Amish Outdoor Buildings for Shade & Style

Amish quality is renowned far and wide as simply being a cut above the rest when it comes to beauty and durability. In a world where it feels like everything is built cheaply and made of plastic, it’s nice to know that some craftsmen still respect the old-fashioned tradition of quality. Amish outdoor buildings — like pavilions, gazebos, pergolas, and sheds — are our specialty. See what sets our hand-built product lines apart from the competition.

At The Backyard Showcase, we’re a real Amish company that sells luxury structures, weatherproof outdoor furniture, and everything you need to enjoy outdoor living. Take an inside look into the difference between Amish outdoor buildings and the big box store alternatives.

The Amish Craftsmanship Difference

Whether you’re looking for a garden shed to provide much-needed storage — or you want a shade structure like a pavilion for your yard — you have options. Whether it’s a big box hardware store or a random sales lot by the side of the road, there are more places than ever to get these essentials. The more crowded the market, the more necessary it is that you know exactly what you want. These are the real differences that Amish craftsmanship makes:

  • Will Last Longer — Almost all Amish pieces are widely known for the skilled workmanship and superior materials behind every product. Cheaper hardware store sheds and shade structures often fall apart after just a few years out in the elements. We often see this happen because the flimsier structures fall victim to rot, rust, or mold or generally poor construction. However, true Amish outdoor buildings will stand up to the elements for far longer. Our weatherproof sheds provide 20 to 25 years of leak-free storage! And our shade structures last 50+ years and look extraordinary the whole time!
  • Looks Great Up-Close & At a Distance — When you’re building a style-forward outdoor living space, you expect all of the individual elements that comprise it to be equally beautiful. This means the turned posts of a pergola or the exposed roof rafters of a pavilion — even the smallest details — add to the upscale feel of the space. There’s nothing worse than building a gorgeous space and having the illusion be shattered when someone gets too close. For example, imagine how spots of rust, splintering lumber, or patches of damage from careless construction could undermine your whole aesthetic! Amish craftsmanship ensures that your piece is beautiful from every angle.
  • Custom Designed — If you shop from a big box store, what they have on the lot is what you’re going to get. While that might be fine for some, if you have a distinct outdoor style you want to match or unique needs or dimensions to fit, that won’t work for you. Another reason to appreciate Amish outdoor buildings is that you can almost always work with the craftsman to custom design your piece. Since all of our products are hand-built in our workshops, we invite any customer to work with our team to design a one-of-a-kind piece. Whether you want a custom pergola or pavilion or shed, we’ll build it for you.
