About the guest:
In 2006, Bobby Eaton wanted to build a shed company established on Quality, Customer Service, and Competitive Pricing. At the time, he was running a successful metal roofing and construction company. The dilemma he faced was what to do in the winter months and the rainy season. He is a family man and his family is very important to him. He and his wife are blessed with four sons and four daughters. When Liberty Storage Solutions, LLC was founded, it was with the hope that someday the company would be a blessing for all of his family. With the vision of creating a quality product, he went to work. He purchased a two-acre parcel of land in Rowan County. Like most small businesses, it was trial and error, but he finally perfected his design! As he continued to grow he faced increasingly tough competition and found themselves at a crossroads. After much prayer and contemplation, he decided to continue living by our values of putting God first and trusting in his guiding light. They are excited to move into the future while still holding to the foundational values that the business was established on!
