Why Quaker Shed
This Quaker style garden shed gets its name from the unique styled roof that it has. In the 1600’s in Colonial America, this style house became famous as a way to reduce taxes since the long sloping roof often was considered part of the first floor. Designed after the small boxes where most people stored their salt, this style was popular and common until the 1800s. Although many years later, there are still many sheds being built with this unique roof style.

Questions and Answers
How tall is the Quaker Garden shed?
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.
Quaker Shed Height:
- 8′ wide = 9′ 4″ tall
- 10′ wide = 9′ 11″ tall
Does the Quaker Shed pricing include painting?
Our standard pricing for sheds delivered factory primed and caulked along the vital areas (around the door, vents, eaves, etc.) and 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.
Painting is an optional upgrade on the quaker shed and any of our buildings. Your portable wood shed will be painted with 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 do I prepare my site prior to the delivery of the building?
You will need a level spot for the building. If you place your building on cement, asphalt, or gravel you do not need any cement blocks placed under the runners. If you are placing your building over grass or dirt, you may choose to use either cement blocks to place under the runners or prepare a bed of gravel. For more information see site preparation.
