This building is 20 feet long, 4 of which is porch area.  That makes the enclosed portion 12x16 feet.  The inside is framed such that you can insulate and panel it.  It has 2 insulated windows and the 9-Lite door for its base configuration.  You can order it here.

It is ideal for many different purposes.  This building pictured here was ordered to be a small hunting cabin for a group of men who hunt pheasants.

Started construction on 9 May 17.
Completed construction on 18 May 17.
Delivered to Lamar, Colorado on 21 May 17.
Had 7 inches of rainfall during construction period!  If we'd had nice days, the building would have taken 4 days to build.

If you right-click on any of the below images, you can open it into a new window to view full-size and with great detail.

Runners and floor joists.  Our large building runners are built from a pair of treated 2x6's for a size of 4x6.  These will resist warping and twisting better than a solid beam.
