Style Profile: Quaker Sheds

One of the best all-around models for an elegantly simple look and an efficient backyard, Quaker sheds are one of the most popular options we build. While there are a huge variety of unique sheds you can choose from, sometimes the all-time classic is what you want in your backyard. We’re digging into this shed style to highlight the advantages and the look!

At B&L Woodworking, we build a diverse range of high-quality outdoor structures including pergolas, pavilions, gazebos, cabanas, and sheds. While all of these sheds are Amish-crafted and designed to last, we offer nine main shed styles to choose from and always give you the option to customize them. See what makes Quaker sheds such a popular choice — and bring one home today!

Hallmarks & Advantages of the Quaker Style Shed

With efficient storage and a beautifully simple design, it’s no wonder that a Quaker shed is one of the most popular sheds in backyards all across the country. While in many ways this is a standard storage shed, there are a few signature touches that set the Quaker style shed apart:

  1. Decorative Front Overhang — The hallmark accessory of a Quaker style shed, the front overhang is what gives the shed its unique profile. While the overhang is too small to actually block out the elements, it does give the shed a one-of-a-kind profile. Many homeowners say they like the Quaker style as it makes the structure stand out from sheds with a completely flat front and roof.
  2. Quaker Front — Another consistent trait of this shed style is the front, which features two shuttered windows and a door. While every arrangement of windows and doors is possible, the Quaker front is fantastic as the placement resembles the facade of many homes. Matching the look of your shed to your home is a surefire way to enhance the look of your entire property!
  3. Extra Height — When you have a lot of stuff you need to store, every square foot counts. The Quaker style shed design has a taller ceiling in the front which contributes to its unique look. Some homeowners choose to take advantage of this higher ceiling by adding a partial loft for extra storage. While you won’t have the same amount of vertical space as with a full two-story loft, you can definitely make use of the free space! Plus, if you’re looking to build a she-shed or an outdoor man cave, that extra height will make the inside feel roomier and more comfortable.
  4. Unique Style Made Affordable — Compared to dedicated designer sheds, Quaker sheds will be more affordable, yet still have a distinctly attractive exterior. This means choosing a Quaker model can allow you to have a bigger storage space for a smaller price. In fact, this is one of the best choices for a homeowner looking for a shed to be proud of, while sticking to a tight budget.

Always Trust Amish Quality for Your Shed

While the style and storage of Quaker sheds are the focus of today’s blog, there’s a factor that’s even more important than the shed model you buy: it’s the shed’s quality.

At B&L Woodworking, our sheds are built to not only look attractive but to provide decades of reliable, watertight storage. This comes from our superior materials like real wooden or vinyl siding, as well as the real asphalt shingles from which we make the roofs. In addition, all of our sheds are hand-built by Amish craftsmen right here in the USA.

However, not every shed is built the same way. For example, the structures you see in the parking lots of big box hardware stores oftentimes are not well made. This causes them to leak or all-around fall apart after just a few seasons in the elements. Once again, the way the shed was built dictates the outcome. Many cheaper sheds are made of less sturdy materials, hundreds at a time in huge factories overseas.
