Featured Application: Garages & Small Storage

Tired of brushing snow off your car or having your snow blower and other equipment covered in snow? Do you have a permanent garage attached to your home that is too full to park your car in? We have your Shelter Solution!

We have cathedral buildings if you are parking a larger vehicle such as a truck or RV, and roll up doors for easier access

We also have lean-tos if space is more limited. See more information on our Lean-To page

The above picture is a 20’ x 48’ x 12’ high profile structure which is being used for maintenance equipment storage on a well know golf course. Since all of the equipment is used on a daily basis, the customer chose to go with open ends. This basically created a drive through shed. Not only is this shelter profile a very simple cover during inclement weather, it also provides cover for those involved with maintenance of the equipment. The structure was initially built on beams to simplify future relocation. The present location was convenient for the present but not the permanent location.  The high profile shape was chosen both for the interior side height and the ability this shape has to shed snow.

March Features *So Many Applications! & Who We Are*

If you’re wondering a little bit about Multi Shelter Solutions and who we are, what our values are, and our process to help you find your shelter solution, we wanted to share a few articles this month so you can get to know us.

Why Choose Us?
This page has a bit about Norm’s history and the experience and approach that we have to every project that comes to us from you! It includes our video series on Values as well as a link to the video of Norm’s Greenhouses 101 presentation. “We don’t sell you a greenhouse, we help you buy one!”

Don’t take our word for it, here’s what others are saying!
We have been so grateful for the encouraging words and testimonials that people have shared about their experiences with us, on all our social platforms, on the phone and in emails. We wanted to honour those and share them with you in one place. If you have any to add, feel free to reach out and we will share yours too!

We want to help you find your shelter solution…here’s why!
This page is an overview of why we do what we do and how. Similar to Why Choose Us? it goes into a bit more depth

We have a number of resources on our website to share all the ways and applications which Multi Shelter buildings can be used. Norm has been in the industry for over 45 years and often says there isn’t much he hasn’t seen, and loves the challenge of coming up with new solutions for creative applications.

We have done a flying building to help an apartment building construction, a building over a boat sailing on the St. Lawrence over winter, a round building for a creative workshop area…as well as all the standard uses we have!

Applications Page & Various Ideas and Options

Profiles & Space Requirements
This page discusses the various heights in from the side you can roughly expect from our buildings to help you plan. We don’t bend any steel before we get an order, so this can be slightly adjusted as well if your requirement doesn’t fall within the chart. Please contact Norm for these custom cases we can do, for no additional charge. It also discusses the shapes and pros and cons of each. Stay tuned to this page later this month for a video from Norm explaining this further

We would love to discuss your project with you and how a Multi Shelter can help fit what you need. Have a look around our site for information and pricing, as well as the descriptions of what Multi Shelters values and how we work with you on your project. We look forward to hearing from you!

As part of our new monthly giving back initiative, $240 from structure purchases in February has been donated to Foodbanks Canada

In March we are supporting Breakfast Club Canada with a portion of every purchase

Thank you for helping us make a difference

Plan Now & Enjoy the Nice Weather!

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 2019 project, and we hope to hear from you soon!

Who is Multi Shelter Solutions?

Manufacturing & distributing economical shelters for all your growing, housing and storage requirements.

Using our 43 years experience in greenhouse, shelter operations and construction, allow us to help you find creative solutions to your shelter requirements.

Proudly owned and operated by Norman Eygenraam, this family oriented business started in the Dundas, Ontario area and has moved up to Palmerston, Ontario for the last 15 years. Specializing in unique shelter construction, we don’t bend any steel before we get an order. We sit down with each customer to assess what their structure will be used for, and the location, and help you find the solution that will be most useful for your application. We have many standard variations to offer, and aren’t afraid to venture outside the box to get the right fit for you!

We don’t sell you a structure, we help you buy one!

With 43 years of experience in the industry, we don’t sell you a structure, we help you buy one!

Norm worked at a nursery operation in his 20s, at a time when cold frames were manually bent steel around a tractor rim. Later he started selling structures with a manufacturer outside Grimsby, Ontario. In 1989 he started his own greenhouse manufacturing business in Dundas Ontario. In 2005 he moved the operation to Palmerston and became Multi Shelter Solutions. The business focus has changed to include shelters for many more applications.

We bring all that experience to each and every call or email that we receive from potential and existing customers. We feel word of mouth is still the best advertising and strive to give personal attention to every request, from a small hobby shed to multiple large operations.

Our biggest selling point still remains that we don’t bend any steel before getting an order, so we are able to customize it to fit in just the right spot, or alter how it’s done for your unique request. That’s 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.

Multi Shelter Solutions offers an economical alternative with a flexibility that the larger competitors find hard to match. We have worked hard over these years to come up with a balance that provides the economy so many seek, while not sacrificing any quality of the structure or customer service. We can work with you to fit whatever budget you have in mind and publish sample prices freely for you to compare. Feel free to contact us for a custom quote for what you have in mind and we can work together to reach your goals.

With a friendly and helpful staff, we are big enough to serve you, but small enough to care & serve you well. Currently we have 7 employees & growing and are happy to help you with any questions you may have. Conversations often begin with 2 questions …

what are you trying to accomplish and what are you dealing with? We look forward to your call!

Featured Add-On: Center Pivoting Gable Vent

We wanted to remind everyone of the center pivoting gable vent that we offer as a simple solution to the challenges of venting a building.

For venting to be effective, it has to be as high as possible. This is a cost effective alternative to costly roof vents.

Part of the window swings in and part of it goes out. Because of this

  • rain is never an issue
  • the window is easy to control even in extreme winds.
  • Incoming air is always deflected up to mix with the warmest air.
  • The tubular steel construction makes it both lightweight and resist twisting over time.

A continuous rope goes from the top of the window to a pulley at the ridge, down to ground level and back up to another pulley and then to the bottom of the window. By tying the rope off to an eye bolt on a gable post, this allows for very simple control from ground level.

Please don’t hesitate to call us for more details or with any questions you have about this option for your building!
