One of the questions customers ask when searching for Amish Sheds in PA is if Sheds Unlimited of is actually an Amish owned storage shed company, or if we simply advertise that way to sell more buildings. Sheds Unlimited is a family owned and operated Amish Sheds company based in the heart of the Amish Country in Lancaster County, PA. But being located in Amish Country PA does not make Sheds Unlimited an authentic Amish Sheds manufacturer. Read on to find out who the owners and workers at Sheds Unlimited of Lancaster County, PA really are!
This is the Sheds Unlimited Family Years Ago!
Founders of the PA Based Amish Sheds Company
Stephen and Anna Stoltzfus are the founders of the Sheds Unlimited Amish Sheds and Barns company located in the Lancaster County Amish Country. They both grew up on farms in the Old Order Amish church where driving a horse and buggy and working on the farm with horses is still the norm. Up into their twenties Steve and Anna were fully a part of the traditional Amish community which many only read about in books or watch in films.
When they began to be convicted of their unwholesome life during the “rumspringa” years, they both repented of their ways and were born-again as described by Jesus in John 3. From there they joined a group of Amish youth called the “Goodies.” Very little has been written about the Goodies, but they were a group who chose to reject the rumspringa tradition of the Amish in which young Amish folks go out and try out drinking, smoking and things which are unacceptable to church members. Steve and Anna’s lives were changed by preachers who encouaraged them to live transformed lives by the power of Jesus Christ. Their Amish to Goodies to New Order story was written by Chris Stoltzfus, the middle son of the five Stoltzfus sons.
The Sheds Unlimited Stoltzfus Family
From the Goodies, Steve and Anna joined a New Order Amish group which had accepted the use of some modern machinery in their farming practices. For that reason, there was split in the Old Order Church and from that came the New Order Amish church. Soon, one of the New Order churches began accepting cars and even built a church building for worship services. This church which is located in New Holland, PA continues to operate as the Summitview Christian Church.
From the Summitview Church the Stoltzfus family became assocaiated with the Beachy Amish Mennonite Church mentioned earlier. When a group of folks broke away from the Summitview Church, Steve and Anna along with their grown children joined the new Bethel Church in Morgantown, PA. The Bethel Church is associated with several other Beachy Amish Churches which had been in the area for decades.

Sheds Unlimited Owners Beachy Amish Tradition
The Beachy Amish make use of some forms of modern conviences and reject others. Many who meet a Beachy Amish will notice they still retain some of the traditional dress patterns although somewhat different from the Amish. The Beachy Amish women wear a veil or prayer covering on their heads as a sign of submission to God’s order of headship as taught in I Corinthians 11. They also typically wear a homemade cape style dress which retains much of the traditional pattern of the Amish with some variation. To learn more about Beachy Amish faith and practice visit the Beachy Amish website which contains detailed history on their tradition.
Beachy Amish reject the presence of television in their homes and strive to follow after the teachings of Jesus in all their lives (notice the word strive!). They also tend to have larger families than the norm. In the Stoltzfus Family there are five sons and two daughters. All but one of the children is now married so there is lots of excitement with the grandchildren when the family is together! See the Family Page of our Amish Sheds website to see more photos and learn more about the Stoltzfus Family.
Some Beachy churches do accept the internet due to its usefulness in business. As a result of this, Sheds Unlimited has built an Amish Sheds business primarily through internet sales. These Amish Sheds from PA are shipped to NJ, NY, CT, DE, MD, VA, WV and beyond. The Amish Sheds and Barns are prefabricated in our Lancaster County manufacturing facility located on the fourth generation family farm. Customers can visit the farm and watch the children of the fifth generation run around and enjoy time with their grandpa, father and uncles who work in the Amish sheds and barns business.
Today the Sheds Unlimited Corporation today is owned by the original owner, Stephen J. Stoltzfus, his three sons and a brother/son-in-law. All them are currently a part of the Beachy Amish Mennonite Church. Furthermore, many of the Sheds Unlimited workers are from surrounding Old Order Amish families. Some come to work on their scooters, others find drivers to bring them to work day after day.
So yes, Sheds Unlimited is truly an Amish Sheds manufacturer even though the owners are not driving around in a horse and buggy. Maybe another way of saying it would be that Sheds Unlimited is an Amish-Mennonite owned Storage Shed Company. But nonetheless, our workmanship stands in the line with centuries of Amish tradition of working hard with their hands.
