What is a Cape Cod style shed?Modeled after the Cape Cod style house, Cape Cod sheds share many of the same characteristics.
The Cape Cod shed is also reminiscent of the typical fishing shanty that has dotted the shores of New England for over 300 years. As well as being a simple finish, board and batten siding conveniently allows for finished siding to be installed later on.
The board and batten siding can also be painted with solid color stain like the building below.
The timber frame construction and barn board siding gives the interior a rustic look and a fills the building with a nice pine scent. The building below has finely finished trim work with a significant overhang and trim detail. If you happen to live in London, you might be able to score one of these bling garden sheds, better known as the Ecocube, from Ecospace. Made with sustainable cedar, this modern garden space has a sweet little deck, planter ready boxes, screens, and can be configured to your size and spec wishes. Made from top grade redwood painted choice of colours house grade upvc windows with 28mm double glazed units plus upvc french doors with saftey glass felt shingles on the roof.

A brief look at prefab storage buildings for sale at big box stores and on Amazon reveal that you can buy a 12' x 24' storage building kit for around $4,000. For an additional $2,000 you can build the slab or pillars, finish out the roof, finish the interior quite nicely with electric, water, and propane. Now, I feel it is necessary to make sure that I point out that safety should not be overlooked. You can plan for electric and plumbing service in advance, calculating how much wire, number of outlets, etc. You can prefab your kitchen cabinets, including counter tops, cutting out the sink hole and the stove inset, etc. You can prefab a staircase to a loft that is also drawers if the model you select has a loft with enough headroom.

Just like a Cape Cod style house, these buildings follow the common Cape Cod pattern, a low, broad frame building, with a steep, perfectly pitched roof. These were low, broad buildings with a relatively steep 10 or 12 pitch roof designed to maximize loft storage and "shed" snow during the cold New England winters. This shed also has an 8 pitch roof which is less steep and does not offer as much loft space as a steeper 10 or 12 pitch roof.

This does not include a foundation or roofing materials, but the "bones and skin" and a building.
With windows and adequate ventilation, I feel this is a viable option, especially if, like me, you intend to build a more permanent structure in the future.
You can build the kitchen cabinets ahead of time to be installed once the building is up because the doorways are large enough to moved them in and out.
Some of my best ideas come to me in the middle of the night, and this may be a solution to the conundrum of how to make a tiny house dream come true that sooner on a small budget. This will provide storage and be much more practical that climbing up and down a ladder to the loft.
Ecospace cubes can usually be configured and delivered in 12 weeks and take just 4 days to install. Last night around 2 am I had an epiphany: Utilizing a prefab building for a tiny home instead of building on a trailer.
But there is something more that, in my opinion, is even more valuable: It includes a product description of Storage Shed. I suggest adding additional framing if you find your shed is built using 24" on center construction. You be able to acquire all the materials to finish the inside as you wish (light fixtures, wiring, plumbing, etc) and take them to the build site.
If you have someone with a large tract of rural land with a house already sitting on it then that is even better. Built correctly, the staircase can also form one of the walls to the bathroom, providing additional storage for towels and toiletries. Having lived in a9x19' space (bathroom separate) with propane 2 burner hotplate, but no inside plumbing) for a year, 12x24 is luxurious! The frame and boarding is typically all rough sawn lumber, but can also be smooth or planed wood as well. I have known for some time that folks are using them, and until this time, dismissed it because I liked the idea of a house being portable, however there is some merit to using these. This by definition will often preclude the required permits, thus saving you prying eyes and bureaucracy.
The structure itself is shipped free, dropped off at the building site (you will need some able-bodies to help unload and move the materials). There are a great deal of homeowners who are creating it search like a cottage in their property. The primary reason that one of these buildings would be easiest to use is that in most rural municipalities, building a storage building doesn't require a permit. However, even if an inspection is required, have it done once the foundation and skin is built.
Taking the initiative to set footers in place and the sub floor built ahead of delivery, you can begin building almost immediately. DeleteReplypeppylady (Dora)November 14, 2013 at 4:33 PMIt amazing what one can do if there willing to take there time and look around for a good deal. However in some places only a permit and check of the structure is required providing there is no plumbing or electric run to the building. After that, no one will pay you any mind (well if you live in the sticks that is) and you can go about making improvements. Finishing out the interior may take a little longer, but because you are protected from the elements you can work at your own pace.
This does not mean than you can raise a building for different uses, for example a living arrangement, under that square footage without a grant.


Here is how I think I can create a "work around" and make this a reasonable solution to my building conundrum. The best way to go "unnoticed" is to build this where there is already a house and tie into the existing electric, water, and cable. Furthermore you may not change the utilization of a building without a building allow legitimately. They are anchored tightly to their trailers and the external treatments are often chosen for their wind resistance.
While most folks don’t move their tiny houses often, it can be a real benefit to have that option. A pre-built shed may or may not be sized to fit within the legal limit of a trailer, and it may not have been built with high winds in mind.
So if your intention to have mobility, greater care should be taken when selecting the right pre-built shell.With all that said, pre-built sheds are an option for some future tiny homeowners. Take notes about the construction details so you can compare later since after a while they will all look the same. The plywood (or OSB) add strength to the structure while the siding provides weather proofing. These materials can speed construction time and lower costs, but they put less material between you and the weather.Is there a layer of plywood (or OSB) decking between the roofing material and rafters? In many sheds you’ll look up and see the exterior roofing screwed right to the rafters. Just like adding extra layers to the walls, extra layers in a roof protect you better from the weather.Are the windows and doors good enough to use in a home?
Windows and doors are expensive so if your intention is to save money, try avoiding buying a shed shell with doors and windows that you’ll have to replace later.Is any house wrap used in the walls?
House wrap adds a breathable but weather resistant layer to walls and can significantly improve your home’s energy performance.Is there any roofing felt used in the roof? All sheathing, on the inside and out, should be connected to framing for fire protection and strength.Does the building have the right number of fire exists, as defined by your communities local code? The opinions they express are their own and may or may not agree with mine – or yours. If our home were not paid for we would go that route for sure!Reply Gil Palmer saysJul 16, 2013 at 3:43 pm This is one of the best posts ever on your site. I have read that elderly folks are buying these sheds, putting in kitchenettes, bathrooms, etc and majorly reducing their cost of living. We live in a small 464 sq ft cabin built on site by the same company that built the shed and brought it out. We finished it, doing all the work ourselves except for the electrical rough-in and the plumbing, which included hooking to our septic system. The wall AC unit also has heat.You can find photos at the link below if you would like to see it. Put it on 5 acres and completely finished it out myself from the 8 ft slider to the vaulted ceiling. In other words constructive critique is welcome, destructive mean-spirited judgements are not permitted.
