The Northwood model provides a 2nd level loft floor of OSB (oriented strand board) for those "where do I put it?" items.
Our Northwood includes a loft to provide additional storage without taking a lot of yard space.
A loft provides an ideal, out of the way area for storing seasonal decorations, small boxes, chair cushions and smaller items.
A 4' deep loft floor is provided at each end of the building. Drawing shows a loft floor in a 10x10 building. The 14' long building will have 3 truss spaces between the loft floor.
Optional single hung windows with screens & decorative wood shutters.
Single hung windows 18" x 27" aluminum windows provide light and ventilation. Lockable frames are durable and easy to operate. Screens limit birds and insects. Decorative raised panel vinyl shutters are ready to paint.
Decorative octagonal gable windows illuminate interiors, beautify exteriors.
Our wood floor systems offer two designs that let you choose what is best suited for your needs.
The standard floor is best installed over and existing founcation, cement slab, blacktop or gravel base. Bricks or patio stones can be used to level the 2x4 treated framing. The standard floor includes treated 2x4's 16" o.c. and 5/8" OSB ( Oriented Strand Board ).
The deluxe floor includes 4x4 treated runners which gives support for the floor joists and allows you to set the foundation directly on grass. By raising the foundation above the ground the 4x4's provide for air flow which eliminates moisture. The deluxe floor includes 4x4 treated runners, treated 2x4's 16" o.c. and 3/4" plywood.
Nails are included. Floor requires cutting and assembly. Floor sheathing is not treated.
Purchased as a pair these brackets ship unpainted and will add to the appeal of your new shed kit.
As promised here are some photos of my project. I still need to add the decorative brackets, the shutters and add a small deck in front of the building and ramp. I will send a final photo or two in a few weeks whenall of that is done. For now, my body needs a rest!
Thanks, it was a fun project and I am looking forward to moving my garden equipment in it real soon.
