As Virginia Beach shed builders, our Cape Cod Shed, named for its resemblance to the cape cod style homes, features a beautiful 7/12 pitch and 6-inch gable soffit overhangs. The extra pitch allows for more loft storage than the standard A-Roof Shed’s 5/12 roof pitch. We like to think of the Cape Cod Shed as a fancier version of the A-Roof Shed with some added functionality and storage space. Like the A-Roof barn shed its uses are very versatile. We’ve seen customers use it for vehicle storage, as a garden shed, an office, she shed, and even a man cave.
This shed is very popular because it best marries style and function. The roof height allows you to add loft space giving the shed more functionality while the outside of the shed with the gable soffit overhangs compliments any property in any neighborhood.
The Cape Cod design style is available in widths of 8’, 9.5’, 10’, 12’, 14’, and 16’ and lengths from 8’ to 44’.
It features a solid 7/12 pitch roof and up to 8’ walls. It also includes 6-inch gable soffit overhangs.
Some of the more popular add-on features for the Cape Cod Shed are a permanent foundation to prevent settling and any long-term foundation issues, extra windows for more light and airflow, a ramp at the door so that you can easily move big items in and out, lofts for long term storage of items, custom doors, cupola’s and weathervanes for a personalized look, and – the most popular – shelving and workbenches for instant usability.
Anytime it’s in your best interest to build your shed on site – we do it! So, if we can’t get a trailer to where you want to put your shed, if your shed is wider than 9.5’ or longer than 20’, or if your shed needs to be placed on a sloped grade more than 8” across the building – we build your shed there on your property.
We use solid concrete blocks and construction grade pressure treated shims to level buildings less than 256 sq ft built on level ground. We use a concrete pier foundation for buildings greater than 256 sq ft or ones that are located on a sloped grade.
Engineer certified to withstand 115 MPH winds and up to 130 MPH winds if your area requires it.
2×6 rafters 24 in. on center with 1/2″ OSB sheeting, tar paper, a ridge vent, and 3 tab or architectural asphalt shingles *16” on center for 16’ wide buildings.
For wood buildings, we use matching Duratemp or Pressure Treated T1-11 doors. For all other sidings, we use non-pre-hung primed fiberglass doors.
2×4 studs 16 in. on center with OSB sheathing. Duratemp and pressure-treated T1-11 buildings have no additional sheathing.
Vertical slider windows with screens and exterior window trim.
2×4 pressure-treated floor joists 16 in. on center with 3/4″ plywood over 4×4 pressure-treated runners (8’, 9.5’, and 10’ wide) or 4x6 pressure-treated runners (12’, 14’ and 16’ wide). Runners are a maximum of 6’ on center.
For wood building, we use pressure treated wood trim. For all other exteriors, we wrap soffits in white coil stock and use vinyl trim around windows and building corners.
Because every shed is built custom for you there are endless opportunities to make this structure your own. If requested, we can even increase the building's structural load. Consider the following to make your shed fit your needs.
Even if your building is not 256 Sq Ft or on a sloped grade, you can opt for a permanent foundation to enhance the structural integrity of your building. Plus! You do not pay sales tax on your purchase.
Cupolas and weathervanes give your outdoor building a unique look.
Add additional doors or windows to change the functionality or bring in more light. We can even use home-grade entry doors or insulated windows.
Opt for a vinyl, shake, beaded, or Hardie Plank siding that matches or compliments your home or complies with HOA restrictions. We can even special order a specific brand to perfectly match your home.
Add a ramp to make it easy to get large or heavy items in and out. Makes storing your rider mower or motorcycle that much easier!
Opt for 2X6 pressure-treated floor joists to increase the load of your floor.
Add lofts, shelving or workbenches to help your shed instantly fit your needs from the moment it's built.
Choose all pressure-treated walls and flood vents to ensure your building stands for years to come in areas prone to heavy flooding. In some areas, this is required to comply with flood zone requirements.
