Amish Storage Sheds

amish storage sheds

Amish storage sheds are wood sheds like the shed in this picture. We also have vinyl sheds if you never want to have to paint again, and board batten sheds if you're looking for a more rustic shed. Alan's Factory Outlet even has cedar sheds for a building that smells like a huge cedar chest. All of these Amish sheds are built by the Amish in our factory and delivered on a truck and trailer to your backyard.

Amish wood sheds are among the best sheds for sale anywhere. Each unit is a high quality Amish storage shed with many uses for the owner. Buy one of these sheds and save money while you are adding useful storage space to your property.

Not every home owner has a large area for delivery and set up of their Amish storage barn. What if you don't have enough room for the truck and trailer to deliver the shed? We have shed kits that are built in select sizes of the wood sheds. The Amish storage shed kits are delivered painted in your choice of color. The doors and windows can be put where you want them. Amish storage shed kits arrive with the walls built and removable with screws on the 4 corners of the shed.

The Amish storage sheds are built in many different sizes and styles. All Amish wood sheds that you purchase can be custom made to suit your needs. When you choose the style of your Amish storage shed you can match your existing home and landscape with both color and style. An Amish storage barn can be a pleasant addition to your property.

Amish built garages are also built in all of the sidings we mentioned earlier. Here is a picture of a 12x24 wood garage. It is possible to have a garage delivered that will match the beautiful Amish storage barn you choose. Call or stop in at Alan's Factory Outlet to place your order. It is also possible to view our designs online.

Amish ShedsAlan's Factory Outlet Amish sheds are delivered to Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland.  Amish storage sheds are built in the factory by the Amish and placed on a delivery truck with a shed trailer.  The 52' long truck and trailer is backed into the location you want your shed placed.  For most buildings you will need 15' wide clearance and 13' high clearance for the truck and trailer to place the shed where you want it. 

Sheds are built in several different sidings such as wood sheds, vinyl sheds, board batten and cedar storage buildings.

Once you have your siding picked out you will want to choose a style and size amish shed.

Sheds VA Shed WV MD Amish ShedsAlan's Factory Outlet Amish Sheds are delivered in VA, WV and MD.

All of the wood and vinyl amish sheds are delivered fully assembled on a pressure treated 4x4 foundation with perpendicular 2x4 joists upright on top of that and a plywood floor above that. 

Shed Foundation 3 Key Benefits

  1. First of all it elevates the floor to approximately 7" off of the ground which allows air flow under the shed to prevent rotting.
  2. Second because it has 4x4 runners it is easily delivered off the shed trailer.
  3. Third if you ever need to move the shed it can be moved because it has the 4x4 foundation which can be put back on the shed trailer and moved to a different location in your yard a few hundred feet away or a few hundred miles away.

Amish Sheds Prefab 10x12 A-Frame Video in Luray VA

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Wed, Dec 22, 2010

The Amish prefab shed in this video is a 10x12 wood highwall a-frame storage shed.  Sheds come in wood or vinyl siding.  Here are the wood sheds and vinyl sheds sizes, styles and prices.  Most Amish sheds have a main color and a trim color that is different, however this storage building has the same white main color and white trim which is an option if you don't want the building to stand out as much.  This building also has white architectural shingles. 

The most unique option on this building are the 8'x7' double doors.  This building has a 5' double door standard but if you need a wider door we can custom build it with a wider or taller door.

A 2nd option you will see in this shed video is optional pressure treated floor which is great a way to help preserve the floor.

How are the Amish Pre-Built Sheds and Garages Delivered?

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Sat, Oct 2, 2010

All of the Amish Sheds and Garages at Alan's Factory Outlet are Pre-Built.  So you will want to make sure you have enough room for the Delivery Truck which is a 3500 4WD Dully and a Shed Trailer which is a 24' long trailer to be able to back in to the location you want your shed or garage.  The total length of the truck and trailer is approximately 52' long.  The widest point is going to be the width of your building.  Generally we need at least 1' on each side of the building so a shed that is 10' wide will need at least 12' wide clearance.  We also need 14' high clearance as the shed or garage is on the shed trailer which is approximately 2' off of the ground. 

Here is a picture of the truck and trailer on a delivery.

Another question customer ask us is how does the building come off of the trailer.  The Trailer tilts up and gravity takes over with the building sliding off and then the truck pulls forward leaving the shed in the desired location.  Here is a picture showing the trailer tilting up.

