Frequently Asked Questions About DIY Steel Building Kits
Do-it-yourself (DIY) steel building kits make it extremely easy for you to set up the facilities you need on your property without having to hire out an entire building crew. These kits come with everything you need to get your steel building set up and ready to use.
Here are answers to just a few of the questions we most commonly receive at Adams Truss, Inc. about our DIY steel building kits in Arkansas.
You say your DIY steel building kits are easy, but just how easy are they?
They’re so easy to use and set up that you do not need to have any previous experience with framing or carpentry. Because all of our buildings come in pre-made kits, you do not have to do any measuring or cutting of any materials. The only power tool you might need is a cordless drill. Therefore, if you’re able to tighten bolts, you’re able to erect one of our steel buildings from these kits. Building has never been easier!
Aren’t the roofs difficult to erect?
Most of the time, roofs for steel building kits come in arches. Each arch typically only requires somewhere around 50 pounds of force to lift off the ground. This means that if you have a friend helping you, each of you only needs to account for 25 pounds of that force. That’s not bad at all; you’ve probably lifted bags of dog food that are heavier than that!
What are the benefits of DIY steel building kits in Arkansas?
Most steel building kit owners are able to raise their own buildings without having to hire contractors to get the job done for them. That means you are able to save a significant amount of money on a project you can easily get done yourself. All of our manuals are very easy to follow and you do not need to spend any extra money on tools or equipment you don’t already have. All it takes is a few days of work and a little bit of help from your friends.
What are some applications for DIY steel building kits?
We create steel building kits for a variety of purposes. Our most common kits include steel barns, garages and aircraft hangars, though we have created and delivered kits for other purposes to other clients across the region.
What are the steps to raising a DIY steel building?
In general it is a four-step process. The first is to pour out the concrete perimeter footing on the level building site. Next, assemble the arches, and then raise them, securing them to the foundation. Repeat this step until all arches are raised. Finally, put on the finishing touches, including end walls, doors and tightening bolts. That’s all it takes!
