DIY Metal Farmhouse Built by a One Man Crew

Metal Buildings January 12, 2016

DIY Metal Farmhouse Built by a One Man Crew

Metal homes + “do it yourself” equals this little metal farmhouse. It was built by its owner, Brock Hammill.

There are just a few details available for this house. You can use the project number to talk to the builders about this house as a starting point. However, we’ve also added some of their other similar residential homes. The idea here is that you’re going to have to talk to the builders anyway, but you can get an idea of what metal homes are options by looking at what has already been built. You can use that as a base for thinking about metal homes as an option, and go and take a look around at what’s out there.

This DIY metal home is a 2 story structure, and has both a front and back porch. It also has 2 bathrooms to accommodate its 3 bedrooms. And there’s a garage and a metal shed.

Stats:  2150 sq. feet , 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 floors, modern shed, porch, rear garage

Workable Poolside Metal Building

Metal Buildings January 7, 2016

Workable Poolside Metal Garage

Could you live in a metal house if it was by a little lake like this one in the country-side, or would you set up a garage by your pool like this one, or maybe a guest house? This is one of the garage-purposed metal building houses being made by Morton Steel buildings these days, although these buildings can be adapted to residential, office, garage or whatever purpose — pool house maybe? — when they’re ordered and designed. It caught our attention, so we thought we’d share it.

It’s an interesting idea, having the garage and house separate, and it has a couple of advantages.

For one, noise in the shop or noise from excited guests is a bit separated from the quiet you’d probably like to have in your house. For another, the structures are separate so each can be modified or moved without disturbing the other. Want to expand on the metal garage: sure. It won’t bother you in the house much. Want to move the metal house to the other side of the property? You don’t have to think about costs and hassle of moving your work or hobby space.

I don’t think I have to talk up the benefits of putting it beside a swimming pool, either!

There are just a few details available for this building. You can use the project number to talk to the builders about this building design as a starting point. The idea here is that you’re going to have to talk to the builders anyway, but you can get an idea of what metal buildings are options by looking at what has already been built.

Metal Storage House with Space For All Stuff

Metal Buildings January 7, 2016

Metal Storage House with Space For All Stuff

Stuff. Some of us spend a lot of time and energy organizing it, accumulating it, parsing it down, and storing it. And some of us don’t always have enough places to store our stuff without taking up room in our houses we’d rather not take up! Well, storage garages are an option, because when you think about the cost of renting a storage unit, as well as the added time and energy required to travel to and from the storage unit rental, buying a storage garage seems relatively not bad. At least if you have space to build it.

Here we have a metal storage garage. Metal buildings are an option for these types of construction projects that can cut down on time and cost. They’re also noted for the ability to take them down or transport them relatively easily. Metal buildings have a number of benefits over other buildings (click here to read about them).

Amazing Metal Building Home With Wrap Around Porch and Energy Performer Insulation Package

Metal Buildings January 7, 2016

Impressive Metal Building Home With Grilling Area

When you think of metal buildings, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Is it plain corrugated walls and a box shape? That’s just not the case when you’re building with steel from an experienced metal home designer / builder who has a ton of projects under their belts already. This is a sturdy type of construction that can be designed to fit right in on green acres or on a city street.

Many people think about having a house out on a farm, and some of us already live out on farms and ranches or large pieces of land. Metal homes as an alternative building method that allows for inexpensive, strong and durable buildings that can also be reused, recycled or modified later on.

The metal home here is designed and built by a company we’ve featured a number of times here on our site: Morton metal buildings — they do a number of different building types. And the job they’ve carried off here is one that I think will catch a lot of attention: a rustic-style farm house that combines residential with equestrian areas.

Looking at the exterior shots (no interior shots available yet), I think a lot of you might agree that the interior work on this ranch house metal home is the real star of this construction project.

Project Number: B070014313

High-Rib Steel Building with an Interior You Have to See

High-Rib Steel Building with an Interior You Have to See

 

The exterior of this metal home is simple … the interior is something else. Here we have a rustic livable space that might catch some eyes. The metal barn home here is designed and built by a company we’ve featured a number of times here on our site: Morton metal buildings — they do a number of different building types. And the job they’ve carried off here is one that I think will catch a lot of attention: a traditional rustic-style farm house that is so basic on the outside — you can imagine this keeps building costs down — the interior becomes almost surprising.

You can see from the photo above and those below (all the photos on our website expand when you click them) that the interior of this metal building home is decorated in a comfortable, traditional style. They’ve covered most of the interior of the building in wood cladding and some of it in stone work, too. This must have cost a few dollars to do! But looking at the interior shots, I think a lot of you might agree that the interior work on this ranch house metal home is the real star of this construction project.

Spectacular Metal Cabana

Could you live in a metal house if it was by a little lake like this one in the country-side, or would you set up a garage by your pool like this one, or maybe a guest house? This is one of the cabana-purposed metal building houses being made by Morton Steel buildings these days, although these buildings can be adapted to residential, office, garage or whatever purpose — pool house maybe? — when they’re ordered and designed. It caught our attention, so we thought we’d share it.

I’ve never considered building a cabana building, but this design would also make a pretty decent metal building home, I think, or maybe even a stylish garage? Maybe with a guest house floor up top?

There’s lots of pictures of this one!

Many people think about having a house out on a farm, and some of us already live out on farms and ranches or large pieces of land. Barn houses and metal homes both are seeing something of a surge of interest lately. Metal homes as an alternative building method that allows for inexpensive, strong and durable buildings that can also be reused, recycled or modified later on, and barn homes are a traditional style of building people are liking for their own homes.

Here we have a combination of both, and not only that, they added wood and stone work to create a livable space that might catch some eyes.
