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.

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

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.

Swimming Pools as Season Extenders & More….

Installing a greenhouse over a swimming pool is a cost effective and simple way to significantly increase the use of your investment.

Even with an unheated pool, you will be extending the swimming time by a minimum of three months. This is accomplished due to the greater heat efficiency which is created by the double poly cover.

During the swim time you will have up to 75% decrease in chlorine use and a 75% decrease in sweeping time.

The roll up sides will make the temperature comfortable during the day time with adequate ventilation. By closing the roll up sides in the evening you will eliminate the cool evening breezes and control the bugs.

With the wide variety of shapes and sizes available, almost every pool can be covered. The experience can be further enhanced with adding a spa or change house area. A wide variety of ends are available depending on the aesthetics or requirements.
