All About The Equipment Shed
The Equipment Storage Shed design is a must have for the equipment operator, hearty homesteader, or big toy collector. 6″x6″ Post and Beam construction with 2″x12″ Box Beams provides a robust yet easy to build structure. The saltbox roof style sheds most of the snow and rain to the back of the building. For a three-bay garage, pick one of the 36 foot wide styles. For even more storage, we also offer a four-bay, 48 foot wide size. Add windows to give it even more natural light, a great idea when using as a workshop. Install your own garage doors for vehicle storage, or partitions to create stalls for livestock and animals. This versatile design and rugged frame provide an affordable solution for your shelter needs that will last for years and years to come.
Choose Your Size
We offer our Equipment Shed in sizes ranging from 720′ to 1,152′ square feet. This Pre-Cut Kit can be purchased in the following sizes: 20’x36′, 24’x36′ and 24’x48′. The 36-foot-long buildings have three rough openings. The 48-foot-long shed has four openings.
• Complete Shell – With this package you get everything needed to set up the Equipment Shed shell. A treated sill plate, hemlock wall and roof framing, siding, and a metal roof come with this package. This jumbo storage shed may be ordered as a Pre-Cut Kit delivered anywhere in the Continental United States and parts of Canada.
Each type of building comes with default options that match our specifications. However, if you want to personalize your garage, barn or workshop, we have made that process a breeze. As you go through each step, you’ll be able to pick and choose which options you want.
• Strengthen – Our post and beam Equipment Shed was designed with New England weather conditions in mind. But that doesn’t mean you can’t strengthen it even more. Roof rafters can be upgraded to 16” on center for an increased snow load rating.
• Personalize – Enhance the look of your shed by choosing a different siding, or roofing. We offer a variety of pine and cedar siding choices. Roofing material comes in a variety of corrugated metal colors, cedar shingles, or clear poly roof panels. For those who want to change up the look from the classic board and batten siding, we have some ideas. Consider upgrading the siding to vertical shiplap pine. This streamlined siding choice will add a touch of elegance to your barn. Plus, without the need of battens, installing shiplap will be quicker to finish. Since many people use this building as a garage or backyard workshop, architectural asphalt shingles are a great way to match existing buildings on your property.
• Add-Ons – A premium trim package creates a polished look to the roof while using enclosure strips to close up the gaps in the metal roofing rib pattern. If you need some storage for your larger handled tools add some peg racks to the wall framing.
