Finger Jointed Bevel Cedar Siding (Wall Siding Standard With Shed)
What is Finger Jointed Bevel Cedar Siding?Finger jointed bevel siding (wall cladding), is lumber made from high grade short pieces of cedar, joined together to make longer pieces of wall siding. The joints fit together like interlacing fingers that are glued together.
Environmental Message:The use of finger jointing by our forest industry is good for our environment. It enhances the recovery from our natural resources by allowing the use of small pieces of lumber.
These would otherwise be put into landfill or into significantly less valued uses.
Quality and Value:Finger jointed cedar enables the use of beautiful Western Red Cedar siding, at a fraction of the cost of non- finger jointed lumber.
The finger jointing process has evolved over the years, with this lumber having the added benefit of enhanced stability for use by our valued customers.
Staining and Painting:Cedar is desired for its aesthetic qualities. Its natural beauty has a wide range of color variations. (blonde, to earthy red, to brown).
As these finger jointed boards are made up of small pieces joined together, you will see a mix of colors in one piece of siding.
These natural colors, and the architectural look of the finger joints, may be enhanced with a variety of clear stains; or given a more uniform look with solid or semi-solid colored stains.
We hope you enjoy this option!
Architect Knotty® Cedar Siding (Wall Siding Upgrade For Shed)
Architect Knotty siding (wall cladding) are solid pieces of cut to length lumber that contains no open characteristics or through defects that are glued together.
Environmental Message:Due to our shed designs, we utilize shorter lengths of siding that home builders have difficulty using in typical house construction.
Due to the increase in demand for this length of siding, more and more siding is being utilized in our sheds and not ending up being wasted.
Quality and Value:Grading Architect Knotty siding for your shed consists of examining each piece of siding prior to assembling the shed wall to make sure it has the best appearance and strength at time of manufacturing.
Our knotty siding has a warmth and casual charm and is ideal for garden sheds with it’s rustic appearance.
Staining and Painting:Architect Knotty® Cedar Siding is particularly well suited for staining or priming/painting.
During our siding manufacturing process, the exposed piece of siding receives a saw textured face. Due to the increase in exposed wood fibers, more stain will be absorbed and add to the durability and longevity of you shed.
Plywood Roof System
Plywood Roof System: When you add a shed to our shopping cart the price will default to a Standard Plywood System. ½” thick plywood will be cut to size to fit properly on your rafters overhanging on front, rear and sides. Fasteners are included to secure plywood to roof rafters. You will need to purchase, at your own expense, the type of roofing material suitable – such as asphalt, metal, slate or solar.
More Cost Efficient, Able To Satisfy Possible Building Department By-Laws
Metal Roof System
Metal Roof System: If you have decided on our Metal Roofing System, the following materials will be included with your shed kit:
1x4 Western Red Cedar Roof Battens (Cut To Length)
26 Gauge Drip Caps
26 Gauge Galvalume Roof Panels
26 Gauge Ridge Caps
All Necessary Hardware To Attach The Roofing System Correctly
Metal roofs are designed to attach to roof battens. Battens are supplied and cut to fit so no dangerous and time consuming cutting will be required. Once battens are attached, install the Galvalume drip caps to front and rear facia. ‘Galvalume’ is similar to galvanized steel and is a hot-dip process. Instead of using 100% zinc as in a galvanized roof, the dip is 55% aluminum, 43.5% zinc and 1.5% silicon, providing additional weathering protection.
Zinc Bonds With The Steel Surface To Create A Barrier For Corrosion-Causing Moisture
Aluminum Naturally Resists Corrosion And Reflects Heat
Silicon Enhances The Adhesion Of The Coating, Keeping It In Place When The Steel Is Rolled, Stamped Or Bent
Simply lift and secure precut Galvalume Roof Panels onto battens and secure with included self tapping screws. Galvalume weighs 100 to 150 pounds per 100 square feet and contains about 35% recycled steel post-consumer content.
To complete, place Galvalume Ridge Cap on the apex of the shed and secure with supplied fasteners.
Western Red Cedar Shingle Roof System

Western Red Cedar Shingle Panels. Cedar Shingles Will Be Already Attached To The ½” Plywood Roof Sheathing. Roofing Paper Will Be Included Between Plywood And Shingles To Prevent Water Penetration
Seam Filler Shingles – Our Proprietary Designed Filler Shingles Are Included To Be Attached To Roof Panels To Create A Seamless And Tight Roof
Western Red Cedar Roof Ridge Caps
All Necessary Hardware To Attach The Roofing System Correctly

To complete, position roof ridge caps on roof apex and attach with supplied fasteners.

The shed looks great in person. It took longer than a day to or two put it together but overall, it was a good experience. Can't say enough how much I love it, it's everything described and more. Planning on adding electrical in it soon, though it's not required, just my choice. Recommended!

Great customer service and good price!!
Bought a cedar shed kit. The customer service was great and we got a great price on the shed. Very happy with our purchase!
So far, we have nothing but love for this set! Delivery was great. Assembly was quite a chore, but that's to be expected for something big like this. Everything is sturdy and reliable. This product is absolutely perfect for our children. Everywhere you look, there is something for them to do. They will be able to play with it for years.
Loaded with fun things to do. We looked at a few playsets before settling on this one. It came well packaged and the instructions are very easy to understand. Took us about 12 hours to build with breaks in between. I’m sure our children and their friends will have loads of fun. Definitely recommended!
Great set. My kiddos wanted a set that included monkey bars, so I opted for this one. It was very easy to put together. The instructions were almost oversimplified, breaking down every single step. Would definitely recommend.
I love this shed! The cedar smells so good! It fits great where I wanted it on my back patio and holds all the tools and gardening supplies I need. So nice to get all this out of my garage and put in an ideal location. This was packed very well and arrived on time.
Pretty good shed for the money. The instructions were alright. I'm pretty handy so I was able to build it without any problems. It took me about 3 1/2 hours by myself. I would suggest getting some help.
Overall I give this product high 5 stars for its ease of assembly. While the directions are typical in their vagueness, if you take your time and assume nothing, the installation should go smoothly. I built this over three days by myself, with occasional help (holding a panel) from my teenage daughter.
We received our 10x14 Riverside and are impressed with the quality of it and instruction manuals. With the help of my wife and two teenagers, took us about a day and a half to put together. The quality of wood for the shed is excellent and everything assembled easily. Our shed looks like a tiny house and is definitely a great addition to our backyard.
Received it awhile back, and the packaging kept it nice and safe. It arrived with no blemishes, and the product itself looks gorgeous. Setup was done in less than 15 minutes, and the fire was strong on max. The lava rocks that it comes with match the fire pit very well. Looking forward to using this specially during winter!
It was easy to assemble and the doors fit really well. The size was as indicated on the website and the manual was fairly easy to understand. It took me and a friend a few hours to build but it was worth it.
