Mike's Hobby Garage
Built By:
Morton Buildings, Inc.
Salem, IL
Building use, importance, and newsworthiness: Mike needed an insulated building for working on and restoring his old truck collection as well as storing his lawn equipment and tractors. We also built a 21 ft. x 26 ft. insulated and steel lined room for a four post lift to be installed. This room included water, floor draings, and air compressor.

Unique features: The functionality and efficiency of the building was important for Mike but it also had to look good also. We added eyebrows over the overhead doors and entry doors. During construction we added LED can lighting into the eyebrows with a dimmer switch located in the home.

Post-frame advantage: Mike was looking for the strongest, most energy efficient, and overall best quality building. Post frame construction allowed him to insulate, modify and finish the interior exactly how he wanted.

Cost per Sq. Ft.: $33.33

Duration to complete: 21
