Steel Animal Barn in Blue Rapids, Kansas

Supplied by Metal Building Outlet for a livestock producer in Blue Rapids, Kansas, this clear span metal farm building with an attached steel lean-to has plenty of space for housing animals, feed and related supplies.

The main metal farm building has the sheeting removed on one wall, making the metal lean-to accessible from the inside. The combined steel structure has a traditional barn look thanks to White exterior paint and Evergreen trim and gutters, and doors in several different sizes make it easy to move cows, farm equipment and other large goods in and out.

Some of the animal storage building also sits atop a concrete stem wall. All building components arrived onsite partway put together, leading to a fast, affordable construction process in comparison with other building methods.
