The Amish are probably best known for the quality, 100% handmade furniture they make, like coffee tables and bowback chairs. What many people don’t realize is that they’re also some of the best builders of sheds and garages as well. Amish sheds are not only beautiful, but they also provide you with a long-lasting place to store tools, seasonal items, and whatever else you can’t fit in your house. A wooden shed typically lasts between 15 and 20 years. Many Amish sheds last much longer. Here are three of the different styles most Amish shops will offer if you’re looking for a quality shed.
1.) Classic/Traditional: This is your typical Amish shed design. Traditional trim, plywood sheathing, and asphalt shingles. While they can come in different sizes, generally these will be on the smaller side with less extra accessories. When you think of a stereotypical yard shed, this is probably what comes to mind. A solid choice for any homeowner, especially those on a budget.
2.) New England: New England models will have an enhanced look compared to the traditional. They feature premium window, door, and corner trimmings, antique style hinges, and deluxe door options. As the name suggests these types of sheds will look very similar to New England style houses, just shrunk down in size.
3.) Heritage: Call them heritage, log cabin, or wood style these Amish sheds are for those that want a classic, country look to their shed. With different choices of wood options like pine and cedar these are some of the most visually appealing sheds out there and are sure to grab the attention of neighbors and passerby’s.
No matter what your preference of style, when you choose authentic Amish sheds you’re guaranteed to get a quality product that you’ll enjoy looking at for years to come. Keep in mind when ordering a shed to add about 25% onto the size you currently need for future needs.
