Pre-Sales

Who is Sheds Unlimited?

If you visit our manufacturing facility in Lancaster County you will see both Amish and non-Amish working together. While not all of our employees are dressed in traditional Amish attire, most come from Amish roots or have a similar background. Our whole team is committed to providing the old fashion quality, attention to detail, and hard working mentality that Amish craftsmanship is known for.

You are more then welcome to stop buy anytime during our business hours. No appointment needed. You will find us in the office Monday-Friday from 8-5 and on Saturdays from 9-4. We look forward to seeing you!

Absolutely! Let us know what you are thinking and we will work with you to bring your dreams to reality.

If you visit us at our manufacturing facility in Morgantown, PA you will find up to 200 buildings on site. Some are custom orders waiting to be delivered to other clients and some are stock buildings ready for immediate purchase. Walking through these sheds provides a hands on experience that can help guide your decisions on size, color, and style.

No we do not. We believe that working directly with you provides the best customer service experience and can also save you money.

When you purchase a building from Sheds Unlimited you are buying directly from the manufacturer. Other companies will purchase Amish made structures in bulk from Lancaster County and resell them at a profit. Buy cutting out the middle-man you can get a custom structure and save hundreds or sometimes even thousands of dollars!

We value each and every customer and focus on providing you with the best possible customer experience. At Sheds Unlimited we are not merely interested in building you a top quality shed or garage. Our goal is to make your dream a reality, help increase your property value, and give you the space to help organize your life.

Preparation & Delivery Area

We do not recommend using concrete blocks under your building. Spacing and leveling blocks can be extremely difficult and they do not provide even support. Over time an unlevel pad can cause the building to settle which can cause doors and windows to bind.

As the customer, you are responsible for site preparation. Our drivers won’t have the necessary equipment with them to level and prepare the area. However, you can visit the links below to see what we recommend.

Gravel Shed & Single Car Garage Pad Preparation

Concrete Garage Pad Preparation

Or if you would prefer to have a professional install the pad for you we have a few local companies that we recommend below.

Better Built Pads, Honey Brook, PA – 610-273-2571 or 717-629-0968

Bedrock Foundations, Coatesville, PA – (484) 712-8828 or (717) 587-7062

Firm Foundations, Honey Brook, PA – 717-629-0689

We cover a 300 mile radius from our facility in Morgantown, PA. That includes: DE, MD, NJ, VA, NY, WV, MA, and CT. On occasion we deliver to Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and Ohio.

Shed pad costs can vary between different contractors. You can anticipate around $4.00 per square ft for the smaller shed pads, and the cost could drop to $3.50 per square ft for the larger pads. Keep in mind that if you have a lot of slope, the price will change to reflect the cost for grading to level the site.

For buildings with a wooden floor we recommend installing a gravel pad. For buildings without a wooden floor a concrete pad is required. You can find more information about what we recommend here.

We are committed to meeting your needs and will do everything we can to answer any questions you have. From our years of experience we have become very good at communicating through emails, pictures, and phone conversations. If you feel you need to speak with someone on site then we can provide that for you for a fee.

Pricing

Our prices are factory direct prices and we do our best to keep them as low as possible.

Most of the time we have stock buildings at a discounted price because they are already built and not customizable, so make sure you check out our deals page to see what we have in stock.

Also, January and February are our slow months and Sheds Unlimited has given discounts during the off season in the past. You can check our website from time to time to see if there are any discounts available, or sign up with your email address at the top of the page.

All of our prices can be found on our website. However, if you would rather speak to someone in person, feel free to give us a call! Or you can fill out our online estimate request form here.

Sorry, we do not offer financing at this time.

We do not offer rent-to-own because we do not believe it is in the best interest of our customers. If you put the purchase on your credit card and make payments that way, you'll often pay less than you would using a Rent-To-Own option! The interest alone for Rent-To-Own will cost you an extra 25% to 35%. While renting a storage shed may seem to be a good option (based on the low monthly payments), we highly encourage you to consider what the shed will cost you in the long run.

Our shipping cost is a mileage charged based off of the size and style of the building plus any shipping permits necessary. The first 20 miles are always free!

To get an estimated delivery cost, you can contact our office via phone or email. You can also submit an estimate request here.

