Product Description

Say goodbye to the boring backyard garage. The Premier Cabin And Front Porch provides an excellent balance of storage capacity, style, investment quality, and functionality.

Storage Capacity to Meet Your Needs

Our smallest unit (10’ x 16’) provides almost 1100 cubic feet of storage capacity, while our largest (12’ x 36’) portable building delivers nearly 3000 cubic feet of storage capacity …equivalent to over 650 of U-Haul’s Large Packing Boxes.

Home Owner Association (HOA) Friendly Design

Zoning boards and HOAs often require storage buildings to closely align with the standards used by the home, in the neighborhood, or within the business campus. Bennett offers its unique “B” Lap siding design and a Vinyl exterior option to address requirements from HOA Boards or others.

Engineered Durability

Beyond the visually pleasing design, our “B” Lap” siding is comprised of 29-gauge steel, giving your building strength and durability for years to come.  One look at our 2” x 6” treated plywood flooring system or our fiberglass door with deadbolt and you can tell the Bennett quality difference. We select only the finest raw materials suppliers so that we can pass on to you the most compelling product warranties in the industry. (See Warranty section).

Infinite Possibilities

Our Premier Series offers more standard features than any other product we sell. Depending upon the size of Premier model selected, up to 4 windows, 3 lights, and 2 electrical outlets are bundled into the unit price. Need built-in shelving, a workbench, or an access ramp? Our Premier Cabin And Front Porch can be further customized with popular factory options or you can use your creativity after we install it at your home, to complete your vision of the perfect Playhouse, Man-Cave, or Hobby Hut.
