The Shed Center builds all the standard shed styles and specializes in custom builds as much as possible. A few years ago, manager Joe Gish decided to build a few small caboose sheds. Although many customers liked the looks, only a few sold. In essence, they were a successful failure, so last year, he drew up plans for a more actual size caboose to finish out as an office and transport it around to home shows, fairs, and events as an attraction. They call it “Cubby” and it is 10’x30′. The bar/desk was made to simulate a locomotive. The interior walls are cedar slats (368) attached to painted plywood. In the corner of the living room is a Vermont Castings “Aspen” wood stove and Tenedos “California Gold” wall stone. It’s fun to see the kids drag their parents into the caboose when the parents would probably have never given a shed display a second look.
