We 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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
*edit, ACORN conference for 2015 has ended last week, but you can find us back again there next year, and at other Organic Events around Ontario as well, Eco Farmers-December, Grey Bruce Farmers day-Eco Farm day-January, Guelph-January, Eco Farm Day-January

We are pleased to be able to connect with our new and existing customers every year at a trade shows to answer questions and display some of our structures and parts we use. There’s something unique about face to face contact whenever possible. Unfortunately that also means time away from the office.
We always do our best during this busy time to keep up with all requests and deliveries in a timely manner and we sincerely appreciate your patience.
As fall comes knocking, so too will winter soon enough. This always increases demands for delivery times before any weather events. We recommend getting your order in as soon as possible to avoid any extra challenges. As always, we do our best to accommodate everyone’s needs; however, please be advised, delivery times are increased between September-December.
We look forward to helping you with your next project and answering any outstanding questions you may have.

Multi Shelters offers a variety of shipping options to save our customers money on their buildings. We have now shipped structures to all 10 Canadian provinces, as well as the Yukon and 10 States, including Maine, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Nevada, Connecticut, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.
First and foremost, we offer shipping with our truck wherever possible. We still have enough deliveries to make to the east coast of Canada that we can save you even more money with our Multi Shelter Solutions truck!
We also have a new shipping crate that makes longer distance shipping with Manitoulin Transport more cost effective. Shipping longer distances with our new shipping crate certainly has added possibilities while maintaining quality, convenience and economy.
An added dimension is the rail service that Manitoulin Transport offers to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. By going via rail to Winnipeg and then road to Saskatoon, a recent customer is saving $400 on his freight bill.
Did you know that in many cases the difference in the exchange rate between Canada and the U.S. pretty well covers the freight? In most cases for the north eastern U.S. the currency exchange is about equal to the freight. We are now looking into using our truck to deliver to some of the North East United States as well to save our customers even more!
Still made and manufactured in Palmerston, ON. Call today to find out more!

While we are enjoying the nice weather of the summer, it’s always a great time to be thinking of your late summer and fall projects. Often we hear people rueful that they were not able to get their structure up before snowfall since winter always sneaks up. What better time to plan for those projects than now!
We have many wonderful weather days for installing, rather than having to settle with a less than ideal day to put the building up and especially fasten the cover down. Friends and neighbours would likely be more willing to help as well.
These buildings are great for storing the hay and other equipment for your farm. They can cover your swimming pool to extend your season into late fall/early winter. Park your RV, boat or other fun summer toys over the winter to keep them protected. Plan for a garage so this will be the year you don’t need to brush snow off your vehicle. There are so many great uses, call us today to discuss your project requirements and out there ideas!
The International Plowing Match is on our doorstep this year in Harriston and the fall will certainly be a busy time here at Multi Shelters. We would love to help you with your 2016 project, and we hope to hear from you soon!
