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!

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!

With the upcoming storms in both Ontario and the east coast forecasted, we wanted to remind everyone: it’s okay, and even preferred that the buildings have some snow around them.
This prevents the wind from getting under them and it also means that the height above the ground is less. This significantly decreases the aerodynamic lift.
As we’ve stated in our winter care articles and in the installation guide, there are things you can do to prepare your building to withstand the storms as best as possible. Taking extra steps during the ‘worst case scenario’ situations can often make all the difference and help your building stay standing.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about any of these situations. Good luck and stay warm!

There always seems to be so much pressure and panic at this time to get a building before winter. The only thing that is important to get done sooner then later is the foundation work. There will be lots of decent weather days between now and Christmas to get the job done.
If you think that it is too late to get it done and you will simply wait until next spring, please remember that you said the same thing last spring (or even a few months ago) and as usual the busyness of life got in the way. Give us a call today to see how you can get that foundation taken care of before freeze up.
For those of you who want to get the structure up now and cover it in the spring, I urge you to cover the building sooner then later for a couple of reasons. First is that there will be lots of other things vying for your time in the spring and secondly, the more snow you have on that spot which has to melt, the more moisture you will have in the building. The more moisture you have in the building the more condensation issues you will have. You want to give that ground the most time possible to dry up before you need to start using the building.
In my humble opinion, even though putting the cover on in late fall or early winter is more difficult and not pleasant, the benefits of having more time for the ground to dry, far outweigh the time spent to adjust the cover in the spring
