At Urban Sheds, we’re proud to connect our customers directly with local craftsmen and
builders to create the custom shed of your dreams. And for many of our clients, the first
step in building a new shed is to get rid of an old one that’s well past its prime!
That was the case for Don Coughlin, a Massachusetts-based attorney and realtor who
knew he needed an improvement to the aging outdoor structure on his property.
“I had a dilapidated old shed that was falling apart in the backyard,” Don said. “I was in
the market for a new high-quality structure that could provide proper storage for the items
that wouldn’t fit in our garage including garden tools, a lawnmower, snowblower and some
After doing a bit of research online, Don found Urban Sheds’ website—and after
reviewing several completed works in our online gallery, he really started to develop a
vision for this next project. It didn’t take long for us to help turn that vision into reality.
“My experience with Jeremy and the Urban Sheds team could not have been better,”
Don explained. “They began by getting rid of the old beat up shed in the backyard and
were even able to preserve (and build on top of) the existing foundation which saved me
quite a bit of time and money.”
“I’m a detail-oriented person and had requested quite a few alterations and modifications,”
he added, “and I was concerned about asking for something that was ‘too custom’. Jeremy’s
team was so accommodating and worked with me every step of the way to ensure I was
getting exactly what I wanted—right down to my requests for things like stainless
hardware, special primer paint and custom double-door.”
Don also commended the Urban Sheds team for our ability to create a premium-quality
product onsite without sacrificing or damaging any of the surrounding area—a challenge
sometimes easier said than done.
“I’m a very neat and detail-oriented person, and my shed is in a rather tight spot near my
deck and house,” explains Don. “Jeremy was very careful not to overspray any paint or
disturb any of the nearby gardening and planting throughout the entire building process,
whether he was bringing in materials or working on the actual build. His cleanup was
immaculate as well.”
“I would absolutely recommend Urban Sheds to anyone looking for a new shed or outdoor
structure,” Don adds. “In fact I’m so pleased with their work I’ve actually been
recommending Urban Sheds to all of my real estate clients who are buying houses that
needs sheds. I’ve done the research and assure them that Jeremy and the team at Urban
Sheds are second to none!”

That’s exactly what happened for Scott, who was a first-time buyer with a pretty specific
vision of what he was looking for.
“I had been shopping around for several months before finding Urban Sheds,’ said Scott.
“We’ve never owned a shed but desperately needed one as we had been lugging our
bicycles up and down our steep cellar steps—not to mention we had no storage space for
backyard items like a hammock and lawnmower.”
To start, Scott spent some time doing online research and looking at a number of local
shed-building companies; he even conducted several site visits to check out some finished
products and meet with builders.
“We really struggled to find the right combination of quality and value that we were looking
for,” said Scott. “After striking out with a few local custom builders and all of the big-box
stores we looked at, we ran a few more web searches and were fortunate to find Urban
Scott was immediately impressed with both the quality and work ethic at Urban
Sheds—and thanks to our 3D configuration software, he was able to design his own shed
from scratch rather than being forced to purchase a pre-fabricated product or rely on
another builder’s design.”
“The online shed-building software is amazing,” said Scott. “We were able to visualize
and test many different configurations, colors and options—all with pricing right there. It’s
a very cool experience and something that makes it easy for literally anyone to begin
designing and building their perfect shed.”
Once the design was complete, Scott sent it to Urban Sheds with a deposit and desired
start date and we immediately began scoping out the project. Within just a few weeks,
we were able to finish the build.
“We couldn’t be happier with the entire process,” Scott recalled. “Everything we ordered
was customized, from the doors to the ramp to the roof—and Jeremy’s team built a
spectacular product that we know will last for many years.”
“The best part about working with Urban Sheds is that they connect you with local
builders,” Scott added. “It’s really important to us that we’re supporting local,
independent businesses—and Jeremy and his team make that easy to do thanks to their
talent and professionalism. In fact we were so impressed with the shed that we asked
Urban to build a small deck for us later that summer!”
