WOODEN UTILITY SHEDS

The wooden Utility Shed is a side gable A-frame designed with a large gable to emphasize the roofline and allow water to shed to the shorter ends of the shed. This is a great design if you are trying to match your house’s roofline, or placing the building against another structure or fence. Placing the gable on the long wall of the shed also gives you maximum height in the center of the building which can be helpful in getting taller doors with maximum clearance in your new Utility Shed. This model is available in standard wall height or extended walls to accommodate even your largest items.

The Floor


The floor of the wood sided Utility Shed is the best floor available on the market and its the strong foundation that starts every great shed we sell. Solid 4’’x 6’’ Pressure Treated Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) skids are notched 1 ½ inches for each pressure treated SYP 2’’x 6’’ floor joist to sit cradled in before being toenailed into the skids with nails. This combination of cradle notches and toe-nailing the joist makes a super tough start to a great floor system that will be maintenance free and worry free for years to come. The floor frame is decked with a ¾’’ Tongue and Groove Plywood nailed to the floor joists. Using ¾’’ Tongue and Groove Plywood instead of ⅝’’ or thinner plywood, is what gives our floors the superior strength you can always expect from us. All these features of our floor system give you the peace of mind knowing you can keep using your new shed for years to come. If you are looking for an even greater level of protection for your new shed floor we can apply a floor enamel to the entire floor to make sure the plywood is sealed from any spills that may occur down the road. This coating is applied in a two step process; first, an Extreme Block primer is rolled on followed by the enamel coating, creating a great seal for the lifespan of the building. This spill proof, stain proof finish is an aggressive advantage to have in your new shed when the time comes to wipe up unexpected spills.




The Frame


The wood sided Utility shed is an A-Frame shed with a side gable. This is a great option for those wishing to match the A-frame of their house with the A-frame of their shed. The wooden Utility Shed comes standard with 6’ 8’’ walls or you can upgrade your new sheds’ wall height to 8’ tall. The walls are constructed of Spruce 2’’ x 4’’ wall studs on 24’’ centers and there is a double stud every 4’ to ensure a rock solid seal on all exterior siding seams and a sturdy frame with undeniable strength to give you endless possibilities for options and layouts for all your storage needs.The walls are topped with a double 2’’x 8’’ top plate giving the wooden Utility Shed ample overhang. The roof rafters are Spruce 2’’x 4’’s spaced on 24’’ centers and seated directly in line with the wall stud. Aligning the roof rafters with the wall studs provides the Utility Shed frame support from the top down, supporting any weight placed on the roof all the way to the foundation of the shed. The rafters are pressed together with 2’’x 4’’ galvanized steel mending plates. These features combined with Mennonite craftsmanship provide the building the strength it needs to withstand the test of time and meet or exceed the local roof load and wind zone requirements. The roof pitch comes standard at 4’’ on 12’’ but can be upgraded to 6’’ on 12’’ for an even better looking and more functional shed. Due to hauling restriction, this shed is available in a limited number of sizes however, this is still a great storage solution with many custom options available. The wooden Utility Shed is available in the following sizes: 8’x12’, 10’x12’, 10’x16’ and 12’x16’. Custom sizes are available in between the sizes listed above. If you are looking for this style shed in a broader selection of sizes please check out our Elite Wooden Utility Shed.




The Siding


The siding on the wooden Utility Shed is available in your choice of ⅝’’ pressure treated T1-11 Rough Sawn plywood siding with V-grooves every 4’’ or 7/16” LP Smart Siding with V-grooves every 8’’. The T1-11 siding is stained with a cedar tone sealer and trimmed in pressure treated Southern Yellow Pine presenting a rustic appearance sure to impress any wood lover. The 7/16” LP Smart Siding is a great choice for a modern look and excellent longevity with little maintenance requirements. The Smart Siding is pre-primed and painted your choice of color. You can choose one of many standard colors for expedited delivery or provide us any Sherwin Williams paint code for a perfect match and truly unique color combination. The LP Smart Siding comes with an industry leading warranty straight from the siding manufacturer. With the 5-year 100% labor and material replacement and 50-year prorated limited warranty on substrate, the layer underneath the veneer siding finish, this wooden Utility Shed is here to stay.




