DIY Customer Journey with the Seigel Family in LeClaire, Iowa

“The price of the all-steel building was cost effective compared to conventional stick built and pole shed designs, given current pandemic supply concerns. While the delivery date was 3 months out, the materials were delivered on the date agreed. The product arrived well identified, organized, banded, and easy to unload.”


Delivery Preparation

Step 1

Survey of the ground level for excavation purposes to ‘grade’ the area around the building site and ensure the building pad will be precisely the same grade from corner to corner.

Step 2

The concrete building pad should be poured at least 4 to 6 inches deep, depending on the level of support needed inside the structure. Heavy equipment storage will need more concrete depth to ensure the concrete will not crack under the extra weight.

Building Structure

Step 3

Setting your steel columns. A simple scaffold that can be rented from your local hardware store and utilized when your columns are 14 ft high.

“The drawings were very complete, providing all the necessary details for local building codes. The Building Inspector was very impressed with both the drawings and finished product.”


Next Steps

Setting your steel trusses, roof purlins on top and wall girts along the sides. Again, a simple scaffold can be used.

Secondary Framing

It really is as simple as bolting Part A to Part B. You can place the wall girts before or after the trusses are in place. Either way, our building kits are easily assembled.

“The construction documentation was very clear. It provided a step-by-step process with several pictures allowing our family and friends to easily assemble the building. Anytime we needed additional detail, an email or call to Mr. Turner quickly resolved the concern.”


Metal Sidewalls

Your metal sidewalls can be hung before or after you place the metal roofing on the trusses. Insulation can also be placed underneath the metal siding during the process, or at a later time. The Seigel’s chose to install a vapor barrier, which resists diffusion of moisture through the wall and prevents air flow through the ‘envelope’ of the building.
