Description
An insulated shed in the garden is used for storage. The entrance is at the same level as the wooden deck. The shed is lined with shelves. Adjacent to the shed is an open space covered by a roof that is used for bicycles and as storage space for the wheelchair and other assistive devices.

Users comments
When the user bought the house there was a small uninsulated storage unit. The current storage unit is accessible, but the user does not go inside it very often. Skis and winter or summer clothes are stored in the shed. However, the open space under the roof is extremely practical.
