As pictured here, our storage buildings can be set on a knee-wall or posts to give more sidewall and overall height to the structure. Our 30-foot wide building is a great size for hay or equipment storage (other widths available). It has a center height of 15′ and is available in any length that you may need. 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. The white is more common and what MSS recommends because it lets in light, creating a more usable workspace inside, as well as not absorbing the heat, which creates a longer life expectancy. The dark green has faster deterioration as it absorbs the heat, and thus a shorter life expectancy. Both are UV treated to keep the sun from bleaching the contents.
TARP vs. PLASTIC
The big difference is that with TARP you get extremely high tear resistance with good annual cover cost, and with PLASTIC you get slightly less life span but even less annual cover cost.

- We offer 12 mil woven tarp in white or green
- White lets in quite a bit of light but no sunshine so it’s cooler in the summer, warmer in the winter. White has an 8-10 year expected life span.
- Green absorbs quite a bit of heat, which makes it about 10°C warmer in the summer. With little or no light penetration it is 10°C colder in the winter. Green has a 6 year expected life span.
- 6 mil white plastic comes with a 4 year warranty against deterioration by the sun. Single layer plastic has a 5 year expected life span. Replacement cost is about 1/3 that of tarp.
- Double layer plastic with air between is available as a way to stiffen buildings in severely windy areas. Double layer has a 7-8 yr expected life span. Package includes inflator fan.
