Cottage Overhang Kit
Featuring Post and Beam construction with a treated sill plate, hemlock framing and corrugated metal roof; this overhang is a perfect match to our Vermont Cottage or most other Jamaica Cottage Shop designs that are 16′ wide. Purchasable in a wide variety of sizes.
This overhang is designed for Vermont Cottages and fits most other Jamaica Cottage Shop designs that are 16' wide. This Overhang design features fly rafters to match these designs. A lean-to, side overhang is an easy, and cost-effective, way to increase built-in storage space or shelter for a shed, barn or garage. Canoes and kayaks, recreational vehicles, snowmobiles, tractors, and firewood are some of the objects that are usually kept under an overhang. Side overhangs provide overhead protection while conveniently increasing access for items that get frequent use. Gaining additional storage is the key reason someone would purchase an overhang, but they can also be used for other functions. Some examples could include a covered backyard dining/seating and grilling area, outdoor vendor display space, or farm stand shopping area.
This 4x4 post and beam overhang is designed to provide maximum structural stability to buildings like the One Bay Garage, Vermont Cottage and our 16' wide Barns.
