Yes. Most counties require permits for “Portable Storage Buildings” Usually if the longest wall is 12ft. or more. It is the responsibility of the property owner to obtain a permit prior to the delivery of the building. First call the “building inspector” for proper instructions.
Tie-downs are anchoring devices that auger(screw) into the ground approximately 30″ and have a wide galvanized strap that attaches to the strongest framing components under the building. These devices were originally designed for the mobile home industry. They protect the building from being blown off the leveling blocks at high winds. Bunce Buildings can install tie-downs at the four corners of the portable building during initial delivery and leveling, for a nominal extra charge. If we make a special trip later to do a tie-down the charge would be slightly higher.
Lark Buildings delivers the buildings usually with a heavy duty 4×4 drive pickup truck, a double or triple axle trailer, and hydraulic tilting capability and an electric cable winch. The truck and trailer must be maneuvered into the setup location and the building is rolled off the rear of the trailer. We are not equipped to do any leveling or grading of the land. The buildings are setup on the site selected by the property owner. Up to 20 leveling blocks are provided for leveling as part of the price. Additional blocks are presently $3.00 per block if more leveling is necessary.
The building is leveled using no mortar, stacked concrete block spacer pads under the outside 4×4 treated runners. The pads usually vary from 6′ to 10′ apart and the exact placement is determined by the trained delivery drivers. The lowest corner is started with a 4″ solid concrete block measuring 4″x8″x16″ laid flat against the ground. All support pads are started out with a 4″ thick solid block against the ground. If more height is needed the delivery truck carries 8″ high wall blocks, and thinner solid blocks, wood shims, and locust wooden wedges. Bunce Buildings suggests tie-down anchors for any building if a corner is over 20″ high. If a corner is over a certain limit than the column may be “double blocked” which creates a 16″ x 16″ square column with the blocks stacked in an inner locking bond pattern. After 20 leveling blocks for buildings up to 12 x 24 and 30 leveling blocks for buildings 28’ or longer, there is an additional charge per block.
Lark Buildings will gladly use your vinyl siding and/or shingles. However, there is a small fee for the installation of architectural shingles.
If your ground is not completely dry or solid, we will wait to deliver your building until the ground is suitable. Because of variables beyond our control such as weather and the weight of our truck and trailer, Lark Buildings cannot assume responsibility for damage to your yard or anything buried in your yards. So it’s best to make sure.
Lark Buildings will gladly frame out the rough opening dimensions you provide or we will install the doors and/or windows you give us as long as they are not replacement windows and come in a frame. The charge for this service is minimal.
