Custom Design Your Home or Choose an Existing Plan

Working with General Steel is a collaborative process that ensures that your final product reflects your specific needs. The process starts with a two-way conversation between you and our experienced team. We want to know exactly how you’ll be using your home, how it fits within your property, and your ideas for interior and exterior design, among other factors. We then research the location of your home to ensure that the structure is equipped to withstand the wind and snow loads of your area as well as any insulation requirements.

Once we get an idea of what building kit best suits your project, we work with you to add customization options, including a wide variety of doors, windows, and exterior color schemes. The ease of steel construction allows us to modify layouts and add further customizations without breaking your budget. From design to construction, we provide the materials and expertise to transform a building kit into a beautiful home.

Fast Construction and Material Cost Savings

One of the primary advantages in selecting steel for your recreation home is the quick and easy construction. Steel building kits come ready to be erected with simple, DIY-friendly bolt-together construction. This not only allows you to save up to 50% on time and material costs over traditional building materials like wood and stone, it also allows you to avoid costly consultation with an architect.

Steel is the world’s premier building material because of its strength and durability. General Steel buildings are produced using 100-percent, American-made steel that adheres to the industry’s most stringent technical specifications. When your building a home that will shelter your family, safety should be at the forefront of any conversation.
