Colonial Sheds in Virginia

If you’re a homeowner and have owned your home for a while, you’re probably looking for some extra storage space. You may also need a workshop for hands-on projects that require more room than you currently have in your garage.

As you know, things start to accumulate over time: old clothes, lawn and garden tools and equipment, cars with their accessories and maintenance supplies, sports gear, bikes, and so on. And your garage may already be packed to the gills. And no matter how often you have a spring cleaning routine, these things tend to return and multiply.

One solution to consider is having a storage shed building in your backyard, and one type of shed that you should consider building is a Colonial shed. Colonial sheds are constructed out of sturdy, durable wood or vinyl that can withstand the elements and all types of weather.

Although wood-destroying pests such as termites or carpenter ants may be of concern for Colonial sheds with wood exteriors, if you keep the storage barn clear of things such as sticks, branches, and weeds, and if the wood is stained and treated, a Colonial shed can keep your items safe for many years to come.

One of the best advantages that Colonial sheds have is their appearance. They come in a variety of colors and stylish details such as shutters and windows (including transom windows). And you can decorate its exterior just like the exterior of your home (e.g., hang flower boxes on the windows or potted plants outside).

You can even have a shed that matches or complements with the style of your home. If you need extra help with space and organization, you can have a loft installed as well as tool shelves. With a stylish space, you can use a Colonial storage barn as a playroom or as a cozy guesthouse.

With four Colonial shed styles to choose from—A-Frame, Dutch, Cottage, and Hip roof—you’ll be sure to find a storage shed that meets your storage needs.

The Colonial A-Frame Shed

It can hold your lawn and garden tools, can act as a one-car garage, or be your perfect workshop space. You can have one or more windows with shutters and flower boxes, along with double doors, customized to the width you need. If you need even more room and help with organization, a loft can be installed.

The Colonial Dutch Shed

A Dutch storage barn can offer you even more room, especially head room, due to its unique roof style. It’s another great alternative to a one-car garage and can easily be your home away from home as your workshop.

The Colonial Cottage Shed
