During the summer and autumn months, folks traveling along Johns Prairie Road may have noticed construction work at Freedom Self Storage. We have been building three new buildings of storage units and they will soon be available to rent out.
New Storage Units: This Year’s Construction Activity
In August & September: The holes for the concrete foundations were dug out, the frames for the concrete pads built, and the concrete pads poured and cured.
In September and October: The metal structures, roll up doors, and electrical work were assembled or installed. We were quite lucky to have several stretches of sunny, dry weather for this process. The photo above shows one of the metal storage buildings getting set up.
In November: The downspouts, underground drainage system, and new video cameras were installed. And we also brought in a bulldozer and dump truck to remove the extra gravel and dirt that came from digging the holes for the foundations, as seen in the photo to the right.
What’s left to do?
There are just a couple steps remaining… Sometime shortly after the Thanksgiving holiday, the final grading and the addition of a new top coat of fresh gravel will complete the construction process.
Once the construction of our new storage units is complete, we will have a wide selection of unit sizes available to rent to customers. The unit sizes will range from our smallest 5×10 units up to the largest 10×30 units.
If you’ve been thinking of making space in your garage for your car this winter, we’ve got the right-sized unit for your tools, spare tires, and boxes of Christmas decorations. And if you’ve been wanting to de-clutter your closets in the new year, we will have just the right-sized storage unit to serve as an extra attic for all your stuff. Give us a call today!
