Morton buildings
 
Anyone on here have experience with Morton buildings?

Looking at maybe getting a quote from them for a 40x100x14 building.

Be sure and get other quotes too. In my limited experience, Morton is way higher than other companies.

I have a quote from Hansen buildings for both a 40x60x14 ($15,000) and a 40x100x14 ($25,000)

Renagade Steel Building 40x100x14 with two 16x12 roll up doors and one walk door and insulation. ($30,000)

DuroBeam 40x100x14 $30,00

These are all buildings that would need assembled.

Around here on a assemble yourself the local lumber yard,well 6 miles beats everybody.Any Amish in the area ? They are pretty well priced on the assembly .

Around here they say you can break the total cost into (roughly) thirds.
1/3 building cost
1/3 labor to assemble
1/3 for concrete

Morton makes a very nice building, but they are about the most expensive for a pole barn in my area.
They do have some neat stuff, the roofing with the bonded vapor barrier on the roof is a big improvement over the old method of putting plastic between the purlins and the steel.

There is a place down south that makes the tapered leg steel design,
but with bent bars (like bar joist):

Used to be there was a company called "Kentucky steel truss" but I think they
are out of business.

Tim,

I like the general concept here.

I will suggest you go with 16" walls and 14 foot high roll ups. A semi is 13'6" even if you never have to back up a semi, it will help a lot with resale down the road. My next shop will be that.

Also you could do scissor trusses with a 14 foot wall and still have enough height to squeeze in a 14 foot opening on the gable ends.

You are so close to a semi you should just go up a bit and have it.

Big motorhomes are tall too,my shop has 13.6 door openings.

I like the idea of 14' walls and using scissor trusses.

I'm leaning towards going with a wood building. The buildings the feed mill.are in that I work at are all steel and I've noticed it makes changes and additions a challenge. Even something simple like adding outlets requires adding blocking on a wall unless you stick to running conduit on the lowest girt.

My 20x40 living space will be built off the back of the building. Simple slanted roof starting off the gable end of the shop.

Also don't like the idea of reusing tin. At least not for my shop. A large galvalume building just doesn't appeal to me.

I'm zoned AG so building size is only restricted by height. Height is no more then two stories for a accessory building. Setbacks are 30' from side and rear property lines. No more then 30% of the square footage of the building can be in the front yard.

I talked to Georgia Power about getting a 200 amp 230v 3 phase service. Told the engineer that I would set the meter base and run conduit up to the road and pull wire up to their right of way. They would have to bring three phase about 1600' down my road to supply me. Engineer said there would be little or no charge to hook me up.

I'm hoping a $50,000 budget will get me a building, a slab, a well and power hooked up. Basically a shell building. Septic and inside electrical and plumbing etc can be pieced together as I get the money.