Our shop is set up and equipped so that our team can build each building in the most efficient way possible. While our onsite crews are experienced and sent with all the appropriate equipment, it will still take them more time to assemble the building then it would in the conditions of our shop. Traveling time is also a factor in the build on site charge as well.

Kits

While we do offer two story sheds and garages that can be delivered in a modular design or built on site by our crew, we do not offer them as DIY kits. These buildings are much more complicated construction projects that should not be attempted by anyone other than a professional.

We recommend at least 2 or even 3-4 people at times. There will be heavy parts such as wall and floors and of course the size of the building will play a factor.

Erecting a small shed should take one to three days depending on your level of expertise and building knowledge.

Our warranty only applies to buildings which the Sheds Unlimited team assembles. We always want satisfied customers, so be sure to contact us if you have any questions or trouble.

1. A knowledge of building
2. A hammer (Though power tools can make the job a bit faster and easier.)
3. 1” and 3” nails or screws
4. Tape measure
5. Screw gun
6. Hand saw or sawzall (for just a few cuts)
7. Sledge hammer (optional)
8. Utility knife
9. Small speed square

If you have any questions or problems while assembling your building, then please contact our office. One of our team will be happy to assist you!

DIY shed kits are the same cost as a fully assembled shed. The reason for this is because it takes just as much time in our shop to put together the kit and package it as it does for us to build it.

As a family owned Amish-Mennonite company we take pride in what we do. Each kit is carefully put together with quality building materials and will outlast almost any metal or plastic shed.

Stock Sheds

Our building specifications are listed online along with our prices. Simply find the building you're interested in and click on the details and specs button. If you have other questions, feel free to contact us!

Permits

Drawings for two car garages (and larger) are included in the purchase price. However, we do ask for a deposit of $275 to supply you with the drawings. The $275 will be credited back to when you purchase that garage. Here are some sample drawings.

Sheds and Single Car Garages work a little bit differently. In most cases your township will be satisfied with our standard spec sheet and a catalog or pictures of a similar building. If you do need drawings specific to your shed the $275 deposit is the same. You will be credited back $100 when you purchase the shed. We always recommend double checking with your township to see what they require.

Every town has different regulations about adding an accessory structure. Contact your town or township to learn what the regulations are in your area. You will be responsible for obtaining any required permits and the fees associated with them.

If you are purchasing a portable structure (one with a wooden floor), make sure the town understands the building is not a permanent structure. In most of cases, property taxes will not be affected if the building is not permanent and the pad is permeable.

The permit cost you are seeing is a permit for transporting an oversize load in the state. Every state has different fees and requirements for hauling.

Ordering

To finalize an order you will need to call in and speak with one of our sales reps. At that point we will go over all of the building details with you including colors and the placement of the doors and windows.

Once you have used our website to decide on a style, size, and siding you can call us or submit an estimate request online. One of our sales staff will answer any additional questions that you might have and walk you through the order process. Our sales staff will make sure that the windows and doors are positioned at the right location to best meet your needs. They will also ask you for your color choices for the siding, trim, roofing, etc. Once you are ready to place the order we will need your deposit to finalize the order.

Upon placing the order for sheds or single car garages, we ask for a 30% deposit if the cost of the building is under $8,000.00 and 50% if the order is over $8,000.00. In addition, any building being delivered to New York City or Long Island, NY, requires a 50% deposit. The balance is due on delivery.

For two and three car garages, payments are as follows: 30% when the order is placed, 30% prior to beginning construction in our shop, then the final 40% when the building is assembled.

We accept cash, check, debit cards, and most credit cards.
All checks should be sent to:
Sheds Unlimited
2025 Valley Rd
Morgantown, PA 19543

Your deposit is a confirmation of your order. We request that you sign your sales order and return a copy to Sheds Unlimited for our records at the time of your deposit.

In the case that it is necessary for you to cancel your order, we can refund your deposit minus a 5% fee for office costs, if we have not constructed the building or ordered materials. In the case that we have already begun manufacturing, additional costs will be incurred.

Our lead time varies depending on the time of year and order volume. January, February, and March are typically our least busy months and when our lead time will usually be around the 2-4 week mark. As we get into the summer and fall months our lead time can stretch out to 10 weeks. Call us to get more exact lead times – we do our best to get you your building as soon as possible!
PS. Often we have a supply of in-stock and discounted buildings that are ready for an earlier shipment.

