Default Barndo business must be good

I am having problems getting quotes. I have sent plans to 3 people. I got 1 quote in less than 24 hrs. Nothing from the other 2 in more than 10 days. I have also tried numerous times to call another and get no return call.

I hate to go with just one quote but the price seemed reasonable and he has a good reputation.

that's just builders in general. If you find one that is organized and trust worthy, hang on to them.

Who would be the best for a pre fab metal building ? We are thinking of building a 30 x 50 and building living quarters inside, I have just now started looking around.

Take into account the service provided by the one quote you got, their reputation, and the fact that it's priced about where you thought it would be. Give that guy your business. My .02.

If they won't call you to try to earn your business, where will they be when there is a problem during construction?

I had the same problem but mine is nearly done now. Good luck. Not sure where you are trying to build it but I ended up using Tyler Building Solutions and they have done a good job for me. If you need my guys contact number just send me a PM.

And I thought it was just me. I have gone through the same thing with all sorts of things. I don't understand why folks don't want cash money for services. With my barndo I had Golden Crescent Construction of Victoria bid on it, took my plans there, sat down and talked with them and they never got back with me. It's beyond me on how these places stay in business.
Long story short I am doing it myself. I can depend on me

Leaning this way. Kind of goes against what I know. I have been in masonry estimating for more than 15 years. I always have to bid against several others and I get quotes and compare prices on my materials.

I talked to him last week. What I am building does not work with what they are building

Went through something similar just recently. Contacted about 6 companies and got 3 quotes. Nobody seemed in a hurry either. Just gotta be patient and contact as many as you can.

Many have done went crazy too- -and now custom home builders are doing them and have them often costing more than a traditional home instead of the nearly half they used to be. We will be moved in ours 5 years tomorrow. Time flies..... I have wrote many since mine and the cost to build keeps going higher and higher. People using these kit barns instead of a steel barn type builder that knows how to do it vs a kit

I dropped by buddy's place to start his heaters up on his new barndo, and knowing about what he paid for it I was truly disappointed!! I would have guessed that he got a standard built with more for less? Small master br & bath , split bunk room , 2 half bath all kinds of spartan! but what do I know
