 x 12 Metal Storage Shed features a simple design and wide double doors. With room for a riding lawn mower or other outdoor equipment, the shed also features a 67-inch sidewall for headroom.

This storage shed includes a floor foundation kit so you can create a plywood floor if desired, though you will have to purchase the wood separately. The shed is also designed to be erected on a flat concrete base, and you may be able to put it on flat dirt or gravel ground. However, settling the shed directly on the ground may not provide optimal long-term performance.

In addition to the floor kit, this outdoor storage shed comes with two front doors for a wide entry point. The doors open to around 55.5 inches wide. The door assembly includes a lock to help protect your items, and you can choose from either a white or brown design to match landscape decor in your yard. The shed does not include windows or shelving units.

The manufacturer offers optional accessories that you can purchase separately to customize your garden shed. You can add wall hooks and hanging racks, beams to strengthen the ceiling or walls, workbenches, overhead storage and shelves. You can also purchase anchor hooks to secure the shed, which may be a good idea if you live in a windy environment.

The Newport outdoor shed is made from electro-galvanized steel. The shed comes as a do-it-yourself kit that the manufacturer rates as requiring an advanced skill level and at least two people to assemble. According to Arrow, the shed should take two or more advanced individuals between eight and 12 hours to assemble. In addition to at least intermediate building skills, you will need a range of tools ??? possibly including a drill ??? to assemble the shed accurately and within the manufacturer’s proposed time.

While there are no windows in this shed, the ample door opening should provide plenty of light, letting you find what you need or work on simple projects inside the shed. Without heavy modifications, this shed is not likely to work as an outdoor shop for advanced projects.

Durable metal construction and a 12-year manufacturer’s warranty make this shed a good choice for homeowners who need simple and ample storage in their backyards. The wide door lets you drive a small tractor or riding lawnmower right into the unit, and you can customize the interior to meet personal storage needs.
