One of the biggest decisions you will need to make when getting one of the Amish sheds is if you want to go with either the wood sheds or vinyl sheds.  Alan's Factory Outlet wood sheds and vinyl sheds are both built to the same specs as far as the framing construction is concerned which is 16" on center 2"x4" sidewalls and roof rafters.  Both have a plywood interior, pressure treated 4"x4" foundation skids that help make these storage buildings portable.  The wood sheds are currently available in two different lines, standard heavy duty and deluxe heavy duty.  The main difference is the standard wood sheds have a 25 year 3 tab shingle vs the deluxe wood storage sheds that have a 30 year architectural shingles with felt paper.  Again all of the storage buildings have a pressure treated base but the deluxe also have pressure treated 2x4 floor joists where the standard have regular 2x4 floor joists so this means with the deluxe the first 7" of the floor system is pressure treated vs 4" of floor is p.t. on the standard heavy duty wood sheds.  So those are the 3 difference between the wood standard sheds and wood deluxe storage buildings.  The vinyl sheds are all made to the deluxe storage shed specs.

The wood sheds are made with year duratemp T1-11 siding which will require painting every 10 years or so vs the vinyl siding which does not have any wood that needs painting.  The main difference is the siding which on the wood sheds runs vertical up and down and on the vinyl sheds runs horizontal side to side. 

The wood sheds have wood double doors and the vinyl sheds are built with fiberglass doors.  Both of the doors now come with door stoppers to help protect the door along with a lock and 2 keys.

Alan's Factory Outlet Amish built wood sheds and vinyl sheds are on display at 643 West Main St. Luray, Virginia 22835.  The wood storage buildings and vinyl storage buildings are custom built with the door and windows placed in the location you want.  They are delivered for free in 21 local counties in VA.  The sheds are available for delivery in all of Virginia and West Virginia.

Once you figure out the siding you want you will than need to figure out the style and size shed you want.  Here are the wood shed prices and vinyl shed prices showing the styles, sizes and prices.

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.
