What are Portable Buildings?
A portable building is a structure that has been designed and build to be mobile rather than permanently located. Manufacturers use the same process for portable buildings as they use when building homes. Commonly used as storage sheds, garden sheds, hobby huts, and cabins, these outdoor portable buildings have gained popularity throughout the nation. Listed below are a few possible ideas for using these units:

Lofted Barn – Lofted barns are a classic, practical, unique storage shed. With such an elegant look that resembles that of an old barn, these buildings add a bit of class to your backyard!
Utility Shed – Has your home or garage been taken over by your storage boxes? A utility shed provides the perfect solution for you! By storing all those boxes and yard sale items in a utility shed, you can now reclaim your garage and living space.
Cabin – Do you wish you had a place to escape to with your family? A hand-crafted wooden cabin is the perfect place to go when you’re in need of some good quality time with friends and family.
Garage – Garages are great options for families in need of additional parking space or an area for all their outdoor equipment. With a portable building, you can custom-design a garage to fit your vehicle and have it installed right beside your house for convenience.

How Portable Buildings Can Improve Your Way of Life
Custom portable buildings and sheds have gained popularity throughout the nation, becoming a top choice for storage needs and much more. Designed to fulfill your very needs, portable sheds are hand-crafted the old-fashioned way! Not only will they provide a convenient way to store valuables, park vehicles and outdoor equipment, or just relax, but they will add to your property value.

Quality Check
The kind of materials used to construct your portable storage shed is important to the longevity of the structure. The quality of the materials used in the construction of your building will determine if it will withstand the changing seasons and any harsh weather elements it may experience. Be sure to discuss the construction of your portable shed with the provider before purchasing one.

Shed Sizes
The two main questions you need to ask yourself when it comes to the size shed you need is, “What am I using this shed for?” and “How much stuff will I be storing inside?” We recommend that you take any possible future needs into consideration; choose a size LARGER than your current needs. A common mistake among customers is not purchasing a shed that will accommodate their growing needs later on down the road.

When it comes to the flooring you put down in your portable building, you want something that is waterproof and that will last. Two common flooring materials used for portable buildings are concrete and treated plywood, both excellent flooring choices. If you decide to paint your floor, we recommend you use an exterior porch or floor paint.

There are a few factors that play a role in the final price of your new structure: size, materials used, the chosen provider, and the design. Keep in mind, when you opt for high-quality materials for construction, you’re avoiding additional maintenance and repair fees later on down the road.

Easy Maintenance
We can all agree that maintaining your portable building is very important. By performing any needed maintenance, you are adding to the life-span of your structure. Here are a few tips on the best ways to maintain your outdoor portable shed:
→ Keep the floor dry. If you opt for a wooden floor, you may need to consider using pressure-treated plywood.
→ By installing a critter guard, you can keep those pesky rodents out from under your shed as well as from chewing your wooden floors.
→ Don’t keep piles of mulch or dirt against the sides of your building as they can lock moisture in, causing the wood to rot. If the shed is being installed beside a hill, you may also want to consider a retaining wall.