The Roof


The wooden Utility Shed roof is available with either 29 GA steel metal roofing or 3 tab shingles. The 5 Rib Steel roofing is available in 18 baked enamel colors and Galvalume. 5 Rib is the pattern of metal roofing that is standard on all residential applications. If you choose shingles for your new shed they are available in 3 stock colors or you can upgrade to 30 year architectural shingles with many colors to choose from. The roof frame is decked in 7/16 OSB sheathing rather than just attaching strips of wood to the rafters, adding strength to the entire shed. We install a screen at the ridge to ensure your shed roof is well vented but still secure from debris and pests. All our metal roof panels are run vertically down the pitch of the roof to ensure that water and debris drain as efficiently as possible. Rather than skipping this crucial step and running the panels horizontally in an effort to save material, trim work and time, we run all panels vertically the way the roof metal is designed to be installed. This detail in workmanship is vital to the longevity of the roof and always a priority at Outdoor Options. We trim the shed’s roofline on all sides and transitions in the roofline to finish your new shed roof with great curb appeal.




The Options


he wooden Utility Shed can be customized in many different sizes, colors ,and layouts. This model will come standard with two gable vents to keep our building cool and fresh with great airflow, making stale, musty storage a thing of the past. The barn style door in either a 46’’ single door or 64’’double doors is standard on the wooden Utility Shed but it can be exchanged for a steel panel door or 9-lite gridded steel door. If you need a wider door we can custom build 80’’ wide doors or install a roll-up garage door under the gable of your new wooden Utility Shed. We offer a range of window sizes to choose from and we can add PVC flower boxes and/or shutters around the windows to give your new Utility Shed the perfect finishing touch. We can install many levels of electrical packages in your new Utility Shed. The basic electrical package includes an overhead light socket with wall mounted switch and a receptacle by the door of the shed. You can add additional receptacles or lights anywhere in the shed. If you want to upgrade your light or lights you can do so with either 4’ or 8’ fluorescent lights or we can even install LED light boards in many levels of brightness to provide you the best possible lighting solution. If you have bigger plans for your shed and need a three way switch by each door, a sub-panel with breakers or a 220 volt plug we can have all that included with your new Utility Shed. With the versatility of the wall height and roof pitch options on this model, it is even possible to add a loft shelf in the top of this shed for extra storage space.





ALUMINUM UTILITY SHEDS

Our affordable line of aluminum storage sheds offers sizes from 8x10 up to 12x32 with six, seven, or eight-foot wall height options.  Typically, sheds have ⅝” tongue and groove plywood for their floor decking, however, at Outdoor Options we always use ¾ tongue and groove plywood.  We want you to have the sturdiest flooring available on the market.  The floor system features 2x6 pressure treated Southern Yellow Pine floor joists spaced 16” on center with double end floor joists and pressure treated 4x6 skids.

The Floor


The floor of the Best Aluminum Utility Shed is the best floor available on the market and it’s the strong foundation that starts every great shed we sell. Solid 4’’x6’’ Ground Contact Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) skids are notched 1 ½ inches for each 20 gauge Galvanized Steel 2’’x 6’’ floor joist to sit cradled in before being screwed into the skids with 5/16’’x 4’’ lag screws. This type of fastener is one of the many extra steps we take to give all of our best quality buildings a 180 MPH wind rating. This combination of cradle notches and screwing the joist to the skids in your new shed makes a super tough start to a great floor system that you can count on to be maintenance free and worry free for years to come. The floor frame is decked with ¾’’ Tongue and Groove Plywood and screwed to the floor joists. Using ¾’’ Tongue and Groove Plywood instead of ⅝’’ or thinner plywood, is what gives our floors the superior strength you can always expect from Outdoor Options. Furthermore, using screws, instead of nails to fasten the plywood to the floor joists ensures that you don’t have to worry about nails that back out over the lifespan of your new shed. All these features of our floor system gives this shed a 125 pound per square foot load rating and the peace of mind knowing you can keep using your new shed for years to come. If you are looking for an even greater level of protection for your new shed floor we can apply a floor enamel to the entire floor to make sure the plywood is sealed from any spills that may occur down the road. This coating is applied in a two step process; first, an Extreme Block primer is rolled on followed by the enamel coating, creating a great seal for the lifespan of the building. The spill proof, stain proof finish is an aggressive advantage to have in your new shed when the time comes to wipe up unexpected spills.




