Some of ’em just make you stand back and say “Wow”! This is definitely one of those projects. The size is basic – 30′ x 40′ – but then ‘basic’ leaves the building and ‘wonder & awe’ enter in. Of course the biG show stopper on this one is the siding. At first glance it comes across as metal, but a closer look reveals its true nature which is Vinyl Board & Batten. Vinyl based siding products are typically installed over 7/16″ OSB and house wrap and this beauty is no exception to that rule.
The customer wanted a Below Eave Lean To attached to be used as a recreational / sitting area. To keep the aesthetic appeal of the gable end overhangs, we set the end posts of the lean to in a foot and returned the gable overhangs into the eave wall to provide a really neat, clean look. 27 gauge Black steel roofing rests comfortably over 1/4″ Solex insulation which in turn provides a cool, dry environment for the inside of the building. We also poured a 5″ Concrete floor in the building along with the adjoining aprons. Black windows and overhead doors round out the minor details that make this building a major accomplishment!
