Why Choose a Metal Garage Kit?

The most prominent reason to choose a metal building or a traditional wooden structure is the strength advantages of a steel structure. Steel is an advantageous building material because it is exceptionally strong and affordable. A metal building requires little to no maintenance and has superior longevity for generations. In addition, metal buildings are typically cheaper to insure because of their superior durability and fire resistance. In addition, our designers are familiar with International Building Code (IBC) requirements. We ensure that your building meets all standards for snow loading, wind resistance, and seismic activity specific to your location. You can rest assured that Great Western takes care to ensure your building will be safe, strong, and aligned with your needs.

Great Western metal buildings allow you to truly make your new garage or workshop exactly that: yours. With customization ranging from external colors to door preferences, window placement, and ventilation, our team can design a building that perfectly embodies your use case. Best of all, these choices are integrated at the design level. So, your perfect building comes with all your details and preferences pre-fabricated and ready to erect, making your dream garage or shop a reality on a reasonable timeline.

Metal buildings aren’t just economical when it comes to the initial purchase price, either. Modern insulation solutions offer impeccable energy efficiency. So, if your dream garage or shop features air conditioning and heating, a steel building from Great Western can keep the energy costs reasonable. In addition, a metal building’s materials are ultimately recyclable. So, if you’re looking out for the future and hope to build green, a metal building makes a great choice.

How Much Does a Metal Garage Cost?

The cost of a metal garage or shop building from Great Western depends on the size and specifications of the project. Buildings in locations that require additional strength for snow, wind, or seismic activity use more material and, as a result, cost more. Your location also has a drastic effect on the cost of delivery. Ultimately, the best way to get a definitive and accurate estimate is to contact us directly with your building size and location. If you’re unsure of your necessary building size, our team members can help assess your intended use  and make a recommendation. 

Generally, a building from Great Western starts around $15 to $20 per square foot. If you’d like to begin the estimate process, our 3D building designer offers a great way to visualize your future garage or shop and customize it to your tastes. You can choose your door and window placement, colors, roof style, and other key elements with our designer and submit it for a quote. Alternatively, you can contact our team directly if you’re unsure where to start. We’ll work with you to develop your perfect building design and deliver an accurate estimate.

Frequently Asked Questions

We aren’t looking to climate-control our building but will heat/cool it occasionally while using it. Should we insulate the building?

We advise that all of our customers insulate their buildings regardless of their use of permanent climate control systems. Insulating your building prevents condensation from forming on the interior panels and secondary framing. Without it, you could face premature corrosion due to moisture accumulation. Great Western can supply simple-to-install and cost-effective insulation solutions for your building that prevent this and increase your resale value. In addition, if you plan to occasionally heat or cool your garage or shop while it’s in use, insulation will increase the amount of time your temporary climate control solution is effective. 

Can a Great Western steel building support an engine hoist or a lifting device from the rafters?

Absolutely! Once our team knows where in the roof structure you’d like your lifting device and how much weight you plan to lift, they can engineer your building to ensure it’s up to the task. A monorail crane system is a phenomenal solution that adds mobility and flexibility to its use, and our designers have experience integrating them into our building designs. If you need any other unique integration, our team will do our best to accommodate your needs within your building design to make the process quick and easy.

Access to my job site is limited, and cannot accommodate a full-size semi and trailer. How do I get my building delivered?

All Great Western buildings are delivered on tractor-trailers. If your property cannot support delivery via an 80-foot semi-truck assembly, please alert our shipping and logistics team ahead of time. We’ll work with you to designate a delivery site to offload your building. Transportation of the building from the delivery site to the job site will be the buyer’s responsibility unless otherwise agreed upon. We are happy to assist with alternative delivery methods and want to make the delivery process as seamless as possible for our customers.

We would like a storage loft or living quarters in the steel building. Can Great Western help?

Absolutely! The Great Western team has monumental experience designing buildings with integrated residential spaces and storage solutions. Simply provide us with your intended use of the space, and we’ll provide several solution options. Our designers can incorporate two or four-foot spacing for your building’s girts and purlins and even integrate hat channels on 16-inch centers for interior wall structures. Many customers build these additional quarters with standard timber construction. However, our designers can also incorporate all-steel mezzanine systems or allocate space for a hybrid wood/steel solution.


Great Western’s custom design tool allows you to design, customize, and price the best metal building for your needs. You can also share and print your designs or save them and modify them later.
