Home Sweet Steel Home

In the face of an ever-changing economic landscape, homeowners are on the quest for new homes that promise affordability and stability against market fluctuations. The answer for many lies in high-quality metal building homes, an innovative solution offered by industry leaders like Worldwide Steel. These homes stand out for their notable savings in construction costs, making them a cost-effective choice.

The trend towards metal building homes is on the rise, with construction data revealing a 15% uptick in preference over traditional home construction. This shift is hardly surprising. Opting for a metal building home translates to a savvy investment in durability and cost-effectiveness, not to mention the advantages of maximized square footage, low maintenance requirements, versatile floor plans, and superior energy efficiency. This building type redefines home construction, merging practicality with modern living standards.

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 house kits allow for spacious floor plans and adaptable living spaces to support any budget and any lifestyle, with extensive customization options to meet specific needs.

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

Opting for a metal building home from Worldwide Steel Buildings introduces significant building cost savings compared 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. 

Additional Benefits

  • Steel homes offer reduced construction cost per sq. ft. versus traditional home construction.
  • Worldwide Steel Buildings can design your new home (or you can DIY the design), giving you a custom open-concept steel frame home that can be finished out however you like.
  • Steel exteriors (including steel roofing) have less maintenance cost and upkeep per square foot.
