Customer Questions & Answers

I want to use clay tile for the roof instead of shingles. It it rated for the weight? If so, how many are required?

Asked by: P10L
The truss system is rated at 40 psf snow load. I cannot provide you with an answer that this is enough strength to apply clay tile too. Also the roof sheathing is 7/16" OSB which is appropriate for nailing shingles too but may not be sufficient for tiles. I would direct your question to someone knowledgeable with the specifics of laying clay tile. Richard Best Barns

Any experience with building permits? (Northern Michigan here)

I'm curious what the cost/process/pain is for permits for these. What kind of code compliance issues are there in Michigan, specifically, if anybody is familiar with that?

New Castle 16 ft. x 12 ft. Wood Storage Shed Kit with Floor is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Shed! So far so good! Survived Irene! I followed the directions and the only issue I had was there wasn't enough nails included in the kit. I had to go buy more! Other then that, No problems!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good buy for the money The shed kit had to be shipped to us appx. 200 mi.away because there is no Home Depot close to us. The parts sent by the "Barn Company" came fine. The flooring had to be contracted to a local lumber yard. The shed is nice, but be wary you have to buy shingles seperately. You need to have a couple of strong helpers. All in all, it's a nice sturdy shed. You may need to buy extra nails as we did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice Building !!!!!! Excellent Storage Building , the Assembly Book easy to read and to follow the building progress is fun , everybody can put it together , no special knowledge needed . I recommend to use 3 people to set the Gables , because its heavy to lift and with a little wind it can flip over before you nail it in place . Very pleased about the customer service from Best Barns

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to assembly Directions were clear and easy to follow. Material was almost all cut to length, straight and I assembled the entire shed in just a few hours a night after work during the week. You will need at least one other person to help stand up the walls and set the roof trusses. It does not come with shingles which wasn't a big deal as I wanted them to match the house anyway. I bought the floor kit along with this shed that apparently comes from the local Home Depot. This would be my only complaint is that the floor kit was comprised of every twisted and warped board that must have been left over on the stack. The plywood flooring was fine but the boards used to make the frame were almost impossible to work with.
