- Large, customizable space – easy to add a workbench, shelves, etc.
- Can be used as an office space
- Larger than a 14×20 without taking up significantly more room
- Can add lots of windows
- Enough space to store large items and can be used instead of a storage unit
- Looks beautiful in your yard and can actually be part of your landscape
- Big enough to be used for more than just storage
- Large but not oversized, most likely will not take up an entire yard
- Can store lots of tools, gardening equipment, and other outdoor gear including lawnmowers, ATVs, etc.
- May not be suitable for small or medium-sized yards

14×24 Shed Uses
14×24 sheds are the perfect size for a multi-purpose backyard storage building! With a smaller sized shed, you usually have to choose between uses – there is only enough space for storage or your workshop items. However, a 14×24 shed can be used exclusively for storage, as a workshop, or as both! The example below shows how you could use your 14×24 shed as a multi-purpose space.

As mentioned above, the great thing about this size and other larger sheds is that you can also use it as a workshop and not sacrifice storage space.

Workshop, and/or Garden Shed
Anything is possible with your own shed! However, using a 14×24 shed exclusively for tools or garden equipment may not make the most of your large shed, depending on how many tools or garden supplies you have. If you are an avid gardener and have tons of supplies, a 14×24 shed may be perfect as a garden shed! However, if you have an average amount of supplies, it may be best to use a small space or loft within your shed for garden and tool storage, and use the rest of your shed as a workshop!
She-Shed or Man Cave
Have you heard of the she-shed? What about a man cave? Converting your big shed into your own personal at-home retreat is one of the latest and greatest trends! A 14×24 shed is the perfect size for your very own backyard oasis.
Add in a TV, some video games, and a comfy chair or couch and you’ve got yourself the perfect retreat. Or add in some shelves, a pegboard, a large table and craft supplies and you’ve got any crafter’s dream space.
