A steel building kit from General Steel is an ideal fit for a workshop, and that’s why the 30×40 kit is one of our most popular buildings. The basic building package includes the primary and secondary framing, but it’s the components that truly make your workshop your own. Framed openings allow the builder to choose where sectional doors, roll-up doors, and windows will be located on the structure. Liner panels can be added to protect insulation, ridge vents installed for ventilation, and exterior color schemes added for aesthetic value.
There are three factors that affect the price of your building. The first is design, which includes all of the custom features that you choose. The second is the price of steel, which can fluctuate daily based on the market. The third is economies of scale, which affects the price per square foot.
A prefabricated building provides the best value due to its design versatility, strength, durability, and efficient construction. A workshop requires a high degree of customization, and a preengineered building kit from General Steel provides the functional and aesthetic components that make your workshop your own.
Many people use these two terms to refer to the same building, but we distinguish the two building types in this way: a garage houses vehicles and a workshop provides space for personal projects. Our post, “Do You Need a Garage or Workshop?”, offers a more detailed analysis and options for a combination space.
