Your shed sounds like our last wooden shed that succumbed to rotting away albeit we re-varnished it every year to try and preserve but to na avail in the end. We decided to switch to a quality plastic shed design.
Tip: Many vinyl-sided wood shed builders allow you to choose custom siding and roofing colors to match your house! .
Barns usually have a similar cost per square foot as sheds, but because they are much larger - around 1,000 sq.ft. on average - they have higher costs, starting at about $50,000 for a very basic structure.
Flooring: The cheapest of these kits don’t include flooring; they require a separate floor to be purchased and installed.
A few design tweaks make this Classic Outdoor Wooden Shed look a bit more…Classy. Note the wider overhangs, the larger windows, a steeper roof pitch which all add to the aesthetics. Tip: Add foil-backed sheathing on the roof and keep your shed much cooler during the summer!
One of the first things you need to do when shopping for an outdoor building is to think about how your building will be used. Once you’ve made that clear in your mind then we can direct you to the wooden garden shed that is best suited for your intended use. The following chart highlights the most common use of our different building types.

Worried about crawling in to this deep shed to get your storage out – No problem, it’s been cleverly designed with a gliding roof. The roof is in two sections, just slide the front half of the roof across the back half and walk in.

Another common problem is on wild windy days, blowing the roof open causing the hinges to break. To alleviate this problem lock the doors and roof with a padlock.
The shed is very nice and appears solidly built. Communication throughout the process was very good. The delivery into a difficult spot was particularly impressive and they were able to place the shed exactly where we wanted it. Nancy Boyer 2 years ago
2"x4" wood for framing 8' walls in a 10'x12' shed, including 5/8" plywood siding, 3-1/2" R-13 insulation, and 1/2" gypsum drywall
Mitch made this process very easy. He does what he says and gives you lots of information and is a good communicator. The work is good quality and the delivery was seamless. I highly recommend working with Mitch and Shed City USA ! Bryan Jackson 5 months ago
Before we go further, let me make another point. Most storage shed builders in PA primarily sell sheds and garages to resellers in other states. There are only a select few who specialize in selling portable storage sheds and detached garages direct to customers all around. These small businesses who specialize in direct sales might be the ones to consider since they put most of their energies into selling sheds direct and work hard to offer quality customer support. They also have many options in regards to the type of storage shed or garage one purchases.

We built three shelves in our shed using 2x4s and 1/2″ plywood at a cost of about $100. Our shelves will last for the life of the shed.The materials used for shelving in the low quality shed are the same as those used for the walls (2x3s, 1/2″ OSB). You can see from the pictures below that these shelves are already warping. Any weight placed on the large shelf will cause it to buckle over time.
