'The Game Day Shed' Featured in July/August Issue of The Family Handyman Magazine

The second annual shed issue of The Family Handyman (July/August 2018), produced in partnership with LP, again featured familiar names from LP’s lineup of innovative shed products. Several LP® Outdoor Building Solutions® products were used to build the Game Day Shed, a modern, wide-open design that creates the ultimate space to watch your favorite sports.

Featured Products Used to Construct the Game Day Shed

  • LP® ProStruct® Roof Sheathing with SilverTech®The reflective SilverTech finish on this roof sheathing brightens the shed’s interior while reducing heat  in the panel from emitting into the shed. In addition, its professional-grade finish resists peeling and flaking.
  • LP® ProStruct® Flooring with SmartFinish®. These floor panels come prefinished on one side with a tough, textured overlay that results in a great-looking shed floor. It resists fungal decay, termite damage, warping, splitting and cracking.
  • LP® SmartSide® Panel Siding. This engineered wood siding product includes the innovative, four-component SmartGuard® manufacturing process for strength and resistance against fungal decay and termites. The Game Day Shed used a combination of grooved and ungrooved Cedar Texture siding panels.
  • LP® SmartSide® Trim & Fascia. LP SmartSide Trim & Fascia are the perfect accent to any  siding. They’re also made with the proprietary SmartGuard manufacturing process for resistance to termites and fungal decay.

All LP siding and trim products come pre-primed. Because the ceiling panels, siding panels, beams and wide band were finish coated before installation, there was very little painting left to do after construction of the Game Day Shed was done.
