Hobby Storage Building


Dousman, WI

The clients reached out to us because they were looking for hobby storage for their vehicles and boats. They had been paying monthly for storing their two boats and wanted the ability to store them on their property. We set an appointment and met them at their property to get a better idea of what they were looking for. Their property is in a higher-end community with an HOA. Knowing there was an HOA, we knew that there would have to be some architectural elements that would be required in the design. After seeing their house and talking with them about the design they wanted, we were able to come up with a building that would be an extension of their home. It would also give them more usable outdoor living space, as we designed an 8’x56′ covered outdoor porch. We were able to use some of the same elements from their house design and tie them into their new building. Despite the fact the house siding was wood and the new building was steel, we were able to match the colors very well. We were able to find the matching brick to the exterior brick of the house from their build several years ago. Lastly, we were able to use LP Smart trims around all the windows and doors. All this pulled the elements of their house into their new building. They had some skepticism about whether a post frame building would be a good fit for their property, but after seeing the design, it was clear that not only would this be visually appealing, but the design would also give them more square footage than they originally anticipated. After meeting with the HOA, we did have to make some tweaks to the design. They ultimately loved the changes and we were able to go ahead with starting their project. The building process went smoothly and the final project was everything they hoped it would be. This summer, they plan to do some final landscaping in front of the covered porch. This will allow them to utilize the outdoor living space exactly how they envision.
