Frontier Builders oversaw the design and construction of this multi-purpose shop.

This 50’ x 88’ x 16’ multi-use post frame project located in South Central Pennsylvania has many unique features. Designed to be a multi-use shop for excavation and racing equipment, the client also wanted to add a second floor attic space for a future living space. With over 5,800 sq. ft. of useable space, this turn-key project is a complete package.
