steel building mfg recommendation

I am looking for recommendations on a steel building MFG and/or maybe a contractor in the Murphys, CA (Calaveras County) area to install it. I planned on doing the build myself, but I am now thinking I will do the foundation and have a Company do the install of the structure, if it is for the right price. The shop will be approx. 30x40 at the largest if I can fit it, I know I can fit 26x36.

Thanks

if you aren't looking for one of the really heavy duty ones, carportsandmore did mine (12G 2x2 tube frame) and i'm really happy with it. 3 roll up doors, windows, man door, etc. can play around with everything on their website and get a real price. includes install.

I am not for sure that style will work for me. I would have to check for snow loads, insulation ability, and able to install a wood stove.

here's a couple off ebay, but I would have to install them

If there is no other advise on local builders, how about advise on any national Companies that deliver metal buildings?

no real leak issues, i got some water coming in the bottom of the roll up doors, but i added a gutter and that solved that issue. sometimes it gets some pretty good condensation, but if it was insulated that wouldn't be an issue. I would think a wood stove would be fine. not sure on snow load, but they should know. probably go with vertical roof panels and get a good angle on them.

After doing some more reading, research and thinking, I am more open to the idea of using one of the enclosed carport type buildings. I also found a video that shows how to install a wood stove using a high temp silicone boot https://youtu.be/zHa9OV3WD44

the other thing I found impressive in the video was when he walked across the metal roof and the minimal flex that it had.

I'm in Stan. county and had my 30x60x12 carport garage put up and am really happy with it. I found a supplier for insulation that fits between the studs and starting the install of that. I have the the vertical roof and if I remember correctly was a 30lbs snow load. I wish I had spent the extra money on vertical siding, I thought it was just cosmetic at first but you get extra girts with vertical siding. I used the company american carport and valley shed was the distributor. Not sure if they service your area but for a smaller shop it's a great bang for bucj option.

thanks for the info, who was the insulation supplier?

I should get my pad cut within the month, and then I can determine the size of the shop.

WMP-50

You can get it in different widths, thicknesses, and lengths. There is a pickup location Stockton to save on freight.

I have not committed to a building type or manufacturer yet, but I do have a bulldozer coming on April 5th to cut my pad. After we cut the pad, I will have a better idea on the size and budget, for the building.

Sweet. Something to keep in mind is that the carport style building is after 30ft wide they switch to a different wall and truss design and they jump up significantly price per sqft.

My Building has been delivered and installed. It took 3 workers 2 days to install, and I am very happy with what I got. I purchased it through Carportsandmore.com I was lucky enough to get it purchased, less than 1 week before this years price increase. Prices for my building went up a few thousand dollars.
