2015 Featured Building of the Year – 3rd Place
Category: Hobby Shop Division
This hobby shop sits on a beautiful home site with a custom home nearby. It’s dimensions fit nicely on the lot and the building adds a lot of versatility in a great looking package. Currently it is storing a restored 1948 John Deere tractor purchased by the building owner’s grandfather.
PostSaver wrapped posts to promote post life while maintaining the strength advantage of posts in ground and protecting the environment from contamination caused by leeching of treatment. Kynar paint to slow chalking and fading.
Post frame construction was the perfect option for this project because it offered design flexibility at a competitive rate, such as the porch construction would have been less feasible and more costly with steel.
