Making Room for a Home Office

When thinking about putting an office space in your home, it often comes down to whether or not you have the extra space to accommodate it. While there are always ways you can renovate and rearrange inside your home to make room for a workspace, there are also times that you just won’t have the space to spare no matter how to organize it. In these cases where you still want a workspace that is on your residential property, building a space separate from your home is the next best thing and there are plenty of reasons why our prefab steel buildings make for the perfect office space. It will be important to have a clear idea of how you’re going to use the space so you can create an office that works best for you. Having an idea of how much space you’re going to need will be based on knowing how many people plan on working out of it, the kinds of tools and equipment you’ll need to store or make space for and so on. No two offices are created equal and where a desk, bookshelf and chair might work for some – for others that isn’t nearly enough on-hand resources to complete the work they need to. Here are just a few reasons why prefab steel makes for excellent office spaces.

Contrary to popular belief, there is more than one way for the inside and outside of a steel building to look and it’s more than possible to have a space that perfectly fits your needs and aesthetic wants. The great thing about steel buildings is their trussless design that allows you to have a truly open concept space design since the usual obstructive support columns won’t be there to dictate what is able to go where. From sizing to deciding where windows, doors and wall partitions will go, steel buildings give you the freedom to have the exact kind of office space you’re looking for.

For the most part, office spaces can be expensive to run – even the ones that are on your own residential property. Depending on the size, the distance from your home and how often it’s being used, you are essentially paying for utilities and occasional maintenance for a whole separate structure, which can add up quicker than you think. The great thing about steel buildings is that they are naturally insulated and with the addition of extra insulation, you can save plenty of money when it comes to utilities.

Quick Construction
Steel buildings are perfect for nearly any use due in large part to the fact that they can be erected in short periods of time in comparison to other forms of construction. If you’ve decided that you need a home office to work out of, chances are you’ve already outgrown whatever workspace inside your home you’ve been working from and the sooner your new office space can be ready, the better. With prefab steel buildings, a project that might have normally taken weeks or even months to do can be up & running in a matter of days.

How to Handle Rising Steel Prices

With the popularity of steel buildings increasing steadily, it’s also starting to Become more and more noticeable that the price of steel is rising as well. Steel production from particular countries have historically been much cheaper than others, while some countries have lowered their production of steel for their own reasons. China specifically, a large producer of steel, has seen a dip in tons of steel produced and will likely continue well into 2020. Here are just a few reasons why steel prices might rise in 2017 and what you can do to still take full advantage of prefab steel buildings in the meantime.

Lower Supply

Due to this lowering supply, demand will rise dramatically as there’s less steel being produced worldwide. More and more structures and buildings are turning to steel – prefab and otherwise – in order to complete projects that will last for years to come. Thanks to this newfound interest in prefab steel, more and more residential and commercial projects are set to include the material than ever before. Like any material that is being produced less and less, there’s


Steel might be the most recycled material on earth so as we become more and more environmentally conscious, this will be seen as a premium for all materials that are able to do this. Structures being built now are going to focus even more on their ability to be “green buildings” so it’s imperative to brace yourself for the rising prices this will bring as well.

What Can You Do?

Plan Ahead

Like any construction project, it will be important for you to plan ahead well in advance so that you won’t encounter any surprises and can also take advantage of the prices as they currently are. We strive to provide the best possible prices on our steel buildings, so it’s important to use extensive planning to your advantage when looking to erect a structure.

Budget Correctly

With planning comes budgeting, and with the prices on the raw material set to rise it’s important to map out what your total costs will look like while you still have the opportunity to benefit from our affordable costs. Currently, you can expect to save about 30% off the cost of your structure when compared to buying the raw materials to create a building of the same size. Budgeting well will prevent any surprise costs near the end of your construction process. Making last minute changes can be costly and use much more of your resources than you intended. I

Act Now

Currently, our prefab steel buildings are still reasonable priced so that our customers are satisfied with everything from the engineering to the efficiency of the construction process, but with the prices of the raw material set to rise, there’s no telling when steel building providers will have to follow suit. Start off the year the right way by planning your steel structure needs early so you can make your purchase and have them up before potentially drastic changes shift the steel industry in the coming years.

Wine Not?

Steel buildings have the type of versatility that makes them useful in all kinds of uses and industries, and the wine industry is not different. While historic wineries exist all over the world, there still needs to be newer structures or expansions done to accommodate a business that’s constantly growing and booming. There are plenty of reasons why steel buildings are the perfect option for that, and why it’s important to consider all of the best possible options to use.


In terms of safety and security, steel is the perfect option because it’s a material that’s extremely durable. Commercial steel buildings are resistant to not only many different kinds of weather conditions but also to fire, to pests like termites and to corrosion once it’s been treated with the right protective paints and coatings. With structures made of wood, for example, you would have to worry about different kinds of pests burrowing in and potentially damaging your equipment or the product itself, but with steel buildings that’s something you don’t have to worry about. Steel’s natural insulation and additional insulation is also important for maintaining a regulated temperature and this is imperative because many of the production processes require a specific temperature or other specifications of conditions that have to remain the same in order to create output that always tastes, looks and feels the same each time.

Low Maintenance

One of the best things about steel structures is how low maintenance they are. That isn’t to say they won’t ever need any repairs during the life of your building, but you will be able to go much longer amounts of time without needing much in the way of repairs and fixes due to the durable nature of steel. This is excellent in the wine industry because so much of the daily production will focus on the wine itself, and it’s important that the building remain in constant good shape in order to continue. Any stops for major overhauls or repairs can have a detrimental impact on production and output that might be difficult to make up later on. Annual inspections are a must, but chances are there won’t be much to fix beyond regular wear and tear.


Generally speaking, you’ll save about 30% when choosing to go with a steel structure when compared to buying the raw materials like wooden beams or bricks for a structure that will end up being the same size. Depending on how large you’re looking to building your structure, you can wind up saving thousands of dollars in the end. Not only that, but the construction costs will also be greatly reduced since you won’t require skilled workers to get the job done. The general contractors that you might need will take much less time to put the structure up, reducing your costs further. In addition, the cost to heat or cool your space will be much lower than in other structures thanks to steel’s natural insulation and energy efficiency. This allows more money to go back into the production, bottling and transport of wine products.
