Lean to units are pretty unique. They actually tilt onto another structure to create a seamless look. They are also usually the smaller shed option of the group, however, if used correctly, they can really be effective.


When it comes to shed or carport options for your home, nothing is more versatile than a lean to unit. If you are interested in getting one, here are a few creative ways on how you can use them.


Use Your Lean To Unit


…As a Tractor Shed

Don’t leave your tractor trailer out in the rain or snow. Instead get a lean to shed for house, your yard or agricultural equipment. A lean to unit is the perfect size to keep your trailer or any other small tools.


… As a Greenhouse

If you have always dreamed of owning a greenhouse, why not make one by customizing a lean to unit?  If you want a DIY project, all you need is a few old windows and a really good tutorial.


Better yet, you can consult a carport expert to have them build one for you.


…As a Wood Storage Shed

Need a safe place to store your firewood before winter? Well, a lean to is perfect for the job. By enclosing the lean to, you can also keep pests and bugs away and keep the firewood in tip top shape.


…As a Bike Storage Shed

Unless you have an extra-large garage carport, finding somewhere to put your bicycles when they are not in use can be cumbersome. Sure, you can find a hiding spot in your garage or hand it on the wall in the interior of your garage, but that is a lot of work. This is especially true if each family member owns a bike. By adding a lean to along side of your garage, you have an instant bike hutch that is easily accessible for even the smallest person in your family.


… As a Gardening Shed

A lean to unit is the perfect hideaway for your gardening tools. Add a few hooks to the walls of your lean to carport then hang your tools for easy access. You can also add a few shelves to hold your pots and soil, or even a small desk to use as a garden workstation.
