The price per SF should go down as the SF total goes up.

The price per SF of a house is a no comparison to an empty barn.
In a barn there are no kitchen or baths or interior walls.

I built a 36X50 X10 back in 2004. 2 walk doors 2 roll doors. All windstorm rated. $24K, Bare structure. Wind rating just about doubled the cost. But it held up to Hurricane Harvey with no issues.


Your quote doesn't seem too bad to me.

So, I got 2 bid proposals from Steel Structures America today for 24X36X10Ft $35300 30X40X10Ft 36K I don't think either is out of line based on feedback here on SFT and my own research. But, it's more than I want to spend at the tender age of 59 and a half give or take a couple months. I'm going to check with Cleary buildings which serves this area and a local contractor B&E builders about a stick built garage. I'm thinking if I downsize to 24X28 or 24X24 don't get it insulated and maybe go to sliding shed doors I might get this down where I can at least consider a build without trying to sell a kidney.

Stop in at Menards and go to the contractor desk and have them do a build on the computer where you can select, add and delete their standard packages and get some prices. You can always hire your own install crew.

Don’t you fuckers threaten me with a good time.

I can show up ready to work by the crack of noon. My specialties include standing on your cord, cutting something twice and it’s still too short and being able to clearly see both the little AND big tick marks on a tape measure.

Gosh, Neal, I never knew you were that inexperienced.

What about measuring a 20 ft stud with a 16ft tape and ripping it off the spring, and stepping on a square so it will wrap around corners. What about cutting the extension cord with the saw by "accident', and spilling coke on the assembly plans, dropping the nails and mixing the 3.5 and 2 inch nails together when you pick them up?
You should work on an apology also. People like that

It should be something like, "Uhh...sorry"
