Post Frame Houses

Why have residential metal buildings become more popular in the past few years?


  1. Design Improvements – Residential steel houses now look and feel like modern homes and less like a metal pole barn home.
  2. Affordable & “Green” – One of the biggest advantages of a steel home is affordability.  Costs of post frame houses are often substantially less… even when taking into account decorative elements like doors, windows and overhangs.  Why are costs lower?  Less building materials since supports are often 12’ to 10’ apart.  And because post frame construction uses less materials – that means less impact on the environment.
  3. Durability and Low Maintenance – Residential steel buildings require little upkeep in comparison to conventional construction – no exposed wood to refinish, shingles to replace, no siding to paint…
  4. More Space – Post frame constructions use of trusses and laminated beams allows for some open-design capabilities that would be otherwise impossible with conventional construction.
