Get answers to common questions about buying a shed, garage, or cabin from Cherokee Structures.

How do I place an order?

Here is what our normal order process looks like.


First we will want to understand what you are looking for. That is not very complicated! Our online design tool makes it quick and easy to explore your options. Just choose the style you want, the color scheme you prefer, and add all the options you need. Then submit it for quotation or finalize the purchase online. If you want to talk details we’re always happy to do that! Give us a call or come see us at one of our many locations.


Once the details are ironed out we will get your signature and down payment (typically $500 for structures under $10,000), ($2000 for structures over $10,000). This will take us to the next step.

Site Prep and Build

Your order will immediately go into the lineup to be built. In the meantime you can find an appropriate spot for your structure. You might have already picked out a spot but double checking that everything fits and that you are ready for delivery can make the process very smooth. Check out your foundation options here.


After construction is complete you will be contacted about delivery. Once we have a date picked out that works for everyone, we will just need to wait for the big day. The delivery driver will collect any remaining balance after the setup is complete. See how we make the delivery here.

How long does it take to build a structure?

Lead times depend on a few factors, including demand, season, and availability of supplies. Generally, you can expect it to take 5-6 weeks from placing an order to delivery.

Can I see a structure in person?

We have a network of sales lots across eastern Tennessee, western North Carolina, and southwestern Virginia. Visit our Dealer Locator page to find a sales lot closest you.

Where do you deliver structures?

We offer free standard delivery within 100 miles of our manufacturing facility. This covers most of eastern Tennessee, western North Carolina, and southwestern Virginia. After 100 miles, we charge a nominal fee per mile. Contact us if you have questions about delivering to your property.

Do I need to prepare my backyard for delivery?

Our recommendations for site prep can be found on our delivery & installation page. Generally, we need a flat place to deliver the structure, with enough clearance to place the structure. There are different options for site prep – including cinder blocks, gravel, or concrete pad.

What types of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, check, and credit cards for payment of your storage structure. In addition, we offer a rent-to-own option for those who prefer to finance their structure.
