Providing Strong Foundations for Investments

By investigating occupancy rates, pricing, and land acquisition costs in the market, we help you determine the best location for your facility. Traffic is important, too. That’s why we carefully consider traffic patterns at potential locations, zoning laws, and costs of utilities. We want you to reach an informed decision. Because we’ve been in the storage business for decades, we can work fast to get you the information you need in a timely manner. Once we’ve done our due diligence, we work with you to design a storage facility to meet your needs and are on-hand from start to finish to ensure that every aspect of the design and construction is completed properly.

Team Up with Pella Building Systems

Over 30 years ago, Pella Building Systems was founded by the Goodyk family in the heart of Iowa. Since then, we’ve offered our expertise in designing and building self-storage systems for clients looking to develop, own, and/or operate across the United States. We work with you to create the plan that makes the most financial sense for you.

Our Services

From initial planning to final walk-through, we promise to be by your side, making each decision easier. Whether you’re thinking of building a new storage facility or making changes to a current site, we’re ready to help.


More and more, people are looking into owning or investing in storage facilities. While we won’t tell you there isn’t work involved, we know that can be worth it for a number of reasons.

Growing Demand
of Storage Facilities

With people living busier lives, apartments, condominiums, and townhomes are becoming more popular. However, those homes often don’t have a basement, large garage, or additional storage space. Enter: self-storage.

Make Passive

Unlike being a landlord to a residential building, when you own a storage facility, you can choose to be as active as you wish. Because many self-storage units are accessible by their renters 24/7, on-site management is not always necessary. By installing security systems, you can keep an eye on things without being there. This makes it an excellent source of passive income.

Steady Money

When a recession hits or a downturn of the housing market begins, many businesses can suffer. In fact, most businesses feel the pain. However, that’s not traditionally the case with self-storage facilities. In fact, if homeowners make the decision to downsize in these situations, they’ll likely need to find a storage facility to keep their belongings safe.


Pride in our work stems from knowing we’ve helped our customers make solid financial decisions that will serve them well into the future. When they’re kind enough to leave reviews, we know we’ve done our job.

 Just finished my last building with Pella Buildings this spring. I am out of land or I would be building more. Over the past 10 years we have built 6 buildings and I couldn't be happier with the decision we made to use only Pella Buildings. Keith and team have delivered everything they said they would and more. We have had a few small issues, like the snow plow hitting a building column and each time we put up a new building, Keith would have the team fix any issues we had with our buildings. I am a contractor myself and looked at buying a steel building and erecting myself but each time I did the money, what I would save was not enough to justify the hastle of managing the project myself. Each time I would build a building Keith and I would negotiate the contract, I would provide a level lot and the rest was in their hands. After 10 years the only maintenance I have had is a hole from a snow plow, a small gap where a starling built a nest and a garage door out of adjustment, this is on 160 units. If I had to do it over the only thing I would change, is I would have built them sooner. Thanks to Keith and team for making our storage business successful.

 THANK YOU for all your time and patience on this project. Dave went to great effort to help us sort out financing for this project. Keith had several good suggestions from start to finish. Randy's crew did a great job, cleaned up well and go the extra distance to make it easy to deal with. Barb, thanks so much for helping us through the intial phase for our office set up. We are encouraged and already looking to prepare a site for a 3rd building and look forward to working with you all.

 I'm writing this letter to express my gratitude to you and your company for the tremendous job in building my self storage facility. From the beginning to the end of this project your support and personal knowledge of the self storage industry has been priceless to me and my family. I must tell you, that my reluctance in beginning my first self storage facility was put to rest by knowing both of you had my back all the way. I can't say enough good things about the crew you sent to erect the structure. They were timely, courteous, and proficient.

In closing I would like to thank you both for starting me out in the Self Storage Industry. We have not totally finished with our first project and we are already making expansion plans for the balance of the property. I can also tell you that Pella Building Systems will most definitely be part of these expansions.
