This 12 x 16 Best Barn shed kit is the perfect single-car garage kit with an additional loft! A beautiful traditional barn-style appeal with plenty of storage space. It provides high headroom measuring 12'9". The loft has a 4' opening provided to allow access on either end of the Tahoe's second floor. The loft also has working loft doors to provide additional access. This is the perfect DIY kit. Everything is precut except the siding and roof sheathing to save you money and time. The siding has vertical grooves that give an attractive plank look. They are primed so you can paint the color of your choice (latex acrylic paint is recommended). The siding is treated with composibor and prevents fungal decay and insect damage. The siding is manufactured with wood strands that are pressed into a resin-saturated substrate making it superior to plywood.

The Best Barn wood shed kit components fit easily into place with no special tools or skills required. All required hardware is included. Roof edge and shingles are provided by the owner as most customer’s want to purchase that locally to match their home.
Optional Floor: If you have an already existing level foundation, cement slab, blacktop or gravel base, the floor kit is still recommended as you do not want your siding and walls touching the ground where they can soak up water. If you don’t purchase the floor, you’ll need some sort of wooden base or material to raise the shed off the direct ground. The floor includes treated 4x4 runners, 2 x 4's for the floor joists, and ¾” plywood. Raising the foundation above the ground the 4 x 4's allow air to flow an eliminate moisture. All nails are included. The floor does require cutting and assembly and floor sheathing is not treated.
Optional Windows: Single-hung aluminum 18x27 windows provide light and ventilation. The lockable frames are durable and easy to operate. Screens limit insects, birds, leaves, etc. Window includes raised panel vinyl shutters ready to paint.
An optional walk-in entry door gives additional access.
Pre-hung 9-lite walk-in door includes aluminum threshold and lockset.
Windowless pre-hung 6-panel steel walk-in door also includes threshold and lockset.
