Farming and ranching both require myriad equipment and supplies to keep the operations running effectively and efficiently. If your farm or ranch is outgrowing its storage capacity, you need to get a new building to store your tools, supplies and equipment, and that may require designing a building made to your specifications. A storage building will protect your expensive equipment and supplies, and provide an opportunity for organizing your said equipment and supplies. Storage buildings offer a wide range of options for your equipment and supply needs, and here are a few features to consider when shopping for a storage building for your farm or ranch.
Garage Doors — If you are storing large equipment pieces, garage doors are not optional. Many equipment buildings have at least two openings to allow for easy access to the equipment from different angles. Different sized doors are another consideration. A large door is great for tall tractors and combines. Smaller doors can handle the rest.
Shop Areas — Do you want to use your equipment storage building for more than storage? If you need a space to work on the equipment, a shop area makes sense so this sort of area is perfect for tools and lifts. It provides a designated area to keep all the small parts that are necessary for keeping farm equipment in working shape.
Enclosed Storage Spaces — If you need to store common parts and supplies for your equipment, a separate storage space may be a good plan. You can secure the room and place shelving inside, thus expanding a shop area, ultimately making your equipment storage even more useful. You can have a garage door to the space so you can unload and load supplies without any problems.
Office Areas — A farm or a ranch is oftentimes a large operation. Whether you harvest seasonal crops or raise cattle, there’s a lot of supplies and efforts involved that extend beyond the large equipment. Do you need a space for sorting bills, receipts, and other documents for the farm space? A separate space with heating and cooling is perfect for an office space. A mandoor will offer access to the outside and to the equipment storage space as well. Windows offer natural light and ventilation.
Wide Open Space — Equipment storage buildings can provide a large amount of open space if that is what you need. Storing all your equipment in a single building is convenient especially if you have a shop area in the same building.
Organizing your equipment and building a shop area will give your farm or ranch a center of operations. You can take a small family operation and grow it as large as you want.
