NOBLE — Better Barns, 9242 48th Ave. SE in Noble, is hosting an All Steel Super Center grand opening event today. 

Better Barns General Manager Tyler Mayhan has partnered with All Steel to add All Steel carports, garages and metal buildings to the many types of wooden and steel buildings available for purchase at Better Barns. 

A Better Barns crew will build a storage shed on site during the event, and an All Steel crew will construct a large, metal building so visitors can watch and ask questions. 

In addition, the grand opening will offer discounts on various units complete with option packages, up to 60 free concrete blocks, free cross ties and more. Attendees can have free hot dogs and sodas. Those who register at the event for gift card giveaways need not be present to win.

Mayhan said delivery will be fast on certain building models.

“One big thing,” Mayhan said, “is that customers who buy an All Steel building are guaranteed two-week delivery.”

Mahan outlined Better Barns’ history, explaining that Dallen and Vance Wright own the company that focuses on providing customers with well-constructed buildings to suit their needs. 

The Wrights formerly lived in New Mexico, where Vance gained experience building sheds. When the Wrights moved to Oklahoma, Vance started building sheds in the family’s backyard, and soon the company grew into what it is now. The company offers carports, garages, cabins, barns, weld-up buildings, greenhouse, backyard storage buildings and other structures. 

Although Better Barns was founded in 2002, the Wrights have been in business since 1980. Mayhan said Better Barns focuses on quality, rather than quantity, and he prides himself on customer service.

Mahan invited the public to attend the open house event and watch the construction. For more information, visit betterbarns.net or call 872-7433.
