Keeping air flowing around your woodpile is a very crucial part of firewood seasoning.
You say the garage and basement don’t provide enough room to store your tools and equipment. On the other hand, you want a place to relax after a long day of work, but the living room doesn’t offer enough quality… .
The Classic Amish Storage Sheds is a step up from our Standard Economy Garden Sheds and Barns. They add a wider overhang, steeper roof pitch, and a few other fancy features to make your Classic Amish Built Storage Shed more than the norm.
Thanks, Eric! I know there’s a company that has samples up at the Elkhart County Fair every year. (Amish LOVE the fair! But then, we all do. 🙂 ) I think I pick up a brochure almost every year to nurture my fantasy of having a rustic hunting cabin someday. If I find the information, I will add it here. Comment on metal strip across the doors of our min barn (September 22nd, 2016 at 20:13) We currently have an Amish Mini barn, however, the metal strip across the door has become damaged. We would like to replace the strip. do you know where we might purchase it. I know we would have to get the size of the barn doors. but we first need to find out if you even supply them without selling the entire barn?
Do you want to store up to 2 cords of firewood and do it in an economic and safe manner? Nothing is easier than that, as you can just check out my free set of plans dedicated to this topic. This shed features a lean to roof with 3 sides that are properly enclosed, while the front is open for an easy access inside. Make sure you use the skids because that lifts the frame from the ground and protects the components from moisture. This is a simple design that you can use for years in a row. MORE >>
If you do go the professional route, as our sheds cost estimators indicate, expect to pay $500 for a basic shed, in addition to the labor costs I mentioned above. However, if you plan on using the shed for over five years, you should bite the bullet and invest in a higher quality shed.
That's right - we can customize your shed in thousands of different configurations. From different floor plans, options, finishes, the possibilities are endless.
Our structures are built to order, carefully, by hand, the way the carpenter builds a house. Standard wood framing techniques and materials are used, scaled to shed dimensions. Door openings are framed, and double swinging doors are reinfoced in a decorative pattern.
Electrical work is of more concern due to the risk involved. This is especially true if you’ll be installing a circuit or two in the electrical panel dedicated to the shed. It’s not uncommon to DIY a shed and hire an electrician to wire it.
