Lancaster Barns Shed Designer Tool Features

Before taking our design tool for a spin, be sure to check out all the available features below so you don’t miss a thing as you virtually bring your custom shed to life!

Shed Style

Step one in designing your shed is to select your shed style. There are 14 styles to pick from, and for many of the styles, you have the option of choosing a particular exterior look such as Economy, Standard, or Classic.


Choosing your shed size will include selecting the length and width of your shed as well as sidewall height. You can see the starting price for each shed size before selecting it, so you’ll have a good idea of a baseline cost before adding any additional shed features. 

Siding and Color

Create your unique shed style by selecting your siding and colors! Siding styles can include painted T1-11, vinyl, board & batten, or metal (depending on the shed style you choose in step one).

We offer a variety of popular and time-tested colors for your walls and trim. Light or dark gray, clay, sage, hunter green, barn red, and blue are just a few of the unique colors we offer in addition to more traditional colors. Custom colors are also available for walls or trim.

Roofs, Doors, and Windows

The next few steps of your shed design experience include choosing your roof option, roof material, door features (lots to choose from!), and windows. 


Floor options will vary depending on the shed style you choose. Examples of optional features may include 5/8” pressure-treated floors, heavy-duty 12” floors on center floor joists, and spray foam floor insulation. 

Interior and Exterior Options

The final steps to designing your shed include selecting your interior and exterior options. Need shelves or a workbench? Just pick your size and quantity and drop them into your design.

There are many exterior options to choose from when designing your shed. Depending on your selected shed style, they include flower boxes, vinyl or wood shutters, decorative garden hinge for doors, vents, sub-roofing options, cupolas, and ramps.