Options

Miscellaneous

Like your house, a shed is framed with wood and then a structural panel is added on the outside of the framing. To make the shed livable as a Tiny House, Man cave, or She Shed you will need a few modifications: upgrade to the insulated windows and doors, add insulation, and install electric (and plumbing if desired).

Keep in mind that if the shed will be used for a permanent living space, your town may have requirements and restrictions on how the structure is designed or finished. Living in a structure brings it under the international building code and that does require more approvals.

Your two car garage includes custom shop drawings. Our other buildings do not come standard with drawings, but you can find many pictures of similar buildings in our photo galleries.

At this time we are not able to do interior finish work. However, you can certainly hire a contractor or finish the interior yourself once the building is in place.

Usually our buildings are delivered completely assembled. If the building cannot be delivered assembled because of limited access to your backyard, the building is too large to be hauled fully assembled, or other reasons, then we can build on site for an additional charge. Or if you prefer, we do offer some of our sheds in a DIY kit form.

There are two easily overlooked things that we like to recommend.

A ramp is a wise idea if you plan on rolling anything into your shed like a lawn mower.

We also recommend venting. We offer 3 different styles: Standard Gable Vents, Classic Gable Vents, and a Ridge Vent.

You can find out more about these options as well as others we have to offer of our options page here.

If you have custom ideas in mind, make sure you share it with our sales staff. Most likely we can supply you with exactly what you have in mind!

Our sheds, single car garages, and modular designs come standard with a wooden floor. If you purchase a two car garage or larger garage (considered a permanent structure) a concrete pad or foundation is required and will act as the floor of the building.

Of course! We can’t imagine selling a shed or garage without a roof! All of our buildings are sold complete with a roof. Architectural shingles are our standard roofing, but we can use metal roofing or a custom roofing of your choice as an option.

All of our buildings are built with the same high quality materials. The difference is appearance and detail. If you look at the Standard buildings you'll see narrower overhangs, a basic trim package, and a low roof pitch.The Classic buildings have nicer trim along with a steeper roof and wider overhangs. Then the Premier buildings feature a sharper design with a steepest roof pitch possible, additional windows, and trim around the windows.

We offer a large range of standard sizes on all of our buildings and can even do custom sizes.

Choosing a building size can be a challenge. To get an idea of how much space you need park your car or items you plan to store on your driveway or lawn and space them in a way that you think would work best in your building. Then measure the space. If you're still unsure about what size you need, we always recommend going larger. We’ve never had anyone say they got too big of a building!

All portable garages have heavier floors with the floor joists 12" on-center which is enough to support your motorcycle or a small car. If you prefer a more heavy duty floor it can be upgraded to 8" on-center to give you a 33% stronger floor.

The standard shed floor will work great for a scooter or small cycle. If you plan to store a large road bike we recommend a heavier floor at 12" on-center (the same as the garages).

Siding

We can match almost any house siding. We'll need to know the manufacturer, brand, and the size of the siding, then we'll research and provide a quote to match your siding.

Yes. Just let us know what you are looking for and we can put together a quote for you!

Yes we do! For a small fee we can get a custom paint match of whatever color you desire. All we will need is a color chip.

DuraTemp is a standard Douglas Fir plywood panel with a composite veneer on the face and vertical grooves 8” on-center much like T-111. It has been a very common shed and garage siding for a number of years.

LP Smart Siding has the same appearance of T-111 and DuraTemp with vertical grooves 8” on-center. But how it’s made is more like OSB and every wood layer gets a antifungal treatment before they are pressed and glued together. This treatment helps prevent against rot and decay.

Our stock siding options include: DuraTemp and LP Smart panels, a 4” dutch lap vinyl siding (standard on many houses), and the LP Smart Clapboard with 5" exposure.

If you are looking for a specific siding we are happy to provide you with a custom quote as well!

Doors

Yes, steel doors are available upon request.

Yes, we can paint both wooden and fiberglass doors. However, if you have requested steel doors, they are only available in white.

