Finding a storage shed

My advice is to make a list of your requirements - what must the shed be used to store, how dry it must be kept, will any work be carried out inside the shed and will some form of bench and heating be needed.
What is your budget, the expected lifespan, the level of security needed and the space available.

In this way you will be able to arrive at a specification - wooden (perhaps), with floor or without floor, single or double door, pent roof, flat roof or ridged roof, with or without windows and any of the many available options to make your shed the best it can be for the job it must do.

If high security is needed and the shed doesn't have to be beautiful a shipping container will probably cost less than an equivalent shed. For less secure accommodation on a budget an old truck or van body perhaps...

I hope I have provided food for thought.

This sand filter and pump is 1 season old, when I turn on pump it makes a humming noise and will trip the reset. Is the motor no good or is there something I can check.

this might be a case of pump was not stored correctly from 1st season , now pump shaft has become dry and tight , well if your handy with a phillips head you could try and dissasembe pump and lube shaft with waterproof grease ( kitchen faucet parts in hardware store)
i allways store my pump filled with food grade antifreeze (rv grade) and hoses capped off and pointed up , it stays all winter inside an unheated shed with no problems for two swiming seasons now

Hi there, we have recently moved house, the palm tree (according to the previous owners has been there over 16 years planted by themselves). The tree has been shedding its leaves over the winter months,...

Hello Eileen, W/D here.
Palms will reabsorb some of their nutrients when fronds are shed, even over winter. If possible, you should let the ugly fronds go, and allow the trunk to take back what's stored in the frond stems. When they become brown, or less green, or droop, they can be pruned. This is usually found with the lower fronds. If upper fronds exhibit these symptoms, it is usually from the effects of winter, but the same rules apply, except that you can trim partial fronds to get rid of the brown leaves.
The acid test for a palm is, if there are shoots in the middle of the canopy protruding, to pull on them firmly, but not aggressively. If the shoots pull out easily, the palm is probably dead. Some winters are more brutal than others, and palms take the worst of them. We double-cover our palms, and place lights inside of the covering that we make, and the larger ones have made it over winter now for about 5 years. I have used incandescent Christmas lights wrapped around the trunk and hung in the canopies, then covered and it worked well too. One friend slaved his Christmas lights to his pool pump control panel, only to lose his palms. Seems that he was using LED lights, which put out no heat. Queen palms have died in droves this, and last year, as have unprotected Robellinis. Washingtonians and Pindos have fared better. If you live in a coastal zone, you still need to cover and keep your palms warm through the worst of winter. We have used fitted sheets on the smaller canopies to contain the fronds, then covered that with plastic tarps, weighted down on the sides to form a mini greenhouse, and it works pretty well, but it's inconvenient. With spring here, there will be a lot of new outdoor umbrellas purchased, and the old ones will be pitched. We already have picked one up from a neighbor, and will erect it over one of the palms, then cover it as described. The thinking here that it should be much easier (and quicker) to protect the palms via this method.
As for the fungus noted, try light applications of a fungicide, but check first with a local nurseryman to see what works best in your area.
Hope that this is of some help.
Best regards, (and please rate this solution), --W/D--

What do I have to do to winterize my pressure washer? It will be in an unheated shed all winter.

Gasoline goes bad after sitting for an extended period of time.
Old school people would drain the gas out of the tank but found this lead to rust forming in the tank.
Now it is best to fill the tank with high octane gas and use a winterizing fuel additive to prevent problems.
Also remove any water from the hoses.
In the spring replace the gas and change the oil and you should be good, changing the spark plug would also be beneficial.

1 yr. old Nissan, 2 hp four stroke won't start. Pulled out from shed where it was stored for the winter. I did flush with fresh water, put fuel stabilizer in gas tank, and stored. This engine has about...

I have had similar problems with stabilizer. Many people swear by the stuff. Try a new plug and while you have the plug out see if the old one is wet. Try cranking it over with the plug out and see if that helps to circulate the fuel. Then use the new plug. Fresh fuel is the next thing if it doesn't work.

Cbr 600 grtting ready for winter

top off the fuel tank to reduce the amount of air in there, less open space means less room for condensation to form and cause rust in the tank. next drain the float bowls if you dont really like pulling the carbs in the spring. also put the battery on a trickle charger to keep it from going bad.
