Preservation Carpentry students in front of sheds

NBSS Preservation Carpentry students craft hand-built sheds each fall as part of their first-year curriculum, to practice basic construction techniques. You can own one of this year’s sheds!

Here are the details:

  • 10 feet by 12 feet of stick-framed construction.
  • One shed will have a green Vermont slate roof, another a raised seam copper roof, and the third will have red cedar shingles.
  • The siding will be clapboards on the front and cedar shingles on the 3 other elevations.
  • They have 3 windows, one single front door and a gable end double door.
  • Unfinished interior.

Pricing for all shed types is $6,000. Pre-orders or direct purchases are accepted depending on availability. Clients are responsible for moving costs, though we have a shed mover available.

If you have questions that weren’t answered here or would like to discuss or move forward in purchasing a shed, please email our Preservation Carpentry Department Head, Steven O’Shaughnessy, at soshaughnessy@nbss.edu.
