Tuff Shed Upgrades and Options

Tuff Shed Upgrades and Options

It depends on what shed you get, but you don’t get much before the options. Basically, you get a box with one door to get into it. No windows.

Tuff Shed buildings are unfinished inside.

Shelves and Workbenches are options

There is no real option available to finish it inside. You can have them add shelves, pegboard and a workbench. Anything else is up to you.

If your shed is 2-story, it comes with stairs to get to the second floor.

The stairs may have a bend with a landing or go straight up.

Everything else is optional.

Optional Upgrades

The Tuff Shed brochure lists a lot of available upgrades. Not all upgrades are available on all sheds. And the website makes it clear that there are a lot more options than the list on the brochure.

The little barn in the photo is a Sundance Series TB-700 with double doors and custom doors in the upper gables. The barn is 12′ × 20′. They also added windows.

That’s it. No windows are included in the base price.

This is a 10′ × 12′ Sundance Series TRS-800. On the front it has double doors with in-door transom windows, decorative door trim and the optional black hardware. They also added three transom windows and a dormer roof to let in a lot of light.

The design is called a Salt Box, named after Colonial New England Salt Box homes. A Salt Box house is two stories in front, one in back, with a single sloping roof. This garden shed has the same sloping roof line. 

The Tuff Shed website says that most buildings are upgraded. Most people don’t want a box with a door. Shocker.

Because of our unique process and manufacturing, most Tuff Shed buildings have been upgraded, customized or accessorized by the time they are installed on a customer’s site. In fact, there’s almost nothing that we can’t modify about our products to meet the customer’s needs…

Whatever the project, we’ll start with quality in mind, then add your imagination and unique project requirements to come up with the building that’s right for you.

Our Classic Manor New Day Cabin
Our Classic Manor New Day Cabin

Our Classic Manor New Day Cabin has 8 windows that open, double glass doors, the porch, vents on both ends and a roof vent that runs the whole roof. Then we finished it ourselves with insulation, drywall, flooring, power, gas, AC and gas heat, phone lines, coax and ethernet. Later we added under the floor insulation and skirted it with Hardee board.
