USE VALUE
By Olivia Trusdale

Welcome back to the blog! Today, we’re excited to be discussing the numerous uses for our buildings!  And the better and more they are USED…  the more VALUE you can have from them!

As we’ve mentioned before, our structures are “hybrid” in design composition; they are made from both wood (secondaries) AND steel (super structure) utilizing the optimized benefits of both materials. 

This includes being sturdier, lasting, more flexible, more cost-effective, and more resistant to bumps, bruises and even some disasters than either a solely wood or all steel building. 

Now that you know a little bit more about what they can do in a structurally sound sense, we’d like to share about what you can do with them! 

Let’s break it down into three main categories: Home, Work, and Play.  You’ll want a solid and safe structure for any of the three so that you can have as much full use value as you can for generations to come!

Home: Perka’s hybrid buildings make fantastic houses – or better yet great safe and wonderfully comfy homes! Sometimes called “barndominiums”, “shouses” or “shomes”, these solidly built structures are easily customizable, so you can get exactly what you need for your family for now and even in the future. Since they’re primarily made with steel, these buildings are stronger than a regular conventionally built house. Plus, shop-home combinations tend to be much cheaper than a traditional home, especially as housing costs continue to climb.  And you get to use more square feet of each room with purpose.  Sounds like a good deal to me!

Work: Many of our clients, (aka friends) are involved in agriculture, so this category is also “home” to many.  Often, our buildings are used as barns; and what can they store? Great question! They are ideal living quarters for sheep, goats, chicken, turkeys, ducks, pigs, cattle, horses, dogs and cats, and even llamas or alpacas! They are also perfect for storing seed, fertilizer, harvested crops, or even for growing crops! (Remember when we talked about vertical farming?)  Plus, they can be big enough to hold all the machinery you need: combines, tractors, milking equipment, lawn mowers, harvesters, rakes, tillers, horse bridles, and more! Perka Buildings are so strong, you get Peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to worry about your valuable livestock and machinery from being severely damaged or hurt.   How much value can that mean to you?

Or maybe you don’t work on a farm. Perka Designs can make great solutions!  Perka Buildings can be made as big or as small as you like. Small enough, perhaps, for a simple office or workspace. Even though working from home is becoming more and more popular, it can still be difficult to focus when you’re surrounded by the noise and distractions in your house. A small, personal office building in your own backyard can help decrease chaos and diversions, making it easy for you to focus on work. Just one more way to help “Keep It Simple and Stress-free” and add USE-VALUE!

Play: There are plenty of options in this category. Whether it’s a gym, indoor basketball courts, playhouse, pool house, Man Cave, Cigar Cavern, She Shed, Crafting Corner or general storage space/garage for outdoor games brought indoors and any “adult toys” one might acquire!  There’s always more indoor space needed isn’t there?!  Protecting our assets from inclement weather prevents it from depreciating and even “rotting” quicker than it needs to.   And THAT adds to the ROI (return on the investment).  Something to consider when doing the “math” on VALUE!
