Have you been considering a backyard shed, but you just don’t like the way most look? Perhaps you find them to be boring, bland, or even downright ugly. Maybe you have a classically designed house, and a basic storage shed just won’t match the current exterior design of your property. What should you do? Well, you can stop worrying about one, because an outdoor gable is perfect for you. This takes the concept of a shed to new heights, all while offering you the kind of craftsman look you’ve been hoping for. So when you need outdoor storage but don’t want to go the same route as everyone else and their sheds, make sure to check out our selection of gables. They’ll completely redefine the concept of outdoor storage.
Chances are your home has an “A” frame. In other words, the roof isn’t flat but instead comes to a point. This gives an “A” look to the portion of the house (you may have several “A” frames within the entire construction of your home. There are several benefits to this particular design. First, a triangle is the strongest architectural shape. It also allows for debris and moisture to roll off the roof of the construction. With a flat, designed roof debris and humidity will remain, which can cause roof damage. Flat roofs are more commonplace in locations where the weather is generally void of rainfall (such as in Arizona and Nevada). However, with the amount of rain and occasional snowfall here in North Carolina, it is vital to direct moisture away from your roof. An “A” frame can do that.
Other shed designs have a flat roof. Flat roofs are easier and quicker to install. This allows the shed to go up faster and saves you money. However, it may lead to future repairs due to moisture absorption, not to mention it’s easier for animals to burrow into your shed through a flat roof and to collect debris from the horizontal design.
The “A” frame gable will more closely match the design of your home. This is one of the main selling points of the gable. It allows homeowners such as yourself to construct the gable, paint it and add whatever details you might want to the exterior as you build the shed in the image of your home. Flat roof sheds will simply never look like part of your house. For many homeowners, this isn’t a concern, but when you want to maintain design conformity, the “A” frame gable is absolutely the way to go.
Beyond the improved structural integrity and design benefits, the roof design of a gable will give you more clearance space. This is perfect if you are a taller individual or if you simply need added height for storage. If you’re turning your gable into a studio space, it is easier to install a skylight or even solar paneling. You simply have more options for your roof.
You should never be forced to conform to your design styles just to increase the storage space in your backyard. At Barnyard Utility Buildings, you’ll never be forced to do that. Here you will find a wide range of design styles. We feature a variety of materials, including wood and composite siding, and a variety of roof, including traditional asphalt shingles and metal roofing.

Perhaps after scrolling through the different examples of gables, you still don’t find something that fits your exact vision. That is where our experienced team of designers comes in.
