Adding a new shed to your backyard is all about solving problems. Mainly, where to put all your stuff. There are a lot of different types of storage shed styles and models to choose from depending on your personal taste and of course, the aesthetics of your backyard.
Let’s talk about the specific storage shed styles that our clients most commonly purchase to solve their storage needs.
In this post we will be focusing on:
Gambrel or barn style sheds are easily recognizable by their rounded barn-style roof line.
A perk of this roofing style is that it gives you an extra 3-feet of lofted storage potential. You have the option to put lofted storage at the back, front or both to maximize your storage capabilities. That’s a lot of space!
Another added benefit of this storage shed style is the double doors. This larger entry way door makes this shed perfect for storing larger power equipment like lawn mowers and accessories.
At Cool Sheds, we offer the barn style in many sizes from as small as 8×10 to as large as 12×36. See our available inventory.
Also known as a one slope shed or a vista style shed, single slope sheds are the perfect option for homeowners looking for a stylish storage option.
With a steep roof and LP Smartside exterior walls our single slope shed will never rust, corrode, develop mold or fall victim to termites.
As with all of our shed styles, you also have the option to customize your shed by selecting:
- Door Style
- Window Options
You can choose from two heights: standard or high wall. The standard wall version is a 96” interior front wall and 84″ rear wall. Our high wall version boasts a 102” interior front wall and 90” rear wall.
Another added benefit of our single slope roof sheds is the potential to increase natural light with windows. Many of our sheds come with windows already installed but you can work with our team to design a custom shed with the amount of windows perfect for you and your design aesthetic. See our available inventory.
If you’re looking to expand your storage options to accommodate your growing green thumb, then a greenhouse shed is the perfect solution.
A greenhouse shed is the preferred option for homeowners looking to extend the growing season of their crops and those looking to have a place to nurture their plants year-round without the risk of frost or pests.
Our greenhouse is constructed with galvanized steel stud framing, and SolarSoft pigmented polycarbonate exterior. We’ve found that this page material works much better than clear panels in our hot and sunny, South Carolina climate.

Our Modular or “Big Shed” can be anything you want it to be! Our most common request is for a garage/storage combo shed which offers a large open space with no obstructions.
You can truly make this large shed your dream storage house and when you no longer need the extra storage space, easily convert this big shed into a large garage, guest house, man cave, office, or she shed.
