Wick builder Michael Fox built this building to be the office and showroom of his company, Getterr Done.

They now have a beautiful building where they can showcase many of the products they will be using on their customer’s buildings. It also houses their shop and provides storage for tools and equipment. There is a glass cupola on a 5/12 pitch roof. The wrap-around breezeway has a shingled roof and the overhead doors have Dutch corners. There are shutters, wainscot and overhangs and the interior is completed as offices.

The builder really wanted to highlight the adaptability of post-frame, as in multi-purpose buildings. This “green” building uses mostly renewable or recycled materials and boasts a high R-value insulation. Construction went very quickly, which shows one of the advantages of post-frame. The building blends very well into the environment, surrounded by mature trees. It also has easy access to a major highway, so it is easy for customers to find.

CLADDING: Wick steel; ROOFING: Main roof, Wick steel; IKO architectural shingles on breezeway; WINDOWS: Plyco 4×3 sliders; DOORS: Plyco with 3-foot nine-light; FASTENERS: Wick; INSULATION: R-19 blanket; FOUNDATION/STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS: Wick post-frame; UNIQUE PRODUCTS/ACCESSORIES: Wick glass cupolas, colored stamped concrete entrance.
