The gable style is the most common and popular styles of two-story storage sheds in the market. They come with a traditional roof with an even or unbroken pitch and sloping sections that join to create a triangle. This unique style is common on most properties and is generally used for playhouses, workshops, offices, and backyard sheds.
The quaker-style storage shed is common in the northern part of the country, and what is unique about this style is that the roof is longer at the rear, and shorter at the front, but still manages to hover on the edge of the front wall. It provides a finished look, and it is preferred mainly for its visual aesthetic, instead of the storage space. If you want to increase your property value, then the quaker-style is good.
One of the most common styles of two-story storage sheds is the barn style, which presents an old-school look on your property. Barn sheds are huge and come with a lot of space to store all manners of goods and tools. You can choose between different styles in barn sheds, which include Dutch barns, gambrel, and colonial.
The Dormer style of two-story storage shed comes with a peaked roof, and what makes it unique is that it has a third gable right above the front door. It is also called the Victorian dormer, which features a peak on the front wall, and another short peak near the main peak.
