Steel Building Size?
We have a 20 acre horse ranch and are putting up a steel building. We're lost on what size we need, so I was hoping to get some advice.
We have a 2 bdrm 1700 sf house with decent closets, on a slab. The attic area is going to be expanded to a 3rd bedroom.
There is a 6 stall barn with a tack room and a place for hay storage, but no extra room for other storage.
We will want two car bays in the metal building, plus need to store a small tractor and its accessories. We need a workshop with an area for tools and benches. Some of the workshop's floorspace can do double duty as the tractor's home. We'll also need to store our "toys", kid's and adults; bikes, an ATV, two kayaks, a few storage boxes, etc. It will be kept nicely organized and we have a strict budget, so we'll have to make do on some of these desires.
Also, we can upgrade to have windows, etc. in the future, so that we can get maximum size now, which is obviously much harder to change later.
Our desired budget is $25k, but our max budget is $30k.
We're near Houston, TX.
Any brilliant thoughts to help us decide? Any "been there, done that, so here's my recommendation" kind of comments?
Thanks so much!!
