5 Sheds Perfect for the Countryside

A countryside shed is the perfect finishing touch for a home in the countryside, and LP® Outdoor Building Solutions® products are the ideal materials to build them with. Phil Baker, owner of Countryside Barns in Eureka, Illinois, uses LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding to help achieve this distinctive look and style. “The trim and panel siding used on LP sheds have a very appealing, traditional woodgrain appearance, which lends well to the Countryside Barns style of sheds. We’ve received many comments from our customers expressing how much they like the aesthetics of our LP sheds,” says Baker.

Exceptional Shelter Against Mother Nature

The qualities of LP Outdoor Building Solutions products create outstanding durability for outdoor structures, whether used to construct a storage building or a shelter for animals. Exterior trim and siding are often subjected to extreme temperatures, moisture and insects. That’s why all LP products feature the exclusive SmartGuard® process, offering four components of protection against termites and fungal decay.

Every LP SmartSide product is treated to the core with an advanced formula of binders, waxes and zinc borate, and then bonded with a water-resistant, resin-saturated overlay. “The LP SmartSide products hold up extremely well against moisture and decay, and is the best option for siding that is durable and has easy maintenance,” says Baker.

Consider LP Outdoor Building Solutions products for the following countryside structures:

  • Chicken coop
  • Greenhouse
  • Large doghouse
  • Cabin
  • Storage shed

“I am very confident in LP sheds as they are built to last and stand up against the elements,” Baker continues.
