The only requirement is a level location. Our buildings are designed to rest directly on their skids. In order to level, we use a jack to raise the building until it is level, then we block underneath it with ground contact rated treated wood blocks.
Yes! We only require that you provide the blocks. The rule of thumb for figuring blocks is one block for every 4′ to 6′ of skid length on the flat ground. A typical 10×16 is blocked at 6 to 8 points, one block on each end of the skid and one or two blocks in the middle of each skid.
We highly recommend buying concrete blocks. We recommend 4 inch thick, solid cap blocks. Thinner blocks tend to crack, and larger blocks cause the building to be higher above the ground and more difficult to access. It is not advisable to place the blocks before the driver delivers the building.
A vertical space of 14ft, measured from the ground to the top of the building when it is on the trailer, is required. Be sure to take any tree branches and utility wires into account. The driver will still need a minimum of 2ft of space to maneuver the truck. That is, a building 12ft wide will require a 14 foot wide space. Please take tight turns into account when considering a location.
We can build any size building between 8×8 and 14×36 as long as it is in increments of 2ft. Therefore, sizes that are not listed on your dealer’s price list can be built. We also offer a Metro Shed with sizes from 5×6 and larger. Some hauling restrictions may apply on larger sizes.
We are limited by hauling regulations as to how wide a building we can deliver. The current regulation is 12ft. For this reason, 12ft wide buildings are measured from eave to eave. Our 8ft and 10ft wide buildings are measured from wall to wall.
No maintenance is required. We do recommend that you apply a stain to your Fir building somewhere between 1- year and 2-1/2 years of receiving it. Please keep in mind that On-Lot buildings may need to be re-stained sooner, as they may have been on the lot for some time.
You are responsible for contacting your local city and county agencies in regard to zoning, permits, setbacks, and covenants. Also, it is recommended that you contact your Home Owners Association (if applicable) to determine what neighborhood rules and regulations may apply.
All of the standard buildings are available for rent-to-own. There are rare situations where a highly customized building can require paying cash. Also, if a customer wants to modify the construction of their building or paint it, then it must be a cash purchase.
The standard side wall height of:
We guarantee our buildings to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 5 years. Metal roofs and Shingles are rated for 30 years.
Our shingles have 30-year warranty. Metal roofs also come with a 30-year manufacturer warranty.
Although we do not actually offer this service, we do highly recommend that your building be anchored down to reduce the risk of any natural related accidents.
We feel your product is one of the best sheds and barns available for purchase. The employees who design, build and do the finish work of this product take great care and pride and it shows. If I had the property sape, I would set up a dealership so they could be marketed with so many possible uses as such a cost effective product.
The delivery driver Dennis was extremely professional and capable of maneuvering the building in a space-restricted spot. Amazingly, he managed to preposition the building on the truck, and maneuver the building to its target spot. Very skilled operator, diligent in overcoming obstacles, polite, and efficient. All I can say is “Wow”. Great service, Great product.
