About Historic Shed

Historic Shed was founded by the historic preservation professionals at Preservation Resource, Inc. to meet the needs of historic Florida home owners for affordable and attractive additional space that complements and enhances their historic property. Each Historic Shed is designed to meet both your aesthetic and functional requirements.

Historic Shed produces its products in a controlled manufacturing environment to your specifications, and then delivers and installs the completed product, fully painted, to your site ready for use. A dedicated in-house professional preservation designer customizes each Historic Shed to complement any historic building. We pride ourselves on being knowledgeable about traditional details and design.

At Historic Shed, we want every product to demonstrate our commitment to historic preservation principles, craftsmanship and proper use of traditional materials and details. Our products are designed to be durable, useful and attractive so that they will be cherished as long as the historic buildings they complement. We will meet each project, no matter how large or small, with enthusiasm, commitment and professionalism.

Each shed, garage and cottage meets or exceeds Florida Building Code, including all wind load requirements.

Historic Shed has partnered with Citizens State Bank to offer financing for all its products. For more information, email or contact Historic Shed.

Who's Behind Historic Shed?

Some History

Some History

Historic Shed was started by a husband-wife team who run a very hands-on business from design through construction. They have managed a historic preservation consulting company together since 2000 called Preservation Resource, Inc. In 2006, Craig came up with the idea for Historic Shed, which was officially launched in 2008. They have two children that are growing up in a construction-focused world.

Mr. DeRoin has over 25 years experience in renovation and restoration of historic buildings in Florida. You won’t find him on LinkedIn, Twitter, or Facebook and he rarely checks his email.

And he’s the funny one.
