Project Profile: Storage Shed and Man Cave All-In-One

Some of our favorite projects at FS Construction Services involve the combination of practical application and customer imagination. It’s an exciting time when a customer has an idea for a custom building because we know it will test our creativity and ability to deliver a final product that matches and exceeds their unique vision.

Such was the case recently when a customer wanted to double up on the usefulness of his new pole barn. His concept was to build a machine/vehicle storage shed that was also comfortable enough to function as a good old fashioned ‘man cave’. With his input, plus guidance and recommendations from our team of professionals, the final plans were a perfect combination of form, function and fun. We designed and constructed a 36’ x 48’ x 16’ Walters structure with a 12’ porch that wraps around three sides of the building.

We worked with the customer to choose the right exterior, a color combination of dark grey wainscoting and light grey .28-gauge steel siding. Additionally, IECC-compliant Raynor overhead doors were installed. These rugged doors allow easy entrance for our customer’s camper, tractor, Bobcat, ATVs, and more, while also providing thermal insulation and preventing heat loss through the doors. The porch columns were constructed with a polypropylene material to eliminate structure deterioration and increase the building’s strength and longevity. Finally, lights and ceiling fans in the wrap-around porch completed our customer’s vision for comfort and hospitality.

When the FS Construction Services crew completed the project, our satisfied customer had a finished pole barn structure that included a 16’ x 24’ kitchenette and recreational space plus a loft and bathroom that completed the finished product he had imagined.
