A Great Western residential building makes realizing your dream easy.

Many folks don’t realize how perfect a steel building from Great Western is for a metal building home, barndominium or a simple outbuilding with a mother-in-law apartment and space for the toys can be. Traditional thinking architects and builders may declare that a house must be built out of 2 x 4s and conventionalism, “it’s how it’s done,” you might hear. Well, we’re here to tell you that it’s not unusual at all to take a modern approach to building your home. It may even be a lot of fun!

If you are looking for the flexibility of completely unrestricted interior space, there’s really no other option than steel. Our clear span design means your home can have open, vaulted, even cavernous square footage that can be combined with the tighter build out of bedrooms and bathrooms – you can choose the costly services of an architect or you can choose to be the master of your domain. The design decisions are yours. That’s the advantage of working with the Great Western and you’ll find that our staff will be just passionate as you when it comes to your vision.

We can engineer clear spans, you can customize structural elements to your taste. You have a budget, you have an idea. Vaulted ceilings? No problem. All glass roll-up doors for summertime access between your living room and deck? We have you covered. Windows? Cupolas? Skylights? We know you don’t want to live in a boxy warehouse. Finishes like wainscot, masonry walls, wood paneling, or tile for the roof are no problem. The ease of erection is only one reason you choose a steel building. Cost is another. But… you want a building that gives you a feeling of accomplishment and makes your neighbors and guests say “WOW!”.

This is why you should choose Great Western.
