What We Do
All our shelters are built on oversized skids.
We are using sturdy non-toxic rough cut lumber
(pine, spruce and/or fir).
The siding is made of a double layer of 1" planks.
We use galvanized metal sheets for the roofs.
Our default color is Galvanized Aluminum (silver), but we also have access to a wide range of colors
(color matching is an option).
All large shelters are assembled in your field in a day or two.
Single and Double shelters can be delivered fully assembled into your field. Or if access is an issue, we can also do the assembly in the field (for a reasonable surcharge).
Regardless, we always leave the site clean - no left over scrap wood, no nails on the ground, no garbage! (Okay, maybe a little sawdust...)
The shelters are delivered for free within 50km of Cochrane.
Beyond that distance, we charge a cost per kilometer to account for extra time and fuel. We assume your field is accessible with sufficiently wide gate for a truck and trailer. If not, we can sometimes manually haul the material by hand for a reasonable surcharge.
Horses, wind and snow will lean on our shelters, so we built them to last.
Every panel is braced diagonally to ensure the building stays straight and square. Even if you decide to pull it across the field with a tractor!
And all our shelters include "kickboards" on the inside
Some of our customers like to move their shelters around and prefer not anchoring them. For that purpose, we even include tow holes on the base skids to quickly attach the chains. In some cases, not anchoring them is ok, as our shelters are heavy enough to defy normal winds.
However, we strongly recommend that your shelters be anchored to the ground in windy areas.
Because soil/grounds differ from field to field (rocks, gravel, loam, clay, etc), anchoring time can vary greatly and is not included in the base shelter price. We can anchor your shelter for you, but this is done on a Time + Material fee base. Prior to anchoring, you must have your utility lines located and flagged in the vicinity of the shelter (electricity, water, natural gas, telephone, cable, irrigation, septic field, etc).
