Information for Charleston, West Virginia

West Virginia, capital of West Virginia, U.S., seat of Kanawha county, and the largest city in the state. It is situated in the Allegheny Mountains, at theconfluenceof the Elk and Kanawha rivers (there bridged to South Charleston), in the south-central part of the state.State Capitol, Charleston, West Virginia, U.S., facing the Kanawha River. Charles May/Shostal Associates The settlement developed on land purchased by Colonel George Clendenin in 1787; the patent for the land was signed by then governor Thomas Jefferson. Clendenin built Fort Lee there in 1788, and the town was chartered in 1794; first named Charles Town, for Clendenin's father, it was renamed Charleston in 1819. Because it lay on the migration route to the Ohio River valley, the settlement soon became a transshipment point and attracted such frontier figures as Daniel Boone, Simon Kenton, and Ann Bailey. The town utilized local brine wells as early as 1795 and was an important centre of salt production in 1824, when the first steamboat arrived.During the American Civil War, Union general Joseph A.J. Lightburn was forced back to Charleston from Fayetteville to the southeast on September 11, 1862. Two days later Confederate general William Loring defeated Lightburn there and occupied Charleston for almost two months. Confederate forces took salt supplies and other goods from the Kanawha River valley, destroying most of the saltworks as they departed. Charleston was nominated as the state capital in 1870, but it took seven years and a popular vote before the capital moved there permanently.Charleston lies in an area rich in bituminous coal, petroleum, and natural gas as well as salt, and at one time these resources supplied a large chemical manufacturing industry in the Kanawha River valley. Nylon, Lucite, and other base chemicals used to produce consumer plastics were developed in the area. Chemicals are still important, though the economy is now more diversified, with an emphasis on manufacturing and on other services (government and health care).The State Capitol, designed by architect Cass Gilbert and completed in 1932, features a gold-leafed dome that is larger than that of the United States Capitol. The Capitol complex contains the governor's mansion, the cultural centre, the state museum, and a memorial to Booker T. Washington, who grew up in nearby Malden. The University of Charleston (formerly Morris Harvey College) is a private, coeducational university founded in 1888; West Virginia State College (1891), a historically African American college, is in nearby Institute. Yeager Airport, just to the northeast, is named for test pilot Charles E. Yeager, who was born in the area. A planned Center for the Arts and Sciences of West Virginia will include an art museum, a performing arts centre, a science centre, and a planetarium. Inc. 1794; city, 1870. Pop. (2000) 53, 421; Charleston Metro Area, 309, 635; (2010) 51, 400; Charleston Metro Area, 304, 284.

Charleston - A Handmade Shed: The Perfect Solution Articles



How to Buy a Shed the Smart Way (8 Things to Look For)

I promised in my shed delivery article that I'd be sharing a brief buying guide a week later. I didn't make good on the timeline, but I didn't forget the commitment.

In order to produce a buying guide, we needed some additional pictures of a substandard shed to highlight the quality differences between sheds that are built 'up to a standard' (like the one we purchased) vs. those that are built 'down to a price.' We've also been well distracted by the workshop drywall project.

Excuses aside, I think this is an important topic to cover, because I'm sure many of you will be building or buying a shed in the next few years. Ethan took some time earlier this week to head to a local (purposefully unnamed) big box store to snap some pics of a low quality model. Now we've got everything we need for the comparison.

Before I get started, it's worth noting that it is our firm opinion that buying (or building) a shed that meets a high quality specification is worth the additional cost. The shed will last longer and look better than cheaper alternatives. When you're looking to purchase a shed, make sure to really examine the build quality and compare prices. We found that our local, privately-held shed company was able to build and deliver a shed for nearly the same price as the big box home improvement stores, but with a much higher quality build.

For this buying guide, we'll be comparing features of our 8x12 custom-built shed with an 8x12 model available at the big box store. Our shed cost us approximately $2,700 with all the options, while the low quality shed costs approximately $1,900. The big ticket items that made our shed more expensive included vinyl siding (about $400) and architectural shingles (about $100). Subtract those, and the price for these models gets within 15% of each other.

