A skillion roofline looks a bit like one half of a standard gable roof, only steeper. It’s a steep pitch on one side ensures easy movement in and out of your shed, and also offers you some extra storage capacity while still remaining small enough for urban environments and suburb homes. The pitch is not only capable of delivering you some head height comfort but also ensures that material like snow, leaf matter and water doesn’t pool on top like you’d find on a flat roofed shed.
Our skillion roof garages and sheds for sale at EasyShed come in a range of sizes and designs to suit every need and space. They arrive as an easy to install kit like flat packed furniture does. Most small sizes can be comfortably constructed by a single person with some handy skills and no movement restrictions.
For larger size sheds like our range of hay sheds, our single, double and triple garages, you may need a hand. Alternatively, there are plenty of handy people who offer to cover your construction for you which may be the easiest path to choose.
If you’re short on space but still looking for sizable storage capacity, skillion garages could be your answer. The skillion roof shed comes with a standard tall door height of 2.1 metres, so if you’re on the tall side then this should be a welcome feature. The roof then slopes down to a height of 1.8 metres at the shortest point which is still quite high and allows for shelving and other storage equipment to help you maximise the space you have available.
Compared to standard truss and gable roof designs, which come with a standard door height of 1.8m, the skillion roof shed offers more flexibility even in its compact dimensions. Available sizes include small enough for a pool pump or up to 3.75 metres wide. That’s a handy size garden shed that’s less than 2 metres deep.
The narrow slider range of skillion roof sheds are available with the pitch reversed and come with a standard sliding door height of 1.8 metres, and then are highest at the back of the shed rather than the front. The newest models are now designed with end access doors rather than in the middle of the widest wall. End entry doors are also 2.1 metres.
Like our off the wall range, the skillion roof shed is designed to maximise your available space without encroaching on it too much. Skillion garages can be used to store everything from tools, kids’ summer toys and equipment, bikes and be used as garden sheds for potting and gardening equipment. They can fit in narrow spaces so you don’t waste any of your yards, or you can put them in out of the way corners. They can supplement your existing storage, making it easier to get at the things you’re most likely to use more often, or you can set yourself up a narrow workshop to create, build, sew, paint, anything you want. They’re pitched roofs mean that when the doors are open, you should get plenty of natural light.
