MOST POPULAR BARN SHED OPTIONS FOR STORAGE
There are some popular accessories people tend to choose with their barn storage shed. The most popular are ramps to get your lawn tractor, ATV, golf cart or other vehicle in and out with ease. Next in line are finishing touches like an over door solar light, skylights or upgraded architectural shingles which are completely worth it on a barn shed since so much of the barn building is roof. The architecture of the barn shed is typically referred to as gambrel style due to the characteristic pitch and shape of the roof.
CHOOSE A WOOD BARN WITH A STORAGE LOFT
Beyond the visual appeal, people often select the barn style because it has a significant amount of overhead storage space in the loft area. Many wood barns have lofts included for storing seasonal items. Depending on the size of your building you should consult your local building codes before starting any shed project, as you might need a building permit. In addition, the terrain needs to be within 6 inches of level. The gambrel roof has four roof planes, two on each side of the ridge. The upper slope is constructed using a shallow angle, while the lower angle is steeper. This design creates a larger space under the roof structure that greatly increases overhead area, making the shed feel much larger. Now everyone can have a barn in their back yard.
