Boathouse Storage Shed - 8 x 12ft

Perfect DIY Storage Shed Kit for a Kayak, Canoe or Paddle Board



A boathouse is a building at the edge of a lake, river, or inlet in which boats are kept. A boatshed is a lockable wooden shed used to secure small private watercraft on a beach front. With many new boats like kayaks and paddleboards and the reliable canoes, finding a shed that can hold them was near impossible. Not any more. Cedarshed's multi-purpose Boathouse was perfectly designed for a backyard, rivers or on a lakehouse to store these longer watercraft.

Loading Canoe into Boathouse Storage

The exterior of the 8x12ft Boathouse Storage Sheds is made from Western Red Cedar wood. This type of wood is renowned for its natural beauty and outstanding physical properties that make it one of the world's most unique woods. Red Cedar is free from pitch and is naturally decay and insect resistant. Cedar's low density gives it an insulation value superior to most other species. Light weight, easy to work, easy to finish, possessing outstanding dimensional stability, Western Red Cedar is a preferred wood for nearly all purposes where attractive appearance or resistance to weather is important. Western Red Cedar is one of the few wood species that are naturally at home in the outdoors. It is classified as a durable wood by the building codes across North America, which permits the use of its heartwood in exterior applications without preservative treatments.
