Metal Building Ranch with Utility Building with Waterwheel and Pond

Metal Buildings December 12, 2015

Metal Building Ranch with Utility Building with Waterwheel and Pond

Not only does this Garden Prairie metal ranch have a large farm building. Take a look at that little utility shed there. With it’s own waterwheel! And a pond behind it and rock and gravel around it. A distinctive touch!

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.

Metal Buildings for Homes OR Barns

Metal Buildings for Homes OR Barns

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. 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.

Metal Building Houses as an Option for Residential Family Homes

Metal Buildings October 29, 2015

This is one of the residential home metal buildings being made by Lester these days. It caught our attention, so we thought we’d share it.

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.
