Ohio Outdoor Structures, LLC began in late 2012 but our history dates back to 1969 when Generation One began manufacturing the Buckeye Barns brand of premium all wood storage barns and cabins! At that time, there were no home improvement stores or lumber yards selling wooden storage barns. Even Ohio's Amish Country was not yet offering wooden storage barns. The only other "shed" that was available in 1969 was a metal shed from Sears Roebuck and Co.
When local folks began realizing the huge success of the wooden Buckeye Barns and the great demand, new barn companies began to form, many of which you can still find in Ohio's Amish Country. What were once "Buckeye Designs" now are commonplace in many of the Amish and Mennonite barn company offerings. We believe it is safe to say that Buckeye Barns, Inc. had a very big influence on our Amish neighbors and even many of today's "non-Amish" barn companies - either directly or indirectly.
Generation One and the company Buckeye Barns, Inc. is now retired after 40+ successful years of pioneering the barn industry. In spite of this retirement, Generation Two is carrying on the many years of knowledge and experience through Ohio Outdoor Structures while marketing products manufactured by several quality companies. Generation Two hopes that our many years in the outdoor structure industry proves to be of great benefit to our valued customers. We look forward to helping you with your outdoor structure needs!
