When it comes to storage, you don’t need a massive space. A compact shed can efficiently house your garden tools, seasonal decorations, and even that bicycle you’ve been meaning to ride. The added porch is a bonus, offering a shaded spot to clean tools or tend to your flowers and plants.

2. Guest House/Lodging: Spacious and Welcoming Size: 12×24 or 14×28
