Planning Your Building

“Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.”

The key to a quality post-frame building starts before a single post hole is dug. That’s why Astro's expert advisors will assist you throughout the entire planning process, from creating a flawless design and manageable timelines to keeping you informed about permit information and site preparation.

Permit Information

It is the customer’s responsibility to determine if a building permit is required. If one is required, it is also the customer’s responsibility to apply for the permit, however, Astro will provide the specifications and drawings to you for the application. Check with local municipalities or homeowners associations on any restrictions (size, height, materials, etc.) or required setbacks from your property lines.

Site Preparation

Excavation may be available through Astro depending on your location. If you decide to provide your own pad you will need to provide Astro builders with a level building site that is approximately 10 feet larger than your building on all sides. For example, a 30'x40' building would require a 50'x60' level pad. Adequate provisions should be made for drainage away from the site. Final leveling and grading may be needed after the completion of your building, which will be the responsibility of the customer.
