One Garden Shed to Rule Them All

A wise person once said, “I’ve never seen elegance go out of style.” They might not have been thinking of a garden shed, but the Cottage Style shed fits the bill anyway! Created with a design reminiscent of cottages from years past, this shed is built to look good in any backyard or garden while still providing functional tool or lawnmower storage. 

The Cottage Style shed comes standard with a 20″ overhang above the door. However, that overhang can be extended to a full 4′. You can even add a deck and a beautiful wooden railing with pickets! There are also a variety of door and window options to give your garden shed exactly the feel you’re looking for.

We’re here to help with every step in the process of creating your garden shed. Whether you need help with design ideas, color selection, or window and door placement, you have our assistance. We love to hear new ideas, so if you have something in mind that you don’t see on our list of features and options, share it with us to get a custom quote!
