First time I got to watch a delivery, unloading & set up of a large Amish shed in my neighbor's back yard. One man & a truck did it all! 30 minutes to unload and transport to the back yard using a "mule" and then another hour to set it up, etc. Pretty cool stuff & this man was great! The neighbor purchased this shed from local dealer, Carolina Structures – Knightdale, in Knightdale, NC

  1. Pretty cool, method…you mention no permit needed….same here, but now I have someone telling me I need a zoning permit for one I just built. Government always finds a way to tap you for your money….I have a zoning permit for my home I am building and a garage with a 40′ container as well, but not for the shed….they never get enough do they? I haven’t even put the container or the garage up yet….makes you want to snap sometimes the interference in our lives from government and over a shed no less.

    1. @Joseph Deffendoll They’re out of control, my town demolished my house while i was away for 5 mos. taking care of my dad with cancer!! They said it was abandoned, meanwhile it was full of stuff!! Nothing i can do!!

    1. Hi Shirley, this was definitely cool to watch in person! Since then my beach neighbors asked me to video delivery and set up of their shed. They wanted that since there were 2 issues getting it in their back yard, a tight squeeze between their home and the neighbors deck and then place it between 2 trees. The man used a remote controlled trailer instead of a “mule”. You may enjoy watching this one as well, it’s titled WILL IT FIT and it’s from Nov 2015.

    1. I’ve built sheds in time past but Ryan’s designs are superb [ ].His work are second to none. I’ve never seen such before. The sheds are looking very nice and the building plan instructions are so detailed and very well simplified. This is cool!

    2. Nice video content! Forgive me for butting in, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you researched – Mahorrla Wooden Paradise Method (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a good exclusive product for building better sheds and woodworking minus the normal expense. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my m8 at very last got excellent results with it.

  2. who ever came up with that whole setup from the sliding trailer to the self propelled dolly with the trolleys all remote controlled needs some kind of bonus. he or she is a genius.

  3. I bought a 12 x 24 shed. One man showed up at noon and left at 12:45   He brought it in and set it up including leveling in 45 minutes.  All I told him was line it up with the front of the house. He said the ground was not level it was on an incline.  He said he could level it with the pads that came with the shed or he could do it right if I paid for the extra pads. I said do it right. It costs me $15 for the extra pads. In and out in 45 minutes. That’s American know how!

    1. I did that for a little while for a company in Florida. But, I didn’t have that equipment to work with. I just had a roll of trailer two slide ramps for the shed and a breaker bar. It sucked.

    1. The Amish do build them but they contract with Menonnites to do the delivery and scheduling stuff because they are allowed to use electric and modern stuff.

      Yeah, that’s pretty much it. Thing is, the Amish don’t believe that modern things are evil or even wrong to use/have them. Instead they created a list of rules (which varies quite a bit from one place to another) that they believe will make it easier to lead a more common/grounded life which in turn makes it easier to be a Christian.

      For instance they don’t allow the ownership of vehicles since it makes it too easy to travel and less likely for you to depend on the community. Also it makes trips on a whim practically impossible.

      Also they seem to be much more lax on their rules when it comes to business, so owning a vehicle or power tools if only used for work is usually acceptable. (Provided they find a non-Amish person to drive them.)

    3. “Amish”, in this instance, refers to the roof design. These manufactured sheds come in either an A-frame roof or Amish style… it doesn’t mean the Amish literally built it and delivered it.

  4. The Amish do some fine work and use good materials …. Great video!! That Moving Company knew what they were doing Hauling and moving that Shed around.. Great Job!!

  5. *Ryan has the best materials out there on the market [ Check Details Here=>**** ]. I was stuck while building my first wood shed, so frustrated I have to abandon that project. I’m glad to have come in contact with Ryan’s building plan. It’s amazing.*
