The Base

Each barn is built on pressure treated lumber skids. These runners allow the building to be moved more easily and keep it off the ground. It is recommended having the mini barns sitting on a gravel bed (owner supplied).
The floor is of 5/8" water resistant AdvanTech®! We believe Advantech® to be superior to plywood in many ways. It stays flat and it's water resistant property is desireable when storing snow blowers, ATV's and vehicles.
