Receding an Exterior Wall Changes the Look of Metal Buildings In Part 4 of our series on “Steel Buildings: Think Outside the Box” we covered adding pop-out sections of framing.

Roofline Extensions Add Flair to Pre-engineered Metal Buildings In part one of this series on steel buildings, we discussed changing the roof pitch and gable rooflines versus hip rooflines. You can also “dress up” metal buildings by adding eave overhangs or canopies. In standard pre-engineered steel buildings, the roofline ends flush with sidewalls.
