What is a 4' Mini Barn Style Shed and How Tall is it?

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Sat, Nov 24, 2012

Many people are looking for a shed that is under 8' 6" tall due to permit or subdivision restrictions. 

We only have one style of sheds that is under the 8' 6" height level and that is the 4' mini barn.  It is called 4' mini barn because it has 4' sidewalls, but it is 8' at the peak and with the pitch of the roof will provide plenty of head room but just doesn't give you any loft space.

The next taller style shed is an a-frame shed which is at approximately 9' 10" tall.  We also have a dutch barn style shed which is 2' 6" taller than the 4' mini barn.  The dutch barn has 6' 6" sidewalls from the ground to the roof line and is 10' 6" tall at the peak.

So the 4' mini barn is almost 2' shorter than the a-frame shed.

The mini barn sheds come with double doors and one window.  On the 8' wide mini barn they come with 4' wide double doors and the 10' wide sheds have 5' double doors and the 12' and 14' wide come standard with 6' wide double doors.

The mini barn sheds are built in wood siding storage sheds and vinyl siding storage sheds.

Here are the sizes and pricing for the wood 4' mini barns and the vinyl 4' mini barns.

You get to pick what color you want on the mini barn.  The wood shed paint colors and vinyl siding shed colors are shown to get an idea on which color will match your home best.

Alan's Factory Outlet wood and vinyl 4' mini barn sheds are delivered for free in 21 local counties in Northern Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley.  Delivery is available in all of Virginia and West Virginia.

The Amish built mini barn is delivered fully assembled.  If you don't have enough room for a truck and trailer to back into the location you have for the shed we have a do it yourself wood shed kit.  The shed kits are only available in the T1-11 wood siding and come painted with your choice of main color and trim color.  You'll even get to pick the shingle color so the roof matches your home.

The wooden shed kits are all pre cut with all of the hardware included for an easy assembly process.  They are delivered on a wood pallet and shrink wrapped awaiting you or your contractors assembly.

Going back to the mini-barn shed please keep in mind due to the 4' sidewalls the double doors would need to be on the end and the window would need to be placed on the opposite end of the door because placing a window on the side of this style shed would mean it would be so low when mowing or weed eating you would have a high probability of a rock breaking the window not to mention it would be very awkward to open and shut the window if it was on the side.

You could take away the window if you don't want it and sometimes we've had a customer who only wanted a 3' single door instead of the double door which is available.  One size we didn't mention are the 6' wide mini barns which are only available in a 3' single door.

Take a look inside one of the 4' mini barns.

All of the heavy duty mini-barns are constructed with 2"x4" sidewalls and roof rafters 16" on center.  You can see have steep the pitch of the roof is to allow for enough head room to stand up in it.

I hope this has given you some basic information about the 4' mini barn style building.

The above picture shows you the 5 pressure treated runners standard on all of the sheds. 

The benefit of the 5 pressure treated 4x4 runners is a stronger floor with less bounce especially with the middle runner.  On top of the runner is 2x4 upright floor joist which is 16" on center.  On the deluxe mini barn sheds this joist is pressure treated.  The 4"x4" runner and 2x4 floor joists give you 7" of airflow under the mini barn sheds.  Finally there is a 5/8" plywood floor on top of the 2x4's.

A metal diamond plate is attached to the entry point on all of the wood mini barn sheds.

This metal cover helps protect the plywood floor from chipping away over time.
