12×16 Storage Barn — My Shed Story Winner 2016

Every shed has a story. Even yours!

A 12×16 Storage Barn took 1st place this year … complete with a “smashing” set of photos (see pic’s below, and this will all make sense!)

We hosted a contest, and invited our clients to submit their shed stories. We got a bunch of interesting responses, and 3 winners. For the winning entries, our criteria were pretty simple: We were looking for a confirmed Byler shed, an interesting story, and photos that helped to tell the story. And now, our congratulations to …

  • 3rd Place — $50 — Lynette Rambo
  • 2nd Place — $50 — Robin Fridley
  • 1st Place — $100 — David Kanode

In this post, we’ll feature the first place story and photos. But expect to see the others around on our website. Next time, your story could be the winner!
My story began on a dark and stormy night. A huge pine tree blew over, landing on my shed. That is when I became in need of a storage barn.

I looked at five different builders, in Virginia and West Virginia. The price of the Byler Barns were very compatible, not the most or not the least. The quality of the materials and the craftsmanship were what sold me on my Byler Barn. Everyone I talked to was very helpful and the whole deal went very smooth from ordering to delivery.

I decided to add a loft on both ends up top and add a workbench on one end and shelves on the other. I then put pegboard on the side wall and behind the workbench.

I am very satisfied with my barn and I recommend to everyone to check out Byler Barns .

Thank you, David Kanode

The gambrel (half-octagon) roof is what gives this 12×16 Storage Barn it’s distinctive “barny” appearance.

David has done a beautiful job of organizing! Shelves and loft add an immense amount of “floor space” without needing a bigger building.

A high-wall shed allows you to store long implements like rakes and shovels on the wall–and still have plenty of room for lofts and overhead storage.

A work bench is another way of maximizing “floor space.” You still have storage underneath, but you get working space at a height optimal for actually working on stuff.

The lattice work under the barn fills in the gaps, but allows plenty of ventilation to keep things dry underneath.

Destroyed Shed by Fallen Pine Tree

The infamous pine tree that started this whole process. That shed didn’t fare too well … we hope for better luck for the new one!
