How about a thread to show off your metal building? Post your specs and builder for the rest of us. Tips on doors, lighting, and other things would be great too.

I’m hoping to start mine the end of next month so this thread may be of great help!
We’re doing a 30’x40’ with an interior ‘office’ that’ll be 25’x15’. It’ll have a full bathroom and an open room. Hoping to start a pool about the same time.

Google BnB buildings out of Rockdale. He built mine in 2014 by far the best price and quality for the money. Hardest working guy I have ever met.

Haha!! Nice

We're looking into buiding a 30x40 with 3 12 roll ups, bathroom and a walk thru. Met with a land clearing and pad builder Friday.

He mentioned building the pad at least 5 foot bigger in each direction. Taking out 6-8" of dirt an coming back with 12-14.

Far cheaper in my case, but I am building a barn, not a barndominium. From people that I have spoken with, im getting numbers between $18 and $22 a square foot.

All depends on your floor plan and level of finish.

In our case it was going to be more expensive because of how cut up our plan and roof is. Plus we have to have 70% masonry facade.

As Mike said it all depends on the level of finish out you want to do. Ours was far cheaper than a stick home for sure 2400 sq ft with 12 sq ft of porches and we were at 150-160k that included septic and well.

We built this a little over a year ago in Bertram, I canít remember the exact numbers, but we saved a lot by doing as much as we could ourselves. The metal came from muller. The concrete was by far the biggest expense. Name:  DJI_0012.jpg

Man I really like how you did the two story style storage/work area in the shop. There is so much dead space and that sir is a great place to put all those things you don't use all that often.

As far as insulating a metal shop, what’s the best bang for my buck? I have no idea how much the different types of insulation cost per sq ft.

I went with closed cell spray foam and glad I did. I donít have anything to compare to but I can tell you it flat works. We are living in our RV inside the shop while our house is being built and the coldest itís been inside the shop is 55į even when the outside temp is in the 20/30s. We donít have any heat inside the building. No doubt if it turned into a long term event that it would get colder but I can safely say on average that the inside temp typically stays 25į warmer than the outside temp when itís below 40į.

Weíve built out a full bathroom and included washer/dryer hookups since we are living inside it while the house is being built.

This is what we have in the walls in our shop in Iowa. R-25 vinyl backed R-25 with R-40 blown in above the ceiling. It got down to 10 degrees last night. At 9:00 am I went into the shop. It was 15 degrees outside and 36 inside. I turned on the kerosene/diesel heater and it was up to 55 degrees in about 30 minutes.
