8 x 12 $3500
8 x 16 $4000
8 x 16 x 10 $4500
Delivered, complete and leveled. Every building is made to order so you can have anything you want.

- Will I need a permit?
No. (Section R05.2-1 2000 international residential code). You will have to observe proximity to lot lines and local covenants and ordinances. I will be happy to help you with this.
- Will I pay more property tax?
- Will these things take the wind?
Yes. Polycarb panels will not fray on the edges, fatigue from repeated bending, or crack when struck by flying debris. They are fastened every 6 inches to 2 x 4 purlins 2' O. C. by 1 1/2 inches gasket head screws. The all pressure treated superstructure has joint connections that compress when moved, more like a boat framed than typical western framing. For extreme applications, helical piers or guy wire anchors are available.
- Do I need level ground?
In fact, you may use your building as a bridge. The 6 x 6 treated skids are sufficient to support the entire building from end to end plus a 2000 pound load.
- Is this polycarbonate like plastic?
Acrylic (plexi-glass), PVC, polyethylene, and fiberglass are all light transmitting materials that break down under UV radiation and become cloudy and brittle. they are also porous enough to allow black mold penetration. Polycarbonate, also known as lexan or bulletproof glass, is a far superior material that remains clear, strong, and flexible.
- How do your buildings stay dry?
Ventilation. The only way to keep an unheated space dry is to continually change the air. This is accomplished from bottom to top by a flue effect at the ridge. In addition, the floor is off the ground and well ventilated underneath. The floor and all of the framing are pessure treated with copper so they will not mold.
- Can I make changes?
Yes. By all means. Every building is made to order so you can have exactly what you want. Some common extras are:
- Dutch doors
- custom windows
- extra stainless steel
- steps and ramps
- benches and shelves
Use your imagination!
