    Cheapest storage building options?

    I want a 24x30 building for my pickup and tractor. I would want a concrete floor and a 18x8 garage style door with electric opener. Not insulated. The land is not level so I will probably have to haul in dirt. What would be the cheapest options for storage buildings this size?

    cheapest option would be what ever construction you would/could do yourself........

    ...after that its best to get several local contractors in that specialize in different style and get quotes....IE..pole barn type...metal building type....wood stick framed...etc

    local building codes are a factor also

    I used the pole barn approach. One benefit is that I could buy the concrete later (in my case, about 6 months later) so that I could delay that cash outlay a bit longer.

    I used Pole Barn Kits | DIY Pole Barns They can provide the materials only, or they can also provide a crew to build it. I chose the latter.

    The materials for my pole barn shell were $6-7000 not counting the special siding I used (remember, I lived in a snooty city at the time...they didn't look kindly on steel siding/roofing).

    Here is the video of the construction. I don't think they will do asphalt roofing anymore. (Likely because they didn't charge me enough for roofing my building).



    Anyway, this was a very cost effective approach.

    I was very surprised Carmel allowed you to build a second building on your property. I was shocked they allowed a pole barn.

    I know that I can do some of the work myself if I stick build or do a steel building. But it will take me forever since I work over 70 hours a week. I would have to hire out the dirt and concrete anyway. Plus how long the time frame that I would have if I pull a building permit if I did the work myself? I might take me 2 years to get it done if I did most of the work myself.

    You and I are in the same boat. I been trying to stick build a shed for 2 years. I even have a guy that works with me that can help. Only problem is we work 7 days a week.
    Thatís why I been looking at the carport garages. Pretty cheap. I believe for $3000 I could have a 12x21 or so with a roll up door and a walk in door all installed. I would be doing limestone or something for the floor. That would be for my tractor, mower, etc. then Iíd plan on getting or building a huge work shop on concrete later.

    A couple years ago I put up a 22x36x12 steel carport from unitedcarports.com. The building itself was right around $8k, plus another $7k for the concrete. The township made me put in a 3' wide, 2' deep stone trench around the building for runoff.

    Once the floor was down 3 guys arrived in a pickup pulling a flatbed trailer with the materials. About 8 hours later I had a carport.

    One thing I liked about this was I wanted a building with enough internal height I could load and unload the camper under roof. With a pole barn I would have had to go with 14' side walls. Not a concern for you but just though I'd share.

    Something like this. It seems to be along the cheapest route. I just found that link to shoe you what Iím talking about. I have a guy down the road that sells something similar. I havenít talked to him yet. My buddy stopped in one day for me.

    One thing about car ports is snow load - donít really know if Nebraska gets a lot of snow or not.

    You will not see carports of any kind around here - they are just not designed to carry any snow load.