While not the subject of this guide, we were able to find a shed that was a near exact match to ours at the big box. The price: a whopping $4,000 delivered and installed. This would be about $1,300 more than we paid.

Factor 1: Floor Material

Our shed floor is built with 3/4" pressure treated plywood over 12" o.c. joists. The low quality shed is built with 5/8" untreated oriented strand board (OSB) over 16" o.c. joists. OSB is particularly susceptible to buckling and warping when exposed to high moisture levels. This is especially the case at the edges/joints. Pressure treated plywood, on the other hand, is a much more durable surface that will handle moderate moisture very well, and could be sealed for additional protection. For the best surface, 3/4" tongue-and-groove plywood could be used to further abate buckling.

Factor 2: Wall Studs and Sheathing

Our shed is constructed with uniform 2x4 studs spaced 16" o.c. covered with 1/2" plywood walls. The low quality shed is build with 2x3 lumber spaced 24" o.c. (and nearly 4" o.c. on the side walls) with 1/2" OSB for walls. The walls of the low quality shed are much more likely to buckle over time, especially if the 2x3s and OSB are subject to high moisture. High quality 2x4 lumber provides significantly more structural rigidity in the build.

Factor 3: Roof Rafters & Roof Sheathing

Our shed is constructed with 2x4 roof rafters spaced 16" o.c. with a 1/2" plywood sheathing. The low quality shed uses the same 2x3 as are used on its walls, spaced 24" o.c. with 1/2" OSB on top. Over time, the roof of the low quality shed is much more likely to sag, especially in a high-moisture environment.

Factor 4: Roofing Shingles

Our shed has 30-year architectural shingles. The low quality shed has 3-tab shingles that don't look like they're wearing well even while the shed sits on the lot. Our guess is that those shingles are not rated for installation over OSB and likely have a 15 year warranty, max.

Factor 5: Siding

One of the major reasons our shed is more expensive than the low quality version is that we opted for vinyl siding (a $400 upgrade). Vinyl siding is virtually maintenance-free, and with a 2x4-over-plywood substructure, it will last for at least 20 years. The wood siding on the low-quality shed will require painting and will wear out far more quickly. We think vinyl looks much better, too.

Factor 6: Shelving / Work Space Materials

We built three shelves in our shed using 2x4s and 1/2" plywood at a cost of about $100. Our shelves will last for the life of the shed.The materials used for shelving in the low quality shed are the same as those used for the walls (2x3s, 1/2" OSB). You can see from the pictures below that these shelves are already warping. Any weight placed on the large shelf will cause it to buckle over time.

Factor 7: Door Quality

Our shed sports all metal door construction that isn't likely to sag. The low quality shed includes wood doors that will bend and warp over time. The one drawback for our shed is that metal doors are more likely to dent under abuse. However, we would far prefer to have metal doors over wood ones.

Factor 8: Trim Components

Our shed features window boxes made from rot-proof composite materials. The low quality shed doesn't have window boxes, but if it did, they would likely be painted wood with plastic inserts (or worse, wood alone, which will rot after just a few years). The trim components this shed does have are already looking worn.

Conclusions

If you're in the market for a new shed, shop around. The big home improvement stores especially seem to be selling sheds with substandard materials. This is one area where a little bit of legwork can make a huge difference in your return on investment.

Summary of Shed Buying Tips

Avoid oriented strand board, especially for roofing and sub flooring. Look for plywood construction, and especially 3/4" pressure treated, tongue-and-groove plywood for the floor.
Avoid 2x3s, especially if they are spaced far apart. Look for 2x4s no more than 16" on center.
Consider roofing and siding materials. Look for shingles with at least a 25 year life.
Look for rot-proof composite materials.
Look for quality doors that won't sag over time.
Above all, don't sacrifice quality to save a few bucks. If you're going to spend $1,900 on a shed, spend $500 more and get something worthwhile.
