Have Questions? We are happy to help!
Going through our Frequently Asked Questions can get you the information you need when buying one of our prefab storage sheds or sheds that need to be built on your property. If you are wondering about how to build a shed, we can absolutely help you. Most of our sheds can be delivered on-site rather than be built from scratch. Most of the time it is case by case, but our team makes sure we talk to you right away when interested in ordering one of our prefab buildings. Some of our buildings such as our larger buildings will be built on site, so when you are looking about how to build a shed, we can show you how it is done professionally. Go over some of our Frequently Asked Questions if you need further help. If you see something missing, please let us know, we love answering your questions about our Buildings and Outdoor Furniture.
WILL I NEED A BUILDING PERMIT FOR MY SHED?
Some areas require building permits for sheds and others do not, so check with your local municipality if you have questions for your area. We have a shed diagram that may be useful in the permitting process if you do find you need a permit (see shed construction).
DO THE SKIDS STAY IN PLACE BELOW MY SHED?
The skids below the barn are spaced correctly to fit the transport trailer but also stay in place after installation. If your barn needs to be built on a concrete pad that you wish to use as the floor we bring the barn as a kit and construct it on your concrete pad.
WILL YOU USE BLOCKS TO LEVEL MY SHED?
We do not normally level a barn using blocks, though in some situations for smaller barns we can use blocks for leveling. Let us know in advance if you believe blocking may work for your situation. Three things apply in the event we agree to try to level your barn with blocks: (1) You will need to provide ample blocks and have them on site before the barn arrives, (2) you may need to pay extra for the time needed to block the barn, and (3) we will not return to reblock a barn that has settled after installation.
HOW DO YOU BUILD LARGE BARNS, BARNS, AND GARAGES? HOW DO YOU BUILD TWO STORY STRUCTURES?
All larger structures take some final assembly at the job site. Sometimes a barn can be built and delivered in sections with the sections being joined on location. The second story of a two story barn is always finibarn at the job site. For some larger buildings the lower story is shipped as a kit with prefab walls rather than completed sections.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO CANCEL AN ORDER FOR A SHED OR BUILDING?
A barn or barn order may be cancelled for a full refund before the order has been processed at the shop. The amount of refund after the order has been processed depends on the order itself and the amount of work that has been done on the order at the point of cancellation.
CAN YOU BUILD A SHED OR BUILDING AT MY SITE IF THE STANDARD DELIVERY DOESN’T WORK FOR ME?
If space or ground conditions do not permit delivery of a fully assembled barn or barn to your site we can bring the structure as a kit with prefabricated walls instead and assemble it on location. Building a barn or barn on site is less efficient than building it at the shop so we need to charge more when we build a barn or barn on site.
HOW DO YOU GET A STORAGE SHED INTO MY YARD?
The barn is normally assembled at the shop and brought to your location on a truck and trailer. The truck and trailer are then backed into your yard to the point where you want the barn, the trailer is tilted, and the barn is slid off the back of the trailer. An alternative method is to use a “mule,” a specialized forklift used to move barns. Unlike a standard forklift the mule can be used in a yard. Get for more information about the mule.
