    Hi Triciann. You can purchase a smaller suncast, or rubbermaid resin shed from a home improvement store. They are very easy to put together, and if you move you can take it with you. We bought one for our lawn tools, bikes, and mower. There is plenty of home and it is very durable.

    Check your local home center for options. Most of them sell shed kits that can be put up fairly cheaply. They come in all sizes and styles to match your home. Or, watch your local Craigslist. Sometimes you can get a bargain online in your local area as long as you have a way to haul it.

    WE have a very small lot and no garage. My husband built this tool shed using some found things. . . like the base for the front which is a large piece of wood from the beach, the door and the window. It has been up many years in Maine weather. It can't be moved but it didn't cost as much as a ready made one either and maybe a handy man could build one inexpensively.

    The cheapest are the metal sheds, that hold up if they are put on a concrete slab.... https://www.lowes.com/pl/Metal-storage-sheds-Sheds-Sheds-outdoor-storage/4294612524

    Most of the big box home improvement stores sell free standing sheds and storage buildings.
    We looked at those options and found they were too expensive for us. We went another direction.... We started with one of the "garages" from Harbor Freight and used the included cover which lasted about a year... then we replaced the cover with rippled galvanized sheets for the roof, and T-111 siding for the sides and ends. we still have this storage structure for our Joyner and some of the yard tools, rototiller, etc...
    We are planning to make a 2nd one..with the following changes... this time we plan on putting the rippled fiberglass sheets on the roof and we plan on doing it from the beginning.. BEFORE we lift the roof portion up off the ground (we will need people to help lift it, of course). The other change is..we will have the sheets overhang the front and back by at least 6 inches or so. We plan on using 4x4 post and header to make a frame work for sliding barn doors for the next structure.
    We used conduit clips to secure 2x4 nailing stringers to the tubing structure of the "garage". The 2x4 stringer have stiffened the entire structure up quite nicely. We use re-bar "hair pins" about 16 inches long to secure the corner poles and 10 in nail like spikes for the other "feet" of the structure... it has withstood some very high winds here in Phoenix.

      We have also use the "garage" as the base for a shade cloth structure for our garden and one for our horse.
