Our cottage came with an abundance of storage space – a basement, the Monster garage, AND a garden shed. We have no current plans of becoming hoarders, so the majority of the space lies empty (save for spiders and other creepy-crawly-gross-things). And here lies the dilemma:
Should we tear out the garden shed, or assume that extra storage always = more value for future buyers?
We’d appreciate freeing up some more of our backyard, but the labor involved gives us pause. You see, there’s a forest of weeds and the remnants of an old compost pile stuffed back there (thanks, Previous Owners) which we’d have to deal with once the shed departed, and that doesn’t sound like a fun summer-time activity. (Unless you disagree, and in that case, you should come visit). And more importantly, which is a bigger added-value – an 8 x 10 garden shed, or a nicer back yard?
I vote for tearing it out, but John’s reasoning is that potential buyers may need a place to store
dead bodies things, and since it’s in good shape, we lose nothing by leaving it there. What do you think, dear Internet?
