Calculating the Size of Steel Barns

Country barn with enclosed lean-to's and gables on front and back of base structure.

When you are not sure what size structure you need when building steel barns, the first place you can start is by figuring out exactly what you will be storing in the barn. You should mark out the area needed to store all your equipment, animals and other items on the ground. This will give you the length and width of the structure you will need. The next step is to figure out what the largest or tallest item will go into the barn and use this to help you calculate the required height.

Additional Features Available in Custom Steel Barns

You can include specific features into the designs of steel barns. Some people want windows and side entry doors in addition to the large doors on the front. You may decide you do not want the large doors on the front, but instead want these on the back. You can also choose the colors for the roof, walls and trim which do not have to be the traditional red and white colors used most often for barns. You can build your own custom barn online at Carport, which offers free delivery and installation.
