How to choose doors and windows?

  • Our sliding doors are economical and you get the benefit of a door opening to the bottom of the truss. Overhead doors require at least 1′ between the top of the door to the bottom of the truss. However, they seal off better than the sliding doors. Standard residential overhead doors are 9′ wide and 7′ or 8′ high. Our standard windows are: – 3′ wide X 2′ high – 4′ wide X 3 high

How do I finish the inside of my building?

  • Standard building packages have an unfinished interior with your dirt or gravel as the floor. There are many different methods to insulate and finish the interior of your new building. We offer a number of different insulation options, including 1/4 inch Soley installed directly under the roof to eliminate condensation (the insulation factor is R-14 on the roof and R-10 on the sidewalls). If you intend to put your own ceiling in at a later date, make sure you add in the cost for a higher loading on the bottom chord of the roof trusses. We also offer concrete floors and pads.
