Can anyone recommend someone to make a wood garbage can shed like the one in this picture for the front of our brownstone? Opens at front and on top. Wood should be relatively weather resistant (I know it's wood so it's not going to last forever). Dimensions approx 56L x 30W x 36H. Want someone who will take measurements, build and finish in off-site shop, then deliver.
Sorry, not interested in the metal ones recommended on other posts.
What should I expect to pay for something like this?
Glad to see this post because we will be building trash corrals for two clients and may make a few more to get economies of scale. Size similar to the unit in your photo, but design similar to the attached photo (minus the planter, although that's an option). We're making one in cedar, and the other potentially of ipe (which is considerably more expensive). Still pricing out materials, but the cedar unit including labor, delivery and install will be around $1800. Costs will come down if we build more, so if you or anyone else reading this are interested, please let me know.

I know i've reccomended them before but have you considered a MetroBox made out of metal? we've owned ours for about a year now and still look like new.

Wow, I pity the poor homeowner who's buying the checklist bins pictured. Even higher-end Country Casual sells teak bins for less (countrycasual.com/Trash-Receptacles.aspx). Lots of other online commercial vendors selling them for even less. Or try walking along PPW between 5th-7th St. There used to be wooden bins in a front yard with a probably local maker's tag glued to the back.
