FLEX DESIGN OPTION

Somewhere between a standard kit design and a custom build, our Flex Design option enables you to make structural adjustments that honor your vision more fully. This includes fundamental changes to the building such as height or width, removal of posts, changes to roof pitch and custom upgrades like a deck or covered porch—all for less than a custom build!

Building Height Icon
AVAILABLE UPGRADE

Building Height

Each of our kits has been predesigned to a certain sidewall height. But when our clients want to use their kits for the storage of large recreational vehicles or commercial equipment that exceed our standard building height, we can raise the second level of your building to meet your needs.

Building Width icon
AVAILABLE UPGRADE

Building Width

Most of our post and beam buildings are designed on a grid with a structural post every 12’. This system takes advantage of the standard lengths of dimensional lumber to maximize the efficiency of your building and reduce waste. Some clients prefer a floor plan with an atypical building width requiring larger or smaller spans between posts. These changes can be accommodated with a custom structural upgrade.

Post Removal Icon
AVAILABLE UPGRADE

Post Removal

The post and beam building system relies on structural posts that eliminate any load-bearing walls, allowing our clients to design highly customized floor plans. However, some clients may want to remove one or more structural posts to create larger open spaces. These changes can usually be accommodated with a custom structural upgrade that increases the size of other posts, beams, and connection hardware to compensate for the missing posts.

DC Structures Logo

OTHER OPTIONS & UPGRADES

At DC Structures, we pride ourselves on offering our clients the ability to make more customizations than any other building kit company. True customization means more than giving you some of the best windows, doors, equestrian equipment and building materials to choose from, it also means allowing you to make certain structural modifications to your building.

Shipping Icon
STANDARD OPTION

Shipping

Except for our large riding arenas, all of our kits come with free shipping to the lower 48 United States. Live somewhere else? No problem! We’ll create a custom shipping quote and send your kit anywhere in the world.

Warranty Icon
STANDARD OPTION

Warranty

Please speak with one of our design specialists about our warranty.

Wind and Snow Loads Icon
AVAILABLE UPGRADE

Wind & Snow Loads

Our sturdy buildings are pre-engineered to meet a standard set of criteria that will meet county regulations almost anywhere. However, if you live in an area with unusually stringent codes, particularly at high elevations, our standard building kit may not be sufficient. DC Structures can accommodate these loads by making changes to your kit, usually by increasing the size of structural posts and beams.

Floor Trusses Icon
AVAILABLE UPGRADE

Floor Trusses

Our building kits with second story living options are designed with a simple floor system using 2” floor joists, but we recommend that many of our clients upgrade to an open web floor truss system. This truss system means you’ll never have to drill a hole through a joist to install plumbing, electrical, or HVAC systems.

Heavy Timber Upgrades Icon
AVAILABLE UPGRADE

Heavy Timber Upgrades

If you love the heavy timber look, ask your design specialist about a heavy timber framing upgrade to the loft or roof of your building kit to create a more rustic and handcrafted aesthetic.
