Chalet shed without porch

We’ve been building Chalet-style sheds for several years. They look like this:

They’re really cute! They have the look of a little cabin. A lot of our customers like the steep roof, for two reasons: they like the style, or they live where it snows and like the increased ability to shed snow. If you live in the foothills or mountain areas of Northern California, this style of shed fits in quite well!

We’ve been receiving requests to build a Chalet style shed without a porch: just a shed with a steep roof. So we started doing just that. Here is a picture of a display 8×15 Chalet.

So yes, you can order a Chalet without the porch! And yes, you will save money that way. The Chalet without the porch is the same price as a Premium Barn of the same dimensions. As with our other sheds, we can build the Chalet with shingles or a metal roof.

What makes Sequoia Sheds special?

Careful craftsmanship is our goal at Sequoia Sheds. If you’re wondering, “What does that actually mean?” this post is for you. Join me in a brief walk around our sheds, and let’s look at some of the features that distinguish our Premium line of sheds.

Let’s start at the ground level. The lumber in the floor is all pressure-treated to resist insects, moisture, and decay. The floor is solidly built with joists every 16 inches, and 3/4″ plywood on top. The plywood is tongue and groove, so the joints are sturdy.

Next, the walls. We frame our sheds primarily with nails, but at critical places we use screws to hold things together. The floor plate in this picture is an example. There are some times when a nail just isn’t good enough. Our roof overhangs are also fastened on with screws.

The walls are framed with studs 16″ on center, the same as standard house framing.

On our Premium Ranch sheds, where the top plates meet at the corner we overlap the top plates of the wall, so that the joint is secure. You don’t see that in a lot of storage sheds!

No more low shed doors, where you get scalped every time you go through! All our shed doors are at least 6’6″ tall, or the same as a regular house door, so you can stand tall as you enter the shed.

Notice the plywood panel on the inside of the door. All our Premium sheds have a double-panel door; one panel of siding on the outside, and one panel of plywood on the inside of the frame. This helps the door stay strong, and helps prevent sagging and warping.

Something else we’re careful about is our paint jobs. We carefully caulk the nail heads, and any gaps between trim and siding, and anything else that looks like it needs it, before we paint. We also caulk the seams between sheets of siding as the walls are being built. This picture shows how the joint between trim and siding is well hidden.

Here’s a few things we do to protect the exterior of your shed. We use metal drip-edge around the perimeter of the roof. We put a 4″ overhang on all sides, to let the water drip away from the shed. We also put a little ledge above the door to divert the water out, so the top of the door isn’t as exposed to water when it rains.

Last but not least, we use high quality architectural shingles from Pabco, rated for 40 years, on all our shingled roofs. A metal roof is also an option, and those last even longer!

The final product: a shed that’s built to last.

Sequoia Sheds Premium Ranch Shed

All-metal sheds, limited time only!

For a limited time, we are carrying a few models of durable all-metal storage sheds.

This metal storage shed is built rock-solid and will last forever. It’s framed with high-quality heavy-duty steel tubing. The walls and roof are covered with Classic-rib metal panels, rated to withstand the sun and rain for 45 years. No maintenance required! The only wood in this structure is the floor system.

It’s cool inside, too! The inside of the shed is lined with double-bubble insulation, with a radiant barrier turned outward, which brings down the temperature quite a bit inside. You can feel the difference in the summer!

Substantial overhangs on all sides add protection. And don’t worry about break-ins: a solid 4′ security door keeps your things safe. A lifetime of no-fuss storage!

Note: this shed was available for a limited time only, and only in the 10’x12′ size. We are down to one shed left, the one pictured below. We cannot build to order. See photos on this page for model currently available.

New Shed! Introducing the California Shed style

At Sequoia Sheds, we’ve just produced a new style of shed: the California shed.

The California shed has several new features. It has lap siding, a hip roof, and a dormer over the door.

Our goal in creating the California shed was to design a storage shed that would better match a house. A California storage shed in your back yard looks like it belongs there; like it fits with the house!

