Outdoor Garden Gambrel Sheds
Garden sheds might be a purely utilitarian structure, intended as nothing more than a storage space for tools and garden supplies, or it might be a showpiece in its own right. There are some designs of garden sheds. One of the most popular is a gambrel shed. The gambrel sheds modeled to look like a smaller version of a barn of the same style. So named for the pitches of the roof on the structure, the gambrel shed has four slopes to the roof line, two on each side. The first slope from the peak in the middle is a shallow angle, and the second slope on each side drops off steeply. This makes for a dramatic and stunning roof line, and it allows for maximum headroom in the middle of the shed. It has the advantages of a sloped-roof design, such as easy snow removal when necessary.
Like a barn of the same design, gambrel sheds has more storage space and headroom than its pitched-roof counterparts. Sometimes, the roof space of a gambrel sheds can be closed off like a small attic to provide more storage space, or the roof beams simply can be used to store items. To maximize its capacity even more, sliding doors can be added. Many gambrel sheds have been built by homeowners from kits or plans. Again, like the gambrel style of barns, they are constructed from timber and are often painted red with white trim. The sheds usually are used for extra storage, but they can be used as outdoor offices or small hideaways.
