Attractive, Long-Lasting & Low-Maintenance Metal Farm Buildings
Often used as barns, riding arenas, stables and other types of agricultural buildings, pre-engineered steel farm buildings offer the beauty and versatility of traditional wood construction, but with the strength and durability only steel can deliver.

Delivered to the property address in partially assembled pieces, the building, when constructed, stands 50’x80’x20’ and features a clear span that creates an unobstructed, column-free interior.
