We have a rather small piece of land living in Florida. We have a patio behind the house and then its grass to a dock and our boat. Our garage is full and we really needed someplace to put all the stuff we drag on the boat.

I saw an ad in the newspaper showing Sears Suncast GS1000 20 cubic foot horizontal Storage Shed and the light bulb went on. Perfect size and shape for the little bit of space we could designate for a storage shed. I showed hubby. We looked it up online and then were lucky enough to see it at Walmart. We went directly to Walmart to check it out in person. Sears also carries it and you can purchase online as well.
The shed wasn't huge which was perfect in our minds. It measures 4'6" wide x 2'2" deep by 2'10" high (20 cubic feet).It sits in a horizontal position.
It is just perfect for the boat flotation vests, toys, pails, skim boards and such that needed a home. It's a nice neutral shade of taupe with dark brown or bronze, as they call it, accents. It's meant to be snapped together since it comes broken down. You need no tools and it went together easily. You can add shelves, there are supports for this. We needed the space but not the shelving. We left them out. You can load your storage unit through the front doors or from the top lid. The lid can be propped open.
The shed is, of course, waterproof. Ours has been out there now for several seasons and through quite the storms without a problem.The sun in Florida is extremely strong and our shed is in the shade quite a bit and the color is unchanged. The material it's made of is UV resistant material called poly resin. It cleans up very easily if you get debris or marks on it.
It's easy to relocate when empty. The Suncast storage shed is absolutely the perfect size for the small area we had and if you need more storage you can certainly put two side by side. It's proved extremely durable and very handy.
This storage unit can be used for other purposes as well. Use it for garden tools, pool toys or camping equipment. It can be multi purpose storage.
Suncast also makes garden hose reels, garage storage units, dog houses, gazebos, deck boxes, patio accessories, garden carts and more.Suncast makes a storage station for BBQ, a storage container for garbage cans, dock boxes, pool boxes, pet sheds and carriers. They also offer a vertical shed. Some of the deck boxes offer rollers, internal trays and seat tops. One box design even looks like a large resin chair. I've seen them in all cocoa and all taupe colors. They are perfect for keeping things neat and out of the weather and can be fairly decorative although they are basically utilitarian.
Different sizes can run up to $1000 or more for a 7'x 7'. The small storage seat is runs $31.00 (22 gal)
I've seen it priced at $150.00 but watch for post season sales. We paid $99.00 at Walmart and we saw it online for $119.00.
