Contact us today and ask to speak with a Client Advisor for assistance in determining your building size and type.

*Additional sizes are available upon request.

Design Your Building

Customize your building with the help of a Client Advisor. They will provide you with a preliminary drawing package to help customize your building. After finalizing your design, you will receive a quote and 3D representation of your building.


After finalizing your design, we will provide you with a contract to sign and the deposit amount that must be paid to secure your building and move to the next stage.

Step 2: Pre-Construction

Engineered Plans Drawn

After finalizing your design with your Client Advisor, we will submit your preliminary plan to our drafting department. Our drafting department will then custom design your building in CAD and provide you with engineered and stamped drawings to submit to your town.

Permit Approval

After receiving your plans, you will be able to apply for your neccessary permits with your town’s building department.

Most towns offer online and in-person services.

Site Work Completed

Once your building project has been approved you are able to begin preparations for delivery. Site work must be completed before building delivery, including access to the site, foundation and concrete slab poured.

Step 3: Manufacture

We order your material and hand-craft your unique building kit using the methods below.
