Not a pole building, built like your house with wall studs 16" on center.
The Richmond can easily be used for a second home, a cabin, a workshop or office. Or, perhaps you need storage for all your
outdoor equipment and tools.

Customize to your needs. Because you are assembling the Richmond you have the ability to choose the number of windows, type and quantity of doors
allowing you to place them in the locations of your choosing.
