Douglas Meadows, owner of Meadow’s Buildings, displays a sampling of the portable buildings offered by his company.
Founded in 1998, Meadow’s Buildings has sales facilities in Claremore and Catoosa. The company is owned and operated by the Meadows family and can build its various portable buildings on-site or build and deliver them. The company is a member of the Home Builders Association of Greater Tulsa, as well as the Tulsa Better Business Bureau. Customers are guaranteed 100 percent satisfaction for every product sold by Meadow’s Buildings.
Owner Douglas Meadows says, “We use high-quality materials on our standard and custom-built products. I feel that both our quality and service are the finest available.” Just a few of the products offered by Meadow’s Buildings include: horse barns, loafing sheds, metal and wood barns, metal and wood buildings, homes, car ports and custom playhouses. The company has six basic styles from which to choose and can custom-build any product to a customer’s specifications.
For customer convenience, Meadow’s Buildings offers its rent-to-own program. After choosing this option, customers pay a security deposit plus the first month’s payment. After 36 months, the building belongs to the customer. With no credit checks and no early pay-off penalty, the rent-to-own option is a great way to purchase a building. To many Meadow’s Building customers, it just makes sense to participate in the program rather than pay a monthly premium to rent storage space.
Pole barns, which come in standard sizes of 20’ x 20’, as well as 40’ x 60’, make great barns, shops or garages for a huge variety of uses. Meadow’s Buildings can pour concrete slabs for the permanent placement of barns or buildings if specified by the customer. A full selection of accessories from which to choose is also available for barns.
Pictured is a side loft building. Measuring 12’ x 20’, it is a great solution to storage problems.
All buildings sold by Meadow’s Buildings are constructed of treated wood. Trim material is made of rough cedar, siding is standard, all door hardware is black, and each shingled roof carries a 30-year warranty. According to Meadows, only the best materials are used on his buildings. He says he prides himself on the high-quality portable buildings offered by Meadow’s Buildings.
“I enjoy satisfying the needs of my customers with a variety of products,” Meadows mentions. “We offer everything from small offices to lake cabins, horse barns, garages, shops, storage sheds, car ports and everything in between.” Every product they build by Meadow’s Buildings, standard or custom, has options that include windows, lofts, ramps and more.
Meadow’s Buildings has sample products on display at both sales locations. The Claremore site is located one mile north of town on Highway 66. The Catoosa facility is one block south of Pine Street on Highway 66. The great-looking buildings might just be the solution to your work or storage problem.
