Creek side Living Has its Limitations - Copely Township, Ohio


When their daughter finally graduated and began a life on her own, the Kerrs decided to change their lives too, selling the old homestead and purchasing a no-fuss home in a sophisticated subdivision with lots of trees.

The house they chose is an ample, colonial built at the crest of a hilly, wooded backdrop beyond which a small creek flows undisturbed. "It's so peaceful here. We loved this location from the moment we moved in", says Dianne Kerr who then shrugs her shoulders to lament, "Only, well.. you know how it is, no matter how big the home, you run out of space for your stuff."

Tired of constantly parking one car on the curb and moving the lawnmower to get to the bird seed, the empty nesters decided a storage shed was the only answer for the property. But they worried that the homeowner's association would nix their idea. "Our codes are pretty strict" says Dianne.

Even though it would be down the hill from the house and tucked away near the woods, the rules firmly stated that our shed had to look like it belonged there. Luckily, the Kerr's found Just a Shed and owner John Holling helped guide them into the perfect storage shed for their needs. Says Holling, "I don?t really think of myself as being in the construction business. What I'm really selling is lifestyle. My sheds should always reflect the customer's taste."

And so, on a late summer afternoon, sunlight filters through the maple trees lining the side yard causing shadows of dark and light to dance on side walls of the Kerr's new shed.

In keeping with the homeowner's association, it has been painted and roofed in exactly the same colors as the Kerr home.

"We couldn't be happier with our final decision" says Mrs. Kerr, "It's so pretty and works so well.. Besides, our daughter keeps coming home with more stuff she wants us to store for her.
It's a good thing we bought that shed. Otherwise, we'd have two cars out on the curb and our lawn mower would have been completely covered up. Our grassy lawn would look like a pasture. We get compliments on the shed all the time but most importantly, it has more than come in handy.

I don't know what I'd do without it. Even though it would be down the hill from the house and tucked away near the woods, the rules firmly stated that our shed had to look like it belonged there. We couldn't be happier with our final
decision"
