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.

The Dutch Barn

With an arch-type roof truss system, Dutch Barns (aka the 'Workhorse of Storage') offer you the most cubic storage inches for your investment. 76” tall walls accommodate hanging tools or bikes along the sides. Wall space can also be utilized by installing optional shelving for smaller items. An additional 42” of storage space is available in the rafters, which is great for ladders or lumber storage. We can also install overhead lofts, which are great for storing seasonal items (winter tires, pool supplies, seasonal ornaments, old files) and all that other good stuff you may use someday!

Heavy Duty Dutch Barns include one double door and two windows. Doors can be placed either on gable end or side wall. This series is built to our heavy duty specs!

Features and Benefits

 

1. GAF / ELK lifetime warranted architectural shingles: 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: Shingles installed with nails have a much better holding power and a greater wind resistance. Shingles on all Pine Creek Structures heavy duty storage sheds are installed with nails.

 

3. Shingle cuts extended past drip edge: 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: 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: Double-bent trim edges have twice the strength, keeping trim more rigid, protecting it from buckling, and providing stronger wind resistance.

 

6. Fiberglass entry door with stainless steel butt hinges (standard on vinyl sided buildings):  Fiberglass doors are the most durable doors on the market and have a high impact resistance. If ever scratched, they can easily be touched up. It has a beautiful raised panel woodgrain appearance. The doors 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. Stainless steel hinges will never rust. The screws are concealed, making the door burglar-resistant. No screw holes in the face of the door.

 

7. Doors with 2x4 frames (set on edge for better support) and continuous aluminum piano hinge (standard on LP sided buildings): 2x4’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 of doors tight to discourage entry of unwelcome critters. A 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.

 

8A. Lifetime MFG Warranted Vinyl siding made from 100% Virgin PVC with no additives for fillers: 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.

 

8B. LP Smart Side (with a 50-Year MFG Warranty against splitting, cracking, delamination, and face defects) Panels are factory pre-primed and have a coated finish on the interior side. We add 2 coats of high quality latex paint (with 12-Year MFG Warranty against peeling, fading, or blistering): LP SmartSide is designed to withstand many years of exposure to the environment. With a manufacturer's 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. Factory pre-primed panels add another layer of protection against Mother Nature and improves the quality of paint finish on your building. Nobody 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.

 

9. All structural components are fastened with nails: Nails offer more holding power and ensure that your structure will stay as secure as the day it was built.

 

10. Pressure-treated floor joists: 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.

 

11. 5/8” coated engineered floor sheeting (Smart Floor by LP) with zinc borate treatment: 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.

 

12. Double studded corners in wall framing: Ensures you extra strength and stability at the corners of your structure.

 

13. Double plated top wall plates: Strengthens the walls at a crucial structural point. Keeps your walls from bowing out and ensures that your roof will not sag or bow.

 

14. Interlocking top wall plates at corners: 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.

 

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