FAQs Do We Make Amish Sheds? And Other FAQs

Do You Sell Amish Sheds?

Many of our customers want to know if the sheds we build are Amish sheds. While our sheds are not Amish-built sheds, they are similar in construction and styling to Amish sheds you may have seen. We employ a team of experienced Mennonite craftsmen who use many of the same traditional building methods to build our custom sheds.

Do you have buildings in stock ready for delivery?

Yes! Although we do a lot of custom shed building, we do keep a large supply of pre-built inventory at our main business location and at our dealers lots. These sheds are available for a quick delivery. See our In Stock Sheds page for current inventory.

Do you build sheds on-site or are they delivered as a complete unit?

We offer both on-site building options and fully assembled shed delivery. We will work with your situation. Generally, buildings over 10 feet wide are built on site. 8 foot and 10 foot wide buildings can be delivered fully assembled if the site allows access at least as wide as the building. With our new mule, we can squeeze through many tight spots and travel across wet yards without damaging them. If the required space is not available, we can build your shed on site for an extra charge. See more delivery details here.

Do you sell shed building kits so I can build my own shed?

No. All of our sheds are built to order to ensure the best build quality.

How do I prepare my site for shed delivery?

Your new shed will require a level site for proper installation. There are many ways to prepare your site for shed delivery. The easiest and most economical method is creating a level stone pad for shed placement. This allows the building to settle and provides proper water drainage.

How much does delivery cost?

If you live within 50 miles of our facility in Plain City, Ohio, shed delivery is free. Most sheds delivered to Columbus or Dayton, Ohio are included in our 50 mile radius. For additional delivery charges beyond 50 miles, please contact us!

Do I need a permit for my shed?

Requirements for permits vary from location to location. You will need to contact your local municipality to determine if permits are required in your area for the size of shed you wish to purchase. We can provide you with drawings and specifications to take to your local building department, but we do not obtain permits for you.

Should I get a treated floor for my shed?

As long as the building is in a dry area and ventilation is adequate, our standard shed floor is typically sufficient unless a treated floor is required by code. Treated plywood flooring will only provide protection from rot, not delamination in high moisture conditions. The 2 x 6 treated floor is recommended when the building is used as a garage for a vehicle or in high moisture areas.
