This particular project required a backyard building that could be used for storage as well as a workshop. The customer also wanted high ceilings so a loft could be incorporated for additional storage. And maybe someday this space could even become a guest house.
When building 10 ft high walls I always start with 2 x 6 lumber rather that 2 x 4’s, and we build on 16″ centers for superior strength.
After framing we covered the structure with Zip Systems OSB sheathing and to get ready for siding. Click Here to read more about why I choose Zip Systems.
And after adding the windows and doors the loft was built and added over 100 sq/ft of additional storage space and still maintained 7 ft of clearance below.
You might notice the roof design changed before construction began. The owner wanted a traditional gable roof that matched other buildings on the property, rather than the shed roof originally planned.
The exterior and roof are covered in commercial grade galvalume steel panels with a 20 year limited warranty and the windows and door are trimmed in rough cedar. The result is a very low maintenance building that is built to last for a very long time.
Over 250 sq/ft of interior floor space and 100+ sq/ft storage loft. This building starts at only $8499. Let’s get started on your project!
