How It Works

Graceland’s unique process offers an unparalleled level of craftsmanship, guaranteeing a product of the highest excellence. Here’s how it works:

First, we take a 4×6 treated runner and cut a 2×6 treated floor joist one inch to lock the floor into place, with a hurricane clip on every runner to the floor set at 16 inches on-center.  A 5/8″ THS-treated tongue and groove plywood is then laid on top using galvanized ring shank nails to prevent the nails from backing out.

Wall studs are set 16 inches on center with every third stud doubled to ensure structural integrity.  Treated T-111 housing siding that carries a lifetime warranty against woodrot and termites is applied with a light honey-gold stain. Paint and Urethane buildings options are available and use a waterproof commercial grade 5/8″ primed board that bears a 50 year warranty.  As in a home, a double plate system sits atop the studs.

Graceland has an exclusive patented soffit vent system that works with a full length ridge vent to keep our buildings 15 degrees cooler than other buildings and can be combined with the radiant barrier option to keep the building up to 22 degrees cooler than others. Hurricane clips are placed on every truss attaching to the doubled top wall plate and on each joist attaching to the runner.  7/16″ OSB roofing board is placed onto the roofing rafters, 15 lbs. felt and metal sheeting or architecture shingles.

Graceland can customize your building at no additional charge, just the way you like it. On-site build is available for inaccessible areas and for sizes larger than 16×40.  Build on-site has a site build fee of around $500, paid directly to the builder for his travel, gas, and lodging expenses.
