Garden Sheds

Plenty of space to work or relax
with an inviting porch and canopy.

This versatile model can feel more like a home than a garden shed. The gable roof can be extended to include a 3 foot overhang giving you a perfect little porch to relax on. This unique design also means lots of extra windows and an extra foot of wall height bathing the room in sunlight and providing all kinds of options for what to do with the space! Glen Echo garden work sheds can easily double as a workspace for the weekend artist or home entrepreneur. Vertical cedar siding is included on all Glen Echo models at no extra charge.

Our measurements (i.e. 8ft. x 12ft.) are taken from the outside of the floor & wall framing, therefore, they don't include the siding, and/or sheathing.

For true interior measurements, subtract the thickness of the wall framing; 3 ½” for 2x4 walls, and 5 ½” for 2x6 walls. Note: 2 x 4 is actually 1 ½” x 3 ½” and 2 x 6 is actually 1 ½” x 5 ½” due to the properties of "finished” lumber.

Wall Plan

Wall plan drawing for a Glen Echo building

For true exterior dimensions, add the siding, sheathing (if applicable), and corner trim pieces. The Canexel siding is 3/8" thick, the cedar siding is 3/4" thick and the log siding is 1 1/2" thick. The wall sheathing varies from 7/16” to 3/4”. The corner trim is 3/4".

If you have any other questions pertaining to the size of your Glen Echo garden shed building, please do not hesitate to ask us, we're here to help.

Roof Framing Plan

In strong competition with hip roofing, gable roofing is up there for the most popular roofing style. Common in Glen Echo sheds are gable roofs, which typically features a continuous ridge, with two sides sloping from the center toward the walls of the structure.

Gable roofs are much easier to frame, sheath, and finish, giving the vertical wall component of a gable roof its style, known as “gable ends”.

Ventilation is easy to install. Due to its geometry and access to gable ends, roof vents can be placed on the gable ends rather than the roof itself. Consult with your contractor or roofing company, for the most effective ventilation system for your roof.

Overhang Detail

Soffits are the cedar trim pieces that are attached to the underside of the rafter ends.
Fascia is typically the cedar 1x4 that’s used to cover the rafter tips and provide a nice straight level line for the bottom of your roof.

Foundations

The Glen Echo style is well suited for a traditional patio stone foundation. A concrete pad is also ideal for poolside applications.

Enhanced Siding Package

If you are thinking of adding insulation, consider adding one of our "enhanced siding packages". It's a layer of sheathing (OSB or plywood) and house wrap (Typar and optional HomeSlicker) that provides a moisture barrier to your structure.
