Tuff Shed Building Provide Shelter at Montana KOA Camp

10-by-16 Weekender Shed

Sharon Walker, owner of the KOA campground in Townsend, Montana, started with just one Tuff Shed building then decided to expand her collection after seeing all the possibilities of the buildings, according to the company.

Her first Tuff Shed building on the site was a 10-by-16 Weekender, used as an information services building. But with the popularity of GPS and mapping apps, Walker found that the building had a more practical use as lodging. She outfitted the building with electricity, a bunk bed, a small refrigerator, microwave, and storage for guest use, Tuff Shed says.

The Weekender now sleeps three guests comfortably and offers a great view off the porch.

The company also says that Walker was so pleased with the Weekender’s construction and durability that she purchased a 12-by-16 Tall Barn display. The barn provided a bit of challenge to move as it was already assembled.

Due to its height, the building was too large to deliver in one piece. Tuff Shed says its team in Helena found a way to deconstruct the display so it could be delivered to the campground in two separate pieces. While the building was being delivered to the campground, Walker couldn’t wait to see how the building would come together.

“It was delivered so perfectly in two pieces,” she says. “Then it fit like a teacup together. It was beautiful and I stood back and thought ‘Wow’.”

Walker and her team wasted no time outfitting the interior with plenty of furniture and décor to welcome guests, says Tuff Shed.

They added an interior stairwell in the barn along for easy access to the loft. The upper level has four twin beds and the lower level has two sets of bunk beds with one full mattress and one twin mattress each, allowing the new building to sleep 10 guests. Walker also added an opening for an air conditioning unit in the barn.

Now called the Bunkhouse, the Tuff Shed building has already housed quite a few happy guests.

“It’s such a great product and they’ve both held up so well,” Walker says.
