This metal building farm building could sit on any ranch, and with a design like this, it could be used just as well for a house as for a barn or a hobby shop, or, as in the case of the people who built the one in the photos, a commercial space. With metal buildings, when you order them from the builders, you can work with them for what design you want, so it’s possible to take a design like this and say “I want it as a barn” or “I want it as a house” and specify how you want your rooms laid out.

These farm and ranch metal building houses are some of the many buildings being made by Lester these days. They caught our attention, so we thought we’d share them (as with all the images on our website, you can make them bigger by clicking on them — even the featured image).

You can use the project number to talk to the builders about this 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.
