Standard Shed Specifications

Your Shed, Your Way!

Whether you prefer the classic look of wood or want the benefit of maintenance-free vinyl, we can customize any shed to meet your needs. We build sheds in a variety of sizes and styles to best suit your design preferences and tastes. Popular shed style options include Cape Cod, A-Frame, Lean-To, Quaker, Dutch Barn, Barn, or Mini barn.

Once you pick your style and shed size, choose between vinyl or DuraTemp engineered siding. Next, select your color scheme for the walls, trim, and shingles. You have a choice of 11 different vinyl colors and 14 different colors for the wood-sided sheds. All that remains is to decide where you want your doors and windows. Then sit back and let us build your shed to order! You can find more details about our standard shed specifications below.

Some sites may need work outside of the details outlined in the standard shed specifications above before we can begin building your shed. This is to ensure the structural integrity of the shed for years to come. You may also want to add custom features to make your shed function best for you. Below are some options for site work and shed customizations.
