Uses & Features of the High Barn Style Shed

Here at Dakota Storage Buildings, we offer a few different types of storage buildings. In this post, we’ll talk about the High Barn Style Shed, and what it has to offer.


The High Barn Style Shed has timeless styling and advanced functionality. Its added roofline and loft storage allows for convenient, out-of-the-way storage options. The higher walls and roof line in these sheds allow for some unique features. Here are three options of shed uses...


Loft Space

The ability to create loft space is a unique shed feature. What you do with that shed loft space is totally up to you! Storing seasonal items in loft space can help keep the rest of your shed clutter free and better organized, yet high storage space is still very accessible. If you are turning your shed into a kid playhouse, the loft adds an extra fun touch for all children (and adults). Some people have even turned their loft space into a quiet, relaxation area where they can nap or read away from the chaos of the rest of the house.


High Barn Style Sheds also make great outdoor workshops. You can escape to the backyard and complete projects without distraction or worrying about the mess. It will save you time and effort when you have all of your supplies and tools in one place. The higher storage options also allow you keep things out of your ground floor workspace.

Office Space

If you are running a small business, you should consider creating and outdoor office shed. It can be difficult to work from home but renting office space is very expensive. Instead, you can create your own, separate office space in your backyard. You can’t beat the commute, & you will be much more productive working in an environment created just for your small business away from the rest of the house. Set up your workstation however it will work best for you, & you could even add a nap area up in a loft to help get through long days.
