With the holidays quickly approaching, many of us are feeling a renewed sense of hope that things will return to pre-pandemic normalcy, including spending time with friends and family.
With the holidays quickly approaching, many of us are feeling a renewed sense of hope that things will return to pre-pandemic normalcy, including spending time with friends and family. There was one positive that came from COVID, and that was the realization that spending time alone is not such a bad thing. If your guy needs a place to escape and have his time alone, make this the year that you update a storage shed for him to enjoy some solace doing whatever he wants.
A Man Cave
The idea of a “man cave” came from the prehistoric needs of hunters to have their own den of solace to do “man” things. If you want to make your man extra happy this Christmas, build him a custom storage shed complete with a television, video game system, and an oven and refrigerator. He can escape on Sunday afternoons to watch the game or invite some friends over to play poker or video games without interruption. And it isn’t just for him – you don’t have to worry about listening to or cleaning up after their “man” activities – that is all on them!
A Workout Room
One thing that probably suffered during the shutdowns was your man’s fitness level. Unless he was a die-hard outdoorsman, he likely missed a couple of trips to the gym. With the new year coming up quickly, make a workout/weight room for him in a storage shed behind the house. It really doesn’t take that much room to house his favorite equipment. That way, you can get your basement or garage back and he can blast whatever motivating music he wants without you having to listen to it.
A Music Room
Few things are more attractive than a man who knows how to play an instrument. If your guy likes to have regular jam sessions, why not build him a studio in a storage shed with acoustics to die for? You and the kids won’t be waiting for him to quit – instead, he can have his own interlude all night long and you all can sleep like babies!
Another thing that came from COVID is the ability we all found to entertain ourselves. If your other half has decided that fixing cars or woodworking are a great outlet, make a tool shed for him to tinker around in. Everyone deserves time to immerse themselves in doing something they enjoy. If he gets good enough, it might be an excellent way for him to earn some extra spending money for your next vacation.
As the holidays approach, you might be looking for the perfect gift for your better half. Your guy deserves some time and space alone, and what better way to provide it than to build storage sheds that suit his passions? Whether it is a workout room, a tool shed, or a music room, he will adore you for caring enough about his well-being to give him not just some space, but HIS space to be creative. At Portable Buildings by Ravenel, we have all sorts of storage sheds and outbuildings that can be built to suit whatever your man would like to do in his downtime.

If there is one thing that COVID has taught most adults, it’s that we need a space close to home – or at home – where we can escape and do our own thing. Never before has it been so important to design a space that is just for you! A portable building is an excellent way to find your haven in the chaos
If there is one thing that COVID has taught most adults, it’s that we need a space close to home – or at home – where we can escape and do our own thing. Never before has it been so important to design a space that is just for you! A portable building is an excellent way to find your haven in the chaos. And if you are imaginative enough, you can make your portable building in Charleston a place where you can find your chi! These are just some of the he versus she shed ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
Women and men approach working out in different ways. Most men are looking for the bulk, while most women are looking for the cardio burn. When designing your oasis, consider a portable building in case the gyms shut down again. Even if they don’t, you won’t have to go anywhere to work off some calories and energy. Your gym facility can be sitting a few steps from the house – how’s that for instant motivation to get moving?
Woodworking or Wine?
For most men, the idea of creating something with their own two hands is inspiring; women like creating too, but most of the creation comes from children. If you want to have a space to make some really cool stuff for generations to enjoy, a shed is a perfect space to build your workshop. Don’t worry whether it’s too late at night for power drills and saws; no one will hear you in the back shed unless you want them to!
Man or Woman Cave
Although we often associate caves with men, women need a cave, too! We might engage in different activities in them, but the thought is the same: a space that is all your own. Have your wine and cheese party steps from home so you don’t need a sitter. Men, invite your crew over for poker or to watch football without little feet pitter pattering around. You don’t have to worry about drinking and driving; all you have to do is put one foot in front of another to make your way home!
Okay, so maybe it isn’t a he versus she thing, but it is a “his parents versus your parents” one. Build an in-law suite in the backyard so when they come to visit you all have your own space to escape, hide, eat, whatever you choose to do. The idea is that you can do things without anyone hanging over you or watching. When it comes to great ideas for sheds, what is greater than having your loved ones close by? This way, they’re just not on top of you.
