Shortages of money for tape can be a factor. I always keep on the lookout for discarded rolls of partially used tape while digging through the construction rubble. A lot of contractors leave behind all different kinds of tape. Ductape (not very paintable but strong as hell!) is always in abundance around tract home sites. The tape the stucco lathers use around here to seal their 3/4" foam board is THE BEST for our intended application. It is pretty much a veneer with adhesive and it paints just like cardboard.
Long gone are the days when buying something from a different state - let alone a different country - would be an exotic or adventurous concept. It has now become an everyday experience to order something from an online store, wait a few days and then, hey presto, it's arrived as if by magic. You could be buying the latest mass-produced high-tech from Best Buy, a vintage, secondhand product from a seller on either eBay or eCRATER, or a uniquely upcycled handmade item from a creative craft maker located on the other side of the world via Etsy.
Shall we move forward to finding out exactly what it is that you need or want a storage shed to accomplish in your present life and in future. Is it a workshop that you're looking for? Simple storage space perhaps, to assist you in the task of de-cluttering the basement, attic, garage, office, pantry, art studio, etc. Maybe you finally feel the need for a garden shed to accommodate all the equipment and tools that you plan to acquire to assist your new found green thumb. Could be that a safe play area for the kids, is on the agenda this year? And maybe the garage is just not the ideal spot any more to have the guys practice for the up coming gig?
Every homeowner should have tools available to use whenever they need them. Unexpected repairs can happen and if you have your own tools and the equipment to use them, you can save money. Homeowners can also have a sense of pride in knowing they can repair their own homes. A wise investment for any homeowner is to have a central pneumatic air compressor to power their air tools.
Two types of systems are available; grid-tie and stand alone. If the grid-tie is considered, make sure to determine if the wind or wind-solar system will function even if the utility power goes off. Some will still operate and some do not. I don't think I would want to spend thousands of dollars on an auxiliary wind or solar system for emergencies only to find that it would not generate electricity without the power grid up and running.
Be sure to lubricate all moving surfaces with oil, WD-40™ or a dry film lubricant (You can use a light grease on the two lead screws, but if you grease the sliding rail, I think you'll find that the grease will probably be a sawdust magnet!). Be sure to lubricate all sliding or rotating joints and connectors, especially those added washers on the legs where they mount to the sideplates.
