Featured Product: RV Cathedral Shelters

tyser doneWe get many requests from customers who would like an economical way to protect their investment in their RV or trailer.

The straight wall of the MSS Cathedral shaped structure creates a perfect solution for those who need head space more then floor space.

Even though this is our most snow resistant model, the hoops are placed slightly closer than typical due to the wind loads.

The opaque white tarp or white plastic cover lets in a good level up light while still protecting stored vehicles from fading and other harmful effects.

The simplicity of the required base allows you to keep your options open. A 6×6 (or equivalent) timber pegged to the ground is all that is required. This allows easy relocation if circumstances change.

Usually the back wall is framed in with studs and covered with one of our durable covers. The “finishing touch” can be a simple roll up door which allows the whole end to open up. When finishing the ends the should be a small vent near each peak to allow the building to get rid of excess moisture.

Organic Greenhouses/Shelters-uses and benefits

There are many benefits to having a greenhouse structure for organic growing and housing. They are often used a season extender for protecting crops from the elements, blight, and fungus. Since Organic growers and farmers do not use pesticides, this type of protection is often required for some of the more sensitive crops.smaller high profile

The structures are easy to move to allow the expansion of the growing area.These structures can easily help to give you the opportunity to grow more crops in a limited area. What many of our customers also do, particularly with Hanley Caterpillar structures, is start growing the early crops under the protection of the structure, and as the crop is stable enough, they move the structure to be able to start the next planting.

Knight Hanley Structure

Our structures are also used for organic livestock raising to ensure the animals have a healthy, safe and protected environment out of the elements. They are versatile structures, and only require the changing of clear to white plastic for the various uses. The environment allows the animals to have sunlight, but still get the shade they require.

The combination of the double layer of plastic, roll up sides, and inflator fan, on both the greenhouse and livestock shelters, helps to reduce condensation and keep the structure ventilated. We are excited to be working on a solar powered fan option for those off grid customers or if the structure is out in the field away from electricity as we know many of our organic growers and farmers are in these situations.

Giving back to Food Banks Article

This is always worth a repost to acknowledge Hunger Week and raise awareness. Every day, thousands go hungry and need to access food banks. They need fresh, healthy food as well. Multi Shelters takes these causes seriously, and we do our best to help out where we can. If you work with a project that could use some of our support, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we can see what we can do!

We thought we’d share with you an article we recently found on the New Brunswick Food Security website http://www.nbfoodsecurity.ca/2013/11/

Multi Shelter Solutions helps local food bank extend the season!

(Source: ACORN blog)

ACORN conferences are a fun and educational way to connect with other organic producers and consumers from across Atlantic Canada and beyond.  Stronger connections lead to stronger communities and a greater organic resilience in the region.

photo(3)Norm  Eygenraam proved this at their Greenhouse Conference last February.  Norm, the President of Multi ShelterSolutions was so impressed by theWest End Food Bank’s Garden of Hope Project he offered to donate a greenhouse to the project.  The Garden had just completed construction on a new greenhouse and so thoughtfully asked if they could pass on the generous gift to another food project in the area. Foods of the Fundy Valley, a non-profit organization dedicated to the production and consumption of local goods in Albert County, gratefully accepted the greenhouse for their garden club at theRiverside Consolidated School in Riverside-Albert.  Now that their growing season has been extended, they plan to share their bounty by cooking hot lunches for the kids, and donating any excess to the Shepody Food Bank.

We at ACORN would like to say an official and public THANK YOU!  to Norm and his generous contribution to food production in New Brunswick. Be sure to chat with Norm and the rest of our supportive Trade Show partners at the Delta Beauséjour – November 20th – 22nd.www.acornconference.org.

 

Around the Web – Giving Back

we are always pleased and surprised to find wonderful articles around the internet mentioning Multi Shelters, and here’s one I came across today that I thought I’d share with you! Thank you for the mention endchildpoverty.ca! wonderful initiatives you are doing! https://www.endchildpoverty.ca/share-your-news.html

 

Norm Eygenraam, of Palmerston United Church in Ontario, is the owner of Multi-Shelter Solutions. On May 10, 2016, in partnership with the Breakfast Club of Canada, he presented a 20’x48′ greenhouse to the Johnny Therriault School, located in the Aroland First Nations community. Norm felt very blessed to be part of the unbelievable excitement surrounding this project. The greenhouse, in addition to actually growing more fresh food for the community, will also serve as a teaching tool to show the children how to grow food. In his address, Norm focused especially on hope and gratitude. Hope in knowing that there is a brighter future and that there are people out there who care.

​Norm and his wife also purchased gardening books for the teachers and children to use as a resource. As well, they contributed plant starter kits (mini greenhouses) so that each classroom was able to begin growing plants immediately. In addition, he brought along a supply of easy-to-grow vegetables, including green and yellow beans, peas and onions. Finally, he provided 6 very large bags of compost to help the children build up the soil. Thank you Norm for your inspirational example of generosity, compassion and caring.

Protect Your Equipment With Economical Storage

high profile

We have a variety of shapes and sizes to suit your equipment storage needs.

Our buildings can have very straight sidewalls for more interior space with or without putting it a wall.

The recommended covering is a 12 mil woven plastic tarp that is a three layer white, or green canvas. This will prevent excessive wear and tear on the cover if equipment is bumping into it.

Putting your equipment in a storage building reduces fading by the sun and helps your investment last longer

Please see our Large Storage page for more information and don’t hesitate to call us with any questions regarding this application.

George Mainguy Structure

Structures on Blocks or Shipping Containers

Storage containers and over sized concrete blocks are the economical solution for needing to elevate structures to create more storage capacity.

One consideration is when the product being stored does not lend itself to stacking, such as salt, sand or soil, there is the added dimension of outward push on the wall. Not only does the pile push outwardly, but an operator scooping the product will create even greater push.

Storage containers and over sized concrete blocks are the economical solution for such a situation. The weight and the stability which both the containers and blocks give, eliminates the need to anchor into the ground.

Containers are often simply put on the ground.

When going more then two layers with the blocks, there should be a concrete pad or special preparation of the soil to provide stability.

When choosing this foundation method, it is important to consider how and where the shelter will shed water and snow.

The top of the wall or container must be sealed to the possibility of moisture going inside.

The other thing that must be given proper consideration is that the shelter is able to deal with the extra wind load created by elevating the shelter this much.

In most of these installations, the wind load on a building is at least double of what it would be if mounted on the ground.
