Any advice on locating a beekeeping supplies storage shed?

when I first got into beekeeping, we were keeping our bees in our back yard. For various reasons we ended up moving the hives out to some property my parents own about 60 miles away, and it can be a bit of a PIA to keep hauling things like brood boxes and supers back and forth, so I was thinking it might be convenient to have a shed out by the bee yard to store stuff like that. That being said, the bees also seem to get pretty curious if I've got any hive bodies with drawn comb within about 60 feet or so of the hives.

If I were to setup a shed right next to the bee yard, am I just inviting robbing behavior when I'm doing things like putting away wet supers?

Should I be trying to locate the shed farther away from the bee yard? If so, how far away?

Any other advice on setting up a shed?
