Metal Building with High Roof Pitch in Pagosa Springs, Colorado

Purchased from Metal Building Outlet in April, 2013, this 40x60x14 Garco-brand metal building now serves as a shop in Pagosa Springs, Colorado.

It features (3) 12×12 framed openings and (2) 3070 walk-doors, a wind load of 90 mph, a ground snow load (GSL) of 93 lbs. and a roof snow load (RSL) of 65 lbs. The customer opted for a higher than normal roof pitch (6:12) because he felt it improved the building’s overall appearance, and chose the high snow loads because of Pagosa Springs’ heavy snowfall, which averages 67.4 inches per year.

Pagosa Springs lies along the Colorado/New Mexico border, and this steel building spans both state lines. Pagosa Springs is nestled on the Western Slope of the Continental Divide, and lies 140 miles from Salida and 277 miles from the Colorado state capital of Denver.

The buyer hired a contractor to assist with the building erection. Click here for a listing of Colorado-based contractors.
