Metal Barns are Great for Agriculture Storage and Animal Shelter
Metal barns are durable & robust farm buildings that can be used to store your farm produce and protect your livestock on the farm. These pre-engineered barns can be custom-made to shelter different farm animals like cattle, hogs, horses, etc. You can even plan a dedicated storage space for hay, crops, animal fodder, and equipment. These custom barns not only store agricultural products and shelter animals but can also be used to protect farm equipment, vehicles, and large tractors from outdoor elements. The structural strength and fire resistance nature of steel makes them an excellent option for animal sheltering and storage space compared to other alternatives. In a nutshell, metal barns are versatile structures and the perfect solution for all your agricultural storage needs. Call us today at (336) 673-3065 to get a free quote on your dream barn building.
CUSTOMIZING YOUR BARN
By choosing Boss Buildings, you have the freedom to design your metal barn exactly the way you want! You’re in the driver’s seat, and it’s up to you to select everything from custom barn dimensions, to roof type, to the gauge of your steel, trim, colors, doors, windows, certification requirements, and more!
How big does your metal barn need to be? You can choose a smaller steel barn, or you can go with a width of all the way up to 70’ for the center building. You can also choose pretty much any length you like. Need your custom metal barn to be taller so you can accommodate a tractor or other big items? We can provide what you need! The typical lean-to’s are 10’ to 12’ to wide, but we can design engineered lean-to’s up to 24’ wide.
14-gauge is the common standard for steel barn framing, but you also have the option of choosing thicker 12-gauge steel for an even more durable steel barn. You choose the gauge of your barn’s metal roofing and siding, too, which by default is 29-GA. Remember that certification requirements beyond 65 PSF may sometimes need building with 12 GA tubing mandatorily.
Does your location require certification of metal structures like barns? We can design your metal barn to meet any necessary wind or snow loads. And even if certification isn’t required, you can still choose a certified metal building for greater peace of mind.
Gables, Trim, and Anchors
Add gables to the front or back for greater reinforcement and a finished look. Protective J-trim can be used to cover the edges of your panels. Plus, we have anchors to secure your metal barn to almost any type of installation surface, even level ground!
You can go with a more traditional “barn red,” or you can go your own way and choose from among our other attractive color options for your roof panels, side paneling, and trim. You can even choose a two-tone wainscot look, if you like.
