FAQ

Frequently Ask Questions

Please Note: If you have questions, please email or call. Questions in the comment area below each page may not be seen on a timely basis… Do you have display buildings
we can look at ?

No, we do not maintain a sales lot location.  This saves us
thousands of dollars per month, in overhead, which we are able to pass
on to you, our customer.  This is the primary reason for our very
competitive prices.

 

Can you provide references ?

Yes we will gladly provide references upon request.

 

Do we have to give you money up front ?

No, under most circumstances, payment is expected in full upon
completion.   With larger projects we may ask for a partial
payment the first day, after we have brought materials to the job site
and began work, providing you with collateral.   This would
be agreed to ahead of time if we feel it necessary.

 

What form of payment do you accept ?

Cash or check.

 

Do you use subcontractors to build my
building ?

No, the owner is present on every job.

 

Do you provide construction services,
other than storage buildings ?

Yes, we build shell cabins and sometimes we offer other services to our
customers such as decks, covers, and fences, when our schedule permits.

 

Can you match the shingles on my house ?

Yes.  We include any color 3 tab shingle which is available in
stock at Home Depot, Lowes, or McCoys.  This will match 90% of
homes.  Custom shingles are available at an additional cost, if an
exact brand/color is required which is only available at a roofing
supply company.

 

What time do you arrive at my house to
build my building?

We start out each morning with some preparation in the shop, followed
by loading material for the job and driving to your house.
Usually we arrive some time between 10 and 12 according to how far the
drive is and how quickly we can get in and out of the lumber yard.

 

How long does it take to build my
building ?

One to two days on most size buildings.

 

What if my building gets wet during
the construction process ?

We try to avoid this by keeping an eye on weather and not starting a
job if rain is eminent.  Mother nature does her own thing however
and sometimes buildings do get wet.  Getting some rain on your
building during construction doesn’t cause any problems.  OSB
products are not like partical board or standard plywood, and they hold
up really well to moisture.  If you think about it, almost
all homes get rained on during the construction process.

 

Do you need to come to my house and
look at the building site ?

Not usually.  Almost all building sites look the same to us.
We try to limit the trips to keep our overhead and prices low.
Tell us if something is out of the ordinary and we will come check it
out.

    Repeat customer here, in Early. Can you quote me this: 12×20 gable building, one 9 lite door on the side, 2×3 thermal windows each side of door. Can the roof have a slightly taller pitch than your photo? I will finish out with electricity, insulation, etc., so can we add Vytex paper? Thanks!

    • Jerry says:

      A 12×20 gable building is $3395
      9 lite steel door with hardware $200
      2×3 thermal windows $130 ea x2 $260
      Total $3855

      We can raise the pitch of the roof from 3/12 to 5/12 for an additional $400.
      Sorry I do not know what Vytex paper is. I googled it and all I could find was Vytex windows.

      Thanks
      Jerry

    Jerry Built us a two story lofted barn style cabin. We are 100% satisfied with our results, Jerry is a class act, hardworking and diligent. Jerry cares about the quality of his work and takes pride in what he is doing, the proof is in the end results. Jerry also was very flexible in allowing us to use some of the building materials such as large picture windows and sliding glass doors we had been saving for our cabin.Our cabin was built on sight out at our property, Jerry was excellent about sending us pictures and texts to let us know how things were moving along. Everything about our experience was great. Honestly, Stop looking, he’s the guy!
