We started building sheds full time in January of 2000. However, that is only part of the story I have been helping build these barns since I was 8 years old as my Father to whom I have never gave enough credit built barns as a part time job. Man, those were some late nights!
We didn’t have any fancy shop or power tools at that time the only tools we had was a gas-powered home light skill saw that ran sometimes, and a gas-powered table saw it is lucky that I still have all my limbs left!
Getting back to the story my first paying job, I nailed all the plywood with a hammer and nails! Guess what Dad paid me? $1.00 for each floor I had to watch not to make dents in floor or got a stern do it better or customers won’t like it.
The very first sheds we built were those ugly old Blue Barn Dog food sheds if anyone remembers those. They had Blue Barn Dog Food painted with white letters on the roof and we painted a picture of a dog on the door with his name Fido above it. We laid out the metal in our unfinished upstairs of house we laid our stencils which was made out of fiberglass on the metal then spray painted it with spray cans of paint. I bet the EPA would be proud of us if we done that today!
Back to when our company began we started manufacturing sheds in 2000 I only had one employee which was my wife. I didn’t have much experience talking to people at the time so that made it tough. I still remember the first shed I sold to a guy in Indy he had more faith in me than I did!
Our business has grown a lot since then. We now have a full staff of Full and Part time employees and our delivery and setup team. When you order a barn at Raber’s Portable Storage, we do the very best to make sure the building meets or exceeds your expectations. We want to make sure that buying a building from us is a pleasure not a chore. We also want to thank all of our past and future customers for considering a barn from Raber’s.
I said a prayer for you today…
I said a prayer for you today and know God must have heard. I felt the answer in my heart although He spoke no word (I knew you wouldn’t mind) I ask Him to send treasures of a more everlasting kind! I ask that He’d be near you at the start of each new day; to grant your health and blessings and friends to share along your way! I ask for happiness for you in all things great and small but it was for His loving care. I prayed for most of all!
