Portable Building FAQ's
Can I purchase a shed online?
We can definitely do it all through email so it is just as convenient for you. We don’t offer purchases directly through our website due to the customizations of your building. We like to work one on one with you so that you receive exactly what you are expecting. Our work orders and rent to own documents also require a signature, which can be a digital signature.

Do I need a permit for my portable shed if it is on skids?
We cover the cost of all permits for the department of transportation and special permits pertaining to oversized loads. Due to the vast area we cover we ask that our customers connect with their jurisdiction's permitting office for information pertaining to their particular area. If there is is cost or permit required, it is the customers responsibility.
Most jurisdictions do have maximum sizes allowed with out obtaining a permit. For example, the city of Leavenworth, Ks doesn't require a building permit if it is under 120 square feet. Most locations will have building permit information found on their website under planning and zoning.
Does my shed have to go on a concrete pad?
Our portable sheds are built on 40 year CCA treated ground contact skids. You can put your shed on a concrete pad if your jurisdiction states it must, however our sheds are designed to sit right on the ground. Some customers have yards that don't drain well and will use 12" stepping pavers at the corners of smaller sheds to prevent sinking. Another option for yards that don't drain well is using AB3 gravel, the limestone hardens and creates a stable foundation.
How do you get a prebuilt shed into my yard?
Our drivers do have state of the art equipment to ensure that damage doesn't occur to your yard. They will unload in a driveway or the street and then they use a hydraulic mule with an extra set of tires on the opposite end to roll the shed into place. Due to our sheds being prebuilt and delivered as you see them, a 1' clearance per side in addition the width of the building, is needed to get a shed into your yard. Keep in mind that our 12' and 16' wide structures are measured eave to eave per the department of transportation. There are occasions when an exception can be made and will be evaluated on a case to case basis. It is also important to be aware of overhead electrical lines and low lying tree limbs.
What is the largest size prebuilt shed for sale?
The majority of our prebuilt sheds can be built in sizes up to 16x50 for both out right purchases and if it is rent to own. We can also build them up to 16x54 if it is an out right purchase but it is not available for rent to own. Out right purchases can be credit card, cash, check or financed through a financial institution.
What is the best way to insulate my shed?
Our builder offers two types of insulation that can be mixed and matched to suit your individual needs. All of insulation is R-15. We offer traditional fiberglass batt insulation in the walls and ceiling along with Astro Armour in the floors. Astro Armour is a vapor barrier, radiant heat reflector and does have a woven technology insulation. It also acts as a tyvek by blocking drafts. The other option is 1" closed cell spray foam insulation which can be done to the floors, walls and ceilings. Keep in mind doing all three will create an extra tight seal and is not recommended.
