A framed ceiling is used in a heated building where efficiency is important. Normally, heating the attic area above the bottom of the trusses results in wasted energy. Ceiling joists are 2×6 joists spaced 24” on the center installed between the bottom chords of the trusses. A sheathing, typically drywall, is attached to the ceiling joist creating a surface for blow-in insulation. The finished framed ceiling will give the room or building a completed appearance and promote energy efficiency.
Our pole building garages and shops are ideal for all-purpose residential storage.
Customized framing options can be incorporated into the design to suit the needs for interior finishes depending on the end-use of your new building.
Insulated walls, framed ceilings, interior rooms, plumbing, and electrical packages can be designed to meet individual needs.
See our many custom exterior options available to give that special aesthetic appeal. Steel siding and roofing are only one option.
If matching your home is important, we can do that too! A new garage or shop building is an important investment that will enhance and add value to your property.
Whom you choose to design and build this investment shouldn’t be taken lightly.
With thousands of completed residential projects, our experience is second to none. Be aware that most builders in our industry have only a few years of this type of experience.
We are learning new design techniques with every project and applying this knowledge to all of our projects.
