Anyone had a metal building put up?

Post by 2nd Day » Fri Oct 30, 2020 10:32 am

I am researching metal building companies that will do the slab as well.

Anyone have a recommendation? :-bd

Carolina Buildings did mine in Florida. It was a 24x30 with two rollup doors 12' high walls. The building was $7500 and the slab with 30x12' driveway was another $7000. I ran my own electric at approx' $500. That was 6 years ago when steel was cheaper.

That's very reasonable. Thanks!

If I were to do it again, Id go with 30x30.. If I could afford it, 50x40. Its so kool having your own shop. I have a Lift in one stall and Industrial shelving on the back wall. Also, consider, that upgrading to commercial grade frame is only about a 25% increase in cost.

Other than strength of course, are there any other benefits to Ibeam construction?

We get hurricane run off in my area and the occasional higher winds, but more concerned about ice and snow in the winter and thunderstorms here.

Just had my 28x50 done. I had to furnish the slab myself as the carport place (MT Airy area) didn't do the slab. Slab was $7K and has a turn down (per codes). Building has 2-9x8 roll up doors, 1-6x6 roll up (zero turn mower), 1-72x80 framed opening (for double door I'll install), and 1-36x80 walk door. 10' side walls. The roof height will allow a 2 post lift (hopefully in a few years). Building came to $17K including taxes. The building was just done a couple of weeks ago.

I went with a pole barn co..I'm in New Jersey and they only service PA, NJ, DE I believe. Small mom n pop type company.
30x48x12 with 4" concrete and 6 in 1 bay for just under 25k. 2 overhead insulated doors 12'widex11'tall and 1 36" man door. also added 12" overhangs on all sides and a 2" skylight panel the length of the 48' wall.( If I did it over I'd do away with the light panels...sun hits them and ya cant see nothing for a few hours. I'm gonna frost paint em)
In NJ pole barn is cheaper than carport style cause of the foundation needed for code BS.
Add radiant heat..at least have the tubing in the concrete for later hookup (you'll thank me later)
