Rafters, Studs, and Flooring

We believe in framing your shed exactly like new home construction. We understand that using the proper building materials is essential to the longevity of the building. 

An outdoor shed typically has to endure more hazards than your home and survive much harsher weather conditions due to the exposed nature of its application.

We will not settle for anything less than a shed that will last as long as your house and we stand behind that with our 10 year warranty!
