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

Large Storage Buildings

Great for Hay Storage, Equipment Storage, Animal Protection, and anything other valuable investments you need to keep protected.

Just because it can be outside, doesn’t mean it should!

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 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. It is 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.

AVAILABLE OPTIONS

  • Custom widths, heights & hoop spacing
  • Roof vents & forced ventilation packages
  • Various types & sizes of doors with end framing priced separately
  • 8mm polycarbonate sheeting for roof and/or ends
  • Roll up sides for natural ventilation & reduced condensation, used when extra drying capacity or air movement is required
  • Cross ties for added rigidity, support or other storage

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!
