Garden Quaker

The Garden Quaker shed combines two shed styles, the Garden Shed and the Quaker, resulting in a slightly more visually exciting design than your standard Garden shed.

About the Garden Quaker Shed

All of the basic architectural features of the Garden Shed and Quaker remain, such as a steeper pitched roof and 8” side and rear overhangs with hurricane clips. With the Garden Quaker shed, we increase the wall heights to add interior vertical space, and increase the front overhang to 18” to provide extra shelter over the front doors.

While you might think the additional overhang may pose trouble for your shed in windier climates, the incorporation of hurricane clips protects your roof from damage. They also provide stability in the event of an earthquake, lessening the risk of collapse.

The Garden Quaker shed is a great option for customers looking for a shed to complement existing historical architecture, but with just enough extra flair to make a statement. If you’d like a slightly more ornate design, opt for additional design elements such as shutters or a cupola.

Our sheds feature a five-year guarantee against any manufacturer defects, but your Garden Quaker shed with proper maintenance will last you far longer than that.

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.
