Animals thrive in a greenhouse type environment benefiting from
- being dry
- being out of the wind and in the light, without being in the direct sun
- The cushion of air created by the inflator fan will reduce the condensation
- Roll up sides are added for easy natural ventilation. Usually customers attach a snow fence or netting to the inside of the arch so the animals do not come in contact with the cover or run away when the sides are rolled up. A short wall is also an option.
- A white tarp covering may be used in situations where the animals are going in and out on their own accord when they require shelter.

We understand there is a rush on to get your structures before the ground is frozen and snow is here, but it’s not too late! We are operating with approximately a 4 week turn around right now, which takes us to late November/early December.
We often recommend getting your base in place as soon as you can, whether that’s having us send you anchor posts before delivery, or laying down the beam and foundation with the t-post anchors to be ready once you get the shipment of hoops and other materials.

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.

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.

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.

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.
