    December 9, 2021You Can with a Pre-engineered DIY Metal Building At RHINO Steel Building Systems we are often asked, “Can I build my own metal building?”  The quick answer is, “Probably.” To the serious do-it-yourselfer, erecting their own DIY metal building seems like too good an opportunity to pass up.  After all, putting up the structure yourself saves money— and brings enormous satisfaction. Besides, it is just plain fun!  A RHINO metal building is like an adult-sized version of a kid’s erector set. In addition, prefabrication takes the guesswork out of metal building construction. The DIY steel building kit arrives with every piece already cut, punched, painted, and ready to assemble.  No welding is required.  Every piece is clearly marked to correspond to its location on the plans. So Can You Build Your Own Metal Building? So, how do you know if you are ready to build your own metal building? In general, the most successful do-it-yourself steel building owners: Have some prior construction experience Know dependable friends or family members willing to help Study the building manual thoroughly before starting construction Follow all the safety instructions in the manual carefully Work on small to medium-sized buildings Call RHINO immediately with any questions How Much Money Can I Save by Erecting DIY Steel Building Kits? Raising your own building saves big bucks over hiring a contractor to do the job.  An experienced metal building erection crew generally costs $3.50 to $4.00 per square foot, including trim and insulation installation. Estimate the costs of doing it yourself, in both time and money.  Find out what equipment you will need to buy and rent for the job— screw guns, hard hats, gloves, forklift, scissor lift, crane, etc.  Get quotes on the necessary equipment— and for an operator, if needed. Are You Up to the Do-It-Yourself Steel Building Challenge? So, are you still wondering, “Can I build my own metal building?”  Do you feel confident that you understand the process? Study the RHINO Installation Manual. Take careful note of the safety precautions.  RHINO also offers an Installation Video on DVD for $25 (which is rebated upon purchase of a RHINO building). If you are confident in your abilities and your understanding of the metal building erection process, go for it.  If you have any doubts, it may be wiser to hire an experienced contractor and erection crew. Ultimately, only you can decide if you’re ready to build your own steel building.

    November 30, 2021Commercial Steel Buildings for Wide Open Spaces Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material, so steel clear span buildings allow much wider, unobstructed interior areas for commercial building projects.  How Open Floor Space Enhances Commercial Clear Span Buildings This ability to span long distances without interior support columns is called “clear span.”  Clear span metal buildings support their own weight without the need to “prop up” the framing with load-bearing interior walls. RHINO prefabricated steel buildings are capable of spanning up to 150’ wide on a standard quote.  Open spans up to 300’ are possible with a custom order. Design Flexibility for Commercial Steel Buildings Not only does this clear span ability work well for commercial operations, which necessitate large open areas, it also permits greater interior design flexibility.  For example, even though an office building might not require open and unobstructed space, the clear span capabilities of steel framing make designing the floorplan much simpler.  Changing the floorplan later is also much easier with prefab commercial metal buildings.  You do not have to contend with support columns in your way, nor worry about moving a load-bearing wall that weakens the building’s integrity.  Clear span steel buildings work especially well for the commercial building owner who plans to rent space.  As the tenants change, the floor plan must adapt to their requirements.  Changing clear span structures to suit an incoming tenant’s desires is less complicated without support columns or load-bearing walls to consider. In addition, the sheer size of many commercial applications demands steel clear span buildings.  Large, unimpeded space works well for commercial buildings like: Auto dealerships Churches Fire stations Fitness centers Health care facilities Larger restaurants Libraries Manufacturing facilities Recreational buildings Retail centers Sports arenas Strip malls Theaters Warehouses Aircraft hangars definitely require the open space of pre-engineered clear span metal buildings. Agricultural buildings for large farming equipment, commercial indoor horse riding arenas, and sports arenas also rely on the strength of steel to provide unobstructed floor space.  With commercial steel buildings that do not require a clear span interior, it is generally more economical to choose a modular frame with minimal support columns. The RHINO Difference in Commercial Metal Buildings RHINO’s steel building specialists deliver expert guidance in choosing the framing style best for your commercial application and budget.  Call now to discuss your project in detail.  For a free estimate, call 940.383.9566.   (Updated 11-12-2021.  Originally published 4-19-2013.)

