Shed Builders Harrisonburg VA

Top Shed Builders in Harrisonburg, VA

Every year, we at Byler Barns and Backyards of Harrisonburg consult with over 3000 people in the Central Virginia area. These people are curious about all their shed options, so they will often shamelessly ask us about "the other guys." That may sound strange, but the question comes up all the time.

Here's the deal. We know that we are not the best fit for everybody. We aim to be completely up front about every aspect of our shed company and our business, and see no reason why we shouldn't be blatantly honest about our competitors as well. There are actually only two other shed companies in the Harrisonburg area that build their own sheds, and they are...

Why Byler may NOT be a Good Fit for You

YOU know it, and WE know it, and WE know that YOU know it--a Byler Barns shed isn't the right shed for EVERYONE out there. There's no such thing as the right shed for everyone.

So since you're already wondering whether a Byler Barns shed is the right shed for you, we thought we'd help you figure out who it isn't right for.

Amish sheds--one whimsical example

What in the Name of Sanity are Amish Sheds?

I have never seen an Amish shed. It's not because I'm sheltered, or hostile, or Buddhist, or atheist. Come to think of it, I don't even know what an Amish shed is. In fact, I don't really think there is such a thing as an Amish shed.

Disclaimer: Byler Barns orders some buildings from the Lancaster, PA area. Those sheds are built to our specifications. Some of the craftsmen who build the sheds are Amish. The craftsmen are Amish. The sheds are not.

Wedding--Happy Bride & Groom

How Getting a Shed is like Getting Married

Buying a storage building is a little getting married. The big day is coming, and you stress all the details that go with the perfect wedding.... What you're probably giving less thought to is the fact that after a wedding comes a marriage, and a great marriage takes some maintenance.

Just like a great shed.

Shed buying wisdom starts by knowing what work your shed will be needing a few years down the road. Before you "tie the knot" with a shed builder, be sure you know what services you'll need to keep your storage building in top condition in the future.

Shed Site Prep

3 Ways To Make Shed Site Preparation A Royal Pain

Shed site preparation is like getting a new king. It can be a boon for the whole kingdom. Or, it can be a royal pain in your backside. There are three fairly simple ways to make sure that you have a really lousy experience with your shed site preparation.
1. Choose a poor location for your shed site.
2. Forget to check with your HOA or city/county offices about setback. Because then, you may get to do site prep twice.
3. Don't do your shed company homework. Because then, you may get to do all the heavy work yourself.