All doors other than our wooden doors are made of fiberglass unless otherwise stated. We have found that the fiberglass doors hold up better over time and are less susceptible to scratches and dents. If you prefer steel doors, they are available upon request.

Windows

Yes! We can add as many windows and doors as you want. We can also take them out if you prefer.

Yes, our standard windows do open and have screens. Our slider windows are single hung and the bottom half slides up and down.

Transom, octagon shaped, or other specialty windows do not open and are meant for aesthetics and allowing light to enter the building.

Standard windows sizes are: 18x23 and 24x36. Transom windows are: 10x18, 10x23, 10x29, and 10x35.

We have many custom sizes as well, just let us know what you have in mind.

Customization

Yes! We will just need to know the brand, style, and color.

Our standard shed floor comes with pressure treated runners (4x4's) on the underside and boxing (the frame around the floor joists). This means that everything exposed to the elements is pressure treated. We do not believe that it is necessary, but if you prefer the floor joists and the floor plywood to be treated we offer that as an option.

Yes, we can! Just let us know what type of siding you are looking for and we can put together a custom quote.

Garages

Multiple Car Garage

Yes, assembly is included in the price. All the two car garages are brought out in pre-fabricated pieces, assembled on site and attached to the concrete floor/foundation. The exception is our Modular Double Wide Garage which comes with a wooden floor and is delivered in two halves.

Yes, modular means delivered in more than one piece. Our modular garages come in two halves which our crew will put together once on site. Our two story modular sheds also come in two halves- a top and a bottom which our crew puts together on site. The assembly of the two halves is included in the cost of the building.

Single Car Garages

Absolutely! Only if there is not enough space in the wall to fit the windows and/or doors will we need to recommend otherwise.

Yes, we have a limited number of interior pictures in the photo galleries. If you can’t find what you are looking then please contact our office. One of our sales reps will be happy to assist you!

Garage Doors

Custom size garage doors (smaller, wider, and taller) are available. In most cases, to change to a larger door you will need to upgrade to higher walls and possibly taller beams over the wider garage doors.

Our garages come standard without an opener, but they are definitely an option. Make sure to ask your sales rep to include one in your estimate and we will be happy to install it for you.

Standard garage doors are 9x7. We will install the standard garage door if the wall has the width and height for the 9x7 garage doors. On the 10' wide garages, we install an 8' wide garage door. On the Premier garages the garage door hight is 6' 6".

Delivery

Delivery & Installation

Unfortunately, permits and traffic keep us from delivering on the weekends. Deliveries are scheduled Mondays through Fridays.

No, we do not have the necessary equipment to lift a building over a house or fence. If you do not have adequate room to get a fully assembled building using our Mule, we would need to build on site.

Our driver and set up team will collect payment when your project is complete. Most of the delivery trucks have credit card processors on board and if you plan to pay cash or check the driver will pick that up upon completing your building.

We have some of the latest and greatest tools available when it comes to shed deliveries. Rather than taking a heavy truck and trailer into your backyard we have invested in “Mules” that can easily move your shed into place. They greatly reduce the possibility of ruts in your lawn and allows us to install the shed just where you need it. Check out the video of a typical delivery here.

That depends on the type of building as well as the added options. In most cases, we can assemble a shed in 6-12 hrs. The standard 2 car garages will be assembled within 1 day, but the 2 story and 3 or 4 car garages can take up to 3 days to assemble.

If we need to move the shed across terrain that is more than a 15 degree angle, we will ask you to send us a few pictures or a video of the route of travel. With the pictures and video, we can determine if the shed can be moved in with the Mule.

The answer can vary depending on the building type and overhangs. But in general, we need a space 2’ wider than the gable end of the shed. For example: We would need a 12’ wide opening to get a 10x16 shed through.

Our shipping coordinator will contact you about 1-2 weeks before your shed will be delivered to make sure that the day works for you. For the multiple car garages and build on site buildings, the job supervisor will be working with you to make sure all the site work is complete before the garage can be scheduled for delivery.

If you do not have adequate access to get a fully assembled building into your backyard we are able to build on site. However, this can add a significant amount to the cost of your shed. We always recommend checking to see if it is possible to take down a section of the fence temporarily.

