    I know alota of people are interested in barns.

    After a few years getting to this point we are finally are barn up. This is a
    metal structure. The company we bought it from is STG SteelBuildings. We are very happy with how solid it is. It went from metal on the ground to roofed in, in 4 days. If you did the whole building sided in metal It would take 5 to 6 days.

    Wow. That looks really nice and 4 days!! Cool.

    Can I ask a completely uncouth (is that a word?) question? How much does that kind of barn cost? And what size is it?

    24x36 with two ten foot wings and the second floor is 24x36 as well.

    You can buy the package for somewherein the 15-20000.00 range Putting it up is extra as is the slab, It can be done on your own, we just do not have the time this summer.

    I like that as a basis for a house....

    Looks good and sturdy.

    Congratulations. I think you need to have a picnic under the roof without the sides - like a pavailion - before you get it's normal usage.
