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 10 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 flexibilty 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 6 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!

Igloo Round Structures

circle1

 We have a unique structure that we have started offering more often. It is a round dome structure, with our standard hoops around a circular ridge piece. We have taken to calling this our “Canadian Igloo” Structure. Plastic is put on in separate pieces so it’s not for the new greenhouse assembler. We have them being used for everything from seminar areas to storage, whatever you would like a unique application for!
