This building from RAM Buildings of Minnesota was designed to meet all the needs for this owner:  An ag shop for his farming operation end to end, with a two-story monitor-style building that serves as a mechanical shop below, and above a social gathering area for the owner’s band and musical friends to practice in. It stands tall and proud on the landscape and has become a point of reference for people in the area.

Features include Perma-Columns, 1.5” spray foam on the walls against Tyvek with fiberglass batt insulation inside the wall cavity, geo-thermal heating system, sliding doors in front of the overhead doors on the north end (monitor portion), and casement windows to help seal out the wind from the open landscape around it. The features were all selected to help ensure this building serves the family farm for generations.

Some of the traditional building materials used are Metal Sales Classic Rib 29-gauge steel, Thermo-Tech fixed and casement windows, AJ Manufacturing 7100 exterior Series Doors, Midland 3” Thermo-Guard overhead doors, MWI Sabre Slim latches on the sliding doors, Tyvek Building Wrap, Littfin columns/roof trusses/floor trusses, and SFS Fasteners.
