Brechnock Orchard's Concession Stand in a Custom Shed

Brecknock Custom Built Shed

Brecknock Orchard is a beautiful, 75-year-old, family-run orchard located in Mohnton, Pa. This orchard offers a variety of outdoor adventures, but the seasonal Pick Your Own experience has grown wildly in its popularity and inevitably outgrew this family-owned orchard’s retail store in 2015.

Imagine biting into a sweet plump, or golden peach on a late summer evening. The sweet juices permeate your mouth and cause your taste buds to dance. This wonderful summertime experience is made more special by the fact that you are the one who picked that very peach. You didn’t pick it out of the grocery aisle, but directly from the mother tree and surrounded by acres of freshly grown fruits and vegetables in the open country air. How satisfying it is to pick your own fruit and to know exactly where it came from.

Brecknock Family Story of Their Custom Built Shed

The Pick Your Own experience is a seasonal adventure which is accompanied by several festival events. Summer and fall bring in the busiest times of the year, but the popularity of this “Pick Your Own” fruit and vegetable experience led Daryl and his team on a search to provide a more efficient space to serve their customers. Initially, they set up tents outside of their retail farm market to curve the overcrowding and to promote better customer flow. This only lasted a year, and the team at Brecknock quickly realized that the tents did not provide proper shelter for their staff, supplies, and equipment. Additionally, Daryl was looking for a structure that could provide more permanence and could increase customer flow.

In Search for a Custom Shed Builder

With these criteria in mind, the search began for a custom built shed.  Through careful research and thoughtful questioning, Daryl and his team came across Sheds Unlimited and unanimously agreed that the custom built sheds they offered had the most potential to fit the bill of their own design. The greatest challenge Brecknock faced up to this point was the need for something more than just the average custom shed.  So, after contacting several custom shed builders, they agreed that Sheds Unlimited would be most capable to deliver the custom design of a “concession” style shed needed to best serve their customers.

There was not a model building that we were aware of so we could say ‘that shed is what we want.’ Our greatest challenge was that this shed needed to be customized to meet our need for a PYO shed.

The process of deciding on a competent shed builder can feel overwhelming, but once Brecknock began working with Sheds Unlimited, they felt immediately understood and empowered to put their dream for a concession style shed into action.  From the very beginning of their interaction with Sheds Unlimited, through phone calls, emails, and an invitation to tour their facility and to see the options firsthand, Daryl and Ben felt confident that their ideas for their custom built shed could become a reality.

Arrival of Their New Custom Built Shed

Custom Built Sheds for More Space

The whole team at Brecknock waited expectantly for their new “portable concession stand” to arrive. It was due to arrive at the beginning of September right before their busy fall season. The delivery date was only two months from the day they had finalized the shed order.  In anticipation of the new addition to the Orchard, Daryl prepared a level gravel area with electrical hookup ready for the shed delivery.  The delivery day came and disappointed no one at Brecknock orchard. The shed arrived on time and was carefully put in its designated place.

The whole delivery and set up was supervised by an Unlimited Sheds representative whose presence ensured a smooth and thorough set up. The representative brought paint to touch up any minor scratches on the shed that occurred during transit. He also wanted to confirm with Ben and Daryl that all the components on their shed were as expected and to their complete satisfaction. Ben and Daryl appreciated that all the necessary electrical work was in place and ready to use.

Now the whole team at Brecknock enjoyed walking through their newly completed custom built shed. The large swing open concession doors with fold out countertops on three sides made for excellent customer service. The spacious interior was wide enough for at least six staff to move freely as they served customers at the three serving windows. The open ceiling had a large circulating fan to keep the staff comfortable on the warmest days. The built-in counter tops along all the walls provided ample storage space above and below the countertops. The shed entrance doors were on one end, consisting of double doors that swung open wide enough to set a bin filled with picking baskets inside the shed.

Sheds Unlimited went above and beyond by providing a five-week turnaround time to have the shed in place, electricity hookup, and ready to use during our busiest season.

