SHERMAN IS KNOWLEDGEABLE & FAST
In the spring 2005 my father was in the cities renewing his contractor license and bumped into this guy named Steve. From what my dad said Steve was a great guy, very knowledgeable and was running his family business called Sherman Buildings and Sherman Lumber. He was talking to my dad about post frame buildings and how they were looking for builders to purchase their materials from Sherman and that they would supply us with a computer estimating program, reliable service and the best materials to build with. Before this I had been working with many other builders (Northland, Lindquist, Lester, Menards) to name a few and was realizing that I wasn’t making enough money to grow my company the way that I had envisioned or even pay my bills. Ken My father set up a meeting with Steve down in Mora to have me meet him and look what they could possibly do to help us go to the next level (make money). So we met, I was sold, I learned their system and sold my first building it was a 40x60x14. The way they put together their materials package was very easy to understand and a lot easier than what I was used too. First the materials showed up, Second all of the materials were there and Third it was all very nice lumber, it was mind blowing! Now one of the things I’ll never forget is how Steve said if you put 100 post frame builders in a room together they all would tell each other that they are the best and that the other guys are doing it all wrong. Sherman has their own way of building which wasn’t a surprise to me since I had built so many other brands of buildings, but they taught fast and easier ways ways to construct buildings with that knowledge and the materials I was on my way to make some money. Steve has since moved on to other things and Ethan has stepped up to take on Steve’s roll.
