Backyard Storage Sheds

Backyard sheds are a common sight in rural areas where farming was once dominant. Made out of necessity and rough cut wood, they’re rotting and falling down now, but they once housed everything from horses to chickens, a granary or a dairy, and the inevitable but necessary privy which became a shed for garden tools once indoor plumbing arrived. From these beginnings backyard storage sheds have become more common place.
