Steel Building Construction February 13, 2015 webadmin ⋅ Building Construction ⋅ An Oregon family builds a SteelMaster steel building in just a few days. This video shows the building construction step-by-step. The building will be used as a steel boat barn. Like 0 Thanks!

Wonder no more — we have a video that will guide you through every step. Chuck Andreas December 2, 2013 @ 8:12 am What keeps it from leaking you ask? Good question – the bolts have all have rubber washers and those work well. But a few years ago these building included a whole bunch of butyl caulking strips which you applied to every seam. Could be a nasty mess if it got on the bolt threads but it was very effective in sealing everything tightly. But interestingly enough now they say you don’t need it and if you want it you’ll have to pay through the nose for it. Hey instant additional profit! SteelMaster Buildings December 3, 2013 @ 6:38 pm Chuck, we do sell caulk for customers who want extra protection and peace of mind, but we’ve never included it in the price of our buildings. When properly constructed, our buildings are leak-proof and require no caulking at all! Ob Fuscated December 8, 2013 @ 5:20 pm I’ve had one since ~1994 (I forget exactly when I bought it) and didn’t seal it since I expected to unbolt it when if I moved. I did (air tools rule) and reassembled it at my new location. No leaks, even in SC rain. Water doesn’t fall upwards. I do anti-seize every bolt as a precaution in case I want to change something, and that also protects the threads a bit. If I were building in a heavy snow zone or a hurricane risk zone I’d frame the inside with additional steel (capturing the slick outer surface advantages of the design and the internal advantages of a beam structure such as being able to hang winches and equipment from the beams). If I wanted ultimate strength plus more space I’d use ISO containers for the vertical walls (they are gasketed and seal out rain/snow, Barring a massive avalanche with rock and ice no standard ISO container will crush under snow loads) with a rounded roof plus additional reinforcement. I tend to ignore sales pitches and do my own research, then do my own thing with gross overkill. Steelmaster do make ISO tie-in bases which are a slick way to use their product as a roof and endwall solution with ample interior room. ISOs are superior to mere walls as they provide (watertight) protected space, are instantly usable, and offer many options (check commericial ISO sites such as Sea Box for ideas) for low-height structures. ISOs are good to 150mph winds, and if those hit most other structures including steel buildings will be chaff. If your steel building width is also an ISO length or multiple thereof, you can drop ISO/ISOs across one end and tie in. If you are where severe snow or wind is a concern, I’d speak with a steel fabricator/welding shop who do industrial work and have the drawings in hand. Rounded steel buildings have inherently smoother and stronger SHELLS than conventional metal buildings, but conventionals have internal support. There is no reason you cannot choose to combine the two methods and build yourself a real beast! Further, you could erect the shell then frame it at leisure after adding power and lights. It would be easy enought to make plates which would pick up the bolt pattern in the steel building skin and weld or bolt those to an internal frame. Many folks who use such buildings will have the gear and skill to do this cheap or reasonably. ALTN8NRG December 22, 2013 @ 2:14 pm Thanks for posting this video! Admiral Nimitz January 7, 2014 @ 12:22 am what was the cost of the metal shed kit? daxwestphalen February 3, 2014 @ 11:21 pm How wide are base plates? To know how far in to put piping in slab. daxwestphalen February 3, 2014 @ 11:21 pm How wide are base plates? To know how far in to put piping in slab. Coffieman5150 August 25, 2014 @ 2:46 am Start to finish how long did the install take and how much did it cost? KmanJeeper October 2, 2014 @ 3:42 am What kind of a foundation/slab does this require in the North East US? dlaube November 18, 2014 @ 10:25 pm What size is the building featured in this video? EDIT: nevermind, I see this is a 20 x 30ft. OnlineBackupServices December 2, 2014 @ 2:21 pm this seems like a good idea on first glance but then you need to do so much insulation and reinforcement after you put it up that by the time you’re finished there’s no advantage to this structure apart from say fireproofing. johnsbibles December 26, 2014 @ 10:59 pm I put one up in 06 and it collapsed last winter 13 due to very small snow load. Company will not respond. I bought a “S” type from Crown steel or same co American Steel Span.
