Weston Potting Shed Features
The first of this potting shed kit design sits on a hillside in prestigious Weston, Vermont. The Weston Potting Shed has an enclosed shed like space to store tools, a sheltered workstation, and a generous overhang on top of it all. The workstation features a built-in workbench with a cabinet beneath. The enclosed section has double doors for easy access. This building was originally designed to be used in the garden; however, it would be a great addition to any landscape and has great potential for a myriad of uses. Many start seeds and pot plants under the three-sided workstation, while storing their lawnmower, gardening tools and soil in the enclosed shed. This post and beam shed could also be used as a workshop, bicycle shed, or convert it into a chicken coop.
Choose Your Size & Type
Decide how large you want your Weston Potting Shed. We offer it in sizes ranging from 6’x14′ up to 10’x16′. Pre-cut kits ship anywhere in the continental United States and parts of Canada. If your building site is located up to 300 miles of our factory, it may be possible to order a fully assembled greenhouse.
• Complete Shell – This package includes everything needed to complete the Weston Potting Shed. Hemlock floor system, rough sawn hemlock wall and roof framing, Eastern White Pine board and batten siding, double doors doors, barn sash windows, built-in workbench/cabinet and a corrugated metal roof come with this build.
The Weston Potting Shed comes with default options that match the specifications. You are able to upgrade the flooring, siding, and roofing to different styles if you find that appealing. We have a rundown of popular customization options:
• Strengthen – The rafters in this shed get installed 24” on center. This placement is strong enough for long New England winters, but in some places, you may need a strong weight rating. You can upgrade your building to have 16” on center rafters. If you want to add durability to the floor system you can pick treated flooring options too, or splurge on the tongue and groove floor decking option.
• Personalize – If you want to change up the look of your potting shed, we offer a large variety of options for doing so. Siding choices include pine and cedar varieties. Pick from corrugated metal, architectural asphalt shingles, clear poly panels, and cedar shingles or shakes for roofing. Since this building already has a stately feel, why not deck it out with Western Red Cedar Shingle roofing paired with Cedar Clapboard siding? Not only will this be gorgeous, but cedar naturally repels insects, and is resistant to rot. This pairing could be very beneficial to this design since it works double duty as a storage shed and workspace.
• Add-Ons – Any of our weathervanes would look fantastic on this shed. Install a flowerbox under the barn sash window and install decorative wrought iron brackets to hold hanging flowerpots. Inside utilize peg-racks for storing shovels, rakes, and hoes.
