Quaker architecture is defined in the concept of the meeting house, where friends would come together to praise and worship. For Quakers, the concept of community was very important and the belief was that community is what brought us closer to God. Likewise, these Quaker style sheds yearn to be places where friends gather either in or around the garden, pool, or barbecue. While you’re certainly free to use these stylish sheds as storage spaces, they make great little centerpieces for social gatherings and are large enough to accommodate work areas, recreation areas, or even miniature bars, although, we’re not sure if the Quakers would approve of the last option.
