This shed design is designed to match the roof frame of most modern-day home roof lines, named for the shape of its roofline with no gables, this shed has 6” soffits all around the building. The hip roof follows a 5/12 pitch on all sides.
The roofline comes to a point when built with symmetrical width and length. When built with non-symmetrical width and lengths, this barn shed features a ridgeline. Why does the roofline matter? Hip roof sheds are very sturdy structures. Because of the roof’s geometry, they are not affected by wind and elements as much as other roof designs.
Many people pick this style to match their more modern designed homes and are best suited for playhouses and even pool houses.
You can customize your hip roof shed plans or designs to meet your needs, have fun getting creative and ask our designers about your options! If your property is planning a fort for the kids, pool storage, or that dream playhouse these sheds are a terrific choice!
The hip roof shed comes with one entryway and a window included. You’ll be able to choose the placement of both. You can add more windows or doors for additional light, airflow, and access.
