Shed Siding Example


The Northwood model provides a 2nd level loft floor of OSB (oriented strand board) for those "where do I put it?" items.

Shed Kit Loft

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.

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.

Northwood Shed Kit
"Mission accomplished - we purchased a shed kit from you guys July 21 -- arrived about 9 days later. Between work, vacation, etc.... we just finished it"
  1. I would give you guys a 4.8 out of 5 stars.
  2. Suggestions to improve the product:
    • there was no step 3 in the instructions; - Webmasters note: ( corrected typo )
    • my kit had 4 boxes of 7D nails and one box of 10D -- I think it should have been 2 each (I had to buy a box of 10D nails -- $10.00 for 5 pounds) -- when the shed was finished, I had one box of 7D left over -- no big deal -- always nice to have nails on hand.
    • add instructions for windows -- mine had none -- none in the window box as well; and
    • throw in two tubes of silicon to seal small cracks.
  3. "I have already had three neighbors request your website -- I gave it to them gladly."
  4. "I am in law enforcement and we have four kids. We budgeted $3K for a shed -- figured it would be fun experience for the family -- and it was. I checked into Lowe's and Home Depot -- pricing for similar sheds were around $3800.00. With the kit, flooring, paint, etc... we spent right at $2850.00 -- excellent value. The kit arrived within advised time period -- the delivery man from Home Depot was skeptical -- made us a bit nervous. Nevertheless, we were not dismayed. I am good at following directions -- directions and pictures were excellent. I am not a carpenter and the shed was fairly easy to install with three people (myself, 18 year old son, and 10 year old son). End product looks excellent! Very satisfied customer."