A Successful Search Ends with Complete Satisfaction

Beautiful Custom Built Shed

Now with their busiest season underway, they were prepared and empowered to enter it with a new level of efficiency and quality. And that fall they did just that and were pleased to observe an increased effectiveness in setup and in service to their customers. The new custom shed was a complete reprieve from the previous use of tents.

There was no looking back now for the team at Brecknock Orchard. The future looked brighter than ever for their orchard, its operations, and most importantly its customers, whom they feel is their mission and honor to serve.

In the future, we will contact Sheds Unlimited as the builder for our next custom built shed.

The process to customize any one of the standard designs is ingenious. Surgey was helpfull in choosing the options and placing the doors. The delivery process went better than we expected based on the tight access to the pad.

We were extremely impressed with the precision in which Ryan  manipulated the muel.

Joe from High Bridge 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

Customers service was unreal (Thanks Mark!). I had to get a shed on a very short notice and tight time frame. They worked with me, were able to accommodate my timing which was a big deal. The item that worked for my specification was available, all the specs and requestioned were answered and reviewed with utmost courtesy, care and professionalism. Quality of the shed is amazing and at a great price. Would highly recommend !

First, I would like to say that everyone I spoke to at Sheds Unlimited was very accommodating. I needed more space in my 2 bedroom house, and I specifically needed a workspace for my growing home business, as well as an art studio. We were looking to create an alternate building in our backyard rather than live through the nightmare of adding on to our house.

Delmar was great at working with me from the start, and ran through several different estimates with me. They did a complete interior package for my shed in knotty pine and even installed radiant electric heaters that I purchased from another company so they could be hardwired behind the paneling and not have the ugly corrugated metal wires be left visible. I also chose to add a 8'x12' loft to my 12'x22' building, and they made me a beautiful detachable ladder so it could be moved when not in use. (Although, they made it so pretty I never want to move it!) Delmar was great at making sure I got the custom building I wanted.

Delivery was nothing short of amazing. We live in a very hilly area with tight, narrow streets. The tractor trailer couldn't even turn to get up our street, so our delivery guy loaded our shed on the mule and rode it up our steep street. Then he had to deliver it on an incredibly sloped, narrow yard. I am sure we were one of the harder deliveries he's had, but he worked at it like a trooper.

I am extremely pleased with my art studio out back. The work was meticulously done and well-built. They installed closed cell insulation which has made the shed easy to warm up even in 20 degree weather. It took the utility company 3 1/2 weeks to get me power after the shed was delivered, and because the shed was so well insulated, I could actually work out there in a heavy coat and not freeze in 35-40 degree weather. I think the combination of insulation and wood paneling also acts as a good sound proofer as well. I live in a pretty urban area and feel like the shed is very quiet compared to our house - I don't hear the outside noises of doors slamming and people talking as much when I am in there.

I would highly recommend this company. For the amount of space we got, we paid a lot less than we would have if we had put on an addition to our house of a comparable size. And best yet, it only had to be delivered!

Melissa Nannen from Bala Cynwyd, PA

Overall outstanding people, outstanding company and outstanding product. Delivery and set-up was Incredibly Professional and Skilled. Glenn delivered the wood shed - a very odd shape at 16 x 4 and extremely difficult to place on location given the small hill, basketball pole in the way and unstable shape (4' width). Matched perfectly a shed purchased several years before from Sheds Unlimited. Would go to Sheds Unlimited again (and did).

Awesome experience! The 3 guys who erected the building were wonderful and very accomadating. The building is beautiful, and is actually being turned into a residence. I couldn't be more happy. They are hard working, despite rainy weather and very mountainous terrain. I am making a CD of the process for their office. Again kudos to all involved, and thank you.

Karen Sullivan from Charity, Va

The enire process was made easy by the  staff.  From planning to building all was explained to me and the process couldn't have been easier.  To actually see the crew build the two car garage with a work room over it in two days was most impressive. The quality of their work was amazing.  They brougth everything with them including a dumpster to take away any debris that was left over.  I highly recommend this organization to anyone who is contemplating building a garage.

Arthur B from Masdhpee,MA

Very happy with the construction of the shed. Far superior to others I looked at. They were a pleasure to work with.

David Robertson from Alexandria, VA
