    storage sheds, .70 per square foot, key codes to get in. All shops or warehouses in my area are going for around 1.00 per square plus utilities.

    Holy Cow!!! $0.70 per sq. foot seems really expensive. We are not key pad coded for entry, just camera monitored. I guess the difference must be for the security upgrade, or location. I'm fully insured, so I guess I'll take my chances with the savings. - not bashing your storage spot, just very expensive from my neighborhood averages.

    holy cats! And I was griping about what mine costs, figures to $.28 a sq ft.! 10x25 for $70 a month. No power in mine, but a really nice newer facility all wood and drywall construction in a very nice end of town.

    I don't run my business out of it, but I have to have it to store mowers in over the winter and other equipment that I don't use that often. No room at home for it all!
