How do you deliver your buildings and how much room do you need?
The buildings are delivered using three different size trailers and there must be enough room to allow a straight exit with a combined length of the building trailer and truck. Unloading our building is similar to unloading a boat in the water. There are also height limitations. Approximate delivery length requirements, 13’ and below to be free of tree limbs and wires, also, buildings can not be placed under eaves or carports. Please contact us for more details.
What do I need to prepare my site for delivery?

- Make sure there is air flow
- Make sure site is reasonably level
- Make sure water drains away from building and out of the way of sprinklers

Capability of storing a car or truck
Do I have to worry about snow load?
Our buildings are designed for a 65 pound snow load for cities such as Wenatchee, Yakima, Black Diamond, North Bend, Sultan, Startup, Goldbar and Skykomish. However they can be designed to support loads for areas such as Stevens Pass.

A concrete foundation is not required, but does make the most ideal platform for the building to go on. Asphalt, crushed gravel, bark, grass, and dirt will all work as a foundation

Are there any additional costs I need to consider?

What type of construction methods do you use?
Our typical construction methods for our custom buildings and sheds consists of using treated floor joists that are attached to the treated skids with a joist support bracket 16″ on center. 3/4″ – 4′ x 8′ tongue & groove flooring is glued and nailed to the floor joist and across the top of the skids. Stud walls are built around the perimeter of the floor 24″ on center. Roof trusses are placed and nailed on top of the stud wall 24″ on center or altered to match higher snow loads. 4′ x 8′ siding is nailed to the stud walls. However the customer has the ability to create their own design from the floor to the roof. Our options consist of custom flooring, interior paneling, insulation, HVAC, electrical, windows, shelves, interior cabinets, shake, tile or metal roof and much more. Only top quality building materials are used and we will customize your buildings to fit your needs and tastes.
What is the delivery process?
Our buildings have been delivered all across the State of Washington (cities delivered to drop down list goes here). The buildings are delivered on a trailer and are unloaded similar to a boat. The driver will back into the spot to where the building is to be offloaded. The front of the trailer is raised and the building slides off the trailer with the aid of rollers and a winch. The truck and trailer need to drive straight (without an angle) away from the building. The area needed to unload the building is the length of the building, trailer and truck added together. The following considerations are necessary for a successful delivery.
- Height obstruction. Are there overhead power lines, tree limbs below 14’ in height?
- Are there tight turns, dips, excessive grades, loose road surface, mud, bridges that will make delivery difficult or possible.
- Are there fences, gates, or trees we need to drive through, around, or park against.
