I stopped by the Ben’s Barns lot, and their new manufacturing facility, and was impressed by the quality of their material and workmanship. The cabins they were working on were impressive in their own right, and the level of quality in their basic storage buildings was well above the norm.

Aside from the wooden portable cabins, barns and storage buildings available, they are also offering a line of steel clad portable storage buildings.
