Summer is the perfect season for home and business improvement projects. If you’re looking to add value or utility to your home, farm, or business, consider installing a metal building. Not sure how to get the most out of your metal structure? Here’s all the different applications for metal buildings to give you inspiration.

Detached Garage

Whether your house lacks a proper garage or you’re looking for extra storage space, a metal building makes the perfect detached garage. You can add as many doors as you like, enabling storage for multiple cars, RVs, boats, motorcycles, and tractors. With Pro Metal Building’s customization tool, you can even add room for a workshop right where you park your vehicle.

Carports and Shelters

Building a metal carport is an excellent idea if you need to store an RV or boat during winter. Other kinds of covers might help keep away moisture and dust, but they can’t do anything to prevent damage from falling trees or patio furniture moving around during a storm. When you’re not using your carport for vehicle storage, use it as a workshop, covered patio, or outdoor sports bar and grill.

Barns and Stables

When most people think of a barn, they probably picture a bright red wooden structure with classic white detail beams. However, you can get the same look from a metal barn, which will last you much longer and require a fraction of the maintenance needed for a wooden barn. Metal buildings can be any size, so they also work for small, stand-alone animal shelters.

Warehouses and Storage

No matter what you need to store, you can use Pro Metal Building’s online tool to design a custom metal building for any type of storage need. Protect your farm equipment, grill, fishing gear, shipping paraphernalia, and just about anything else inside your own private warehouse or storage shed.

Get Creative

One of the best things about customizable metal buildings is that there’s so many different applications. Properly insulated, a metal building makes a great backyard tailgating zone for when it’s too cold to sit outside and watch a game. If you own land, a metal building even makes a cheap alternative to a hunting cabin. If you can think of it, you can make it happen with a metal structure.
