LP Shed Products Featured in July/August Issue of The Family Handyman Magazine

The annual shed issue of The Family Handyman (July/August 2017) features some familiar names from LP’s lineup of innovative shed products. Several LP® Outdoor Building Solutions® products were used to build the Double-Duty Pub Shed, a multipurpose structure which offers tons of storage plus a shaded patio and bar with plenty of seating and counter space for entertaining.

Featured Products Used to Construct the Pub Shed

  • LP ProStruct® Floor with SmartFinish®. These tongue-and-groove floor panels come prefinished on one side with a tough, textured overlay that results in a great-looking, durable shed floor. They resist fungal decay, termite damage, warping, splitting and cracking.
  • LP ProStruct Roof Sheathing with SilverTech®. The reflective SilverTech finish on this roof sheathing brightens the shed’s interior while reducing heat buildup. In addition, its professional-grade finish resists peeling and flaking.
  • 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 pub shed used Cedar Texture siding panels, but grooved versions are also available. The panels come in different thicknesses as well as your choice of shiplap or square edges.
  • LP SmartSide Trim and Fascia. LP SmartSide Trim and Fascia are the perfect accent to any substrate. 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. The Double-Duty Pub Shed was finished with two coats of top-quality acrylic exterior paint on the trim and siding.
