Awesome 10x12 Barn Shed Dec 27, 15 10:41 AMSee how Jason built his very own 10x12 barn shed and had a great time doing it. Please register to participate in our discussions with 1.5 million other members - it's free and quick! I have seen one in Pleasanton, TX on 3006 that is on the right hand side right off of I37 going south. I have a 2400sf metal Mueller building which I built into a beautiful home, complete with brick fireplace, huge living room, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, spacious kitchen, game room, vaulted wood ceilings and ceramic tile thru out.
I know this thread is a little out of date but I found this site by searching for some information about converting a metal building into a home.
We have a 30X40 existing metal building, on a concrete slab with sewage and water lines and electricity in one corner of the building already, on our land along with a very small cottage type house. If you have some really good construction background and enough time to work on it, a modified metal building might be doable with a little expert help (could make some BIG mistakes if you don't know what you're doing). When I looked into it, there were several companies that specialized in building metal homes, maybe they can help you with converting one?


I have a friend who built this home in Austin, Texas, it's a 50x80 metal building, all steel building, insulated inside with metal walls, home part is approx. 2.With the timbers cut as in the photograph nail them together to form the basic framework. So there we have it, a simply installed shed base that can accommodate an uneven ground surface.
This floor extends beyond the walls of the metal shed so when it rains the water will run down the sides of the shed, onto the floor and back into the shed in the gap between the floor and the walls.
Usually, there are two types of anchoring if you are not building on top of a concrete slab. Gather the proper lumber to cut your floor joists, rim joists, and 2 two band boards and 4x4 skids. Lay out your 4" x 4" skids properly spaced and lined up on your foundation, making sure they are level.
All of the replies were so good I thought I'd post my question in hopes that someone can help me. We are currently living in the house but would like to convert the metal shop into our home. Cut a piece of plywood or OSB and nail it securely to the frame work with 50mm long ring shank nails.
If the base needs to be relevelled at any point this is easily achieved using the plastic shed feet. If you live in an especially wet area or termite prone area you could make the entire floor out of pressure treated wood.


Check your local building codes if you haven't already to determine what type of anchoring you need to do for your garden shed. One way is to anchor your shed to the ground using cable tie-downs, or anchoring it with your floor being fastened securely to posts which are sunk into the ground at a pre-determined depth in concrete. Cut all floor joists to proper length along with your 2 rim joists and two band boards and skids. Set the floor frame on top of the skids and measure the diagonals to make sure it's square. Although every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information and design, the user is ultimately responsible for the use of this information.
I would have extended the roof 2-3 feet all around the edges and went with a higher pitch for the look, just what I like. Otherwise you will be fighting a leaky floor for the entire life of your metal or plastic storage shed.
