Small barns and barn style sheds have traditional gambrel shaped roofs which provide more overhead loft space. Early farmers realized that to stack another bale of hay in the barn loft. It was necessary to split the A-Frame rafters and modify the pitch. A loft door was added to access the loft area from the exterior. Today most of these doors are decorative, but some barn shed models have working ones.
The exterior base has a furring strip on most of our barns for protection against warping caused by rain splash.
What size barn do you need?
Leonard offers barn style sheds in just about any size you want from a 6x8 to a 14x50. If you are unsure of the size you need, please take a moment to read a post about selecting the right size in our buying guide. The sizes listed below are based on nominal measurements.
Leonard's new Mayberry series has already become it's most popular. It features LP SmartSide panel siding, which is by far the best in the industry. It comes with a 50-year warranty and can be stained a beautiful wood look or painted to match your home. Leonard offers this unit in sizes from 8'x12' to 14'x50'. All 10'x16' units come standard with 5' double doors either on the end or sidewall. They also come standard with four foot wide lofts on each end for extra storage. Notice the trim along the bottom of the siding - this is just one of many examples of how Leonard embeds quality into the design as well as the craftsmanship.
This model has been discontinued as a stock unit and replaced with the Mayberry series (see above). Our customers much prefer the Mayberry's LP SmartSide panel siding over the T1-11, which we used to offer. We may have a few of the T1-11 in stock, and in some cases, our factory will accept orders for these type units. All 10 wides feature two large 4' deep lofts (one on each end) and double 30" doors on the end or double 36" doors on the side. You can choose a metal or shingle roof (no upcharge). We also offer the siding in easy to paint Masonite or T1-11 for the stained look.
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 gambrel roof system uses metal plates to bind rafters into place with a high-pressure pneumatic press. The Mayberry features LP SmartSide panel siding. This material is simply the industry best and can be stained or painted to match your home.
LEONARD'S FAMOUS NOTCH SKID FLOOR SYSTEM
The world of pre-assembled and portable storage sheds, the foundation is paramount. Leonard's famous notched skid flooring system has been refined over the years to provide the most rugged and durable floor in the business. 4'x6' pressure treated skids are notched so that the pressure-treated 2'x6' floor joists are squeezed in and cross fastened to avoid twisting or warping. This added step all allows the necessary strength to move the building over its life without doing damage to the structure. The floor is covered with 3/4" engineered flooring that is designed to last longer and not warp.

Russel G. from the Raleigh area recently had us build a barn in his backyard. This was the second barn we have made in his backyard. The first was to house some equipment for a business he operates called Smoked Out 'n Fried catering www.smokedoutnfried.com. The second one (10x16 PENE barn) pictured above, he got to store family furniture after his parents passed away. At first, he considered building an addition to the house, but in the end, he felt a Leonard building with insulation and paneling might work just as well, cost far less, and be fairly easy to get done quickly. There are a lot of ways to solve storage challenges, and we hope Leonard can continue to provide alternatives that make sense for our customers. Thank you, Russel, for sharing your story.
