This is a 1 story shed. The main facade faces east with its ridge-line perpendicular to Hamburg Road, which runs approximately north-south at this point. The main entry in the east gable-facade is a pair of swinging hinged doors which encompass the entire width of the façade, except for the gable attic, which is blank. The south eave-facade has an off-center single six-over-six double hung window. The north eave-facade is identical. The west gable-facade has a six-over-six window in the center. The shed has unpainted vertical flush-board and a deteriorated wood shingle roof. The foundation is mortared field-stone.
A shed is typically a simple, single-story structure in a back garden or on an allotment that is used for storage, hobbies, or as a workshop. Sheds vary considerably in the complexity of their construction and their size, from small open-sided tin-roofed structures to large wood-framed sheds with shingled roofs, windows, and electrical outlets. Sheds used on farms or in industry can be large structures.
This shed is close to the street and is across from 368 Hamburg Road. To the west of the shed is a long tract of open space that runs north-south. To the north, east and south is woodland. Hamburg Road runs approximately north-south at this point and the shed is north of the intersection of Hamburg Road and Joshuatown Road.
