Ranch style backyard buildings are A-frame sheds with the primary door located on the side (typically the longest dimension and always the wall running parallel with the roof ridge). Ranches are suited well when a front facing window is desired and work well with partial porch configurations. Often ranches are used as part of a backyard privacy strategy positioning the long side so that it separates you from a neighbor. View Pricing Now
What makes a Leonard Ranch better than the rest?
- Leonard has been building sheds for over 50 years — we are the shed experts.
- You are buying directly from the factory. There is no middle man adding unnecessary cost, and you customize your order to create the cottage that is perfect for you.
- All ranches are built using Leonard's famous Notched Skid Floor System™
- The walls are constructed with traditional 2"x4" studs on 16" centers with bottom and top plates — just like your house. Many competitors space studs 24" apart.
- The roof rafters are pre-jigged at the plant with high pressure steel press plates on both sides.
- Our ranches have higher roof pitches than most in the industry. This not only makes the buildings more visually pleasing, it also means you have more space inside and the steeper pitch will allow a longer life for the roof.
- We offer several roofs options: asphalt shingle, architectual shingle, and metal.
- Our ranches are available with wood, metal, or vinyl siding. You can choose from thousands of Sherwin Williams paint colors, natural wood stains, dozens of vinyl colors, or several color options in metal.
