What Is The Difference Between a Shed and a Barn?

When building a new shed, one of the first decisions you’ll need to decide on is what kind of material you would like to build it from. There are many decisions to choose from, but two of the most common are steel and wood. Steel and wood come with several unique benefits. Before you start working on your project, it is important to understand the difference between steel and wood so you can make a decision on what is best for your specific needs.

Wood Sheds

Wood possesses a rustic, organic look that can’t be replicated. While there are composite build materials designed to come close, there’s just nothing like the real thing. It is incredibly attractive and one of the easiest materials to paint if you ever want to change the aesthetic! 

At Barnyard, we offer two types of “classic” wood construction buildings, wooden gables and wooden mini barns. Our wood sheds are built from the ground up, so we start with a solid foundation and use pressure-treated lumber that is resistant to pests and decay, to construct our wood sheds. From there, we offer 4 exteriors, LP wood siding, LP Wood Siding ( With Silvertec interior lining, vinyl siding, and Fiber Cement siding also; all of these are very sturdy and durable. To finish these sheds, we use a traditional primed wood trim and use traditional 3-tab 25-year singles. Talk about quality!

If you are looking for a high-quality, wood-construction building or shed, Barnyard has what you need.

Steel Buildings

Steel Buildings are durable and can be used in various ways. Whether you are looking for a carport to protect your car, boat, or camper, or you need additional storage to store your lawn mower or tractor, etc., steel buildings and carports are good for any property.  

Like our wood sheds, our steel buildings are designed specifically for your needs and built on your property. There are multiple options to choose from, including doors, windows, open and enclosed sides, and many height options. We also offer a variety of sizes ranging from a 12’x21′ up to a 60’x100′. 

Don’t forget, unlike other materials, steel buildings are inorganic and thus are resistant to termites. Pair that with easy maintenance, and your steel building can last you a lifetime.
