Gambrel Barns

Maximized Storage, Bona Fide Barn Appeal

Custom designed to your specs!

The gambrel roof style is associated with colonial architecture—particularly Dutch colonial architecture. Early Dutch settlers in New York, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and western Connecticut built homes that reflected their Dutch culture. Later, by the late 19th century, Americans began to look back romantically on their colonial roots. This nostalgia began to be reflected in American colonial revival architecture. Within this colonial revival, one of the more popular designs was a redux of the original Dutch colonial. This design provided the advantage of a sloped roof, while maximizing head space.

Features and Benefits

All Heavy Duty standard building include our 6-YEAR Top-to-Bottom WarrantySee why Pine Creek Structures is different below.


Pine Creek Structures Features:

Yes There IS a Difference! Compare to Other Manufacturers

What's the benefit of this feature?

1. GAF / ELK lifetime warranted architectural shingles.

1. Three-tab shingles with 25 or 30 year warranty, or architectural shingles with lesser sealing qualities, lesser warranties and quality of shingles.

1. GAF / ELK is the best sealing and highest quality shingle we have ever used. The lifetime architectural shingle adds beauty and an extended life to your roof. This shingle has great wind resistance.

2. All shingles are installed with nails.

2. Shingles installed with staples.

2. Shingles installed with nails have a much better holding power and a greater wind resistance.

3. Shingle cuts extended past drip edge.

3. Shingles cut flush with the end of the drip edge. As shingles age they will shrink, exposing the drip edge to rain and snow. When this happens, water will run underneath your shingles and rot out your roof.

3. Shingles that are extended past the roof edges allow for shrinkage and preserve your building for decades of use.

4. Woodgrain vinyl-coated aluminum trim.

4. Flat painted aluminum trim with no wood grain.

4. Beautiful woodgrain vinyl coating; has better fade resistance; is thicker and more rigid, making it buckle-resistant and impact-resistant.

5. Aluminum trim with double-bent edges.

5. Edges with no bends that have no protection against buckling.

5. Double-bent edges keep the trim more rigid and protect it from buckling. It also has a stronger wind resistance.

6. Stainless steel butt hinges (on wood doors).

6. Steel T-hinges that are screwed to the face of the door. These hinges will eventually run rust streaks down over the face of your door.

6. Stainless steel will never rust. The screws are concealed, making the door burglar-resistant. No screw holes in the face of the door.

7. Continuous aluminum piano hinges (on fiberglass doors).

7. Steel T-hinges that will eventually rust. 7. The piano hinge has continuous support along the entire door. It is fully aluminum and will never rust. Unlike T-hinges, the fasteners are covered by trim, making it burglar-resistant.

8. Fiberglass entry door (standard on vinyl buildings).

8. A wood door covered with vinyl siding or a steel entry door. A steel entry door is very easy to dent and if scratched it is impossible to touch up so that it cannot be seen. Steel doors also have exposed wood around the sides which will eventually rot.

8. Fiberglass doors are the most durable doors on the market. Fiberglass doors have a high impact resistance. If ever scratched, they can easily be touched up. Has a beautiful raised panel woodgrain appearance. They will never rust, and all edges are sealed with no wood exposed to the elements. The interior core of the door is insulated with spray foam insulation.

9. 2 x 4 door frames, set on edge for better support.

9. 2 x 3 or 2 x 4 door frames laid flat. In some cases, no door frames. 9. 2 x 4’s set on edge will keep your doors rigid, discouraging the top of your doors from bowing out and being open to the elements, and also keeping the bottom ofdoors tight to discourage entry of unwelcome critters.

10. All structural components are fastened with nails. All exterior nails (on Duratemp/LP Smart Panel sided structures) are galvanized to ensure no rust spots on the exterior of the building.

. Staples are commonly used for many construction applications.

10. Nails offer more holding power and ensure that your structure will stay as secure as the day it was built.

11. 3” overhang over double door (on eave side over double doors on LP sided structures).


11. Roof edge flush or with no overhang.

11. Protects against door and trim rot by preventing rain from entering the top of the doors, and by preventing ice or snow build-up above doors

12. Lifetime warranted Vinyl siding made from 100% Virgin PVC with no additives for fillers.

12. Many vinyl sidings on the market use fillers such as sand or other by-products to reduce the amount of resins needed to make the siding. This is why many vinyl sidings fade after installation. 12. You get the peace of mind that your shed has one of the best vinyl sidings on the market. This 100% PVC product is guaranteed not to fade as it ages. It has one of the better wind load and impact resistance ratings on the market.

13. LP Smart Side®, (our preferred choice) with a 50 year warranty against splitting, cracking, delamination and face defects. This product has a coated finish on the interior side. Also available: Fir Duratemp plywood siding with a hardboard exterior face. Both are available in 22 colors. Siding panels are factory pre-primed.

13. Regular plywood-type T-111 with a non-coated exterior finish. As this product ages, it will actually wick moisture, causing separation and delamination to the entire panel. Unprimed exterior siding products.

13. LP SmartSide is designed to withstand many years of exposure to the environment (50 year warranty). With a warranty like this you can’t go wrong! This is an engineered product with zinc borate treatment (a long-acting treatment against moisture, mold and termites). The interior of this siding has a coating which gives your interior a consistent appearance. Fir Duratemp plywood siding has a hardboard exterior finish, which is insect and moisture repellent. Factory pre-primed panels add another layer of protection against Mother Nature. It also improves the quality of paint finish on your building.

14. Two coats of high quality latex paint with 12-year warranty against peeling, fading, or blistering (on LP Smart Side or Duratemp sided buildings).

14. Lesser quality paints that may not have fade resistant qualities or warranties. 14. No body likes to paint! Our coatings will last years longer than most of the latex paints on the market today. You have the peace of mind of knowing that your building will keep its original beauty for many years.

15. Pressure-treated floor joists.

15. Regular kiln-dried 2x4 floor joists.

15. Pressure-treated floor joists add many years of rot-free and termite-resistant protection to your floor. Your building will only last as long as the foundation it is built on.

16. 5/8” coated engineered floor sheeting (Smart floor by LP) with zinc borate treatment.

16. Regular plywood or OSB floor sheeting with no manufacturer’s warranties.

16. 5/8” engineered sheeting gives you added support needed for riding mowers, ATV’s and other heavy storage. This is a solid compressed product, unlike plywood, which may have voids in the plys, causing weak spots or delamination in the floor. Zinc borate treatment is a long-acting preservative against moisture, mold, rodents, and termites. The coated overlay gives you a clean appearance and makes cleanup jobs much easier.

17. Double studded corners in wall framing.

17. Single-studded corners.

17. Ensures you extra strength and stability at the corners of your structure.

18. Double plated top wall plates.

18. Single-plated top wall plates.

18. Strengthens the walls at a crucial structural point. Keeps your walls from bowing out and ensures that your roof will not sag or bow.

19. Interlocking top wall plates at corners.

19. Wall plates are just butted together and toe-nailed.

19. The wall plate corners fit together snug like a puzzle, then are nailed thru the top plate into the bottom plate. This ensures you a rock-solid corner joint that will not separate.

20. High quality kiln dried framing lumber with very few knots and little or no bark. Spaced on 16” centers for framing.

20. Lower quality lumber that has not been properly dried will crack, twist or bow as it dries out. Improperly dried wood will also grow mold and fungus.

20. All wood used is guaranteed to be structurally sound. The inside of your building will have a clean appearance. You will see very little, if any imperfections on the lumber. We guarantee termite-free and mold-free wood. 2x4’s are spaced on 16” centers for a solid structure.
