Get Ready For A Backyard She Shed

Everyone needs to occasionally escape to a quiet place. In a busy family, that might hard to accomplish. Perhaps that is why she sheds are gaining in popularity all across the country. Unlike a typical garden shed, a she shed is designed to provide a cozy atmosphere. It can have windows, a sky light and electricity. There can also be room for comfy furniture that allows for quiet relaxation. A she shed can also become a pottery or art studio. Unlike a room addition to the home, a she shed is a freestanding structure that doesn’t require complicated set up. In fact, Amazon even sells she shed kits for easy assembly. If all of this sounds appealing, then you’ll need to get your yard ready for a she shed and that preparation should start with a call to Junk King Monterey.

Yard Clearing Help

The two-man team from Junk King won’t be able to put your she shed together (even though that have the skills!). The purpose for hiring them is to clear the space for the she shed. This can involve taking down things like a swing set or playground area. There might also be an older shed that has to be emptied and taken apart. All of that work can be accomplished by the Junk King squad. They do more than just lifting and loading!

A lot of what you might have Junk King clear from the yard can be especially heavy. This is why you need two movers on the task. It is also why you want to make sure Junk King is the junk hauling company that you want for this job. That is because Junk King doesn’t charge by the pound. Imagine if they had to weight rocks and dirt? Instead, Junk King’s fee will be determined by how the truck gets packed up by the crew. Their goal is to get as much as they can into as little space as possible. They do that so you can pay the low end of the pricing fee. That really is what they want to make happen.

Getting your backyard ready for a she shed should include a yard clearing session with Junk King Monterey. Set that up today.
