We build garages of all sizes, from pre-fab single wide units to 2 & 3 car garages built on site. One and two story options available. All our garages are stick frame, we do not offer pole barns or carports.

How are the buildings delivered?

Our buildings are generally delivered with a pickup truck and shed trailer. The trailer is on hydraulics allowing it to move 90 degrees without moving the truck. We also have a shed mover (The Mule), which is great for getting buildings in tight spots that are hard to access with a truck and trailer. If your site is not accessible, we offer kit builds that can be brought in and erected on your site.

Can I live in your buildings?

Every town has different requirements. It is the customer’s responsibility to obtain all necessary permits. Amish Barn Company will gladly provide any specs necessary for our storage sheds.
All our pre-built units are intended for storage or recreational use only. We do offer built on-site structures that can be designed to meet your local towns requirement for a potential full time dwelling. Always check with your local code to make sure you have all the facts before purchasing a unit intended for living purposes.

What type of foundation do I need?

The ideal site preparation includes the customer having a #2 crushed stone pad installed either by a local gravel contractor, or by the customer. This pad should be two feet bigger than the building on each side (four feet on door side if having a ramp installed). The purpose of the crushed stone is to create a level surface with good drainage.

Do I need a building permit?

In many places, structures under 144 sq. ft. do not require a building permit. However, every town/county has different requirements. It is the customer’s responsibility to check with their town/county and obtain all the necessary permits. Amish Barn Company will gladly provide any building specs necessary. Building code officials will also be able to advise you on setback requirements for property lines.
