Victorian

The Victorian shed is our homage to Victorian architecture, complete with the same finishing touches that are a standard feature of buildings of the period. From the unique roofline to the dormers and even an optional cupola on top, this shed is a customer favorite for its beauty and curb appeal.

About the Victorian Shed

Our version of the Victorian shed is similar to our Garden Shed, with its steep roof pitch and large 8” overhangs. Where it differs is the addition of a reverse gable dormer, typically over a double carriage door. You can place it elsewhere, such as over a set of windows or a porch to make it unique.

This dormer adds a degree of vertical headroom, which is why most choose to put it over the doors so that as you enter the structure it feels as if the shed is bigger than it actually is. Over a porch, the reverse dormer makes it feel less claustrophobic, which some may also find appealing.

The Victorian shed’s regal and stately appearance make it a great option for a home office, workshop, or playhouse for the kids – but it works just as well as a storage shed too, just with a whole lot more flair.

While optional, we highly recommend the addition of a cupola on top of your structure to complete the Victorian “look.” All of our sheds also include a variety of options and upgrades including siding, shingle, window, and shutters. Have fun with it and truly make your new Victorian shed stand out from the rest!

A five-year guarantee against manufacturer defects is also provided.

Make It Yours

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.’

  • For the roof, consider a dormer or cupola to give your outdoor building a unique look.
  • Opt for a cedar shake, ribbed metal or standing-seam metal roof to further customize its appearance.
  • We offer a plethora of siding options including beaded vinyl, HardiePlank, board-and-batten, and cedar shake.
  • Window options include insulated, wood sash, arched wood sash and transom windows.
  • Even the window shutters are customizable: choose from wood slat, vinyl raised panel or vinyl louvered options.
