I came came Accross your article Suncast 50 Gallon outdoor deck storage with bench.
It was a good read, I have a small deck area and I never really gave the idea of have a bench and a storage container in one.
I am a bit concerned about the Suncast outdoor storage container not being water proof.
Would you have a solution you could recommend, or maybe another product I could check out?
Most resin outdoor storage solutions are not going to be water proof. They are weather proof. This means that unless you have a leak or leave the lid or door open, your stuff will stay dry. If the weather outside is really humid, water can get into your container.
Unless your container is build like a cooler it will have some issues with bugs and moisture. These type of storage solutions are out there, they are just very expensive.
