This custom shed / workshop was built with 9' walls at 16" o.c. and a 8/12 roof pitch allowing for loft storage inside.
Building a better shed:
The foundation of this shed is made of 4000 pound concrete with #4 rebar throughout the footer and slab.
The walls are 2x4 construction at 16" o.c. The roof framing is 2x6 construction with 3/4" tongue and groove roof decking.
The siding on this shed is 'board and batten' style. We used LP smartside products for greater strength and durability.
The stone veneer at the bottom of the shed sits on a concrete ledge, which was designed into the footer.
The metal roofing on this shed is designed to rust but contains a special formulation of metals so that once a patina of rust has formed, the rusting process will be inhibited. This is different than bare steel which will continue to rust. This special formula is sold under the the CoreTen name as well as other brand names.
Door and Window:
The front door on this shed is a custom 7' tall fiberglass solid-core door with 'rain' glass in the half-lite at the top.
The window on this shed is a vinyl, energy efficient, dual-pane window.
For the inside of the shed, we sprayed all the walls and ceilings with a coat of pure white paint to make the inside clean and bright.
The Exterior Paint is 2-coats of Dunn-Edwards premium paint in a low-sheen finish.
Yes, this shed is built far better than your home...
Estimated cost: $20,000.00
Why we build things to last.... just in case the world doesn't end tomorrow, your great great grandchildren will bless you for hiring us!
