Jefferson 16-Ft Wide Best Barn Shed
The Jefferson, a versatile two-story clearspan structure, is ideal as a single-car garage, a spacious storage building, or a creative workshop. Its design accommodates a 9ft. or 8ft. wide garage door, not included, allowing you to select a style and color that suits your taste. Alternatively, for workshops or storage buildings, different door types can be installed. Windows and shutters are also not included, offering you the freedom to choose types and styles that meet your needs, with the option to paint the shutters as desired. An additional 9-Lite 32x80in. door, which is not included, can be installed on any of the three walls for extra access. The 'L' shaped stairs are adaptable, fitting into either back wall corner opposite the garage door. You can also install extra windows during construction, with their locations and additional framing materials determined by you. The robust construction features 2x4 walls spaced 16in. o.c., with pressure-treated bottom plates and 2×6 trusses spaced 24in. o.c. The foundation is customizable, accommodating various types like cement slabs, basements, wood floors, or post and beam, with materials for the floor and foundation purchased separately. It's essential to check local building codes to ensure your Jefferson meets regional requirements, making it a perfect blend of functionality and personal style.
