Spectacular Metal Building Homed Decorated with Simple, Rustic Charm

Find Out How This Spectacular Metal Building Homed Is Decorated

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. 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.

Impressive Metal Building House for Small Families

Metal Buildings January 4, 2016

Lovely Metal Building Abode for Small Families

Many people think about having a small house out on a farm, and some of us already live out on farms and ranches or large pieces of land. These small farm-style houses have always been popular with people living in the countryside, but building homes out of metal is something fairly new for farm residences.

The farmhouse here is designed and built by a company we’ve featured a number of times here on our site: Morton Steel 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 of a size just about right for a couple or small family.

You might have noticed: there’s also a 3-door garage. Whether you need to park your farm equipment in it or keep a few vehicles in from the elements, this is one feature these metal buildings have almost built into them — the ability to add space for non-residential parts of a house like shop spaces, hobby shops, and livestock areas.

Impressive Metal Building Home with Fire Pit Area

Metal Buildings January 2, 2016

Stunning Metal Building Home with Fire Pit Area

This fire engine red metal building might not be what you typically expect from a metal home. 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, and 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. 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, both simple and large enough to furnish with all the homey features needed in the countryside.

There’s also a firepit near the house so these metal home owners can sit out with their family or friends and enjoy the evening while keeping warm — and maybe eating some hotdogs and marshmallows.

The garage, too, is notable: a good sized that can fit a couple vehicles plus a boat, plus storage rack area for your hobbies and overflow of the stuff you keep at home.

This Metal Home is the Perfect Size for a Couple or Small Family

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 at a size just about right for a couple or small family. The metal house 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 with a rust and salmon color scheme.

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 also a comfortable, traditional style. You can see that they’ve covered most of the building in wood cladding and some of it in stone work, including that outdoor seating area in the photo. 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.

Metal Buildings for Farms and Ranchs

Metal Buildings for Farms and Ranchs

This traditional red barn uses a modern building method: metal construction, for strength, durability, long-lasting re-usability, and economy.

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).

There are just a few details available for this building. 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.

Project Details
End Use: Farm & Ranch
Building Type: Ag Storage/Shop
Location:
Pecatonica, IL
Dealer / Rep: Allen Miller
Project #: 218453
Notes: 4/12 roof pitch, Clopay overhead door, Hayfield windows, flying gable, hip porch, (2) cupolas
Dimensions: 60′ x 136′ x 18′
Primary Color: Barn Red
Secondary Color: Evergreen

Lester Buildings is a leading manufacturer and builder of custom pre-engineered, post-frame building systems for farm, livestock, equine, hobby, and commercial purposes. They also sell material-only packages. What sets Lester’s metal buildings apart? According to the company, “three things: a professional, collaborative planning experience from concept to completion; customization; and value.”

This Great Metal Building Design for a Ranch-Style House or Hobby Shop

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 hobby shop. 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 hobby shop” or “I want it as a house” and specify how you want your rooms laid out.
