LP® Outdoor Building Solutions® is proud to be a preferred materials supplier for Supershed LLC. For more than 20 years, Supershed has been providing its customers with top-quality sheds, barns, cabins, garages and other outdoor buildings at a fair price.
Supershed LLC was founded by John Berryman in 1995 as a family-run business and affiliate of Derksen Portable Buildings. The company first focused on serving residents of Middle Tennessee, but quickly expanded. The Supershed name has since become synonymous with quality and affordability. Built in the tradition of Mennonite craftsmanship, Supershed now includes several manufacturing facilities and hundreds of authorized Supershed dealers in cities and towns throughout the Midwest. Its service area covers Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Iowa.
The versatility of LP Outdoor Building Solutions products has contributed to the rising popularity of the Supershed brand. “As the portable building industry trends towards more and more customization, LP products have allowed us to offer our customers a variety of options,” says Marie Berryman, Marketing & Public Relations Director for Supershed. “We offer feature walls and wainscoting in LP® Smartside® Lap Siding, Board and Batten, Cedar Texture Shakes and LP SmartSide Panel Siding. LP® ProStruct® flooring with SmartFinish® has transitioned from being a popular option to being our standard flooring on almost all of our buildings.”
The workability of engineered wood from LP is another major draw for the Supershed team. “LP’s products are consistent, easy to work with and ensure that our warranty repairs are minimized,” explains Berryman.
The team recently constructed a unique project that was featured at the Tulsa State Fair last fall: a not-so-tiny tiny house. Tiny houses are one of Supershed’s specialties. “It featured LP SmartSide and LP ProStruct Flooring with SmartFinish,” says Berryman. “It got a lot of attention.”
The building measured 16 x 40 including the porch. It featured a combined kitchen and living space, a separate bedroom (large enough for a queen bed) and full bath. It also included two lofts (one for sleeping and one for storage), appliances, an HVAC system and plumbing fixtures.

However, whether you’re a new or longtime LP SmartSide Trim & Siding user, taking the time to be attentive to proper installation will ensure you are upholding your product warranty and avoiding potential issues down the road.Continue Reading
Performance is written into everything we do at LP Building Solutions. This goes beyond the way our team members do their jobs, how we manufacture our products and the drive to deliver building solutions. We also watch, measure and steward our environmental performance. Sustainable sourcing and energy efficiency are just two ways we act as stewards of our environmental performance, but recently Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) and LP signed a landmark conservation agreement to support 6.2 million acres in Manitoba’s boreal forest. This agreement is the culmination of an 18-year partnership between the two organizations that was jointly released in January 2020.
The homebuilding industry is always changing, thanks to housing trends, shifts in buyer preferences, new technologies and even finance options. We recently sat down with Brad Southern, CEO of LP Building Solutions, and Mike Sims, LP’s SVP of Marketing and Business Development, to discuss the latest industry developments.
Many construction companies and remodelers have been sorely challenged by the shortage of skilled laborers. As more companies struggle to find good workers and juggle projects, many are thirsty for strategies that promise to trim time.
