High Barn

The High Barn features a timeless design, a shed-sized structure reminiscent of its much larger brethren found on farms across rural America. And the Amish are well known for their expertise when it comes to building a barn!

About the High Barn

Like a full-size barn, the High Barn is all about maximizing every last bit of useable space inside. One way this is done is through a “gambrel roof.” The gambrel features three ridges, one on the peak, and one on either side to create a second, steeper pitch along the outer edges. The resulting effect gives the interior an overall increase in vertical space over traditional shed styles like the A-Frame.

If you like the practicality of the High Barn but would prefer a touch of style, our Dutch Colonial style adds a decidedly Dutch flair to the roofline of your shed.

One way you can take advantage of this additional vertical space is by adding a loft to your High Barn. This gives you additional floor space while still having enough headroom below to comfortably work in your shed.

The High Barn offers a recognizable, classic style that looks great on any property. Choose from a variety of siding, shingle, window, and shutter options to customize the appearance of your High Barn shed to complement your unique property.

Our five year-guarantee against manufacturer defects protects your investment, and with proper maintenance your High Barn will serve you for decades to come.

  • 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.
