Foothill Country Sheds, based in El Dorado County, CA, is the regional dealer for the metal building manufacturer called Madera Carports which is based in Madera, California (near Fresno). Madera Carports prefabricates and installs the buildings for its various dealer partners, so be prepared to receive calls from the Madera Carports Scheduling Dept. with a 559 area code to schedule installation, usually 1-2 weeks before the actual installation date.

The turnaround time varies from season to season but is generally from 2-6 weeks

Most building departments require a permit, whether it is an Ag exempt permit or standard accessory building permit, for any structure larger than 120 square ft which is a 10 by 12 building. We do not require a permit to install your building. We assume that you, as the homeowner, will address the applicable permit issues. To our knowledge the vast majority of our customers do not get a permit. Our advice to every customer, whether getting a permit or not, is to understand the attitude of your neighbors towards an outbuilding like this. Over 15 years and thousands of buildings we have only had a dozen or so request engineered plans to retroactively get a permit; every single one of those has been because of a neighbor reporting them to the building department because they think the building is an eyesore, it's blocking their view, or they simply feel it’s their responsibility to control what happens in the neighborhood. Please ensure that you have done your due diligence regarding the permit issue. Should you decide to get a permit, we can supply the engineered plans which consist of the foundation plan, the structural analysis, and the elevations - everything you need, aside from the site plan, to submit to the building department for a permit. Plans cost anywhere from $775 to $2,000 and take approximately 4-6 weeks to get. Once you get your permit, which could take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks or more, you will let us know that you have your permit so that we can at that point schedule you for installation which currently is approximately 2-6 weeks out determined by the availability of materials. My experience is that building departments charge approximately $1 per square foot for a permit. For assistance determining the feasibility of acquiring a permit and then actually acquiring the permit contact Permits.com. For assistance with creating a site plan contact DrawSitePlan.com. For orders requesting the engineered plans, the price of the building is subject to change based on the engineer’s design criteria.
Depending on the size and complexity of the building anywhere from 2 hours for a simple carport to several days for a large barn or warehouse. Generally speaking, metal buildings are installed in a surprisingly quick timeframe which is why they are so economical.

Depending on the situation, we will attach to our own buildings but not others. If the building is one of ours, we can usually modify and/or repair the building or move it from one site to another. Whether or not we can do that for other brands depends on the specifics of that building. It helps to see pictures of the building to do an initial assessment. It is generally not feasible to increase the height of an existing building. In our experience, you are better off selling the building on a venue such as Facebook Marketplace and starting over to get exactly what works for your current needs.
It is always helpful for customers to provide us with pictures of the site from various perspectives so we may get an initial assessment. However, we generally do not conduct site surveys since Foothill Country Sheds do not have anything to do with preparing the site for installation. You will want to contact a grading or concrete contractor to assess the site to give you recommendations for what would be required to provide a level site.
For a guarantee that the buildings are designed and installed to meet your lot's load requirements we would need to procure the certified, engineered plans which include the foundation plan, the structural analysis, and elevations - everything needed for certification and to obtain a permit. Otherwise, we use our best judgement based on our experience of what our engineer has incorporated in the structural design for certification for various buildings and load requirements but it does not come with a guarantee as does a certified building.
The site must be within 4 to 6" of level for the building to be installed. Front to back differences in height are especially prohibitive, whereas side to side differences in height can generally be accommodated so long as we know beforehand what the difference in height is from side to side. We generally do not conduct site surveys since we do not have anything to do with preparing the site for installation. You will want to contact a grading or concrete contractor to assess the site to give you recommendations for what would be required to provide a level site.
The deposit is the lesser of 10% or $1,000. The remaining balance is due after the building is installed. Financing should be obtained from a 3rd party financing company.
- For any ground application, such as dirt, gravel, asphalt, and chip and seal, the standard anchoring is 3' rebar spikes that go through the base rail next to every leg.
- For concrete the standard anchoring is concrete wedge anchors known as "Redheads".
- For additional, superior anchoring we can add 30" augers or manta ray spikes
