8'x10' Potting Shed/ Pool Equipment Cover

This custom shed was designed to complement a a 1920s jerkinhead-roofed Florida bungalow with Craftsman and Tudor influences. The owners were exploring ideas to hide a pool pump in the backyard. They decided that our shed styles were the perfect solution for maintaining the historic look of their property, gaining useful space for gardening, and hiding the pool pump.
