A traditional New England design, the sugar shack is still used today to boil maple syrup. These shed building plans (12×16 and 12×20) come standard for a non-working sugar shack, meaning the cupola is strictly decorative. If you would like a functional sugar shack you can upgrade to a venting cupola which has opening sides where the steam escapes. In the springtime a large cloud of smoke and steam can be seen rising high above a sugar shack. Whether you intend to use this building as cabin, a working Sugar Shack, or a workshop the Sugar Shack design compliments any landscape.
