Economical, Long-Lasting Metal Farm Buildings 

A favorite among farmers, ranchers, and others with agricultural interests, pre-engineered metal buildings provide affordable, easy-to-erect alternatives to wooden structures that won’t fade, warp or crack over time. Ideal for housing livestock, horses, or other farm animals, steel buildings can also undergo configuration to serve as grain, feed, or tack storage buildings, or to house farming machinery and equipment, among other common uses.

This particular metal farm building is impressively well-maintained despite many years of agricultural use, serving as a prime example of just how well steel farm buildings endure over time. Part of Vermont’s Washington County, the town of Calais has a number of smaller unincorporated communities within its boundaries. These areas include Adamant, East Calais, North Calais, Kent’s Corner, Maple Corner, and Pekin.
