A metal house that can handle the elements, no matter what kind. That must be what this one is prepared for if its built on the Northwest Coast, where there is plenty of alternating rain, sun and snow.
This one is the work of Jeff Hill, a metal building that is clad throughout the interior in wood. It has plenty of glazing as well to take in a lot of light.
Metal building homes might have surprised you with the variety and style they’re being built in nowadays, and this one is probably no exception. I’ve seen quite a few metal homes now, even farm homes using metal construction for the roof, garage or barn, or the whole thing, but this one here has a feature that might have caught your eye as much as it did mine: that long sun room along the length of the building.
With a high quality metal frame, load-bearing can be handled and you can use a lot of non-supportive walls and glass. Did you see the photos of the interior of the sun room? The interior of the house is also nice, with a simple homey style.
They also used some stonework which adds to the style in addition to being the insulation for the wood burning fireplace.
Not everyone is seeking a home with a large floor plan with room for add-ons. For many families, a simple space that serves all of their basic needs is more than sufficient. For smaller families, a bungalow home may be just the type of space they are seeking. It is small, simplistic and perfect for the minimalist.
This minimal-look of this bungalow was made by Morton Buildings and is a brilliant design for smaller families. The natural colors of the home and the roof done in off-white and taupe, pair well with the luxurious green scenery which gives homeowners a version of their own little paradise. The lawn is large enough for children to play safely and to host family get-togethers and cocktails parties for friends and acquaintances.
Besides small families, those who live alone, the elderly or singles, would enjoy the clean, simplistic look of this small bungalow. It’s spacious enough to live a full life but small enough for a senior or single person to take care of easily.
Outside the home is simple but classy with the porch and carport being a beautiful accessory to the home itself. The way the carport is built, with five equal height supports, it gives the outside of the home a taller, more expansive look. This adds a luxury element to the home that it otherwise would not have.
The carport is a convenient accessory which will protect the car and drivers from having to deal with inclement weather. The car, however, is easier to get to as opposed to a closed-in garage because the carport is an open space. With a wooden A-shaped roof, the car is protected from constant sunlight, rain, and winter storms, which in the long run, ruins the paint job.

This awe-inspiring home is an amazing find for a family seeking to live the good quiet life. Though the space is large with a pool and stables, the home has the look of a warm country house that would suit even a smaller family seeking a comfortable dwelling. The epic pool is a major draw, particularly for those who enjoy socializing with family and friends.
This home is a steel building built to last through generations. It is one thing to own a home that you and your immediate family can live in and love but it is another to have a home that can be passed down through the ages. If you’re seeking a property that can be a home for a lifetime, this full metal building is a great and sensible choice.
Could you live in a metal house if it was by a little lake like this one in the country-side? This is one of the barn home design metal buildings being made by Lewis Creek these days, although these buildings can be adapted to residential, office, garage or whatever purpose a person needs. This “barndominium” on a farm caught our attention.
Of course, the setting is important when it comes to how a building strikes you, and this simple structure (it’s one of the most basic metal home layouts after all) has been set in a ranch setting and decorated in rustic but colorful decor to create the impression it does from the photos.
Wood flooring and wood ceilings with vari-colored painted walls, ceiling lights embedded, a metal stove with chimney, plenty of inviting furniture, and a stone and gravel floored patio type area on the side of the metal house are features you can get a better look at in the pictures.
A metal two story home home large enough for a growing family, and with a double garage to keep a family’s cars in from the elements (or to be converted into work spaces).
You probably noticed from the photo the upper story’s large outside patio, which would give a pretty decent view of the surroundings, whether the metal home was set up in the countryside like this particular one was, or on a residential street, to watch the kids come home after school.
The interior style is comfortable, bright and colorful, as you can also see from the photos, where the bright vari-colored cushions appear even brighter against the flat white walls.
Combining metal building style ease and flexibility with lumber stylings, this cabin is set in a natural setting and it looks pretty relaxing and comfortable, doesn’t it?
It’s a two-story, and they’ve opted to make the living room a double-high ceiled one (although of course with metal buildings you can change this to suit your preferences when you pick one out and work on the design specifications), and they’ve built a wooded deck around the first floor, and a gravel walk around that.
That wrap-around porch goes around two sides of the metal home, leaving the back of the house without it.
The interior, as you can see from the photos, is finished in a clean, simple white with lightly stained wood finishing. The finishing matches the furniture in this one.
It has a bathroom on each floor, and there’s a bedroom on the ground floor as well as a kitchen. On the second floor, there’s a loft which can also be used as a bedroom.

Some of us live in the cooler (or colder) northern climates where we really have to think about insulation and heat conservation when we plan a house. Metal homes can be built very basically, and can be set up without any insulation, but that wouldn’t do in a cold location. Here we have a metal home that was built to withstand the sub-zero temperatures that mean they get to enjoy a white Christmas sometimes.
