Why Shelter-Kit?

Why should you buy a kit building from Shelter-Kit?

  • We have been in business for more than 47 years.
  • We have a lot of experience designing buildings to customers’ specific requirements.
  • We have a very clear purpose and mission: to manufacture kit buildings primarily for assembly by owners with no prior building experience.
  • We provide you with information and assistance to make your project successful.
  • We offer free technical support before, during and after your building project.

Unlike other kits, our buildings are pre cut and specifically designed for owner assembly.

  • They are easy to assemble and are error free.
  • All of our kits can include a complete, weather tight shell. Customers can chose to delete components, including windows, doors, roofing, etc., and buy those locally.
  • All materials are selected for quality and ease of assembly and fit. The weight of each piece is limited to what two individuals can handle. The kits are made of individual, pre-cut pieces, and are not “panelized”. We do not cut clapboard, or other horizontal siding.
  • The required construction techniques are easy. All joints are designed for an easy fit.
  • All of the terms in the instructions are easily understandable by amateurs. Our customers will work from our drawings and step-by-step instructions, instead of difficult to read blueprints.
  • All of our kits are sized and designed so that assembly is not too large a project for non-professionals. They go together quickly.

We only use high-quality materials.

  • We very carefully select each piece of lumber. It is very important to us that each piece is square and true, to make assembling your kit as easy as possible.

We custom design every kit for each customer’s specific requirements.

  • We offer many types and styles of kit buildings, each of which can be custom designed to meet your requirements. From cabins and houses, and barns and garages, we can design a building for you.
