One of the greatest benefits of DIY metal buildings is that they eliminate many of the problematic characteristics of traditional construction. By their very nature, they are designed to allow the end user to be able to construct them easily and efficiently. Just how easy are they to construct? The following 5 points should give you a good idea.
- No contractor necessary
Unlike traditional structures, DIY metal buildings do not require heavy construction: no measuring or cutting, no framing or carpentry skills, and virtually no power tools. Really, all that’s needed is some light assembly and you can get your structure up! This effectively eliminates the need to hire a contractor to build the structure for you, saving you both money and time.
- Raised arches
With DIY metal building kits, the arches of the building are raised into position, rather than lifted. Each arch only requires about 50lbs of force in order to be raised into place. You’ll find that you won’t be needing a crane or any other heavy machinery to get the structure up.
- Easily mounted to homemade foundation
The first requirement to your build is pouring a concrete perimeter footing onto a level site (for which drawings are provided). Once the foundation is poured, your DIY metal building can be seamlessly mounted.
- One size of bolt
DIY metal building kits are designed to require only one size bolt. And, tons of spare bolts are included in case some are misplaced. This means there is no mix-and-matching; every bolt can fit any pre-drilled hole on the structure, for unbelievably easy assemblage.
- Tried and tested four step process
DIY metal buildings can be constructed using a simple yet effective four step process: pour the footings, assemble the arches, raise the arches, and add the finishes. With moderate physical effort and some light assemblage and bolt fastening, the metal building can be built in a weekend. And, each DIY metal building comes with a set of easy-to-follow instructions that you can refer to (should you need to), as well as a set of pre-drilled and pre-cut steel panels that bolt together quickly.
