If you have ever dreamed of having a workshop, a metal building kit can give you the opportunity to create the ideal space to work, repair, or create, in a durable and secure building that fits your every need.
Steel workshops in every size
If you only need a small workshop for some extra crafting space, you might want to construct a small building that is close to your home for easy access. If you are serious about your hobbies, or have a business that needs more room, you may be looking for a much larger building. Metal building kits even allow you to have separated interior areas, possibly for small-scale manufacturing and assembly, or offices. These kits are designed to fit your needs, large or small.
Metal roof styles to fit your climate
You can choose from three distinct roof styles to fit your taste and the weather conditions in your area. Regular metal roofs are pointed at the apex and are curved where the roof meets the walls, and roofing panels are installed horizontally. Boxed-eave roofs are like regular roofs, but the walls meet the roof at a point (similar to a house). On vertical roofs, the strongest of the three designs, the roofing panels are installed vertically, allowing snow and water to run off easily. Vertical roofs are recommended for locations that get a lot of snow and rain.
If your local jurisdiction requires certification of the roof design for snow load or wind, it can be provided as part of the building package, without the need to hire an architect or engineer.
Metal workshops provide space versatility
Fabricated metal buildings give you the ability to customize the size of the building, colors, interior wall layout, and even the ventilation of your new workshop. You can select the style, size, and number of doors and windows, and there are multiple options for the color of the walls and trim. When customizing your workshop, you choose the details and design that work for you.
Metal buildings are durable and affordable
Metal building kits are made from 100% American-made steel, which is resistant to insect infestations, rust, and corrosion. This gives your valuables strong protection and requires less building maintenance. We offer long-term warranties that are superior to traditional stick-built construction.
Because the cost of steel is relatively low compared to other building materials (such as stone, wood, or brick), choosing a steel workshop is almost always less expensive. When you buy factory-direct and do the installation yourself, you save even more.
After the design process is complete, the components of your workshop are manufactured to your specifications, and then shipped direct to your site. Assembling a steel building is very straightforward, lowering the cost of construction and reducing the risk of costly mistakes in the field. In many cases, your new workshop can be constructed on your slab in just a few days.

With so many advantages, such as versatility, strength, and affordability, it is easy to see why metal building kits are quickly becoming a popular alternative to ground-up traditional construction. Traditional building is expensive and construction times are unpredictable. Choosing a metal building for your workshop ensures that you will get exactly what you want, at a cost that just may surprise you.
