Assembling a "Noble" shelter....tips?

Finally the steel frame kit came from Noble Panels for my 12' x 24' loafing shed. Got the wood yesterday and the roofing material will be here tomorrow. The amazing duckbill anchors are coming today or tomorrow as well.

I am so excited to finally be able to put up proper shelter for the horses, especially since snow is in the forecast.

Has anyone ever assembled a shelter from Noble before and have any tips or tricks? It seems straight forward from the direction sheet, but I know that those can be deceiving

Got the shelter put up last weekend! If anyone goes this route, I think it is worth it, but don't repeat my mistakes (all minor).

Make double, triple, quadruple certain the building is square before you tighten all the clamps and anchor it. I cannot believe I forgot to do that, so now it is about 5 inches off square. The roof panels are on, but there is overhang on one side and almost a gap on the other.

Also, get hardened drill bits for securing the roofing to the roof frame tubing. We broke 3 drill bits. And stripped 2 socket attachments.

Even though the cut diagram tells you the wider plywood pieces are 48", cut them to 47.75 to make room for the clamps. They WILL NOT fit otherwise, even with a mini sledge hammer.

All in all I am happy with it. The horses are happy to get out of the wind. And with all the commotion I met some more of our neighbors, who ended up pitching in and helping.

As for pricing, the frame kit was $1900 ish. The roofing was $450 ish. The 3/4 inch plywood siding (which I need to stain come warm weather) was $350 ish. So round up and call it about $3,000.

You are quite welcome. I actually used metal roofing, since there is a manufacturer just down the road from where I work.
