Our Story



“By utilizing sound materials and superior craftsmanship, our mission is to build affordable, high quality portable barns which meet every storage need of our customers, and through our network of builders, haulers, and dealers, to provide a level of service which results in their complete satisfaction.” -Tom Hammond, Owner



We have been selling top quality portable barns since 2002. As always, we remain dedicated to the old-fashioned concepts of HONESTY, INTEGRITY, WORK ETHIC, and QUALITY. We constantly strive to meet these high standards in everything we do.

Since we are closely involved with everything from the manufacturing of our barns to the purchasing of the input materials, we can easily monitor our barns with respect to craftsmanship and product quality. Using this proven business model, we can be even more certain we are offering you the best barn for the money, which means we can also better meet your needs with regard to features and affordability.

Let’s face it, because we offer jobs to literally dozens of hard-working Americans throughout our company, we simply have no choice but to be the best portable barn company in the business. Their well-being, as well as our reputation, depends on it!
