Frequently Asked Questions About Portable Buildings
The following are a few frequently asked questions about portable buildings.

Where can I put a portable building?
Portable buildings such as storage sheds and temporary garages can be installed virtually anywhere, so long as the ground is level. Some portable buildings can even be attached to homes. You will need to check building codes and local ordinances to ensure you do not need a special permit for your portable building. When ordering a portable building, remember that fences, trees, and other objects could get in the way come installation day.

What do I need to do to prepare for my new portable building?
Level ground to place your portable building on is essential. Most people want a solid floor for their new structure, so laying concrete or gravel is recommended. Remember to allow enough time before the building arrives for the concrete to harden or the gravel to settle. Even though your new storage shed or barn is considered a portable building, you will want to make sure it is stable. A sturdy mount or an anchor can prevent it from moving around.

Can I hook up utilities to my portable building?
Most portable buildings could have utilities in them, but your prefabricated shed or carport will probably need some extra work before it is ready for water or electricity. A licensed electrician should always deal with installing power cables and outlets. One way to power your portable building is to run wiring from a permanent structure. Save time and money in the long run by having your electrician install outlets and lighting systems when the wiring is run.

If you need a building for storage, residential, or commercial purposes that can be relocated or will be ready quickly for temporary use, a portable building is an excellent option. Before you purchase a temporary building, there are a few things you should consider.

  • What is the building going to be used for?
    When you buy a portable building, it is important to know how you are planning to use the space so you can make sure the structure will meet your needs. For example, if the building is going to be used for office space or as a classroom, you may need a bathroom inside.

  • How often will the building be relocated?
    When you are buying a portable building it is essential to know how often you plan to move it. If you buy a mobile home you are able to relocate it if needed, while a prefab or modular home cannot be moved from its location. Also, some construction sheds or storage barns are designed to be more moveable than others.

  • What size does the building need to be?
    Prefabricated and mobile homes come in a variety of sizes. If you are looking for a residential structure, you will want to consider how many bedrooms and bathrooms you need. If you are using the building for storage or on a construction site, you will need to decide if a small metal shed or a large barn is more appropriate for the materials you are storing.

  • How much is the building going to cost?
    Depending on your needs, it may be more affordable to lease a structure than to buy. Also, construction materials like metal, wood, or plastic are priced differently, so what your structure is made from will affect the price.
