Our Story

Click to view our YouTube channel.

1995 was the year the company was born. The idea was conceived during a four year excursion across the United States working as a carpenter. The shed market all across the country has been supplying flimsy, ugly outbuildings with few choices. After studying firsthand the many architectural styles around the country (including Frank Lloyd Wright) several cottage designs emerged. From our earliest beginnings experimenting with dog houses, we knew we could provide a superior product using native lumber and Vermont craftsmen.

In 2004 Jamaica Cottage Shop, Inc. purchased a manufacturing facility two miles north of our beginnings in Jamaica. Our current 70,000 square foot factory allows all products to be built indoors. We expanded the product line and developed the cottage sheds to include the current pre-cut post and beam kits. Today, Jamaica Cottage Shop produces the finest wood sheds and cottages anywhere, and we ship all our creations such as our prefab storage sheds, prefab cottage kits, wood shed kits & more, all over the United States and Canada.
