Wood Garden Shed Kits at Alan's Factory Outlet

The wood garden shed kits are custom built in several different styles and sizes.  They are painted with your choice of a main color, trim color, shutter color and shingle color.  The garden shed kit prices and garden shed kit colors are shown on the Alan's Factory Outlet website to help you decide what size, style and color is best for you.

The great thing about the shed kits is that they are all precut so this saves you time by not having to take the time to cut each individual section to the precise size.  The four walls are also already constructed for a quicker assembly time once the storage building kit arrives to your location.  The 4"x4" floors with the 2"x4" floor joists are attached when you get it.  The roof trusses are pre made so they just need to be nailed to the top plate of the walls.  A 1/2" of plywood is provided for the roof and a bundle of shingles are waiting for you or your contractor to attach them. 

The garden sheds are also built fully assembled if you have enough room for a truck and trailer to deliver it into your backyard.  If there is not enough space than the shed kit to the rescue as a way to get the same Amish built construction in a kit form.

Some different ways you can use a garden storage building 

  • Of course as the name says to store garden supplies
  • A place to store a mower, weed eater and other lawn equipment
  • Tired of having those chemicals under the sink, you can store them away from the home in a shed
  • Potting shed
  • Hook up some electric with lights and an air conditioner for the summer months or a heater during the winter months and turn the garden structure into a retreat area for you to relax, read or pray.
  • Need a hobby room but don't have enough space in your home for one a shed can be turned into a hobby room such as a wood working shop, game room or place to work on those mechanical projects.

There are many other ways to use a garden structure but these are jut a few that come to mind.

Alan's Factory Outlet wood garden shed kits are delivered for free in 21 local counties in Virginia and West Virginia with delivery available statewide in VA and WV.

Options to consider adding to your shed kit or build yourself after you install it.  The floor is about 7" off of the ground so if you have a riding mower you will want to have a ramp to help drive into it.  Shelfing or a loft depending on the style of building you have can be helpful to maximize your space.  If you plan on storing some really heavy items in this shed you will want to reinforce the floor.  The 2 ways to do this is to make the floor joists closer together 12" on center instead of the standard 16" O.C. distance this would need to be done at the time you order your shed kit.  Another option would be to make the floor thicker with 3/4" plywood floor vs the 5/8" plywood floor that it comes with.  You could also put down additional plywood down yourself at a latter date if your needs change down the road.  If your floor will be getting wet often you will want to do one of 2 things.  You could put down a water sealer on the plywood floor or you could upgrade to a pressure treated floor.  An extra single or double door and additional windows are a few other options.

Since the shed kits are custom built once you buy, you get to pick the location of the doors and windows.

The wood storage shed kits can be built in approximately 3 to 5 hours by three people.  The first step when installing the storage shed kit is to start with the foundation and put the floor where you want the shed to be placed.

This shows the floor attached to the foundation of 2"x4" floor joists which has 5 pressure treated 4"x4" runners which helps provide airflow under the building while putting the plywood floor 7" off the ground.  This shed kit foundation is placed on a gravel base which is what we recommend for drainage.  The customer also applied stain on the floor to help create a barrier to prevent moisture from being absorbed into the floor.  The stain is not available on the storage shed kits but you could put it on the floor just like this customer did.

Shed Kits

Shed kits are built with the walls fully assembled and the doors and windows already placed in your desired location.  The wood shed kits are painted in one of the 15 different color choices.  You also get to pick the trim color, shutter color and shingle colors.

Alan's Factory Outlet storage shed kits are delivered are truck and trailer will back into as close to the intended location and then the shed kit slides off of the trailer.  

The four walls on the shed kit are removable.  So you will want to unscrew the four walls and carry them back beside the location where your shed will placed.  And the floor which is already assembled will be carried back to where you want your shed.  The roof trusses are all built and then you will nail the trusses to the walls then nail the roof sheeting to the trusses.  We also provide felt paper and shingles and then you have your shed kit ready to be used.

On average it will take two or three people between 3 to 5 hours to assemble the wood sheds.

Shed Kits Now Available!

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Fri, Apr 1, 2011

Shed Kits Wood Shed Kits Wooden Shed KitsAlan's Factory Outlet now offers Wood Shed Kits for those of you who just don't have enough space to get a fully built building in your yard.

Shed Kits are available only in Virginia.

Wooden Shed Kits are still hauled using a truck and shed trailer.  The driver can place the building in a larger area and then you can begin to carry materials to your desired location.

When the Shed Kit is delivered you can expect it to look almost like a fully built shed without a roof.  The reason we do this is to prevent the paint from rubbing off of the walls which is typical of stacked/bundled Shed Kits. 

Once the Wood Shed Kit has been set down on the ground you will want to remove all material from inside the building.  Then unscrew each of the four walls to relocate to the Shed location.  Place the built floor on final site and make sure it is level both ways before reattaching the walls.  You will then attach the built rafters.  Then install the plywood for the roof, felt paper, drip edge and shingles.   

Sizes offered are 6x6 up to 10x20.  Shed Kits come in five different styles: 

  • Mini Barns
  • Dutch Barns
  • A-Frame Sheds
  • Highwall A-Frame Sheds
  • Quaker Sheds
