Metal Building Homes
Home Sweet Steel Home
Amid an increasingly volatile economic climate, homeowners continue to look for ways to build affordable new homes that will stay affordable, no matter what happens next in the market. To accomplish this, many people are turning to high-quality metal home-building kits, like those you can design and build with Worldwide Steel.
Recent construction data shows that there’s been a 15% increase in new metal building homes compared to traditional home construction. We’re not surprised. Metal building homes are a smart and cost-effective alternative to traditional home construction. They’re among the most durable buildings out there, and they have the added benefits of cost-effective square footage, low-maintenance living, customizable floor plans, and long-term energy efficiency.
Over the past five years, an increase in the use of metal buildings as homes has allowed Worldwide Steel Buildings to refine its simple, specialized building system. We make it easy for you to take charge of your building design, work through the creation of your metal building house, and move into your dream home … so much faster than you’d expect.
Our metal building home packages allow you – whether you’re a DIYer or you hire a contractor – to quickly and easily build a prefab home that goes up faster and costs less per square foot than traditional wood-based construction. Our customizable house kits allow for spacious floor plans and adaptable living spaces to support any budget and any lifestyle.
If you’re concerned a steel home might feel cold or impersonal, don’t worry. You won’t feel like you’re living in a pole barn or a quonset hut (… unless you want to). Thanks to the versatility of our interior finish options, the living quarters of a steel building can be customized to look and feel just like a traditional home.
The Cost Savings of a Steel Frame Home
Investing in a metal building home from Worldwide Steel Buildings is a cost-effective solution to traditional home construction. Depending on what high end finishing is done, a building kit from Worldwide Steel Buildings should range between $70 – $100 per square foot—that’s significantly cheaper than the national average, which often exceeds $100. Metal building homes built with Worldwide use only the highest quality steel building materials, which can withstand the harshest weather conditions, including your local area’s snow loads, so you can be confident in your building project’s lasting value.
Not only do Worldwide Steel building kits cost less in the short-term, they cost much less over the life of the home. Steel homes are less susceptible to many of the challenges of traditional homes (like wood rot, pest infestation, mold, mildew or fire), so they cost less (and take less effort) to maintain over the decades. If your metal house does need some attention outside the scope of normal use? Worldwide Steel Buildings offers a limited 50-year warranty on every one of its custom metal buildings.
