Are you trying to compare Home Depot Tuff Sheds vs. Heartland Sheds from Lowes? I did all the research so you don’t have to!

Do you need a permit to put up a Tuff Shed? What are the similarities and differences between the Home Depot Tuff Shed vs. Heartland Shed from Lowes? Are Tuff Sheds good and would you buy one again?

See how I made some really inexpensive PVC pipe curtain rods to hold long, sheer porch curtains for around $15. After getting all the supplies at Lowe’s, I was able to measure, cut, and install the outdoor curtain rods and hang the curtain panels on my front porch in about 1 hour myself. They are holding up perfectly (even after storms and heavy gusts of wind). And they look great!
