The move toward metal buildings over more traditionally constructed buildings is apparent in both residential and commercial settings. The framing possibilities for metal buildings are wide, as you can put them up to resemble conventional construction, or you can go with a wide-open floor plan.
Metal buildings use pole construction methods that enable the interior walls to be non-load bearing. The poles support the weight of the metal building, making it possible to position interior walls pretty much where you want them to go. You can also have larger open spaces on the inside without fear of the building losing stability or falling down completely. The framing costs of your metal building will also be less than normal because the walls are non-load bearing.
For residential structures like the standard storage building or garage, utilizing the wide-open, barn-like interior works best for most people.
A completely open space gives you the option to move around machinery or other large items without having to worry about walls being in the way. On many styles of metal building, it's also possible to expand the length of the structure if you find that you're running out of space. Sometimes, your hobbies or workload will just start to outgrow the metal building and you'll need more space. The Steel Building Co. afford you the option of removing one of the end walls and extending the roof to increase the length of the building. As long as you have enough space, the process is much simpler than putting up a whole new structure. To get a new building up requires excavation and plans and new materials, basically starting the whole process over again. You could just get rid of some your things to make room, but that is a tough consolation for most.
If you choose to use metal building materials for your home or a cottage, you can basically use any type of layout you'd find in a traditional house. If you want larger rooms, smaller rooms or a combination of the two, the integrity of the steel makes it possible. The same can be said for commercial office buildings, factories or retail spaces that utilize metal buildings.
An open floor plan is definitely possible, but you may want to customize the inside to suit the needs of the business or businesses. In a larger factory type of setting you will need to separate the offices from the machinery, and in a typical office building you'll want create many offices under the same roof. The nature of the construction and the walls will let you get a little more creative than you normally could.
It's possible to change the building to meet some of your needs, rather than just making due with whatever is there. With no load-bearing walls, your options are varied, regardless of which type or size of metal building you're using. This versatility can become a selling feature for prospective tenants too, as some of the interior may be switched around to suit their needs.
