Cottage Shed

wooden prefab shed pittsburgh pa

The Cottage Shed is a favorite among our metal and wood sheds. It’s similar to our Garden Shed design, but it has a salt-box or “offset style” roof, giving it a wider eve in the front than on the back. This makes for a very attractive building, whether you’re looking for a small shed or something bigger. Speaking of bigger, this shed is available in standard sizes from 8×12 up to 12×32!

Cottage Shed Standard Features:

  • Pressure-treated skids and joists to resist moisture and rot from the ground
  • Your choice of siding – pressure treated 5/8″ wood siding, LP SmartSide, or metal with a 40-year warranty on all cottage sheds
  • Your choice of roofing – shingles or metal
  • Heavy-duty flooring to support your belongings – 5/8″ comes standard on all cottage sheds, 3/4″ is available
  • Heavy-duty doors – a 4′ door on 8′ wide cottage sheds; a 6′ double door on cottage sheds 10′ or 12′ wide
  • A locking door latch for extra security
  • Sidewalls are 6’ 3”

Interior Options

The Cottage shed is perfect for your pool house, she-shed, man-cave, workshop, or even office space. This Shed is an easily customizable portable building. You can add ¾ heavy-duty flooring to support your belongings, heavy-duty doors, or a locking door latch for extra security.

Exterior Options

The Cottage Shed comes standard with two windows. As in all of our metal or wood sheds, the exact placement of the windows and doors is up to you. You can even add additional windows or doors if you need more than the standard amount! Also, you can choose customized features like roof color, siding, and painting to match your requirements. (For sheds with similar designs, check out our Utility Shed and Garden Shed designs.)
