High-Quality Prefab Shed Kits Delivered in Virginia
At Alan’s Factory Outlet, you can count on our complete shed kits to be durable, customized to your specifications, and easy to install. A high-quality shed can enhance any yard it’s put in and provide plenty of storage space for all of your needs.
Why Choose Wood Shed Kits Instead of a Prefab Shed?
We sell both portable shed kits and completed sheds to be delivered to your home, but if you do not have enough room in or around your property for us to deliver a fully assembled Amish-built shed on a truck and trailer, you will need to opt for a kit. The truck and trailer is 52 feet long, and we will need at least a 14-foot-wide path and 13 feet of clearance to deliver a prefab shed. If you don’t have that much clearance or you have a fence in the way, our shed kits allow you to still get a durable, attractive Amish-built shed into your backyard.
Who Builds the Wooden Shed Kit?
Our easy-to-put-together sheds are ideal for do-it-yourselfers, as you’ll need to assemble the structure yourself or have a contractor do it. These wood sheds come in sections to make building them as easy and efficient as possible for you or your contractor. Since all of the parts in our wooden shed kits are already pre-cut, the assembly process is quite simple and requires a minimal amount of work.
Does Anything Come Partially Built?
Yes. When you buy a shed kit, the walls come completely constructed with the windows and doors already hung in them, making assembly quick and easy for you.
The plywood floor comes built in one section in almost all of our wood shed kits. The only exception is for sheds that are longer than 10 feet. In this case, the floor comes in two built sections that can easily be put together.
Are Instructions Included With the Wood Shed Kits?
Yes: Every garden shed kit comes with instructions that fully explain how to assemble all of the parts in your storage shed kit. Please be sure to review the full instruction manual before starting work on garden shed kits, including any safety reminders and warnings.
How Long Does it Take to Build a Wood Shed Kit?
Using three people, it takes approximately three to five hours to complete the assembly of an easy shed kit from Alan’s Factory Outlet.
Do I Have to Paint the Wood Shed Kit Myself?
No: The siding on our shed kits comes painted with two coats of your choice of paint. We offer 16 different colors of paint for you to choose from, so you can customize wooden shed kits to match or complement existing structures on your property.
What Comes in a Shed Kit?
When you order one of our easy kit sheds, we include all of the part you’ll need to assemble a fully functional shed, including the walls, floor, and roofing. You can expect your storage shed kit to include:
- Painted DuraTemp T1-11 wood siding
- 25-year shingles
- ½" plywood for the roof
- 2x4 studs for the roof and side walls 16 inches on center
- 2x4 floor joists 16 inches on center
- 5/8" plywood floor
- Pressure-treated foundation skids
- Wooden double doors
- Steel diamond plate at door thresholds
- Two gable vents
- Two slider windows with shutters (mini barn gets one window)
- Hardware, including nails
We use durable materials for each part in our storage shed kits to ensure that the resulting structure will protect your items well for years to come.
How Does the Shed Kit Get Delivered to My Property?
Our portable shed kits are delivered by a Dodge 350 with a 24-foot trailer. All together, the truck and trailer are 52 feet long, which is about the length of a tractor trailer. If you have ordered a 10-foot-wide shed kit, we will need at least 14 feet of clearance to get the building into your driveway as long as it is a straight shot into your driveway. The sharper the turn into your driveway, the more room is needed for our truck to pass through. If there is not enough room for the truck and trailer to back into your driveway, modular shed kits can be delivered curbside.
What Styles Are Available for Shed Kits?
We have a variety of high-quality shed kits in a range of styles to suit our customers’ needs and preferences, including:
- Mini barns
- Dutch barns
- A-frame sheds
- High-wall A-frame sheds
- Quaker sheds
How Much Does a Shed Kit Cost?
When you purchase our easy-to-put-together storage sheds online, prices will vary depending on the size and style of shed you choose. A 6x6 mini barn costs $1,381, for instance, while a 10x20 Quaker-style shed is $4,366.
What Sizes Are Garden Shed Kits Available In?
Our garden shed kits come in 13 different sizes, ranging from 6x6 up to 10x20.
How Do You Assemble a Shed Kit?
Here are some pictures to show you how our shed kits come together. The easy-build shed kit depicted below is a deluxe wood Dutch barn.
1. Unstack the pieces of your flattened shed kit.
2. Assemble the floor to form the base of the structure.
3. Erect the back wall and join it to the floor. The stain that you see on the wood here was added by the customer to help protect the floor.
4. Once the back wall is standing, put the side walls up and fix them in place. You can already see how the structure is coming together in just a few simple steps.
5. Now, the front of the shed goes up to form the final wall.
6. Nail the roof joists in your wood shed kit to the 2x4 top plates. This helps to add extra support and strength to the roof.
7. Add the lengths of plywood to the skeleton structure of the roof.
This photo shows the last section of plywood being placed on the roof.
8. Add the felt paper to the roof.
9. Install the drip edge that came with your do-it-yourself shed kit.
10. Add the shingles to the roof.
Here’s what the completed DIY shed looks like.
