8x14 Office w/Porch
Construction Blog

This building is 14 feet long, 4 of which is porch area.  That makes the enclosed portion 8x10 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 birthday present, a playhouse for a young boy.

Started construction on 23 May 17.
Completed construction on 30 May 17.
Delivered to Bayard, Nebraska on 1 June 17.
On our last delivery to Lamar, the transmission failed in our primary delivery vehicle, so we lost a couple of days completing the delivery and recovering the inoperable vehicle.

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.
