Utility Shed – Project of the Month

by Karen Knapstein

Mt. Juliet, Tennessee

The Barn Store, a division of Three Boys Consulting, LLC, of Gallatin, Tennessee, built this classic red post-frame shed in Mt. Juliet. Two enclosed lean-to sheds with large door openings create extra storage, making the building more versatile for the owner.

The main building and the sheds are fully insulated with Double-Bubble foil and vinyl insulation. GSCB
