6x8 gable bike shed

Shed overview

 

The 6’x8’ Extra Commfy bike shed is built with quality construction materials like plywood, pressure-treated lumber, wood siding, asphalt single, and heavy-duty doors to keep bicycles secure. The gable roof design sheds water and snow and adds superior strength to the structure. The windowless design adds more security and two louvered vents in the gable ends provide fresh air. The XTR bike shed can be stained or painted to match a home’s exterior, and a variety of asphalt shingles can also be used. The XTR 400 is a perfect bike shed for expensive and high-end bikes, and the double doors allow for lots of room to maneuver bicycles inside the 48 sq. ft. This shed is adequate for any weather environment, and it’s built on a solid foundation of concrete and mortared-bricks. Depending on how the interior of the Extra Comfy is laid out, it has the capability of storing 6-8 bicycles.

FAQs & Answers

 

1. Do I need a permit?

A: In most local townships and municipalities, if a shed is less than 100sqft, you do not need a permit. For sheds more than 100sqft, it’s always best to go to your local town office and inquire about a building permit. 

2. How much it would cost me to build?

A: According to most building cost estimator programs, the average cost for materials to build a shed is about $22.85 per square foot. For example, an 8’x10’ shed equals 80sqft x $22.85 = $1,828.00.  

3. How much time will I need to build it?

A: The size of the shed plays a role in how long it will take to build it. An average 8’x10’ shed can be built in 3 to 4 days from start to finish.  

4. Can I use my bike shed as a repair shop?

A: Your bike shed can be made into the perfect repair shop by adding electrical power and a workbench. The double doors allow for more lighting and ease of access. A bike stand can be mounted in the center of the floor, making this an all-in-one repair shop. 

5. Will the bike shed keep my expensive bikes safe

A: The windowless design and solid construction will keep high-end and expensive bicycles safe. The double doors are built with pressure-treated lumber and wood siding, and they use heavy-duty hardware with locking handles. For more protection, there are also a variety of exterior locking hardware applications available at your local home improvement store that can be easily installed on your bike shed.
