Benefits of Prefab Guard Houses

Depending on your property needs, guard houses can be outfitted with any specific lighting, wiring, networking, HVAC, and restrooms.

Prefab Guard Houses…

  • Provide A Necessary Security Checkpoint: Prefab guard houses serve as a critical part of your mountain community’s security plan both at entry/exit ways and checkpoints within. As many mountain communities are planned to be within areas with limited access by the public and can be miles away from local emergency services, guard houses can play a very important role for security, fire, medical assistance, even wildlife issues. Customized prefab guard houses can be equipped with many security features designed to keep you, your guests, and your property safe.
  • Provide A Welcome Space: Prefab guard buildings buildings can be customized to serve as a great facility for hospitality as Welcome or Check-In points for guests arriving at your community. Larger guard houses can serve as a walk-in check-in space.

Blending In

  • Exterior Paint: Natural colors like greens, browns, and blues will help your guard shack blend seamlessly into the natural backdrop. If the guard house is going to be paired with another building, opt for matching paint colors so the new building is clearly marked as a part of that property. If you’re looking to install guard houses in multiple locations around a mountain community, make sure all of the houses are painted the same colors (and have clear but non-distracting signage) so guests can locate them easily.
  • Landscaping: Intentional landscaping will help your guard houses to be visually appealing and blend into the natural surroundings. Adding native plants and bushes, using present trees as well as topographical elements such as rocks and boulders, will help the buildings to be less of a distraction while maintaining a security presence.
  • Lighting: Adding light fixtures that provide ambiance while offering safety is important, as many mountain communities may have limited street lighting. Small exterior lights that match the theme of the area will help approaching guests to locate security and checkin points after dark.
