Hay, Cattle and Machinery Shelters


Grant Nelson is now a dealer for Silverstream Shelters IN northern Minnesota and North Dakota. Silverstream Shelters now features the "Sabre Series" made from either powdered coated or galvanized steel. Silverstream shelters also offers a wood laminate building
that is very strong. Both are very economical and are covered by a tarp that is guaranteed for 15 years. I ordered one the next day after seeing this shelter. I checked with my insurance and the cost to insure was very low. The truss arch makes this building VERY strong. If you need a cattle, hay or equipment shed call me today at 218-964-5118 or email me at Thank-you

Erecting my Silverstream Shelter

The Base Wall and gravel in place.

Above is the base wall with 2 X 6 planks around the perimeter of the posts.

Heavy duty ratchets for tightening the tarp

2 X 6's will hold the tarp away from the truss edges.

Below is another shelter going up in Northwest Minnesota.  This one was set on a 7 foot
sidewall.  In this case, the farmer did the work himself and ended up witha nice structure.  We don't recommend more than a 5 foot sidewall.

Clockwise from left are (1)the heavy-duty ratchets for tightening the tarp, (2)The plates that mount the truss to the posts, (3) Trusses in place in 1 HOUR!! (4) The finished product and (5) the 2 x 6 planks that are used to keep the tarp slightly away from the bottom of the trusses.

Truss edge mounts on top of base wall.

Trusses in place in 1 hour!!!

The finished product.
