What are the advantages of owning a shed built by Country Cabins?
We begin with a strong foundation, 4" x 6" notched runners and Weathermatch flooring. We also offer lots of options and can customize your building to fit your needs and taste. Our dealers keep many sheds in stock, so you can walk in at any time, pick the shed you want and have it delivered within days! Better yet, you can sit down with one of our experienced and knowledgeable shed experts and design your own customized shed.
Are your buildings finished and livable?
Check local codes and zoning requirements regarding sizes, permanent foundations, and accessory dwellings. Our buildings—like standard hunting cabins—are an exterior shell that can be finished out and customized by the owner to transform them into tiny homes or vacation cabins. Our large hunting cabins have more square footage than a typical tiny home. Many customers choose to modify their buildings to their exact specifications. They install appliances and wire the buildings to be up-to-code with a local electrician. Local plumbers outfit our buildings with proper installation of waste disposal systems and water supply lines. We recommend digging a trench under the cabin where the sewer will be run and brought through the bathroom. It is recommended to dig the trench before the cabin delivery to eliminate hand digging. It allows the cabin to be set on the ground. It won’t have to be blocked up to get underneath. Local builders often add kitchens inside. Each building is easily heated and cooled.
How do you deliver your sheds?
At Country Cabins we deliver our buildings up to 50 miles from the dealer location free of charge. While delivering we use a Shed Mule, a forklift designed to maneuver tight spaces and move across the ground without damaging your yard or structure. No matter what type of building we are transporting our qualified staff make keeping your building and property in pristine shape their number one priority.
How do I maintain my storage building?
Your new Country Cabin building was handcrafted for you by our skilled craftsmen and requires very little maintenance. Below are recommendations to help you maintain the beauty and structural integrity of your building.
When mowing or wind-whipping around your building, be careful not to scrape or hit it with the lawn mower or weed wacker.
Since your building is a portable structure, and is not set on a frost-free foundation, movement and/or settling can occur with ground freezing and thawing. This results in uneven doors, which may become hard to open and close. If this happens, you can use a car jack to lift the structure on the low side and place shims under the blocks to raise the building. This is a simple fix and will ensure the doors operate properly.
Country Cabins uses a high-quality paint, that with proper care, can last for more than 20 years. Touch-up paint can be ordered directly from the manufacturer. To find the original paint color, reference the order form of your building when ordering paint. When you have the color, call 717-299-6771 to order your touch-up paint.
Keep dirt from the sides of the building so water can drain away freely from the building. This will keep the building clean and dry. You do not want the building to be wet for extended periods of time as this may cause damage.
