Not bad I had right at $12,000 in mine for a 30x40 with a 15X40 front porch but I did everything bu the slab myself and I had 2 5/8 pipe I built main frame out of only bough C perlin and metal and had slab poured. I did all the work myself because I'm a cheap arse

I got an estimate a couple months ago on a 40x60, with 2 man doors, a roll up door and a couple windows and the price, including normal amount of dirt work and the concrete slab, was about $18/sq ft finished. The builder is local who's been in business 20 years and has built multiple large barns for my dad over the years. He said 30x40 and smaller, usually run around $20-$21/sq ft finished and once you get to around 40x50 the price is down to around $18-$19. Over hangs for parking tractors, equipment etc were extra but really cheap per sq ft. I can't remember the cost, but it was cheap space since there were no side walls.

Hope that helps.

True, but it is truss VS I-beam so not exactly apples to apples. Also need to adjust for door upgrade, probably trim upgrade as well.

The Mueller 40x60 Standard series will have cold formed end walls and I beam clear span frames, we do not manufacture trusses. It also has a 14'x14' opening in each end wall for an overhead door.

yea I emailed them for a comparison and they got me this

Mike,

Here are the MAJOR differences:

On the main page it specifies that they sell Steel Building Components (pieces like roofing and siding). Not the same as an all steel building.

Not made with solid IBeam steel: they use hollow tube steel w/ wood (Do you want a wood building?)

This is not a durable structure, itís a tent. The most important pieces to having an all steel, solid building are not included in this building.
All steel Ibeams are very important for having a solid, durable building. This is why there is not a warranty on their structure.

Not Wind Rated
No Warranty on structure

Their prices expired 8/29/14

You definitely do not want this building. Buying this building is a waste of good money.

J&I is a good company and my guess is prices haven't gone up since 8/14.

I built IBeam as well, but MANY if not most are built with square tubing, trusses, and purling. Not sure where the "wood" they refer to comes in. I do recommend treated wood around windows to reduce sweating. The buildings are basic and all metal. There are many upgrades available, including I beams, but they put these out for starting price. And they are the only company I know of that does it.

Not sure what the price difference between trusses and beams would be, but don't think it is that much. Man thing for me was the open area that beams allowed. Dad built with trusses, and his seems every bit as strong as mine.


I just realized I never posted this yesterday before my meeting...

Do not use US Metal Buildings! I was in the process of buying one from them yesterday. I was putting 25% down. I gave them all the information they needed. They said they would send me the papers to e-sign and then the payment would go through. Well they sent me the papers in the middle of my sons baseball game and kept calling my phone(which my wife was answering because I was coaching) and being pushy and a-holes, complaining that they couldn't leave work until the papers were signed. So i called them back when the game was over and after I reviewed the papers. I left a message to just cancel the order because they had the wind rating wrong on the paperwork, but mainly because I didnt like they way they talked to my wife. I can do business with someone else locally that would treat me alot better. So the manager calls back and I tell him what happen, and he responds with,"I was on the first phone call when you talked to the Ken, and I knew from the sound of your voice that you were a 29 year old LOOSER!" That is a direct quote. Then he continue to tell me that my wife and I can F off! I lost it and said somethings back, but eventually hung up. If you look up reviews on them they are a terrible company, and I wish I would have done my research before I even gave them a chance. So fair warning...stay away from US Metal Buildings, they also operate under other company names so do your research, unlike me!

Are you in an area where it your building needs a permit and engineering of slab and for wind load? If so you won't be able to use some building that are available.

I did a 40x60x12 a year and a half ago with 2ea 12x12 roll up doors, 2 walk thru doors and 6 windows on an engineered slab with a 120 MPH wind load for low 40's
Price isn't bad and you get what you pay for

Wow. I may have to get a quote from these guys. They sound like they need to get a few calls from interested buyers.

seems a little expensive but depends on the area. A local guy to me (DFW) paid for a 40x60x12:
"Just under 40k...plus some extra concrete for the drive. 2 - 12x12 panel doors, 1 - 3x7 entry door & 1 3x3 window...with foam insulation"
