    Hi all, I have an opportunity to purchase 10 archers of land and build a storage facility on a major highway that runs through our city. I am uncertain of the average cost (average Per unit) for building such a facility. I am also uncertain of what most banks require as a down payment for building from scratch in Iowa and all the local code and taxes that I would have.

    What I am trying to do is put the costs to together and see if it would be feasible for me to try and proceed. Can someone point me in the right direction where I can find any information on building a facility from scratch and what types of pitfalls I may encounter along the way?

    All for now

    Jack, first welcome to SST! There's a wealth of information from developers, managers, and vendors available here. For a start do a forum search (top of the page) for new construction cost, or any other topic you want info on. If you find a response that is addressing what you want to know, you can either private message the sender or post a reply, which will reintroduce the topic and you'll get additional responses. Best of luck with your project!

        A lot of great ideas. I will give you my thoughts and opinions but each faciltity is unique and each location presents its own positives and negatives.

        If you have no advertising budget or very little, I would start with the following.

        spidey senses, gotta love them... in our area anytime someone inquires about "smallest unit" and "access hours" we are on guard.. I had one the other day who wanted the smallest then asked if we accept checks after refusing to say what she's storing other than "boxes"....

        I won't blow unless I absolutely have to. I prefer broom and dustpan. As far a "hacks", I'll get the extension cords out and a shopvac on the roofs when its time to clean gutters of leafs, dusting doors are super quick if you get a California king duster from wally world in the auto section....
