Ever dream of owning a farm shop where you can work comfortably in the middle of winter? A farm shop is more affordable than you might think and can be designed for many uses.
Farm shops offer both storage and maintenance space for hobby equipment, vehicles, office, repair areas and more. Store your tractor in the same building as your comfortably-designed office. Park your truck next to your farm equipment. Have a repair area so that you can do maintenance on your equipment. A farm shop gives you options and convenience. Protect and safely store your important and valuable gear.
When building your ideal farm shop, it’s worth considering how much space you think you will need in the future as well. Al Williams, Partner at Integrity Post Structures says, “Space is an important factor when designing a farm shop. It’s important to build a large enough space to suit your needs, both now and in the future. I often hear from clients that they wish they had built a bigger space.”
“The building went up quickly,” says Tim Schneider, farm shop owner. “I think I was only around for about an hour of the entire construction process. The crew was good to deal with and cleaned up after themselves. I definitely would recommend Integrity. I had no problems at all. Construction was done in a timely manner. The salesperson was great to deal with.” “Integrity built what I wanted,” says Rick Henning, another farm shop owner. “It’s a good-looking, solid building. Plus it’s warm and dry—a good place to work out of the weather. Overall, I was pleased and the crew was good to deal with. I would definitely recommend Integrity Post Structures.”
Integrity Post Structures is the only company in Canada to offer Perma-Columns which are precast concrete columns that keep wood out of the ground and allow for a concrete foundation on your post frame building. You can choose from a wide range of insulated and uninsulated doors to fit your machinery including sliding, bi-fold and overhead. Farm shops are available in cold storage, insulated or a combination that is customized to your operation. Straight walls to 24’ give you maximum usable space and the ability to park large equipment close to the wall. Full 3/4” rib (large rib) metal gives our buildings superior strength. Interlocking truss-to-post connection: our saddled truss connection gives secure fastening through the whole post. This means a better load transfer from the roof to the walls. Exclusive to Integrity, smoke wall lights have less glare than traditional wall lights. Windows are available in sliding or fixed options and metal-lined interiors mean low (or no) maintenance.
“My new heated shop turned out better than I expected,” says Integrity customer, Greg Steer. “The crew which built my building were more than just picky, you could tell that they enjoyed their job and take pride in their work.” “The crew did a great job putting up shop, great bunch of guys and good workers,” says Kelly Whitford, farm shop owner. “Showed up early, worked till evening. Thanks a lot, enjoying new shop.
