How We Build

State of the Art Production Facility

Economy Garages builds your garage, cabin or building shell in a 12,000 square foot production facility where your building is panelized indoors under controlled conditions. We sweat the details on every Economy Garage.

Mill Direct Buying Power

We buy our lumber mill direct in truck load quantities. It is stored indoors. We buy the very best materials available. Compare the quality of our building studs shown below with any available.

Your Walls Start Square and Stay Square

We pre-build our wall sections so they are straight and square. By building under controlled conditions, your building comes to your site in the best condition possible

Ground and Concrete Preparation

Economy Garages can heat the ground before the pour to remove any frost and enable the concrete to cure properly in its early stages. If you look closely, you can see the steam rising from the slab. The concrete is then protected by insulated curing blankets to continue the curing process.

We Deliver the Package to Your Site Ready to Go

Economy Garages fleet of vehicles will deliver your building package to your site in top condition. Our crews go right to work. Your building package arrives in great condition and is erected in first rate form.

Experienced and Very Friendly Crews

The boys, Joshua and Quinn are at the very fun (pre-teen) age, and they spend much of their spring practicing and attending baseball games. They enjoy time together hunting, fishing, water tubing and most outdoor activities.

Last year the boys and Eric built their own rock tumbler and have started polishing agates, since they have been picking them for years. Eric’s grandson, Evan, Danielle’s son, is under a year old and is the easiest going, least fussy baby he has ever seen (so far).
