In a day and age when lumber prices are going thru the roof, alternatives are required to meet budgets and timelines.  A metal building provides a simple to build, cost effective alternative. The challenge is accomplishing a pleasing façade that will satisfy the needs of the homeowner for identity and aesthetics.

This home is designed to accommodate a “bolt-up” metal building technology. This is in contrast to a “weld-up” metal building.  The advantage of a “bolt-up” metal building is the ability to manufacture the entire frame in the shop and deliver to the site ready to be stood-up and bolted together in a much shorter frame of time. Welding connections can take weeks or months. Bolt-ups can be assembled in days.  Exterior roofing and siding also install much faster on metal buildings than do conventional residential construction techniques.

There are limitations to the configurations you can employ using bolt-up construction though, and extensive research was conducted to not violate the rules of most manufacturers who provide bolt-up metal buildings.  Mueller, Inc. was the model that was followed, but many other manufacturers will be similar.  Mueller, Inc. is based in Temple, TX and serves Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Louisiana.

Some liberties were taken to employ the uses of residential windows and doors to provide code required egress and allow for some sense of styling and a cozy feeling. These instances will need blocking, flashing and possibly welded connections to accommodate, but they are few. The interior walls are framed as 2x4 studs but could easily be replaced with metal studs. The front and rear porches are also framed as rough sawn cedar for aesthetics.

It is recommended that customers consult with their local metal building manufacturer to review plans and assess the feasibility of building this home with their systems.

Floor Plans – ¼”=1’-0” scale floor plan indicating location of frame and masonry walls, support members, doors, windows, plumbing fixtures, cabinets, shelving, ceiling conditions and notes deemed relevant to this plan.

Exterior Elevations – All elevations at ¼” = 1’-0” scale in most cases.  Some older designs may contain 1/8” scale side and rear elevations. Drawing will indicate overall configuration of home at each side view and make note of plate heights, roof overhangs, window header heights, roof pitches, materials used and extent to which they are used and enlargement of any details we feel necessary to explain the construction.

Building Sections – ¼” = 1’-0” building sections are included when there is no other reasonable way to indicate the volumetric/height conditions in the home.  Most of this information can usually be determined from the exterior elevations.

Cabinet Elevations – 3/8” = 1’-0” scale elevations indicating configuration of cabinets, heights, widths, type of components used, cabinet material and finish, counter surfaces, appliances,

Framing Plans – ¼” – 1’-0” scale framing plans indicating size and spacing of members as well as bracing and blocking required for structural purposes. Local codes will most likely need to be consulted.

Foundation Plans – ¼” = 1’-0” scale foundation plans indicating location of structural walls, grade beams, reinforcing steel and structural columns.  Consulting a local engineer is advisable as well as is analysis of soil conditions on site.

Electrical Plans – ¼” = 1’-0” scale schematic plans indicating location and types of electrical fixtures, switches, outlets, and how they are to be switched.  Plans do not include circuiting or wire sizing.  Plans will also include specialty items such as hose bibbs, gas connections, location of a/c equipment, return air vents or other mechanical/electrical/plumbing items which need to be located.


These items are NOT included:

Architectural or Engineering Stamp - handled locally if required

Site Plan - handled locally when required

Mechanical Drawings (location of heating and air equipment and duct work) - your subcontractors handle this

Plumbing Drawings (drawings showing the actual plumbing pipe sizes and locations) - your subcontractors handle this

Energy calculations - handled locally when required
