Sheds - Basic
The Shed Guys have three Base Models of Sheds.
They are: BASIC, DELUXE and PREMIUM.
Basic Models are designed 6” shorter in length than our other two models, and the overhangs around the building 3” – 6”. There’s a couple reasons why we do this: 1. The Basic Model is the only model at this time that is offered in an RTA Kit (Ready To Assemble), and these few things make it easier for the Do It Yourselfer to assemble. 2. It helps keep the cost down, making it a Great utility shed.
The foundation for this model includes brick pads (refer to “What’s Included”), that are squared and leveled, then we add either 4x4 or 4x6* Pressure Treated Skids (*4x6 are used in buildings over 12’ in length), on top of that is our floor joist system which is Doug Fir 2x4’s 16” o/c, and finally placed on that is ¾” plywood (top side sanded) which completes the floor.
We use T1-11 Dura-temp Siding. We have chosen to use Dura-temp Siding because it is a plywood back siding, and unlike your home you will see the back of the siding from inside your building and plywood gives a cleaner, brighter look.
Walls are framed with Doug Fir 2x4’s 24” o/c, a 2x6 ridge, (or 2x8 or 2x10 depending on the shed size) with 2x4 rafters 24” o/c. All walls are framed with a top and bottom plate using 2x4’s.
½” OSB (oriented strand board) is used as sub sheeting for the roof, with a 30-year three-tab asphalt shingles.
4’ wide shed door is standard on all shed/shed like buildings. This door comes with adjustable door hardware, galvanized hinges and swivel hasp. *RTA Kits do not have adjustable door hardware.
All builds are generally done within a day, larger buildings as in garages take more than a day, but less than a week.
Bricks – Concrete brick pads – 1 ⅝”, 3 ½” or 7 ½” (heights of bricks are determined by the levelness of your build site, or specific requests).
Pressure Treated Skids – 4x4 PT Skids or 4x6 PT Skids for any building over 12’ in length.
Floor Joists – 2x4 Floor joists, 16” o/c (on center).
Floor – ¾” One side sanded plywood floor.
Walls – 2x4 Walls, 24” o/c with 2x4 top and bottom plates.
Siding – ½” Duratemp T1-11 (plywood backed).
Trim Package – Our trim package for the Basic Model is siding that’s been ripped down for trim. The dimensions are: 2 ¼” x ½” and only the face is pre-primed.
Roof Sheeting – ½” OSB (oriented strand board).
Roofing – 30 year 3-tab asphalt roof shingles, two colors to choose from; black or light grey.
Shed Door – 4’ wide shed door with adjustable door hardware, galvanized hinges, and a galvanized swivel hasp closing mechanism.
