These buildings are not industrial grade shelters and, as such, some caution must be exercised under some winter storm conditions….
Please see our Winter Care & Maintenance Page and the WINTER CARE & other key points page in our installation guide for additional information
Our structures are designed in a gothic shape with a slippery cover to be lightweight and snow resistant. This encourages the snow to slide off quickly.
This is not an industrial high snow load building. We do our best to always point out applications where the capacity of the structure is being compromised. Extra hoops or thicker steel are an economical way to increase wind and snow load capacity. We take pride in the sturdy shelters we manufacture and supply, but must point out that we cannot warranty against weather conditions.
Snow removal, when occasionally required, is a simple task. DO NOT GO INSIDE A BUILDING WHERE THERE HAS BEEN OBVIOUS STRESS!

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.
We also have many years experience in coaching winter installations and can help you prepare. Contact us today for your shelter quote and to get in on our next delivery run your way!

Just a quick note that we are now starting to book into November for our orders, so if you are planning to get your building before snow, please make sure to get the order in soon to secure your place in the queue. When we go out to ACORN conference on the east coast in November is usually our final east coast shipment of the year, depending if the weather holds out, so please factor that into your planning. We look forward to helping you with your Structure project!
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 fall is always a busy time here at Multi Shelters. We would love to help you with your 2017 project, and we hope to hear from you soon!

Here at Multi Shelter Solutions, we do our best to provide flexibility in choices, quality of service and excellent value for the money. Due to some significant increases we have received on the galvanized tubular steel that our hoops are manufactured from, we have needed to raise our prices, effective immediately. The prices that you will see on the current application web pages are the correct and up to date ones.
We have also updated the sample prices for replacing the roof covers to the website as well so that you will be able to anticipate those costs down the road. These are only meant as examples, and as always you’re free to give us a call for your specific project.
Finally, it is with a sense of amazement and gratitude that we see how many people are using our website as their primary research tool for figuring out their next building purchase. There has been over 150,000 views now in approximately 28 months. Your feedback is appreciated!
Thank you for your patience and loyalty. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you on your next shelter project!

Here at Multi Shelters we can work with you to fit whatever budget you have in mind for your project and publish sample prices freely for you to compare. We have found a balance that provides the economy so many seek, while not sacrificing any quality of the structure or customer service. Feel free to contact us for a custom quote for what you have in mind. We can work together to reach your goals.
Our biggest niche still remains that we don’t bend any steel before getting an order. We are able to customize it to fit in just the right spot, or alter how it’s done for your unique request. We bring over 43 years of experience to each and every call or email that we receive from potential and existing customers and welcome standard as well as outside the box projects.
That factor is how we’ve come up with our “igloo” structure, the airplane hangars, our “flying” greenhouse that was lifted onto an apartment building, and more! We pride ourselves on being able to help you find your best shelter solution, no matter how “out there” an application may seem. We’ve seen pretty much everything and look forward to your project ideas and challenges.
Check out our application pages to get you started and start the ideas flowing, there’s many to choose from. Thank you for your interest in Multi Shelters and we look forward to hearing from you in 2016!
