Our potential customer had originally seen this picture right here on The Building Journal and wanted to know if he could build the garage first and add the RV cover at a later time after more of the property was cleared and available. We decided that given the size of the RV and the layout that it might be better to build a separate RV cover at a later time. So we came up with this concept art that also incorporated the existing building already on the property.
The customer was looking to store both the RV and 6-8 cars with a little room left over. They decided that an insulated 40x50x14 with a walk in door and (2) 12sx12 doors would work. We will continue to add updates here and read below to see the story from the beginning. If you have questions you can email [email protected] or call (918) 258-0070.

We are going to document this build from concept to completion to give you a better idea of the process. We were contacted by a potential customer in September about creating a garage for his collector cars. The customer had seen a previous building and wanted something similar but had slightly different needs. We drafted this initial concept to show how the building would be positioned in relation to an existing structure and also we planned for a future addition of an RV cover for their Motorhome. We will be going through the whole process from beginning to end right here and will add more in the days and weeks to come!
We were exited to work with the customers general contractor to facilitate a breezeway from the house to the shop which now has additional living space. As always call us at (918) 258-0070 or email [email protected]

We are happy to show off the very simple plan for DIY Home#10. We have been quiet lately because we have been busy. There will be many more of these coming in the next few days and weeks and weeks so stay tuned.

Introducing House #9. This is just another idea. The link above outlines the details but like any of our house shells we build on a four foot center so that framing does not need to be added. This included a center divider to separate the garage from the living space. Let us know what you think or any questions you have (918) 258-0070 or [email protected]

It is not new but this a far better example of our Hawaiian or king blue and the new lap siding. Lap siding is the same price as the vertical option and provides not only a great look but a stiffer over all panel.
We are super exited to announce our all new lap siding. It will be priced the same as the vertical sheeting and in addition to being a little stiffer than the traditional panel it gives a very professional and finished look that is very different than the horizontal or vertical sheeting. Also wainscoting is free just as it is with the traditional horizontal sheeting.
Happy new year!
We are back in the office and doing our best to catch up on two weeks worth of correspondence. We just wanted everyone to know we are once again offering black sheet metal. This is not the best picture but it is very sharp looking in person especially with white or gray trim. We also had a great one with the barn red that really turned out great. Let us know what you think and keep the questions coming. (918) 258-0070

We have been very focused on or steel home projects but we do not want anyone to think we forgot about barns. This is a 66x40 commercial horse stable that has left nothing left out. The guys are still working out all of the options but as seen it should be around $84,000 installed. Obviously as with everything we do, we can make whatever changes you see fit to make sure it fits your needs. Let us know what yo think.

We have a lot of exciting things going on. First we wanted to share the image above. So many people have asked if we can support a second floor. This is to give an example of just what we are dealing with in terms of up rights. When we do a two story structure we suggest 2 foot on center. We are also very exited to be able to say that we now have standard 170mph wind load ratings on all structures 26 foot and wider.
We are also exited to see a lot of new interior designs from very simple and cost effective all the way to custom luxury living.

As promised here are the first of many sketched of or DIY steel homes. This is a basic layout we rendered that can be done for less than 50k. You provide the slab and the interior finish out and we provide a certified 140-180mph wind load steel frame that far exceeds the strength and durability of wooden construction.

We are exited to offer our first Barn house plans some time in the upcoming weeks! But for now here is a teaser...
Just a teaser for now but imagine 2400 square feet, vaulted ceilings, 900 square foot garage, 3 beds and two baths as a bare steel shell for under $50,000 installed. We will have a lot more info soon so stay tuned!

In addition to or numerous barndominiums we are also in the process of installing quite a few actual barns (as in for animals and farms!) These have ranged from small personal tack rooms with lean to loafing areas,
What ever the purpose or scope of the plan though we would love to help. As with everything we do pricing and code adjustment will depend upon your home state and county but if you have questions just ask [email protected] or (918) 258-0070.
