    As long as it keeps the rain out I don't see why it wouldn't

    It would also help if it keeps the varmits out too. If you can get power to it throw a cover over her and put a damp chaser rod or Golden rod under her and it will help keep it free from condensation.

    Just a small thing to add.

    Some of the storage sheds come with thin plastic floors. Make certain the entire floor is supported well! A soft, spongy floor would be a miserable place to roll a bike in and out of. You might also consider a small piece of plywood under the jiffy stand so the stand doesn't wear a hole, or a soft spot in the floor.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    Cheers!

    The shed should just about be big enough to get the bike into but will leave little or no room for doing any maintenance
    As it is hard for me to tell on line how the floor of the shed is put together it is a point to consider as it needs to be strong enough to hold a bike and be waterproof enough so that damp is not drawn from the ground
    Preparation of the ground the shed will sit on is essential to ensure it is level

    Check zoning codes.
    Some areas (mine included) need a building permit.
    Had to pay $50 and fill out a placement diagram for my lot.
    Asked "What if I moved the shed to another spot in the lot"?
    Then I'd have to get another permit.
    I live in the county. Where is the freedom?

    Had to get some for my temp. storage covers What a rip....
    The local store has a sign on their display to check local zoning laws.
