Why You Should Consider A Chicken Coop

Why You Should Consider A Chicken Coop

When you make the decision to start raising chickens, the most important first step is providing them with a safe environment to live in. The right chicken coop allows your chickens to feel secure and comfortable, while also protecting them from bad weather, predators, and unwanted diseases.

Protection From Bad Weather

Although chickens are one of the creatures that can stand colder temperatures, it doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t have a sheltered area to run to when the weather is unbearable. You’ll want to make sure that your coop has the proper insulation to keep it warm in the wintertime, but will also want to make sure it has the proper ventilation so that it will prevent moisture from building up.

Protection From Predators

Weather is definitely one of the key reasons why you should provide your chickens with a safe home to sleep, but it isn’t the only reason. These particular creatures have a large variety of natural predators that will come into your yard and attack them. Larger animals such as hawks, foxes, dogs, and some cats will most likely hunt your chickens. However, snakes and other rodents will be after their eggs. Providing your chickens with an elevated coop will keep your flock feeling safe and secure overnight when predators come searching your yard.

A Place To Feel More Comfortable Laying Eggs

If you are someone who owns chickens, then you probably are reaping the benefits of natural, farm-fresh eggs. Hens need a comfortable place to lay their eggs and for that reason only, chicken coops are the solution. When considering a chicken coop, you’ll want to make sure that it is big enough to place nesting boxes in it. A general chicken coop usually contains one nesting boxes for every four hens. Line them with dry bedding, and you are good to go.

Protection From Disease

Just like humans, chickens like living in clean home environments. When you provide your chickens with a chicken coop that is well maintained, you will be helping your chickens remain healthy. Changing out the bedding and creating a regular cleaning routine for the coop will indeed prevent your chickens from living with unwanted pests, diseases, and odors.

Buying A Chicken Coop At Golden State Buildings

When you shop at Golden State Buildings for your chicken coop, you will have the option between our chicken hutch and our chicken ranch. The chicken hutch includes nests, 2 windows, a clean-out door, access door, chicken door, and vent door. The ranch also includes those features but can be bought in many sizes. You can view our chicken coops on our website at goldenstatebuildings.com/product-category/chicken-coop.

Why Having A Garage Is Important When Selling A Home

Why Having A Garage Is Important When Selling A Home

It’s important to remember that garages serve many purposes other than just providing a sheltered area for your vehicles. Thus, having a garage can be a determining factor for individuals looking at buying your home. People love using garages for extra storage, cars, recreational rooms, other hobbies, and sometimes as a converted living space. That is why having a garage is considered an important investment for later on if you decide to sell your home. 

Garages Are A Solid Investment

According to Remodeling Magazine, a garage remodel can expect to see a 74% return on investment. With that being said, potential buyers are definitely looking to see if this extra square footage is included at the home they are looking at purchasing. 

Although many newer homes include garages, what should you do if the home you are wanting to sell is older and doesn’t have a garage to go with it? We recommend ordering a custom garage from Golden State Buildings. Adding a garage to your home is considered an investment that will not only add value to your home, but you will more than likely be able to recuperate the costs in the asking price. 

Curious How To Order From Golden State Buildings? 

The great thing about ordering a custom garage from Golden State Buildings is that they will walk you through the building plan and give you a quote on the project. The garage includes the plans, permits and permit fees, and a limited lifetime warranty on the roof. The actual building includes a 4” concrete pad, 8’ smart panel siding walls, 12” overhang, a garage door, 36” steel entry door, and all materials and labor. 

Golden State Buildings Offers Add-On Options

Golden State Buildings wants you to be satisfied with your garage. If you would like to make any additional add-ons, their company would be happy to do so. They offer 9’ walls and 10’ walls, and they can be up to 16 feet wide. You can also add on additional doors, windows, paint, electrical, plumbing, insulation, drywall, and custom siding such as SmartLap HardiPlank & Stucco.

They are located at 16178 E. Kings Canyon in Sanger, CA 93657. You can call them at (559) 351-1626 or email them at info@goldenstatebuildings.com for more information.

Dog Shed: Why You Should Consider Investing In One

Doghouses: Why You Should Consider Investing In One

We know that caring for our pets is one of the top priorities in most of our lives as pet owners. That is why we recommenced providing your dog with an outdoor space that makes him feel both safe and comfortable while visiting the outdoors. If you are someone who doesn’t have a fenced-in yard and finds it hard to walk your dog every time they feel like going out, a doghouse might be the solution for you. This would allow you to balance indoor and outdoor time for your dog’s daily activities.

