Our two-story Gambrel Barns are versatile buildings that can fulfill many purposes. Typical uses for the first floor are garage, workshop, or even future living area. The second floor is often used for residential storage, hobby area, recreation room, office, or guest house. Depending on your local zoning code, it can even be used as a second unit. The second floor is engineered to carry a live load sufficient for all residential purposes. Our basic barns all come with a 16’ x 7’ steel sectional overhead garage door, a steel side door, and (3) dual-glazed windows up to 6’ x 4’ in size, Smartside® brand wood siding, and 20 year rated composition shingles in your choice of colors.

First, I called and wanted a 8 x 6 metal shed. Jack faxed me specs and I purchased it over the phone with him. The shed was put up that Saturday in approximately, and to my amazement, 45 minutes.
A few months later I stopped by Quality Sheds because I wanted a 12 x 8 wood shed so that my three Great Granddaughters would have a “doll house” to play in. Again Jack helped me choose windows, the door, the roof, etc. and my new “doll house” was build that next Saturday, (approx. 5-6 hours). The children just love it!
Then last month I needed a 12 x 12 wood shed for my grandson to use as his “office/work area” as he and my granddaughter and their 3 years were moving in with me. Again, Jack helped me with the windows, vent, etc. and needless to say my grandson is thrilled with his work area. (His 3 year old daughter told him that, daddy you can go play in your playhouse and I can play in mine”). Again, the time it took to build this amazed all of us and the men were meticulous in workmanship and clean up).
Low and behold a week later I needed a new shed so that I could put my things away and stopped by to see Jack again. My new wood shed (8 x 6) is situated next the first one.
I just want to let you know that I truly appreciate the knowledge and helpfulness from Jack; the quality of the work that the men did (one came to my home three times); and that I wouldn’t hesitate to send friends and family to Quality Sheds for any of their needs.
They truly are QUALITY SHEDS.
