At Carolina Yard Barns we do not require a down payment on most sheds. Some of the larger custom sheds do
require a small down payment. We do expect to be paid for the shed upon completion. We accept cash, check,
Visa, Mastercard and have financing available.
3. Are there any additional costs for the shed being constructed on my property?
Absolutely not! At Carolina Yard Barns we believe ALL sheds should be custom built on the homeowners site
to preserve the structural integrity of the building. All of our pricing includes us coming out and building it
on YOUR site.
4. How long does it take to construct my shed?
Generally, most of our standard sheds can be constructed in one day. If you are purchasing a Hardi Plank
shed or a shed that is 12' wide or larger please allow 2-3 days for construction.
5. Do I need to be home while my shed is being built?
No. It is generally not necessary for you to be at home when the shed is constructed. We do ask that if you are
not going to be home when the shed is constructed that you mark where you want the building placed and
mark where you want the doors located.
6. Do you obtain necessary permits?
It is the customers responsibility to obtain all necessary Homeowners Association approval and to check with
there local Building Department to see if a building permit is required. If a building permit is required please
contact us and we will provide you with the schematics for the building permit. If the Building Department
requires stamped drawings there may be a delay in getting the engineers stamp and there may be additional
costs to cover the engineers costs. For more information on building permits in Wake County click here. 7.

11. What do I need to do to prepare my site for shed construction?
Generally you will not need to do much to prepare your site. We will provide free leveling up to 6 inches, there
will be a nominal charge for yards more than 6 inches out of level. We do need at least 2 ft of clearance all the
way around your shed. If you are not going to be home when your shed is constructed please place 4 stakes at
the 4 corners where you want your shed and a 5th stake where you would like the center of the door opening.
We also need to have an electrical outlet available within 150ft of construction. If there is not an outlet
available we will need to bring a generator and there will be an additional charge for generator rental.
12. I have been told that if I purchase a building all ready assembled and have it delivered to my yard that
I do not need a building permit. Is this true?
We have called and asked many building permit departments throughout the state about this. Carolina Yard
Barns has been told by all that we have contacted that even if you bring a building to your home all ready
assembled if it is larger than 12 x 12 you are still required to have a building permit. Many of these companies
that deliver buildings to your yard build them as quickly and cheaply as possible and they usually do not meet
NC Building codes. We have heard stories where people have purchased a building and then found out they
needed a building permit and the company they purchased it from could not provide them with schematics.
At Carolina Yard Barns we encourage you to call your local building permit department and find out what the
requirements are for a storage building. We will then work with you and provide you with building
schematics to obtain your building permit.
13. Do you need to come and see my yard before the shed is built?
In most cases it is not necessary to see the yard ahead of time, but we are always more than happy to come out
and survey the site where the shed will be placed. We provide this service FREE of charge. If we come out we
will measure the area that your are considering putting the building and then check to see how level the site is
and discuss with the homeowner what would need to be done to level the building.
14. I found a picture of a shed on the internet that I want built but I can't find anything like it on your site,
can you build something similar?
Most definitely! We do a lot of custom buildings. Find us a picture of what you want and we will get you an
estimate on construction costs.
15. Are your builders insured?
Definitely! We keep on file a copy of our builders General Liability and Workers Compensation policies and
check to make sure that they are kept current.
