Vinyl Cottage style shed with double 9-Lite Doors on the end

Leonard's backyard cottages are A-frame storage sheds and workshops, with the primary door located on the end. When the entrance is located on the gabel side of the structure, it allows for taller doors and transomes — taller doors like garage doors are better suited on the end.  To see plans with doors on the side see ranch sheds. Cottages make wonderful potting sheds, backyard storage buildings, and even garage workshops.   View Pricing Now

Leonard Gabel Piedmont diagram of construction

It starts with Leonard's famous notched skid floor system (see below).  The 2"x4" wall frame system is similar to house construction on 16" centers with top and bottom plate.  The gable roof system uses metal plates to bind rafters into place with high pressure pneumatic press. The Piedmont features LP SmarSide panel siding.  This material is simply the industry best and can be stained or painted to match your home.
