Jamaica Cottage Shop has designed a building to compete with the pre-fabricated tinker toy sheds found at franchise home supply super stores. We are pleased to offer this popular post and beam design as DIY backyard shed plans. The 5’0” double doors are large enough to fit a riding lawn mower, ATV, or a couple motorcycles. The versatile shed has been used in many ways from general storage to a play house or turned into a great little potting shed tucked away by the garden. No Plywood is used in the Vermonter. It is built the same way they have been for centuries with native Vermont Lumber.
Rugged post and beam techniques passed down through the centuries are being applied to pre cut and notch this storage shed kit into a sturdy picturesque outbuilding reminiscent of old New England. The wood storage shed kits are hand made with rough sawn hemlock and pine lumber, the package includes all fastening hardware, metal roofing and step by step plans.
The kit is designed for a novice wood worker with basic skills. Technical support is provided via our toll free support line. The cottage shed kit takes approxi- mately twenty hours to assemble. Step by step DIY backyard shed plans may be purchased separately which include a material shopping list to provide your own rough cut lumber. The post and beam shed kits in the picture have been stained and customized with red cedar shingle roofing.
