Important Note: Sizes are represented as "Nominal Measurements" across the entire industry — meaning they are not exact. Example: a 2x4 board is not exactly 2"x4," but the reference is useful and simple. In the same way, a 10x12 shed in one model may only have an interior footprint of 9'-2"x 11'-2" while another maybe 9'-10" x 11'-10". This is due to several factors. The outside dimensions from the Department of Transportation's point of view is from tip to tip; therefore, if your shed has an overhang or boxed-eave, the outside edge is driving the dimensional constraint. Also, the thickness of the exterior wall varies depending on siding and frame material. Be sure to contact a specialist before you make your final decision so we can provide better specifications for your project.
This will also help you assess your loft, workbench or shelving needs whether you get it from the factory or add it yourself later.
How will the building be brought in? What will fit through, or will it need to be built on-site? We have some pretty crazy stories of obstacle courses we’ve delivered our buildings through. Our delivery specialists are incredible, but even they have limits. It’s very important to think through exactly how the building will arrive at its final destination. Yes, your beautiful privacy fence with narrow gated entrances may require that your building be built on-site.
For fully assembled shed deliveries, the DOT (Department of Transportation) restricts the width to 14’, length to 50’, and the height to 14’-2” in most places. The height restriction often affects the pitch of the roof as this height includes the distance from the ground to the bed of the truck. Also, units wider than 12 feet require us to provide a driving escort in most areas. Leonard offers a built-on-site program that may better suit your needs.
