outdoor living

The key to creating an outdoor space that you’ll want to use all the time—by day and night, in all kinds of weather—is a sturdy, attractive little structure to serve as your home-close-to-home. At its most basic, a shed provides shelter, storage, work surfaces, and seating; beyond that, you can customize it to suit your interests.

Whether you decide to create a chic, comfy “she shed,” an awesome adjunct to your grill, a well-equipped workshop, or a playhouse for the kids, it’s important to start with a shed that’s soundly built of top-quality materials and sits on a solid foundation. Look to LP® Outdoor Building Solutions® for the goods—from LP ProStruct® Flooring with SmartFinish®, the only flooring product specifically warranted for shed use, to reflective LP ProStruct® Roof Sheathing with SilverTech® that brightens the shed’s interior while keeping it comfortable. And, thanks to the company’s innovative SmartGuard® treatment process, you can count on its siding and flooring to boast extra strength, durability, and resistance to fungal decay and termites.
