Shed Styles in Virginia at Alan's Factory Outlet

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Fri, Mar 29, 2013

Shed Styles:  Storage Shed Styles available for delivery in Virginia and West Virginia at Alan's Factory Outlet

There are several different shed styles of wood and vinyl storage sheds to choose from at Alan's Factory Outlet. 

The shortest and cheapest shed is the mini barn.  Also called a 4' mini barn because it has 4' sidewalls.  It is 8' at the peak, which gives you enough room to walk inside but not really enough space for a loft.

                                      4' mini barn shed style

The style shed with the most storage space is the dutch barn which is basically 2' 6" taller than the mini barn.  The dutch barn sheds are built in wooden and vinyl siding.  All of the other style buildings including the dutch barn have two windows.  The one shed style that only has 1 window is the mini barn.

All of the Amish built sheds are custom ordered in the color, size and style you want with delivery available in all of VA and WV.

Another of the shed styles to pick from is the a-frame shed which has a triangle shaped gable roof line.

Keep in mind that there is a whole variety of color options for the wood and vinyl sheds.  Here are the wood shed colors and the vinyl shed colors

                                  A-frame style storage shed

The a-frame shed has 7' walls from the ground to the roof line.  Since the floor is 7" off of the ground because of the 4"x4" pressure treated foundation skids and the 2"x4" floor joists that are 16" on center and the 5/8" plywood floor this means the head room inside is closer to 7' 4" on the sides with more headroom room towards the center. 

If your looking for a taller a-frame shed we have a high wall a-frame that is 1' taller than the a-frame shed.  The high wall a-frame shed has 8' sidewalls.  This gives you approximately 7' 4" headroom on the inside sidewall.

The 5th most popular style shed is the quaker shed which has an off set roof and a 1' overhang on one side where the doors go.

All 5 of these styles of sheds are available fully assembled and in wood sheds kits in 13 different sizes ranging from 6x6 to 10x20 in size.  The do it yourself shed kits are precut and painted with the doors and windows all ready put in the location you want them.  All of the hardware required to build it is included with each kit.  Shed kits are a great way to get the quality of an Amish shed in a location where a truck and trailer would not be able to deliver a fully assembled building.

Both the fully assembled pre-built sheds and wood shed kits are delivered for free in 21 local counties in VA and WV.  All of northern Virginia is included in the free delivery area for the storage sheds. 

So now that you have got a chance to see the pictures of the most popular styles of sheds available at Alan's Factory Outlet.  What next?  The only thing better than a picture is a video tour of several different styles of sheds with a few extra styles of buildings we have yet to talk about like a hip roof shed, one car garages, 2 car garage and the big two story 2 car garage barn along with a metal garage and carport in a tour of the display area.

Your always invited during daylight hours 7 days a week to look at the sheds in person at 643 West Main Street Luray, VA 22835 as they are always unlocked for you to walk through and look at with the size, style and price inside each shed.  Alan's Factory Outlet new office hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 8am to 5pm so feel free to stop bye, call or email any questions you have about the sheds.

Alan's Factory Outlet Reviews of Portable Buildings

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Sat, Oct 20, 2012

Alan's Factory Outlet Reviews Your Portable Storage Building Options

As we review Alan's Factory Outlet building options we will take a look at the different types of buildings to choose from and the pros and cons of each option.  Depending on what your price budget and needs are will help determine which of the storage building is a best fit for you. 

alans factory outlet reviews portable storage buildings availableAlan's Factory Outlet reviews the key differences in the kinds of sheds and garages available.  So the most affordable option is definitely the portable metal carports and portable metal garages.  Of course the carports are less money because they only give you a roof protection but sometimes that is all you need.  All of the portable metal buildings are built on site and get delivered to you as a kit and than we will install it for you in most sizes in one day.  Alan's Factory Outlet metal garages are fully enclosed and come with a roll up garage door or 2 garage doors depending on the size you buy.

So the advantages of the portable steel buildings is that they are the most economical options, built on site which comes in handy if you don't have enough room for a truck and trailer to delivery a fully assembled portable storage building.  The metal siding used on them is 29 ga with 14 ga tubing and you can upgrade to a thicker 12 ga tubing which will give you a 20 year rust through warranty.  There is a 30 day craftsmanship warranty on all of the steel buildings.  One thing about all of the metal buildings is that they are constructed without a floor.  They are anchored for free to the ground, gravel, asphalt or cement.  The foundation for the carport or metal storage building needs to be level.  The metal buildings are delivered and installed in 27 states in the USA.

Alan's Factory Outlet reviews the options available on the metal portable buildings

  • Certified carports and certified metal garages which are rated for 130 mph wind and 30 psf snow load and come with blue print drawings
  • Taller leg heights up to 12' on the side to fit a motor home or other tall objects
  • Add a 36" walk in door or windows to the metal storage building and you get to pick the location for them
  • 13 different colors including a roof color, side color and trim color

The next category of storage buildings we will review are the wood and vinyl siding Amish built sheds and garages at Alan's Factory Outlet.  They are made as portable wood storage buildings and portable vinyl storage buildings.  They are delivered fully assembled and can be ordered with or without a floor depending on your needs.  It is the same price with or without a floor.  The sidewalls and roof is constructed with 2"x4" studs 16" on center.  The wood siding comes with a 25 year warranty and the vinyl siding has a limited lifetime warranty.  The wood and vinyl portable structures come with a 40 year pressure treated foundation that touches the ground. 

The wood siding structures are cost less than the vinyl due to the vinyl being made with a 1/2" plywood interior and then with vinyl siding and wrapped with metal trim around the roof line and around the doors so that no wood is exposed. 

All of the Amish built wood and vinyl buildings come with a 1 year craftsmanship warranty and are delivered in all of Virginia and West Virginia with free delivery in the 21 local Counties in VA and WV.

The other type of Amish built buildings at Alan's Factory Outlet are the board batten and cedar sheds and garages.  These buildings are the most expensive type of portable building with the board and batten being the less expensive of the 2 sidings.  The key characteristic that sets the board and batten apart from the rest is that it is made with 1" thick eastern white pine siding and has the strongest of all the floors available with a 2"x8" tongue and groove plank floor.  Another spec that separates the board and batten portable buildings is that it is made with oak framing. 

All of the wood, vinyl, cedar and board & batten Amish built storage buildings are delivered fully assembled so the one drawback is you will need to make sure you have enough room for it to be delivered into your back yard or the location you want it to go.  On most of the sizes of portable sheds and portable garages you will need 14' high clearance and 16' wide clearance if it is a straight back in delivery.  This would even apply to the 2 car garages and 2 story 2 car garages since they are delivered in 2 sections and on the two story version the roof is hinged and raised on site after it is delivered.

Thank you for reading the Alan's Factory Outlet review of your portable building options.
