JAMAICA, Vt., Nov. 3 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — For a limited time Jamaica Cottage Shop, Inc. is offering a free set of step by step plans for an 8×10 post and beam shed to anyone who signs up for the Funky Chicken Newsletter. The offer can be found on the website and the wooden cottage plans are made available for immediate download after the subscription is confirmed.
One of Jamaica Cottage Shop, Inc.’s most popular designs, the 8×10 Vermonter is a standard wooden utility shed. The rugged post and beam timber framing is built on 4×6 hemlock skids. The northern white pine siding and green metal roofing make this building naturally weather and insect resistant. The local rough sawn lumber called for in these plans is full dimensioned and makes the structure withstand the heaviest of snow loads. The large five foot double doors with heavy duty black hardware are complimented by a treated ramp to make for easy access. The standard wooden storage shed makes a great tool shed or garden potting area.
Jamaica Cottage Shop, Inc. has engineered the plans to be geared towards a back yard do it yourself homeowner. While the shed plans are not blue print in style, the trigonometry of the roof triangles has been simplified with the inclusion of rafter templates that are traced to obtain the perfect angle. These post and beam shed plans are set up so a professional contractor or a homeowner can follow in an easy to understand format. The part numbered cut list coincides with a color coded exploded view. Everything from site preparation instructions and pier schematics to roofing installation is clearly outlined in the plans providing a beginner carpenter with the knowledge of how to build a post and beam shed.
The Company’s newsletter, The Funky Chicken, is an e-mail publication that periodically announces the latest designs, promotions and events. Many of the company’s specials are for a limited number of items and offered on a first come first serve basis. For this reason, “signing up for the Funky Chicken is the best way to be notified of upcoming promotions on our post and beam shed kits” says the Company’s owner, Domenic Mangano.
