Post-frame's versatility and speedy construction convinced parishioners.
Built for the purpose of holding church services and church-based activities, this post-frame structure was placed on an insulated concrete poured wall.
The use of brick and horizontal HardiPlank on the "curb appeal" side and economical hi-rib steel on less visible sides was a way to save money but not compromise the beauty of the building. The entrance is accented by a double wide drive-through canopy for easy drop off and pick up in poor weather.
Post-frame construction was utilized due to its versatility and the construction schedule considerations involved. Ease of future expansion also influenced the decision to choose post-frame construction. Future additions to this post-frame structure would be easier when compared to conventional methods.
A member of the congregation’s building committee recalled the extra work Morton Contractors project manager Brad Engh put into the planning process.
"He was energetic and appeared to have a very strong knowledge of the post-frame building system. He took us on a 100-mile tour of other churches Morton Buildings had built in Minnesota. We are pleased with the final product. We have received dozens of comments on how beautiful the building turned out."
