There are numerous applications where additional headspace takes priority over floor space. Multi Shelter Solutions has a CATHEDRAL shaped structure which is the result of simply taking a regular profile arch and reversing what is typically the top and bottom. This is another example of how our innovation creates a “custom” structure at standard pricing. This profile is our most snow resistant model. The 4 basic sizes combined with any length allow virtually any vehicle to be covered economically.
As in the above photograph, the cover is usually opaque, to allow light to come in but not sunlight which would allow fading and other harmful effects. The base is typically a pressure treated 6×6 or railroad tie pegged to the ground. Rather then construct large, expensive access doors, many of our customers build a simple closed end with small man door. This is dismantled during the operating season and reconstructed for the winter time.
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.
- 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
- Cross ties for added rigidity, support or other storage
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!

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!

We 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.

We are pleased to be able to connect with our new and existing customers every year at a trade shows to answer questions and display some of our structures and parts we use. There’s something unique about face to face contact whenever possible. Unfortunately that also means time away from the office.
We always do our best during this busy time to keep up with all requests and deliveries in a timely manner and we sincerely appreciate your patience.
As fall comes knocking, so too will winter soon enough. This always increases demands for delivery times before any weather events. We recommend getting your order in as soon as possible to avoid any extra challenges. As always, we do our best to accommodate everyone’s needs; however, please be advised, delivery times are increased between September-December.
We look forward to helping you with your next project and answering any outstanding questions you may have.
