Need Space? You Need the General!

While modular homes and housing developments may be great options for some homebuyers, metal building homes are growing in popularity across the nation due to many benefits including cost savings, durability and the ability to custom design steel houses without a costly architect. For younger homeowners seeking to save money while still making a longstanding investment in their property, metal houses may be the most logical option.

Metal building homes are the future of affordable, reliable, and customizable residencies. Whether you’re buying your first home, investing in a vacation property, or looking for a flexible home for your growing family, metal homes can offer you everything you need for your next space. Consumers have searched for alternatives to traditional construction over the past several decades, and homebuyers are no exception. Steel has evolved into a desirable residential space not only due to affordability, but also due to ease of expansion and lower insurance costs.

Our Home Designs

Steel building homes can be fully customized, loaded, and designed according to the preferences of the homeowner. With traditional wood housing developments and modular homes, you have less room for personalization, as the design is mostly up to the developer or architect. Our steel house packages, on the other hand, allow you to control the dimensions, placement, and features of each room in your home and the best part is, metal homes can be designed to look like a traditional home. For homeowners that would like ownership of the layout and design, pre-engineered steel is a perfect construction method. Rooms can be situated to fit your ideal layout, giving you total control and providing a truly immersive home to suit your family.

Customizing the Layout

As you can see from our home designs, you can start with any ordinary metal building footprint, even a size found on our steel building specials page and place your rooms exactly how you like.
