Mini Storage Buildings Made of Steel

Steel mini storage buildings are extremely functional, gaining popularity as satellite offices, toy sheds, self storage units, barns and garages. These units can be constructed by a crew on location, they can come as a pre engineered steel building or they may come as a kit you can do on your own. The primary advantage of steel is that it is one of the sturdiest materials and it's not likely to require any maintenance, so long as it is set up properly.

Long gone are the weathered, dilapidated red and white barns with fallen planks, peeling paint, holes in the ceiling and termite infestations. If you are building a feed storage shed or a barn for your horses, cows, pigs, chickens, sheep and other livestock, then steel building systems are ideal. Metal building kits are quick and easy to set up, often coming in partially-assembled sheets and requiring little more than a couple of screws. You won't have to worry about bug, bee or rodent infestation, nor will you have to contend with mold, mildew or fungus. These mini storage structures are not flammable, so tragic barn fires are less of a concern. Additionally, the price has come down a lot on agricultural steel buildings, making it as affordable as a wood barn, but without all of the maintenance and builder's fees attached. If you were to hire builders to put up your barn, you can expect to pay double, compared to doing it yourself with these easy steel building kits.

The cost of these mini storage buildings ranges by steel building manufacturer. Lester Buildings sells steel barns for $8-$40 per square foot. Metal Steel Buildings offers steel barns ranging from $8,000 to $40,000. A 24 x 32 x 10 pole barn can be purchased from for as low as $4,699. Olympia Steel building manufacturer offers special pricing on horse barns too. Before you buy, it is best to get several different quotes on these steel building kits to ensure the fairest price. Another option to consider is leasing a barn if you are just using it for seasonal storage of hay, corn and animal feed.

Garages are popular mini storage buildings too. Steel garages can cost you 40% less than conventional garages. Additionally, you can customize your garage with different roofing styles, windows, doors and materials. To build your own, you will need to check with the county to see if you'll need a building permit, choose the location, excavate the site, add the foundation, raise the steel sheet walls, bolt the sides in, construct the roof, lift the trusses and add roof sheathing, securing everything into place as you go along. Building your own structure using steel building kits can be a lot of work, but there are also a lot of rewards. You can look upon your new garage with pride, knowing that your hard work saved you thousands of dollars and stands as a testament of what you can accomplish if you put your mind to it.
