Things to consider before ordering a shed.
1 - To understand our measurements, they are by Gable Wall x Side Wall
Example: an 8 x 12 medium board and batten.
Eave Heights: Low - 6 feet 5 inches ( 65 inches ), the door must be on gable wall.
Medium - 6 feet ( 72 inches ), the door must be on gable wall.
High - 7 feet ( 84 inches ), the door can go on any wall.
Our finished dimensions on our sheds are 6 inches bigger than the size of shed that you ordered. Our usable floor size is 7 inches smaller than the size you order.
Example: an 8 x 12 finished dimension is 8' 6" x 12' 6" and floor dimension is 7' 5" x 11' 5".
The roof length and width are approximately 12 inches bigger than the shed.
Example: an 8 x 12 sheds roof is 9' x 13'.
These measurements should be considered when your planning a location for your shed.
2 - A shed less than 108 square feet must be 2 feet away from the property line, at the minimum, due to zoning by-law.
