The gambrel roof style is associated with colonial architecture—particularly Dutch colonial architecture. By the late 19th century, Americans began to look back romantically on their colonial roots. Within this colonial revival, one of the more popular designs was a redux of the original Dutch colonial. This gambrel roof design provided the advantage of a sloped roof, while maximizing overhead space. Our Mini Barns are available in variety of sizes and colors. Mini Barns can be built to our standard Heavy Duty construction specifications or in our more economical models... our Madison Series. Our Madison Series Mini Barns are a lighter build, constructed with your budget in mind.
