We do all of the construction of the sheds at your location. Shelter Sheds are engineered to withstand the weather conditions along the Front Range. We have designed our sheds to the livestock industries recommended standard depth of 12 feet. The 12 feet depth of the shed is important because it allows livestock to get back into the shed and get away from the weather. The depth adds additional protection, which is the ultimate goal. The sheds are ONLY built in four sizes. Those sizes are (12 x 12), (12 x 24), (12 x 36) & (12 x 48). Shelter Sheds are designed to accommodate horses and other livestock but they are also used for hay, tack and equipment storage. The standard height of the roof is 8 feet at the peak with a sloping roof down to a 7 feet back wall. The 2 feet overhang off the front, drops down about a foot from the peak. The sheds are made from 2” square steel tubing welded together to create the frame. The frame is covered with 29 gauge corrugated metal siding. All sheds come with 23/32 OSB wood that is 4 feet high around the inside of the shed. Also, angle iron covering the top and front edges comes standard. This protects the edges from livestock chewing on them and also offers protection from the weather. The portable sheds are strongly anchored to the ground with engineered stakes. The metal siding colors to choose from are listed on the Color Chart page. The five options we offer to customize sheds are listed below.
The five customizing options available are:
- A two feet overhang off the front can be added for extra protection & style. This is the most common option added. People like the eye appeal that the overhang adds to the shed. The overhang also assists in keeping wind and snow from blowing over the shed and back into the shed as well as blocking the rain, snow and sun from getting into the front of the shed.
- Dividing walls (full height or half height walls) can be added to divide the shed to create individual stalls or to divide the shed to create separate hay/equipment storage. The dividing walls are only available to be installed from the existing upright posts every 12’. (Does not allow dividing the shed lengthwise in half on a 12×36 shed)
- A partial enclosing front wall can be added for protection from weather in all directions. The prices reflect up to a 12 feet wall but front walls can be any length. The front wall comes standard with 23/32 OSB wood that is 4 feet high on the interior wall like the rest of the shed. The sides and back wall can NOT be removed or altered (except for the height) only the front wall layout can be customized. We do not make any kind of doors or install them except the 3 feet man door found on the tack rooms. However, we can weld a gate in a four or six feet opening in a front wall, and with a full dividing wall added, this would create a stall or hay room.
- The roof height can be raised 1 foot to create 9 feet at the peak sloping back to an 8 feet back wall. (the overhang drops down about a foot from the peak) This option is used for tall horses or hay and tractor storage. It is recommended to measure tractor height and verify clearance.
- Add in a tack room of 8 or 12 feet wide by 12 feet deep. The tack room is built inside of the shed size chosen. They do not add length to the shed. The 8 feet tack room is only available on the 12 x 24 shed.
Steps to ordering Shelter Sheds:
Click on the “Pricing/Estimate” tab to fill out the form and get an instant estimate. An official quote with an estimated completion date will then be emailed to you. The sheds are built on site, so the estimated completion date is based upon having GOOD working weather.
The completion of the shed building usually ranges from 2 to 6 weeks (depending upon our schedule) once the deposit is received. The actual time that we are at the job site is 2 mornings for a few hours each time and usually a few days apart depending on the current schedule and weather conditions. A few days prior to coming to your location for construction, we will call to coordinate times. The first trip is to set the frame up and the second trip is to finish building the shed. On the first trip, we will need someone there to show us where the shed will be located. On the second trip we will need someone there to verify that the shed is positioned correctly before staking it down and to pay the final payment. Installation of the shed does not include ground leveling. However, the sheds do not require the ground to be perfectly level. They sit on top of the ground and are staked down with engineered stakes.
The sheds will initially be built on your property, however they are portable and can be relocated after they are built. The sheds can later be loaded on a trailer and hauled to another location. We don’t relocate sheds but there are companies that do offer that service. We Do Not do any kind of repairs, add ons, re-sheeting, demolition, or relocation to any existing shed or barn. Our business/service is the construction of brand new Shelter Sheds. Therefore we do not make a kit for the customer to assemble or offer the option for customers to pick up a completely constructed shed at our location. The type of shed we build is also referred to as a loafing shed, 3 sided shed, run in shed, portable horse barn, portable livestock shed, etc.
