Charming Metal Hobby Garage

Charming Metal Hobby Garage

What a gorgeous hobby garage from Morton’s Buildings, suitable for any collector, artists, or hobbyist. There is ample space to store a couple of cars, furniture, clothing, or simply used as an artist’s space away from home. The beautiful styling is a draw for this garage, for certainly it looks like more than just a place to store items, or work in. This space can be used for entertaining, meetings, and small parties.

The design is simple, with an angled roof and painted cool and neutral coolers of gray and white; the space has a fresh minimal look, but with so much to offer. This hobby garage comes with a designated porch area for relaxing outside or hosting guests. There is a wonderful overhang to protect projects and guests from inclement weather. This outside porch turns what could have been a basic hobby garage into an all-out creative space.

Impressive Metal Hobby Garage

Metal Buildings January 4, 2016

Exceptional Metal Hobby Garage

This is one of the garage-purposed metal building houses being made by Morton Steel buildings these days. 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 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.

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.

Project Number: B058019111
Location:Starbuck, MN
Dimensions: 42’W x 14’H x 75’L
This hobby garage was built for Dan of Starbuck, MN

Special Features:
Morton’s Hi-Rib Steel
Cupolas
Wrap-Around Porch
Stone Wainscot
Deep Fascia Overhangs
Turkey Tail
Windows w/ Shutters
Morton’s Energy Performer Insulation Package
