DESIGN & CONTRACTING A BACKYARD OFFICE BUILDING

Designing and constructing office and hobby spaces is a core strength of Morton and how we create the perfect building for our customers. Check out these design guidelines on how to best optimize your next backyard office building:

Tip Rationale
Office Location (window placement)
  • Can view both yard and residence for watching children, enjoying scenery
Place windows in high traffic or high use workspaces
  • Provides natural light
  • Makes the space feel larger
  • Able to watch/engage with family members
Walk door placement
  • Multiple doors provide options and improve flow
Side overhead door
  • Easy access when multiple vehicles block main overhead door
Tip Rationale
Mechanical Placement
  • Avoids having to enter the main residence
  • Easy clean up and water management in the storage area
Electrical: Separate office from storage area, min lumens per sq ft
  • Eliminate shop electrical surges impacting office equipment
  • Adequate available electricity for both shop and office use at the same time
Plumbing: Water faucets, floor drains, hose bib, bathrooms
  • Easy access to maintenance & repair items
  • Proximity to restroom
Site Prep/Concrete: Exterior size equal to interior dimensions of the building

THE ULTIMATE IN STYLE AND FUNCTION

HIGH-QUALITY UPGRADES

Cupolas, decorative structures placed on top of a building’s roof, deliver personalized accents that reflect your style. Overhangs are another common upgrade as they provide another layer of defense against moisture damage, while enhancing the beauty of your building.



QUALITY WE STAND BEHIND

Every component used in a Morton building is optimally designed, tested, manufactured and constructed to maximize the strength and integrity of Morton’s building system. Morton also examines your individual building needs to make sure your building is designed to stand up to the loads it will be required to carry throughout its life. Morton offers unmatched warranties including a 50-year snow warranty with no weight limit, a 5-year wind warranty with no velocity limit, and a 35-year paint warranty on most colors. Written using easy-to-understand language, our warranty serves to directly inform, not confuse, our customers. At Morton, we honor our commitment to you, a pledge that dates back to the first Morton building, which was constructed over six decades ago. Because all of our warranties are handled in-house, Morton is truly with you from concept through completion and beyond.

Working With Morton

When you choose to build with Morton, the experience is as solid as the building itself.

We operate within a culture of accountability. Before, during and after completion of your building, we’re your one point of contact. It’s no wonder the vast majority of our projects stem from referrals.

Your Morton sales consultant will meet with you to discuss your ideas and budget for your RV and tall vehicle storage building. Working with you, a building layout will be generated based on your specifications. As part of the larger Morton network, he or she will guide you through the entire process to:

  • Arrange pre-build details, like concept development, building plans and quotes, site plan, permits and zoning details, budgeting and financing
  • Oversee the building process, communicating with you throughout
  • Check on your satisfaction after completion
