When the Waldrons decided to restore an old machine shed on their family farm, they knew the job required a skilled contractor to embrace their unique vision. As supporters of local youth sports, they wanted to convert their 1950s-style shed into a practice facility for their two sons and teammates. With a sand floor and virtually no interior infrastructure, Fox Structures was careful to preserve the shed’s historic integrity.
As a farm/sport hybrid building, the Fox Structures crew were met with a variety of challenges from selecting an interior wall material that could withstand the impact of a baseball, to considering animals’ needs while working on a fully-operational farm. Additionally, the age and location of the building presented unique challenges including uneven walls/floors and major leaking/drainage issues. Fox Structures approached the job in two stages, tackling essential concrete leveling and realignment first, then construction after. Overall, every detail—lighting, colors, materials and everything in between—were skillfully and carefully considered to make this unique challenge a slam dunk! Some might even mistake this refurbished machine shed for a new structure.
