Where to Buy

Elite Barn And Side Loft

With its gambrel roof and lofted design, this portable building can provide you with flexible storage options for everything from ladders and pool supplies, to large furniture and garden tools.



Product Description

The Elite Barn and Side Loft provides a very good balance between style, functionality, capacity, and quality.

Storage Capacity to Meet Your Needs

The smallest model we deliver is 10’ x 16’, but it can accommodate everything your returning college student brings home in a 20’ U-Haul Truck. Need temporary storage for an entire house? Our largest unit (12’ x 36’) provides nearly 3000 cubic feet of capacity, enough to hold 650 Large U-Haul Boxes.

Home Owner Association (HOA) Friendly Design

If your neighborhood has specific guidelines and ordinances for property additions…NO WORRIES. Standard features with this building include beautiful architectural grade shingles and wood siding colors. In addition, if desired or HOA required, with this unit you even have the option to color match the exterior of your home.

Engineered Durability

High-quality construction components and design processes are at the very foundation of every product we build. Our 2” x 6” treated plywood flooring system and steel reinforced doors elevate this building to surpass the wind load design performance standards sanctioned by the International Code Council. Bennett backs its promise of quality with a Limited 5-Year Factory Warranty on workmanship, and a Limited 25-Year Floor System Warranty.

For architectural shingling, wood siding, and exterior paint we use the industry leading suppliers of Owens Corning®, LP® Building Products, and Sherwin-Williams®. This ensures that you receive both superior quality and maximum warranty coverage for your investment.

Infinite Possibilities

You can easily design the Elite Barn and Side Loft to serve as a pool house, a studio for your hobbies, a protected space for your new John Deere® riding mower, or a place to just “hang out”.  Want even more versatility? Bennett Building Systems can provide you with more options for windows, doors, electrical, lighting, and loft space to meet your every need.
