Standards and Features of Countryside Shed Construction

Sure, a shed′s not the Taj Mahal, but when it comes to your shed construction, we know you want a solid building that was cut straight without cutting any corners. Whether for outdoor tool storage or any kind of storage, you have a right to know what goes into your shed before you buy it. At Countryside Sheds, we not only try to build an exceptional shed, we aim to be transparent about our building standards and features.

Questions and Answers

Will my riding lawnmower or 4-wheeler fit through your standard door?

Usually not. Even though our standard custom door is an extra-wide 43″, it is recommended to upgrade to at least a 5′ double door (6′ is also available) or a roll-up style door. A ramp will be needed also, as the floor is around 7–8″ from the ground. We offer these as options. Call for pricing.

Does the building come painted?

No. However, each building does come factory primed and caulked along the vital areas (around the door, vents, eaves, etc.) and is ready to paint. We use DURATEMP© plywood siding that comes pre-primed with exterior latex primer. The manufacturer recommends a quality topcoat of exterior paint be applied. Do not use vinyl acrylic exterior paint.

We offer custom painting as an upgrade option on every building—using professional paint sprayers and brushes. We can custom match paint to almost everything. Please let us know at the time you place your order for a price quote. Some stock buildings may be painted already.

How tall are the buildings?

Measurements listed are taken from the top of the ridge cap of the roof to the bottom of the floor runners sitting on the ground. Your final height depends on the elevation of the blocks used on the runners.

Gable/Garage Style:

  • 8′ wide= 9′ 9″ tall
  • 10′ wide= 10′ 10″ tall (11′ 10″ with a 7/12 pitch roof)
  • 12′ wide= 11′ 4″ tall
  • 14′ wide = 11′ 8″ tall

Quaker Style:

  • 8′ wide = 9′ 4″ tall
  • 10′ wide = 9′ 11″ tall
  • Mini-Barn Style:
  • 8′ wide = 8′ 6″ tall
  • 10′ wide = 9′8″ tall
  • Tall Barn Style:
  • 10′ wide = 12′ 3″ tall
  • 12′ wide = 13′ 4″ tall

How much do the buildings weigh?

This varies by a number of factors. But a few sizes are listed below for a “ball park″ reference:

  • 8′ × 10′ Gable = 1700 pounds
  • 8′ × 12′ Gable = 1800 pounds
  • 10′ × 12′ Gable = 2425 pounds
  • 10′ × 16′ Gable = 2950 pounds