In The Summer:

Having a dog shed in the summer is great for those days when the sun is hitting down hard. Your kennel will have a roof over it to protect your dog from direct sunlight, and your dog will also have the option to go in the small bed area if he or she feels like taking a nap. This also protects your dog if it is raining outside as well. Overall, your dog will get fresh air and still be able to explore the outdoors without having free rein of your backyard.

In The Winter:

Although a dog shed is not recommended for use throughout the winter time, it can be a helpful way for your dog to get some fresh air after being cooped up inside all day before being brought back into your warm home. It’s a great way to be able to monitor your dog while he or she uses the restroom or exerts some built-up energy, but should not be used for leaving your dog in the snow for extended periods of time.

Contact Us

At Golden State Buildings, we offer four different styled dog homes that range in sizes. You can choose from a dog cabin, mansion, barn, or ranch. You may also view a gallery of our animal sheds on our website. If you have any questions about the materials we use, the sizes, or prices, we recommend utilizing our live chat feature or requesting a quote. You may also call us at (559) 351-1626.

Benefits Of A Storage Shed During The Holiday Season

Benefits Of A Storage Shed During The Holiday Season

So you are preparing for the holidays and you just can’t seem to find the space for your yard equipment, extra furniture, off-season clothes, or holiday decorations? Don’t worry! Here at Golden State Buildings, we have the perfect solution for you. Consider buying or utilizing our rent-to-own shed for storage, so that you can improve the value of your home while also keeping it nice and tidy in preparation for this holiday season.

One of the main benefits of having a shed in your backyard is that it is the perfect solution for storage. Instead of having to drive half an hour to a storage unit and pay monthly fees, you have the convenience of just walking out your backdoor. Perhaps you have a lot of yard equipment, gardening tools, or those huge blow-up holiday decorations. Storing those in the shed can be an easy way for you to have access to them whenever you need them. It not only opens up garage and house space, but it also allows you to compartmentalize your possessions for easy find and clean up. We definitely recommend easing yourself of the ‘run around and declutter before everyone shows up’ phase by starting the preparation for the holidays early with one of our sheds.

Another great benefit of the storage sheds we offer is that they can be the perfect place to hang out. Whether it be a man-cave, she-cave, or place for your children to play, our storage shed is equipped with everything you need to make it a comfortable environment to hang out. Another idea would be If you wanted to be super productive and just don’t have space in your home, you could use the shed as your office.

We also know that it gets tough when your entire family is over for the holidays. Perhaps you don’t seem to have enough room to house them all or you want to prevent your family members from having to stay in hotel rooms. A shed could also be a great option for that. You could make it into a guest bedroom with enough space for your loved ones to sleep comfortably during their stay.

Contact Us

When you consider which storage shed might be best for you this holiday season based on what you plan to use it for, feel free to connect us at (559) 351-1626 with all your questions. We would be happy to walk you through which shed we think would most definitely benefit you. You can also glance at our options on our website and feel free to use our live chat feature as well.

Things to Consider When Buying a Custom Shed

There are many reasons to build a custom shed. A beautiful custom shed is a great way to spruce up your backyard and offer a wide range of new possibilities from storage space to a kid’s playhouse to Dad’s workshop. So how do you know which custom shed it right for you?

Price vs. Quality

The price of a new shed shouldn’t be the only determining factor when making your decision. Although some shoppers may be drawn to the cheapest price, outdoor sheds with higher-quality materials and solid construction last longer and look better than the cheapest options.

If budget is a primary consideration, focus on simple, well-built sheds made with basic materials rather than those with fancy details or premium materials.

The Appearance of the Shed

You want you to show off your brand-new storage building. We believe a nice shed can add to the value of your home. You need to make it looks like the shed is part of your property.

Whether it’s making sure the color of the shed is right, or by building a pathway from your home to the shed. It’s important to make sure your shed blends well with the existing landscape and exterior of your property.

Zoning Laws and HOA Rules

Before having a custom shed built or even settling on shed size, it’s important to learn about zoning law restrictions for sheds in your area.

In many areas, sheds up to a certain size—typically 120 square feet—are allowed by zoning laws without prior approval, but restrictions on shed placement are common.

Also, if you belong to a homeowner’s association, check the bylaws concerning sheds. For example, you may be required to keep your shed a certain amount of distance from your property line. Some local zoning laws in some places require a shed to be at least 3 feet from the property line.

Our team can help you navigate the legality involved in placing a zoning-approved shed on your property.

For high-quality custom sheds, garages, animal shelters, playhouses, and more, contact Golden State Buildings in Sanger CA today!