When our customers think about the potential of a portable building in Charleston, they often think with limited creativity and vision. You do so much to help your family out and ask for very little. Why not invest your energy and money into finding the oasis that makes the everyday bearable? He and she can even share if you work together instead of making it a “versus” thing. At Portable Buildings of Ravenel, we are all about customization, innovation, and creativity. Let us make your dream a reality, whether it is a joint one or solo!

As the summer turns to fall, all of that yard equipment will need to be put away until next year. A shed or garage is an excellent addition to your home.
As the summer turns to fall, all of that yard equipment will need to be put away until next year. A shed or garage is an excellent addition to your home. Not only will it give you more space to house your tools and equipment; it can also add equity to your home’s value. However, not all garages are the same; this also applies to the installers and manufacturers. Instead of just Googling “metal garages near me” and going with the first company that appears, go the extra mile to find a company like Portable Ravenel Buildings! Here are just three reasons to choose us!
If you are going to invest in a metal garage, make sure that you are getting your money’s worth. An outdoor garage will have to withstand a whole lot of punishment in South Carolina, like high winds and storms. Although you will be guided by price, it shouldn’t be the entire reason you choose a metal garage building company. At Portable Ravenel Buildings, when you choose us, you can rest assured that you purchased the highest-quality garage in the industry.
Metal garages are guided by building codes and other municipal issues and permits. Find a company that understands the rules and regulations of your location, has the experience to know how to pull a permit, and knows the steps necessary to ensure that your metal garage is done exactly as it should be. If you choose a company that either doesn’t understand building codes or tries to cut corners by doing it without a permit, that can lead to heavy fines or even the potential that the garage will have to be redone or removed altogether. A full-service company like Portable Buildings of Ravenel knows the ins and outs of the building industry, and we always make sure that we are doing everything according to the laws of your location.
Quality of Product
A metal garage can significantly range in price, but as we said earlier, you are going to get what you pay for. All of our products come with a specific guarantee of quality. We only work with reputable manufacturers and use the highest-quality materials and craftsmanship in the industry. Our buildings are built to withstand all that the South Carolina climate can throw at them – we guarantee it.
A metal garage is an excellent place to store your tools, equipment, vehicles, and toys for the long winter ahead. But who you hire matters. Don’t simply Google “metal garages near me” and choose the first company that appears. Go the extra mile to contact Portable Buildings by Ravenel. We might not be the cheapest in the industry, but we are fairly priced and you can rest assured that we only deliver the highest-quality metal garages. And we do everything by the book to ensure that you are compliant, no matter where you are located. Contact us today to get started on your new metal garage build.
With spring and summer in South Carolina comes the potential for tropical storms and hurricanes. If you are going to invest in a portable building
With spring and summer in South Carolina comes the potential for tropical storms and hurricanes. If you are going to invest in a portable building, make sure that it can withstand all the conditions that come with living in the South. Graceland is a company with an amazing reputation for excellence; it is also committed to offering the very best in building and construction – like a 150 MPH wind rating!
Why is a 150 MPH Rating Important?
Weather conditions can be harsh on portable buildings, especially in southern states. Not many portable buildings are built tough enough to withstand the high winds that we experience. If you are going to invest in a portable building, doesn’t it make sense to find one that you know will make it through the tough storms and come out just fine?
Other Features Are a Bonus
It isn’t just about the high wind ratings. Graceland is one of the highest-rated portable building companies in the industry. They have standard features that go above and beyond other companies, like a seven-year warranty on all of the workmanship, aluminum soffit vent system, and galvanized ring shank nails, which far surpass what other companies offer.
One of the other things that Graceland buildings offer is full customization to suit whatever you need to use the portable building for. You can choose from a garage, utility shed, or garden shed basic design with several different dimension options. Graceland also has a cabin option with a front porch or loft to fit the entire family. All cabins come with a blank slate interior that you can alter to suit your individual needs, which is an excellent upgrade that not a lot of other portable buildings come with.
Why Choose Buildings by Ravenel?
Not only do we offer a wide range of both Graceland and other portable building options; we also take care of everything from the permit process to delivery. And we have financing available, so our buildings are affordable for all. We have 13 styles of buildings that come in a range of sizes and shapes. Since the design and planning phases can be confusing, our team of professionals goes the extra mile to do everything from measuring to offering a rent-to-own purchase for ease and convenience.
When it comes to our region, storms and heavy winds are always a concern. If you are going to invest in a portable building, make sure to choose one that can withstand the elements of the South and still stand strong. At Portable Buildings by Ravenel, we offer only the highest-quality portable sheds, buildings, and garages to suit all of your needs. We go the extra mile to ensure that your investment is sound.
