A 30’ x 50’ and a 40’ x 40’ metal building differ vary little in actual square footage, but the best end uses for each may be radically different.
If your property allows space for the wider 40’x 40’ metal building, you may find the square-shaped building has real advantages over the rectangular 30’ x 50’.
For example, the wider 40’ structure allows for a roomy 3-car garage with additional storage in the back. It could even be used as a six-car garage, since the 40’ length is adequate for parking vehicles two deep at three garage doors.
With increased height, a 40’ x 40’ building might house an RV and two cars across the endwall. You could even have three car-sized overhead doors across the endwall, and still have room to park a motor home across the back of the building in from of the cars with access from an RV-sized door in the sidewall. (Either layout should permit space for storage, a home office, or a guest room above the car area— with sufficient height.)
There are so many possibilities to consider.
Just as raising the eave height allows for RV storage in a 40’ x 40’ personal metal building, a taller structure creates an excellent mechanics shop. With three roomy bays in the endwall and enough depth to park cars two deep, a shop could be working on six cars at any one time.
A cozy tire store, with a sales counter and small waiting area, two service bays, and room for tire storage, would fit snugly in a 40’ x 40’ metal building.
Larger day spas and hair salons could sport six to eight client workstations in a structure of this size.
The agricultural uses for a 40’ x 40’ building abound. This square structure works well as a metal barn, hay shed, storage structure, or as a shelter for cattle or horses.

In the world of recycling, steel rules. No other material is recycled as much as steel.
Because steel separates easily from the solid waste stream with huge magnets, it is economical to recycle. Unlike all other materials, steel can be recycled over and over and over again without changing any of its strength. RHINO’s metal framing contains an average of 89.5% recycled steel.
