The Cape Cod’s 7/12 pitched roof gives it great style, and more headroom for overhead storage. Add a garage door to make room for that new car in the family!
Top Tip: Align the joists, making sure the diagonals of the floor are equal, before driving in the wood screws. .
In order to help us and others understand the detailed nature of your project, please include as many details as possible. For instance, if you had a pool installed, tell us the size. If you had a fence, share how many gates, the height, etc. Details are the most important part of this.

Use our Shed Designer to build your own portable building or storage shed. It’s easy to use and will allow you to customize your building to suit your needs!
Although it is cheaper to build your own utility shed, buying the shed is better bang for your buck. This is because the quality of a professionally built shed will be higher than a kit; shed builders buy in bulk, which saves money. Other things to take into consideration are your time and the hassle of trying to build one yourself. By purchasing through a quality-built shed company you can spend your time elsewhere and save yourself a hassle, while getting top-notch quality!
But fads have changed and so has the taste and design of WOODEN SHEDS. For 2021, if you want a real fancy shed (and yes, a bit more maintenance), you’re back to wooden shed choices! You can still buy the economy wooden sheds that have been around for decades and they come in much better wooden siding choices.
An item that people are sometimes surprised by is the portable garages. We deliver directly to your location, completely built, and ready to drive your car into portable building. Our garages have a complete floor, built-in and ready for a car or light truck. They have timber beam floors with ply covering and are strong enough to carry the weight and durable enough to last for decades. We prefer roll-up doors and recommend an entry door on the side of the building.
Our standard 10×12 Minibarn storage shed is our entry-level model. It has the classic minibarn look, with room for double doors on one end and a single window on the other. This shed will serve you well and won’t make a huge hole in your wallet. A small loft at one end would work nicely.
What exactly are portable storage buildings? Some people may refer to them as a pre-built shed or a pre-built cabin, but they are simply a portable storage building that is completely assembled and ready to use. They are delivered in one piece to your location and set up by our experienced delivery person within just a couple of hours and it’s 100% ready to use when we leave.
I have two lean-to structures on each side of my barn. One has a cement floor, and the other is dirt.
As for moving it, the shed is tougher to move than other sheds. If moving it from one house to another you will need a pickup or similar to move this. It will require some planning on your part. Although moving this shed does void the warranty, reviewers seem to have no problem moving it around.
Our outdoor Storage Barns are built with a classic barn-style roof but have lower sidewalls than the lofted buildings as they do not have any overhead loft areas. These prefab storage sheds are a functional and economical storage solution for all your yard and garden tools. You will also notice that our Storage Barns are designed without windows so that no part of the structure will be damaged if a rake or shovel falls over.
You should also check my plans for building a large 8×16 firewood shed that can hold up to 6 cords. This is a super simple structure with a lean to roof, but this is exactly what you need if you want to get the job done yourself and keep the costs down. MORE >>
Customers and dealers may purchase on line and have their order available for pick up at our Milford, CT location. Our warehouse staff will assist you with loading boxes into/onto your car or truck. Loading boxes is done at no extra charge. All items that are picked up will be subject to Connecticut state sales tax. To complete this process, please select “In Store Pick Up” under delivery options and use our address as the delivery address Learn More.
Outdoor storage sheds do more than give your car a stable roof. They hide poor landscaping. They simplify your life. Most importantly, they are not too expensive and easy to build yourself. All in all, it seems like a no-brainer.
NOTE: Footprint of 12', 14', and 16' wide buildings are approximately 7 inches less than stated width.
They come as Classic Wooden Sheds and Classic Vinyl Sided Sheds and Barns. As with all of our outdoor sheds and barns, the Backyard Classic Buildings can be customized in many ways to meet your specific needs.
