Chicken Coops

HOW MANY BIRDS CAN I FIT IN A CHICKEN COOP?


Our standard size coops can fit up to 24 birds in the nesting area, while our mini-coop will house 6-12 birds.




HOW MANY BIRDS CAN FIT IN A NESTING BOX?


Our nesting boxes can fit 4 birds, so a box set can hold a total of 16 birds.




HOW MANY BIRDS WILL THE ROOST HOLD?


Our roosts can hold up to 12 birds.




WHAT IS THE HEAVY DUTY 2” X 4” PANEL WIRING USED FOR?


Our heavy duty panel wiring is primarily used if the customer is using the coop as a dog kennel. This is also the case for our Solid Decking for Aviary option.




DO THE LARGER COOPS HAVE THE VENT ON TOP LIKE THE MINI COOPS?


Unfortunately, no. Our Mini Coops are the only coops with vents on top.





Storage Buildings

DO YOUR STORAGE BUILDINGS COME WITH A WARRANTY?


Absolutely! All new storage building orders come standard with our industry-leading 10-year warranty.

Please note: all used or discounted buildings come AS-IS and have no warranty. For more information regarding our warranty guidelines, please visit our Warranty page.




DO I NEED A PERMIT FOR MY STORAGE BUILDING?


This answer depends entirely on your location and the city and county codes in place at the time. We highly recommend that you call those in charge to find the answers you need. It is also a good idea to check with your HOA.




WHAT IF A STORAGE BUILDING WILL NOT FIT THROUGH MY GATE?


It is important that you allow 2’ feet on either side and above the product for delivery clearance.




HOW DO I PREPARE MY SITE FOR THE NEW BUILDING?


Customers are responsible for providing a clear path to the site. The site will need to be reasonably level - within 1'. Our buildings are built with treated skids and can be set directly on the ground. Treated blocks are provided at no charge to the level building.





Greenhouses

HOW DO YOU KEEP A GREENHOUSE WARM WITHOUT ELECTRICITY?


We recommend non-digital oil-filled electric space heaters because they are reliable, long-lasting and economical. All our greenhouses include an auto-vent that does not require electricity. The opener has a metal cylinder containing a mineral that expands when heated. This happens at 80°-90°. This pushes a piston that opens the vent. As the temperature cools, the mineral shrinks and a spring closes the vent and resets the piston. The opening and closing of the vent gradually allows just the right amount of airflow for cooling.




WHAT PRODUCE CAN I GROW IN A GREENHOUSE OVER WINTER?


There are numerous fruits and vegetables you can house in your greenhouse. Here is some of our favorites:

  • Cabbage
  • Kale
  • Potatoes
  • Spinach
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Asparagus
  • Citrus Fruits




WHAT SIZE GREENHOUSE IS BEST FOR ME?


This depends on how many plants you want to grow and your location. Mini-Greenhouses are great for the typical backyard, while our standard greenhouse is ideal for light commercial use.




WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE CUSTOM ELECTRICAL PACKAGE?


Again, depending on the size of the building, packages are designed specifically for size and use. Exhaust fans, thermostats, heating thermostats, overhead lights, and electrical outlets are all part of this great package.
