Barns, Barndominiums & More
In addition to manufacturing and supplying steel barns intended for private and commercial use, Sunward Steel also fabricates “barndominiums,” which merge residential living quarters with other types of usable space. Ideal for housing animals, storing animal feed or farm equipment, or serving any number of other purposes, pre-engineered metal barns are generally cheaper and easier to erect than wooden alternatives, but they offer the same degree of architectural appeal.
This particular metal barn effectively merges style with functionality, resulting in a safe, reliable multiuse space for the owner to enjoy.
