    What is the difference between an Apex roof and a Reverse Apex roof?

    I'm buying a new shed and have the option to have either but looking at the instructions on the web I can't see what the difference is except the reverse apex size is slightly smaller for some reason.

    AFAIK a reverse apex shed is a shed with an apex roof where the door is set in a side wall instead of the gable end wall. No idea why the sizes would be different, however

    Thanks JAK. The shed I'm buying states an apex roof with the alternative for a reverse apex. However, this particular shed has a side door and a set of double doors in the gable end.

    Had it all planned out to have the double doors on the end, (Apex style), and no my dear wife has come up with a plan to put the spa and gazebo in the gap at the end so it looks like the double doors will be going on the side, (Reverse Apex style), LOL.
    I suppose when we are building it we will consider each option as it will determine the inside layout.
