Endless Possibilities with Your New Amish Shed

Unless you have plenty of experience with sheds, you won’t know that Amish sheds are different, unique type of buildings that offer unique benefits and have unique characteristics. In the lack of a better world, we can say that they are special. Another side of the story is that they also offer all benefits and advantages conventional models have, but they have been constructed for a longer period of time, so they are simply perfected.

The main differences

All Amish sheds feature a different design, compared to conventional models. They are compact in size, but they offer plenty of space inside. Most models have a deck at the front, which looks fantastic. Although they can be used anywhere you need them, we will say that the main place where they will look natural is countryside, with old-fashioned homes. There is one more advantage regarding this matter which will be mentioned later.

Cladding these sheds offer is different as well. It is tough, looks classic and it is completely different than conventional sheds feature. In general, they have stronger exterior support elements, which provide extra strength.

Treated or untreated wood

Sheds of this type are almost always made from hemlock wood, which is an advantage as well. The wood is strong, durable and highly resistant. The advantage we mentioned above is related to the untreated wood. You can choose between it and treated wood, and both of them have its own specifications.

Untreated wood is still durable and resistant, but it will turn black after some time, providing the ‘’old’’ looks, matching the shed with barns and other old buildings in the surroundings. Wood, design and this feature make Amish sheds the only kind with this feature. Obviously, it is possible to choose treated wood shed. The color and the patterns of the wood will be permanently protected and preserved. For areas with rough weather, this actually may be a better solution. At any given moment, you can paint it, but be prepared to spend a lot of time on surface sanding.

Kits and crane-deliveries are available as well

Just because these sheds look old, it doesn’t mean they must be constructed in the same way.  You can still choose between custom made, kits and cranes. We all know what custom made sheds look like, so we will move to the next type.

Kits of this type are easy to assembly and they come with detailed instructions. If space is limited and none of other methods will be useful, kits are the only and the best choice. Amish sheds don’t require ground preparation, which made them ideal for applications of this type.

Cranes can be used as well. The pre-constructed shed will be lowered and positioned exactly where you want it. The job will be done in a matter of seconds. Due to increased availability of high cranes, placing the sheds in impossible locations is possible.

Now you are completely ready to choose and get yourself a new Amish shed. 

Differences Between a Shed and a Garden House

Most of you believe that a shed is the only type of building that can actually be used in your garden and that it is the only one that matters. Some homeowners even choose not to invest into a shed because they have just one choice available. The real situation is completely different. There are a lot of different types of sheds, available to you right now. One of them, also commonly known as an advanced shed is a garden house. Here we will discuss all the differences between the conventional shed and advanced house for garden.

The design and looks

First and foremost, a house for garden or advanced garden building of you prefer looks completely different than an ordinary shed. It is larger as well. The design is specifically pointed towards the more elegant and more expensive homes in the neighborhood. We can even say that these sheds are high-end ones. Buying or designing this type will provide you a lot of additional possibilities and features. There are no rules here you should follow.


While conventional sheds don’t usually have windows, or have just a few, smaller ones, garden houses have many of them. Currently, models with the entire wall made from glass are extremely popular. The type of glass is special as well. You can see from the shed, but nobody can see you from the outside. Obviously, models with smaller windows are common and popular as well.

Small garden all around it

In order to maximize the effect and make this kind of shed look perfect, you will have to add a small garden or a garden bed around it. All homeowners who managed to combine these two elements are getting compliments for their beautiful garden all the time. Once again, there are no rules here, so it is up to you to choose what you really want.

Roof windows

This is one of the latest and the most sophisticated features an elite shed for your garden can have. Roof windows not only look great, they also make the air inside cleaner, allow more light and they also offer a full list of additional possibilities and combinations to do with the plants. Let’s not forget the luxury and the style they add. This is also the biggest difference between two types because ordinary sheds don’t have roof windows.


If you really want to make a superb garden house, add a deck. It will make the entire garden look impressive and it will transform you elite shed into a completely new reality. Only the most advanced and the most expensive sheds of this kind come with a deck.


Garden houses are the advanced and elite type of sheds, keep that in mind. They are the best alternative for high-end gardens where everything is perfect and everything must be balanced. When it comes to design and functionality, garden houses are the absolute leaders in the field and they will always stay here.
