Salt Box Shed, 14 x 20 Custom
I want to show you an interesting Salt Box project that we built recently near Cheyenne Wy.
This custom shed had to be built on-site because it was impossible to get a loaded trailer to the shed site. We started out by carrying all of our tools, lumber and supplies up a big hill and laying out everything on the ground in a semi-organized manner. With several of us working together we soon had The walls and trusses set. Our customer wanted her Salt box Shed to have plenty of lighting, so we installed fifteen windows in it. They are currently using it for storage, with future dreams of turning it into a studio. I love it, it is functional, fits the landscape and looks beautiful.
Have you ever wondered why this style of shed is called a salt box? The name came from the style that resembles a salt box house with a long, pitched roof that slopes down to the back, generally a wooden frame house. A salt box has just one story in the back and two stories in the front. The flat front and central chimney are recognizable features, but the asymmetry of the unequal sides and the long, low rear roof line are the most distinctive features of a salt box, which takes its name from its resemblance to a wooden lidded box in which salt was once kept.
