OPTIONS & Upgrades
Our clients have the ability to customize their building kits with hundreds of available options and upgrades from America’s top-rated materials suppliers. From Andersen™ windows and doors to James Hardie® siding products, we offer a wide selection of premium building materials to choose from for your design so you can craft a building that’s true to your style and personality. With our options and upgrades, you can swap out any standard options included in the price of your building package for something more in line with your vision. Anything that’s removed from the original model will be credited back to you so you can invest your money in other important areas of your design.
Our materials packages are shipped directly from our manufacturing facility here in the Pacific Northwest to your job site via flatbed trucks. Our shipping quotes are unique to each client and are based on the size of their building and location of their construction site. If you live outside the lower 48, we can easily create a custom shipping quote for you and send your materials package using another delivery method.
How you choose to build your materials package comes down to your preference and experience level. While we’ve had a few clients act as their own general contractor, most clients choose to hire a local builder to complete their structure. If you don’t already have a builder in mind for your project, our team can help pair you with the perfect contractor for your build through our nationwide builder network. Our builder network is comprised of vetted contractors across the country who are experienced in overseeing our clients’ unique projects and can help bring your dream structure to life.
Although they aren’t able to oversee every DC Structures project, our sister company DC Builders also constructs a limited number of building kit projects every year. DC Builders only offers general contracting services in California, Oregon, and Washington, but their skilled framing crews are able to travel anywhere in the U.S. to complete the installation of your structure.
