Shome® Wins Awards


  • 2014 Building Of The Year Award: In 2014, Greiner Buildings won the Building Of The Year Award for residential homes with one of our Shome® buildings. We show this project to new customers frequently, and it never fails to impress. With the perfect combination of living space, exterior leisure space, shop space, and storage space, the Shome® is truly the number one trendsetting structure on the market today.

Benefits of a Shome®

  • Open Floor Plan: Large, clear span ceilings give customers the flexibility to create an open floor plan without load-bearing walls. A Shome® can span up to 100’ wide providing virtually limitless opportunities for lofts, balconies, second levels or just an open feel to your design.


  • Energy Efficiency: Post-frame construction offers great energy efficiency with thicker wall cavities allowing for more insulation. Fiberglass blanket or closed cell spray foam are both great options to consider. Our fiberglass batts are 8’ wide to minimize seams and gaps, while closed-cell spray foam seals the building envelope and can add to structural integrity.


  • Shop and Storage Space: For some people, a shop is their life. Build the shop of your dreams and work from the comfort of your home. The Shome® is known for its large storage options, which can spaciously accommodate your RV, boat, equipment or hobby collections.


  • Built For You: A Shome® offers our customers an efficient and unique way of life. Some prefer larger shops with a more modest living area, while others prefer the luxury of larger living quarters with a smaller shop. Some prefer both! At Greiner Buildings, we enjoy hearing what our customer’s goals are, as well as their uses for the property. Whether you are sizing up or sizing down, we have ideas and options for you.
