Introduction: Outside Storage Box - Part I

Is your backyard cluttered with toys, tools, gardening tools, etc? Don’t have room for a shed? Need some outside storage for your apartment balcony? Well this little storage box might be the answer for you.

Its can be as simple as making a plywood box with a lid or you can get creative with your design like I did. With some left over ¼” plywood strips, I was able to create a fun little design to my box. The challenge is making it water proof. I used roofing paper and wrapped the frame of the box, kind of like a Christmas present. To add another barrier against leaking, I glued the plywood strips to one another. The third and final barrier is to water proof it with a deck waterproofer.

Hopefully this will get your creative juices flowing in an attempt to organize your backyard.

Dont forget to watch Part II.

I'm not too sure that I like the idea of a permanent storage container sitting on my yard although that means that I have all the time in the world to get my things in order and pack that storage container! I would prefer that everything get moved away after everything is packed so I don't have to deal with the eyesore of it around though. That would be ideal! Coupling your storage solution with convenience and capacity!

It's a good idea, but I'd like to know what can be done further to ensure that an outdoor storage box like this can be made waterproof!
