What if I need my building next week instead of next month?
When someone orders a building we agree on a delivery date. I try to space things out so if you need a building faster, we can usually fit it in. Sometimes we have display buildings on hand that may meet your needs. We will even work extra hours to have your building finished when you want it.
How do I prepare the ground for the shed/barn?
If it is level already you don't have to do anything. We recommend road base gravel especially if it is not level to start with. All you need to prepare the site is to put down about 2 to 4” of road base gravel over filter cloth about 2' wider and longer than your building.
Do I need a cement pad?
It's not required, as the building comes on pressure treated skids and a solid 2x6 and OSB floor. However, if you want the very best that's how to do it!
Can you custom build a shed that looks different from those in your gallery?
Yes we can, if you can describe it or send a picture, we can usually do it!
What if I want to change something after my building is ordered?
Changes can be made right up to the day we actually construct your shed.
What if my gate is too narrow to get my building through?
We are able to construct buildings on site.
How long does it take to construct my building on site?
It depends on the size of course. 8x12 and smaller, less than three hours. Our record for a 12x20 tall barn was five hours. We prebuild all we can in the shop to minimize actual construction time at your site
Why does it cost more when you construct on site?
Because it takes two or three guys out of the shop and interrupts production. We keep these costs as lows as we can
Does my shed need to be anchored to the ground?
Up to 50 mph winds, no worries. Above that, yes it would be a good idea. First thing if it is an open sided horse shelter, make sure the opening is away from the prevailing winds. Several ways to do this, for horse shelters, simple metal T posts on all four corners will work. Or we use chain and cement anchors. For storage buildings it is only necessary in very windy areas.
How can I do anchor my shed to the ground?
You can use anything from steel fence posts, or rebar. Or if your building is on cement, you can use cement anchor bolts.
What are my shingle color options?
We use mostly Pabco shingles, so anything they supply.
Will my building be mouse proof?
If it must be mouse proof we recommend a steel security door. There is no other place a mouse can get in except the door. If we use our shop doors there is almost no chance of a mouse getting in, but to be absolutely sure, go with the security door.
What if I want to insulate it myself later?
That is no problem. The stud spacing’s are standard for fiberglass bats. We do however recommend that we insulate the floor if you ever plan do the rest yourself. Everything else can be done later but the floor needs to be done as we build, as it would be very difficult to do later. We charge $1.00 per Sq. Ft. to do the floor.
If I need two or more buildings will you give me a price break?
Yes we have many repeat customers and we always give a break for second or third buildings. We have one customer that owns five Miller Barns.
How many sheds have you built?
We do about 150 buildings per year and have buildings in Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, California and Idaho.
What is the ordering process?
Either email or call. We will fill out an order sheet. Ask any questions you have. We need all the details such as size, style, paint colors, if you want us to paint it, delivery address, options etc. Ordering reserves your delivery date.
When do I pay for my Miller Barn?
We ask for 50% down when you order, and the rest when we deliver.
What about warranty?
We fix anything for at least a year. If something goes wrong ever give us a call. So far, it has been shingles blowing off, or doors needing adjustment. We will fix it.
Will you take payments?
We prefer not to. We have made exceptions with one half down and the rest in two or three payments. So it doesn't hurt to ask.