The Mule is a very agile machine and works well on sharp corners. If there are questions, please don't hesitate to send us a picture or take a short video of the route of travel. It’s always better to answer those questions before we deliver your building!

The delivery Mule has wide tires and there are an additional 4 tires on the dolly wheels that assist the Mule in moving the shed. With the combination of the 6 tires, the pounds per square inch is similar to the weight of a riding lawn mower. If your riding lawn mower is able to cross over the area without doing damage then the delivery mule should be able to do the same.

Travel time from our facility will affect the delivery time and on most days the driver will have multiple deliveries. Our shipping coordinator will work with you to set up a delivery timeframe that works for your schedule.

Anchoring the shed is not necessary unless specified by your township. However, we can install an anchor kit for you for an additional fee. Or you can purchase the kit and install it yourself.

We just got our new 12' X 24' shed and we love it! Well constructed - great craftsmanship - and very, very attractive. Style and colors complement our home perfectly. Will be a much needed place to store items and to woodwork. Company very pleasant and professional.
And the Mule is an amazing invention!!

Steven D from Old Lyme CT

Without reservation, I recommend Shed's Unlimited for your next project! I'm almost 60 and I must say the work ethic, skill, and speed exceed what I have been used to. No time wasted, and no corners cut! I would use them again in a heartbeat! They arrive on time and had my 24' x 48', 4 car, finished in 12 hours, locked and cleaned up and off they went. The web site is thorough and no exaggerations.
Thanks Again!!!

Larry P. from Ithaca, NY

Great prices, outstanding customer service and the shed surpassed our expectations for quality. Mark, Austin and the rest of the staff at Sheds Unlimited were great through the entire process. Would happily recommend them to family and friends alike.
Mike

Mike from Belle Mead, NJ

Great experience from beginning to end. We are well satisfied with the construction and delivery of our shed. We have had several neighbors comment that the shed looks nice. I would recommend Sheds Unlimited without a second thought.

Sanford Alabovitz from Reading, PA

great price..delivery quicker than local places..courteous staff

mary and dennis demoore from North babylon, new york

The folks at sheds unlimited are the very best. I talked to them several times before ordering, and they answered every question, and then some. I live in a neighborhood with an association, and need to have all building plans approved. Sheds unlimited provided me with color samples, and a drawing. I made many changes in the workshop, moving the doors to the end, left the shutters off, added window boxes, and added one foot to the height of the walls to accommodate our golf cart.
We live as far south on the eastern shore of Virginia. Our shed arrived on time, and was built exactly as promised. The driver was courteous, and operated the "mule" without any effort. He placed the shed exactly on my marks, leveled the shed, and insured the doors would open properly.
I would, and have recommended Sheds Unlimited to my friends, and would buy from them again.
In this day, and age there is a lot to be said for integrity, and Sheds unlimited certainly has that!!

Borught this shed over the phone after viewing pictures sent via email. I do alot woodworking and I was very happy with Shed - looks great, well constructed and a great value. The deliverer (Shane I beleive) did a really great job using the shed muhle and navigating into the back yard. Took a while, but he was pesistent and finally made back. Thanks!!!

Bill from Barnegat Light, NJ

When our church was presented with a storage need we started looking for a shed. Fortunately we were led to Sheds Unlimited. Austin, who walked us through the the options,was very patient and answered all our questions and never let on how little we knew about shed construction. He sent requested support diagrams and information for our congregational presentation and permit request. Everything went smoothly and we are very happy. Thank you Austin and the staff and owners of Sheds Unlimited Inc. it has been a pleasure doing business with you. Too bad you only let me give you 5 stars...you deserve MORE!

New Life Community Church from Huntingdon Valley, PA

beautiful job - these guy did a great job and built our garage in one day. They even custom matched the colors of our house. many people have commented how nice our new garage looks and how well built it is

rache d from Dorset vermont

Excellent job by everyone at Sheds Unlimited. From the design phase with Mark and Delmar to plans and scheduling with Kyle and John. Everything went exactly as planned and scheduled, which is a rarity these days. Any questions or concerns on my 24x36 oversized 3 car garage were answered within minutes not days or weeks. Craftsmanship is A+ and the crew of four workers were second to none working quickly and carefully to keep my already landscaped site prestine. Thank you guys again for a job well done!
