• Reuben Esh of Esh Quality Structures, Inc., Richmond, Kans.
Scipio House, built for Reuben Esh, is a residential home that began as a 2 bedroom, 1 bath, 24×44-foot home on a walkout basement with no garage. A 32×44-foot post-frame building was added and turned the structure into a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with an attached 2-car garage and a 12×44-foot attic space above the garage. The entire 32×44-foot addition was post-frame construction with 2-foot on center attic trusses. This made for an easy add-on to the existing structure without using the existing structure for support. This also avoided the cost of a continuous footing.
• Kim N. Gee of Gee Building Systems, Inc.- Wick Buildings, Shenandoah, Iowa
Gee Retrofit/ Remodel built for Kim and Gil Gee updated the Gees’ 80-year-old existing home. One part is living space and the other is an attached garage. Since the owners are post-frame builders, it was an easy decision to build a post-frame addition. They were able to really “put their money where their mouths are” and build an energy-efficient, nice-looking addition to their home. Moreover, the construction and design were done to assure the addition was fully enclosed prior to opening the new section to the old.
• Michael and Matthew Stabinski of Buildings by Design, Wayne, Pa.
Sentry Surgical Retrofit Warehouse, built for Sentry Surgical, will be used for warehouse storage. This increased the client’s inventory and production. Post-frame was chosen for the design purpose and flexibility of the structure. The builder was able to achieve ceiling heights and spans, along with the structural tie-ins, that were more cost-effective than any other type of construction.
