Choosing a metal building requires a firm grasp on your lot dimensions, local building restrictions, the intended use for the structure, and your building budget. Whether for personal use or business application, many people find a 30’ x 50’ metal building exactly fits their requirements.
Perhaps 1,500 square feet may not sound like a lot of space— given that the median size of the 2,500 square foot or more of new homes today. Yet in the 1970s, 1,500 square feet was the average size of a home in the U.S. Today that same space is often used as a backyard storage building for our larger, yet over-stuffed homes.
Where space permits, people sometimes build a 30’ x 50’ metal building to use as a combination garage and workshop. Others have multiple vehicles to store— like lawn tractors, boats, RVs, jet skis, motorcycles, and classic cars. Still other individuals choose to split a 30’ x 50’ metal building into sections, using part for storage, part for boat or car, and part as a private office away from the noise and distractions of a busy family.
RHINO buildings are flexible enough to serve whatever purpose you need.
Small “corner stores” may find a 30’ x 50’ metal building a suitable structure. Bakeries and donut shops, for example, work well in smaller structures.
Many “mom-and-pop” operations successfully run from a smaller structure, with a client office in the front and a manufacturing operation in the back. For example, a booming T-Shirt business with a tastefully decorated front office for clients and a busy screen-printing workroom in the back. This type operation would suits print shops, specialty advertising businesses, party planning services, dry cleaners, mail package services, pharmacies, and the like.
The typical independent bookstore in the U.S., for example, is about 1,500 square feet.
Really, there is no limit to the uses for metal buildings in commercial applications.
A higher eave height like 20’ allows installation of a mezzanine or second floor to increase floor space without increasing the lot size.