    November 10, 2021PREFABRICATED STEEL BUILDINGS: Chameleons of the Construction Market There is truly no building concept as versatile and economical as prefab metal buildings.  No matter what your structural needs, there is sure to be a steel-framed RHINO building package to accommodate your requirements perfectly.  From a small backyard workshop or RV garage, to a gigantic manufacturing plant or mega-warehouse, there is a RHINO metal building just right for every application. In fact, versatility is a major incentive for choosing a pre-engineered metal building. Prefab Metal Buildings Offer Versatile Designs Unless you have unlimited capital and a real desire for an out-of-the-box design, why spend money on a radical architectural design just to be “different”?  Let’s face it.  The most practical, cost-effective, flexible, and material-efficient buildings are fundamentally a rectangular box.  With today’s innovative computer-aided design programs for structural steel, basic prefab metal buildings are quick and easy to design.  You just order the building to fit your lot, your building requirements, and your budget.  We take care of all the rest. In fact, a RHINO steel building package can be designed and manufactured to fit your precise requirements in a surprisingly short time.  Customizing a structure to your exact specifications and local load requirements is also faster and much simpler today with structural steel software programs.  Prefab Steel Buildings Offer Versatile Sizes The metal frames of a RHINO rigid-frame steel building are like steel “ribs” supporting the framing skeleton of the structure.  Typically, these frames are spaced 20’ to 25’ apart.  (Custom designs with heavier steel frames spaced at 40’ are possible if required.)  It is just a matter of manufacturing as many column beams and rafter beams as necessary to stretch the length of your design and for the loads required.   Clear span prefabricated steel buildings— with an open-plan interior, which doesn’t require any interior support columns— can be up to 300’ or more in width.  With the addition of a single center column in each frame, buildings can be as wide as 480’.  To help you visualize that, consider that 480’ is exactly three times the width of an NFL football field!  Only steel is strong enough to handle the loads for such massive dimensions. What about length restraints?  Actually, there are none.  With a pre-engineered metal building system, your structure can be any length you require now— and it can be easily lengthened later.  Business owners need a structure which can adapt to their changing needs.  To enlarge your structure in the future you simply order more frames.  These additional frames can be added on either end of your building, to the length you desire.  RHINO is able to supply all the framing members, panels, and trim to match your existing RHINO structure exactly. RHINO buildings can also be up to 40’ in height as a standard design.  (Even taller designs are available on custom orders.) Our prefabricated steel buildings offer the ultimate in size versatility. Pre-engineered Metal Buildings Offer Versatile Floor Plans No other building system provides the floor plan flexibility of a pre-engineered steel building.  Because of the superior strength of steel, interior support columns are usually unnecessary.  Since the steel structure is self-supporting, you are free to have as many or as few interior walls as you want.  Equally important is the ability to remodel and alter the interior floor plan without regard for “load-bearing” walls.  This is especially important as businesses grow and its needs change.  Clear span metal buildings allow interiors to be remodeled easily and economically. RHINO Steel Buildings and their Versatile Uses You will find there is a prefabricated metal building solution for almost any application.  RHINO metal structures work well for: Agricultural / Farm / Ranch Buildings: Barns, hay lofts, stables, outbuildings, indoor or covered horse riding arenas, equipment storage, animal shelters, cattle barns, livestock facilities, dairies Aviation Buildings: Aircraft hangars, offices, maintenance buildings, terminals Automotive / Mechanic / Welding Buildings: Automotive, motorcycle, truck, and boat body and repair shops, vehicle showrooms, offices, auxiliary buildings, welding shops, transportation buildings Church Buildings: Sanctuaries, classrooms, meeting halls, offices, daycare centers Commercial Buildings: Strip malls, retail centers, boutiques, clothing stores, grocery stores, “big-box” stores, lumber centers, arcades, convenience stores, gas stations, retail and specialty stores Garages / RV / Boat Buildings: Personal storage space, multi-purpose garage and storage spaced combined, or vehicle, boat, and RV storage Industrial / Manufacturing Buildings: Manufacturing facilities, assembly plants, factories, mills, industrial storage, oil and gas buildings, lumber yards, recycling centers, fire stations Office Buildings: Medical, veterinary, accounting, real estate, or legal offices, office complexes, office rental space, corporate offices Recreational Buildings: Gymnasiums, recreational centers, indoor pools, athletic centers, sports complex, indoor rock climbing, bowling alleys, covered pavilions, picnic areas, community centers, country clubs Restaurants: Bistros, cafeterias, family dining, theme restaurants, fast food, upscale dining, catering businesses Storage Buildings: Self-storage, personal storage, vehicle and marine storage, mini-storage centers Suburban Hobby Buildings: Personal workshops, hobby shop, family recreation buildings, multi-purpose residential buildings Warehouses: Product warehouses, shipping centers, distribution centers, mega import warehouses RHINO steel buildings are so versatile they can be almost anything you need them to be.  If you can dream it, we can design it. Versatile Exteriors Prefabricated metal buildings are all about choices.  A modern metal building doesn’t look or perform like the old “tin” barns of your grandpa’s day.  Steel structures today can be architecturally pleasing, yet still economical and practical.  (You would be surprised how many buildings, stores, and restaurants you frequent are prefabricated metal buildings— you just can’t tell.) RHINO’s standard metal building kits include several choices of steel roof and wall sheathing in a wide array of colors.  The trim for the building can be ordered to match the walls and roof or in a pleasing contrasting color.  However, if your building application or location calls for a more traditional facade, it is easily accomplished.  RHINO steel buildings can be finished with brick, stucco, stone, tilt-up concrete, glass, decorative block, EIFS— or even rustic-looking wood, if required.  Your RHINO steel building comes with a choice of 1:12 to 4:12 roof pitch as a standard design.  (Higher pitches are available on custom orders.) Versatile Options and Accessories RHINO offers many options to further customize your metal building.  These options can improve both the aesthetics and the functionality of the structure. Eaves Overhangs (Canopies) Exterior Wall and Roof Panels Gutters and Downspouts Insulation Interior Liner Panels and Partitions Mezzanines Overhead Doors Skylights/Wall lights Ventilation Windows/Doors Try us just once, and you’ll be “Hooked on RHINO”  Not only do we believe we offer the finest product in the metal building industry, but we have the best-trained, most experienced people, too.  We pride ourselves in providing first class service before, during, and after the sale.  We are driven to exceed all your expectations.  You can depend on RHINO.  The Better Business Bureau gives RHINO an A+ rating. RHINO buildings are both durable and “green.”  Our environmentally friendly, commercial-grade framing contains an average of 89.5% recycled steel.  Our steel buildings also typically retain their beauty and value for decades longer than ordinary wood structures.  Every RHINO building comes with a letter of certification promising the building will meet or exceed all current design loads for the lifetime of the building.  That is why RHINO buildings are considered more of an investment than an expense. For durability, flexibility, and ease of construction, a prefabricated RHINO metal building is the ideal choice.  See exactly what the RHINO Difference means.  Call today to find out more about our practical, innovative, versatile prefab steel buildings.  You can reach RHINO at 940.383.9566.     (Updated 11-3-2021.  Originally published 2-27-2013.)   [...] Read more...
