All of our vaulted wood walls are constructed using double hurricane clips at all stud connections, on the top and bottom plate for maximum wind up lift protection. For shear wall strength, we run rigid T-wall bracing on the front and back of all walls to protect against lateral or sudden movement, which can result from heavy wind loads.
This vaulted wall system combined with our monolithic roof structure constructed with #1 2 x 6′s will deliver for you. It will provide the strength, good looks, and durability that you expect when you purchase a Lark Building.
The Side-Gable Lapsider is also available with our outstanding Accu-Steel frame giving you the same look and pleasing appearance as our wood Lapsider.
When you closely examine this building system, we are sure you will conclude that you too, deserve the best.
Accu-Steel Frame Buildings
The Lark Accu-Steel frame building is the biggest advancement in portable building design and construction in the last 40 years. We manufacture the Accu-Steel using one of the most precise and advanced rollforming systems available. The strength, quality, and durability of this steel frame system are truly awesome. The Accu-Steel is manufactured using a totally new concept of rollforming and assembly. A system and method of steel stud construction that is unprecedented.

For years, steel stud construction has utilized a system of U-channels for the top and bottom plates and C-channels for the studs. When using this system, the U-channels and studs have to be measured and marked for center placement. This system lends itself to mistakes in measuring and stud placement. Using this archaic method of fabrication and assembly compromises the accuracy and quality of the finished product.
We manufactured the Accu-Steel building using a state of the art computerized rollformer and software system. This system utilizes C-channels for all structural components, the top and bottom plates as well as the wall studs. This amazing system measures and notches the C-channel for precise stud location. It dimples and punches the C-channels and studs for perfect fastener location and alignment. The building structure created by this rollforming system looks like it was made by a metal working craftsman. Everything on this building system fits and finishes like you expect.
The frame of the Accu-Steel is rollformed from heavy duty 18 gauge G-90 galvanized material that not only give you superior strength and durability, but also provides needed rust protection.
If you are interested in a portable building, you owe it to yourself to critically evaluate this new high tech building system. See why we are sure you will agree that strength, quality, and value like this does not come along every day.
Great Reasons to Buy an Accu-Steel Building
- Steel does not warp, split, crack or creak;
- Steel has the highest strength to weight ratio of any building material;
- Steel is not vulnerable to termites or any type of organism;
- Steel does not burn or add fuel to the spread of fire;
- Steel has less probability of damage in high winds, stronger connections (screwed vs. nailed);
- Steel is dimensionally stable; it does not expand or contract with moisture content.
- Steel produces less scrap and waste (2% for steel vs. 20% for wood);

Floor Mortise Splice and Bolted Skid
Floor Skid Fabrication
While other manufacturers use two 2 x 6’s nailed together for the all important base structure or floor skids of their buildings, we at Lark use only solid 4 x 6’s that are precision trimmed, tapered, and dadoed for our floor skids. When we require skids that are longer than our available timbers, we mortise the splice and make the connection using six 4″ galvanized lag bolts. This assures the uncompromising strength and durability of our buildings.
Floor Skid End Double Lag-Bolted and Hurricane Clipped
Floor Frame Assembly
All of our floor joists are connected to the skids by being nailed and lag bolted at each dado to assure that the base of our buildings have superior wind uplift protection. On the skid ends, we not only double lag bolt our headers at a 45 degree angle to the skids, we also hurricane clip them for additional holding power.
Floor 23/32″ T and G Plywood Installed
One of the most outstanding features of our Lark floor system is the way we connect our 23/32″ treated plywood to our floor cross members.
We don’t use nails that can back out and weaken the floor. We use only plated deck screws that give the floor more strength and rigidity than nails. When we place this 23/32″ panel on 16” centers we are able to give you a floor loading of 125 P.S.F. The reason we use this floor loading is to insure that the super structure of the building is adequately supported and that the integrity and stability of the Unit is not compromised.
