Why Metal Shops with Living Quarters are a Great Choice
Metal buildings are not just a great style choice, but they are an intelligent choice when you want to combine your home with your work. There are many benefits to making this decision, including:
They are low maintenance
metal buildings are built to last and require little maintenance to keep them in good shape. Plus, they are able to resist fire, infestations, mold, and extreme weather, so you'll probably never have to deal with the fallout of any of these issues.
They keep you safe
not only is steel strong, but it is safe too, and when you look at the way a steel building is installed, you will be more confident than ever that your family can enjoy living safely and securely.
They are cost-effective
steel buildings are both cheaper to build than wooden buildings and have fewer and cheaper ongoing maintenance needs, helping you to keep your money for better things.
They are simple to install
each metal building kit from American Metal Buildings comes pre-fabricated and ready to install, so all you need to do is get a group of friends together and enjoy building your new property.
They are made to last
not only can these metal buildings cope with heavy rainfall, snow loads, and high winds, but they are strong and durable and made to last.
They are recyclable
when your building is no longer needed, you can choose to recycle it completely so that your environmental impact is kept to a minimum. Plus, all new steel buildings are made with a combination of both new and recycled steel!
They can be customized
as each property is prepared when ordered, you can work with our design team to customize every inch to suit your needs.
You can add to them
if you ever need to add more space, you can easily expand the building and attach it to the current property to make it bigger.
You can enjoy lower bills
steel is great at keeping you warm when it’s cold outside and cool when it is hot. This means that you will spend less on artificial heating and cooling, putting some extra cashback into your account.
Create the Interior
The great thing about metal buildings with living quarters is that you can create the interior you’ve always dreamed of. Some of the most popular choices include rooms such as:
A man cave
providing the men in your life with somewhere to relax and unwind.
A breakfast terrace
giving you the pleasure of enjoying your morning coffee in comfort, outside.
An outdoor living room
if you love entertaining, then impress your guests with a perfectly styled outdoor living room.
if you want your property to blend in with nature, then choosing natural materials and colors to decorate will help you achieve your goal.
A garage-style entrance
add large garage doors to your property to make access easier for both your living and working space.
A spacious balcony
if you want to enjoy some beautiful views, then adding a balcony will give you the space you need to soak up the great outdoors in comfort.
A pool room
fancy hosting some epic pool parties? Why not install a pool on the ground floor so that your guests can take a dip.
A modern look
if you want your metal building with living quarters to look modern, then work to create the right floor plan with the right external finishes to achieve your unique property.

Things You Need to Consider Before Buying
As with any big purchase, there are things that you should consider before parting with your money. Here are a few of the most important considerations:
Getting a building permit
Regulations around permits and zoning requirements is different in each US county. Before you commit to buying a metal building, it is important that you find out what the requirements are in your area first. You can get this information from your local zoning office.
Finding an appropriate location
when you are looking to install a shop, and living quarters on the same piece of land, you will need to check whether the location you have in mind will pass local regulations. Check with your zoning office before proceeding.
How much everything will cost
in addition to your new building, you will also need to think about how much it will cost for the site clearing, the laying of foundations, and more before you decide to proceed.
How to prepare the site
clearing and leveling the site is an essential step, followed by getting your foundation pad into place. Not leveling or properly clearing the site will cause serious problems when you are putting the building together.
How you will pay
financing a metal building can be expensive, but you can think about using a rent-to-own facility to get the finance you need without paying it all upfront.
How are Metal Shops with Living Quarters Designed?
Steel shop buildings come in all shapes and sizes to suit the space you have available and your own personal needs. Some of the key steps you will need to consider include:
- Designing a place that works for you – with so many different styles of the building available, you can create a look that suits your personal tastes and your business goals.
- Thinking about floor plans – from the floor plan of your living space to the floor plan of the shop, you can customize your metal building to fit your exact specifications.
- Build across, not up – if your land is wide, then you may also want to consider building across to fill the site rather than building a living space above the shop. Think about the best solution for the land you have available.