The Frame


The Best Aluminum Utility Shed is an A-Frame shed with a side gable. This model comes standard with 6’ 8’’ walls or you can upgrade your new shed walls to 8’ tall. The walls are constructed of 2’’x 4’’ roll formed (20 gauge G-90 galvanized) steel wall studs on 24’’ centers and there is a belt stud running horizontally halfway up the walls around the perimeter to ensure a rock solid seal on all exterior siding seams and a sturdy frame with undeniable strength to give you endless possibilities for options and layouts for all your storage needs. The roof frame is 2’’x 4’’ roll formed (20 gauge G-90 galvanized) steel rafters on 24’’ centers and seated directly in line with a wall stud. Aligning the roof rafters with the wall studs provides the Best Aluminum Utility Shed frame support from the top down, supporting any weight placed on the roof or hung from the rafters all the way to the foundation of the shed. Furthermore, the roof frame is laid out in a grid pattern with framework every 24’’ across the pitch in addition to the rafters. These features combined with excellent craftsmanship provide the building the strength it needs to withstand the test of time and meet or exceed the local roof load and wind zone requirements(180 M.P.H. rating) The roof pitch comes standard at 1 ½’’ on 12’’ but can be upgraded to 6’’ on 12’’ for an even better looking and more functional shed.




The Siding


The siding on the Best Aluminum Utility Shed is available in your choice of lap siding or twin rib pattern. Take a look at the pictures to see the difference.The Aluminum siding comes in 7 standard colors and 11 upgrade colors. You can also choose a trim color in any of the 18 colors to accent your new shed. The lap siding pattern is the same pattern as dutch lap vinyl siding. This pattern of aluminum is a great way to match many different types of siding on your home. No matter what type of lap siding you are matching, this Aluminum Lap will allow you the aesthetic appeal of a matching shed without the extra expense of tradition construction. The twin rib pattern is a more durable design that is less prone to denting than other aluminum patterns. This is a great option for areas where lawn mowers, bikes or balls might hit the side of the building. Aluminum siding is very low maintenance siding and has an outstanding ability to dissipate heat, shielding your contents from the sun. The only maintenance that aluminum siding may need is an occasional wash with normal dish soap to remove any mildew that may have accumulated on the surface over time. All these benefits make aluminum siding the “go to” for an economic solution to any storage needs.




The Roof


The Best Aluminum Utility Shed roof comes standard in 29GA galvalume steel metal roofing. The 5 Rib Metal roofing is available in 18 baked enamel colors. 5 Rib is the pattern of metal roofing that is standard in all residential applications.

This system features a continuous piece of steel roof metal from one side of the building to the other with a crimped ridge. It also protects against water, debris, and pests from entering underneath a traditional metal ridge cap. All our metal roof panels are run vertically down the pitch of the roof to ensure that water and debris drain as efficiently as possible. Rather than skipping this crucial step and running the panels horizontally in an effort to save material, trim work and time, we run all panels vertically the way the roof metal is designed to be installed. This detail in workmanship is vital to the longevity of the roof and always a priority at Outdoor Options. We trim the sheds’ roofline on all eaves and transitions in the roof to finish your new shed roof with great curb appeal.

We even have 6’ or 8’ double doors we can add or exchange for the standard door. The Best Aluminum Utility Shed can feature a 6’, 8’ or 9’ wide roll-up garage door. While the double doors will accommodate almost any riding mower or ATV, a roll-up garage door can bring a whole new level of ease and satisfaction to pulling in and out of the building without worrying about a swinging door getting in the way. The roll-up garage door is spring assisted for easy opening and closing. When the door is in the open position, it is neatly coiled overhead and out of the way. Ramps made of all aluminum with extruded aluminum decking come in 4’, 5’, 6’, and 8’ widths and are available to be added to any shed package.