As always, we are open to customizing our sheds and building them to match what you as the customer have in mind. The California is just an example of what we can do. If you would like to add lap siding or a dormer to one of our other sheds, just ask! We can even match the paint colors on your house! We’re here to build the shed you need.

100% Financing for your shed purchase

The good news is, yes, you can finance your shed purchase! Sequoia Sheds now offers a financing program, through RTO National. You can finance as much or as little of your purchase as you want. That means you can put, say, $500 down and make payments on the balance, or put $0 dollars down, and finance the entire purchase!

Financing your shed purchase is a great option to have. It especially makes sense if you are already paying money every month to rent a self-storage unit. Instead of throwing your money away on rent, you could be paying off a shed. We would be happy to give you an estimate of what your payment size would be, based on the size and style of shed that fits your needs. Just drop us a line on the contact page, or give us a call at 530-840-4465, and ask about financing.

Here’s an example to think about. Say you purchase one of our Ranch Standard sheds, a 10′ x 12′ model. If you put $500 down, your payments could be as low as $42 a month (for a 48 month term, at the lowest interest rate). A $145 payment would pay the building off in only 12 months! If you put $0 down, your payment for a 48 month term could still be only around $55 a month. Of course, actual payment size will vary a little, depending on your interest rate.

And here’s one more example. Say you purchase a Chalet — one of our prettiest sheds, by the way :). For an 8’x15′ size, with a $500 down payment, your payments could be as low as $98 a month. That’s a lot of shed for $98 a month!

To see if you qualify, fill out an application for financing either online or at our office. The online application is here. You will be told what amount you are approved to finance, and what the interest rate will be. Rates range from 9.99% up to a high around 21%, based on your credit score. At our office, get results in minutes!

How can I get a shed in my back yard?

Have you considered getting a storage shed, but aren’t sure how it would get into your back yard? Maybe you just have a yard gate that’s 3 feet wide. Maybe you have a bigger gate, but that perfect spot for a shed isn’t quite as accessible as you wish it could be. Well, at Sequoia Sheds we’re here to help. We’ve had quite a bit of experience getting sheds to that perfect spot. Sometimes it’s up the hill, around the corner, through the gate, under the tree, and against the fence! But when it’s there, it’s obvious that’s the best place a shed could possibly be.

So here’s some information to help you decide what route to take. First of all, we do offer on-site builds as an option. For spots that just aren’t accessible to bring a shed in already assembled, on-site is the best. For a modest charge of 7.5% of the price of your shed, our crew will come out with a partly-assembled kit, and build your shed right where you need it. We almost always get done in one day, framing, shingling, paint and all. We do ask that you provide 18 inches of cleared area all around the spot where you plan to install the shed. If you want it right against the fence, it can be done, with a little extra work by our crew.

But maybe you’d like to save that on-site charge by getting a pre-fabricated shed, but aren’t quite sure if a shed can get to your site or not. Maybe a little information on how the shed is transported would help. We bring it out with a pickup, on a flat-bed trailer that tilts.

shed-on-trailer

The shed rolls off the back of the trailer, onto the spot you chose. When sitting on the trailer, the shed is about 2 feet higher than when it sits on the ground. So take a look at that electric wire, or those overhanging branches, as you plan your shed-entry route.

shed-coming-off-trailer

Also, if there’s enough width to get the shed in, but the truck and trailer can’t maneuver around the corner on your route, we have one more trick up our sleeve.

woodtone-ranch-with-wheels

See the wheels under the shed? With those wheels, and a small motorized dolly under the other end of the shed, we gain a lot of flexibility in maneuver. Chances are, if you have a wide enough gate, and the corners aren’t too tight to drive around with the shed on these wheels, we can get it in.

For information on site prep, see this.

The type of ground and the steepness of the terrain are both factors to consider as well. If you are unsure, please feel free to call us or email us a picture of your approach, and the spot where you’d like the shed. We’ll be happy to help you figure out which approach will be best.

I hope this information is helpful.

Perfect shed + perfect spot = SATISFACTION!
