When choosing new board and batten sheds for your backyard or general outdoor storage needs, it is very important to choose one that is well-built and will last a long time (a shed should last around 15 to 20 years). There are many options to choose from, but one of the best can be found right here in the U.S.A without resorting to a building manufactured overseas. Amish furniture first gained national attention in the 1920s when art dealers “discovered” these simple but beautiful pieces of furniture and buildings and began to promote them. Choosing Amish made outdoor furniture supports local craftsmen and ensures a quality product. Here are three reasons why you should choose an Amish built shed for your backyard.
-Hand-crafted pieces: All Amish furniture is 100% hand-crafted, as the Amish eschew technology in favor of working with their hands. This means that each piece is put together with care and precision and is guaranteed to last a long time (the Amish strongly believe in creating buildings and furniture that will last generations). Amish built sheds are durable, unique, and can also be built with custom designs that can fit your needs.
-Quality wood selections: Most Amish furniture and buildings are made from five kinds of wood: oak, cherry, hickory, walnut, and maple. These are all durable woods that are known for their ability to resist scratching, warping and their unique colors. The exact wood selection will vary by region, but it will come from one of these five choices (if not a combination of several types). The result will be board and batten sheds that will withstand the elements (depending on where you live) for many years to come.
-Worth the wait: Because all Amish furniture is hand-crafted, there is going to be a slightly longer wait for the building (or furniture items) to be assembled and shipped. On the average, it takes around eight weeks for custom Amish furniture to be built. This might seem like a long time, but when you’re receiving quality board and batten sheds that will last for many years, it is definitely worth the wait.
In conclusion, when looking for a new shed for your backyard, you should choose an Amish built shed. Amish built furniture is 100% hand-crafted, features colorful, durable woods that will last for a long time, and is a quality product well worth the time it takes to be built.
