The A-Frame shed is our standard and most economical design, featuring a lower 5/12 pitch roof and small overhangs. A door is traditionally placed in the center of one of the longer walls, with windows on either side. It’s a classic and timeless shed style, and a popular model.
A-Frame sheds are a great style for those that are looking for a smaller and less conspicuous storage structure, as it has a smaller overall footprint. It’s a great option for basic storage, but can be used for a variety of other purposes, including a small poolhouse, studio, or she-shed.
The lower sloped roof limits vertical space in the structure, making the A-Frame’s interior easier to cool in the summer and heat in the winter. This roof style also is the reason why an A-Frame is less expensive since the roof requires less material and labor to build.
Don’t confuse the simplicity of this structure for a reduction in quality. Lapp Structures’ Amish built A-Frame sheds are different from the ones you see at your local home improvement store. Your A-Frame shed is built to last and comes with a quality five-year guarantee against any manufacturing defects, but will serve you for decades to come with proper maintenance.
While you can keep you A-Frame design simple, there’s nothing preventing you from customizing your shed to your tastes. Endless possibilities exist for you to individualize the shed, including a variety of siding, shingle, window, door, and shutter options.
While the above specifications are standard across all of our structures, there are many opportunities to customize your Amish-built shed to ‘make it yours.’