The Building in the above picture is a 14x20 Recreational Log Cabin which has a 6' front porch.  Modular Log Cabins are also available finished as Log Homes with a Bathroom and Kitchen.

10x16 Vinyl Dutch Barn | Vinyl Storage Buildings | Amish Sheds

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Sat, Sep 18, 2010

Vinyl Storage Sheds Dutch Barn 10x16 VA Virginia

Alan's Factory Outlet has many different sizes and styles of Vinyl Sheds.  The Vinyl Storage Building in the picture above is of a 12x16 Dutch Barn with an optional arched glass door.  All of the Sheds are Amish Built and delivered on a truck and shed trailer fully assembled and ready for you to immediately begin enjoying.  Amish Sheds come with double doors and two windows with shutters.  The shed windows have a screen in them.  Two gable vents are also included with the storage buildings.  Amish sheds are built in several other siding options other than the vinyl 4" dutch lap siding.

Storage Building Siding options by price from the most economical to premium.  

  1. Metal Carports and Metal Garages are the most economical building which is kind of unfair in this comparison due to how it is constructed, however we did want to include it as an option as this may be the best option for some people.  The main advantage with steel buildings is they are built on site.  Metal buildings are actually the only product line that we have that are built on site.  All of our other structures are prebuilt modular structures.  Now to explain the main difference.  The metal buildings are made with 2 1/2" 14 GA tubing which is 5' on center and then 29 GA metal sheeting.  The Amish sheds are made with 2"x4" Joists 16" on center.  So you can see that the prebuilt sheds are built to the specs of a house.   
  2. Wooden Sheds are the most economical siding option of the prebuilt structures.  The wood sheds are built with Duratemp Siding.  The Duratemp siding has a 25 year warranty. 
  3. Vinyl Sheds are the next most economical siding.  Vinyl sheds will never need to be painted and many people have vinyl homes so a vinyl shed just makes sense.  The 4" dutch lap vinyl siding has a limited lifetime warranty.
  4. Board Batten Sheds are a heavy duty rustic alternative.  This is the same type of siding the Horse Barns and Run in Sheds are built with.  The siding is 1" thick eastern white pine siding.
  5. Log Sheds come with a 6' front porch and makes a great hunting cabin or if you have a log home you may want to invest in a log shed to make your shed blend in with your log home.
  6. Cedar Sheds is the premium siding option with 1"x10" Cedar Siding.  Cedar siding is a very durable siding and of course has the nice cedar chest kind of smell.

The movie below is a 10x16 vinyl dutch barn.  The main color on this building is sandlewood, trim green with green doors and shutters.

Amish Storage Sheds & Prefab Garages Delivered to Your Home

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Mon, Jan 18, 2010

Purchase quality, durable and attractive prefab storage buildings that are made just for you! Alan's Factory Outlet sells Amish Storage Sheds, Prefab Garages, and prefab storage shed kits that are delivered to your home. These Amish Sheds are delivered straight from the Amish Factory to You. The prefabricated storage sheds are built in a variety of sizes to fit your needs no matter how small or big they are. The storage sheds are custom-built in the size, style, layout and colors you want. After a stress-free order has been placed online, your prefab storage shed will be delivered quickly.

The Amish Sheds and Prefab Garages are ready for you to begin using right away once delivered with no extra work or hassle! Preparing for the prefabricated storage shed requires very little work. For Most Storage Sheds and Prefab Garages you will want to have 15' Wide clearance for the Truck and Trailer to be able to back in and place the Building where you want it. You will also want to make sure you have at least 13' height clearance. The Truck and Trailer is approximately 50' long so you will want to have 50' in front of where the Shed or garage will be placed. Once the truck and trailer is in the location where you want the building or any of our prefab storage shed kits to go the hydraulic trailer is tilted up and the building slides off the trailer onto your property. It doesn't take long to place your prefab storage shed when the lot is prepared the proper way.

The shed picture above is a great example of a gravel pad. A Gravel pad is the ideal foundation for most buildings, especially prefab storage buildings. The benefit of gravel is that is offers drainage for your building. Gravel is not required but is recommended. However, you will want to have a level area for your storage shed or prefab garage so the Doors open and shut properly. If you put down gravel you will want to have your gravel pad be 2' wider and 2' longer than the size of your building. This gravel border helps prevent dirt from splashing up on the storage building. Once a place is cleared and ready, prefab storage shed kits are easy to use and will save you money and time.
