Metal garage doors can be placed on the end or on the gutter side like in this picture. Please keep in mind that if you order metal garage kits with the garage doors on the side, the leg height needs to be 2 feet taller than the height of the garage door; when you get the garage doors on the end, the leg height only needs to be 1 foot taller than the height of the garage doors. Also, steel garages come standard with 29-gauge metal siding going horizontal, but you have the option to upgrade to vertical sides and a vertical roof as shown in the picture.
A garage can be used as protection from theft, infestations, or harsh weather at a price that won’t break the bank. However, garages aren’t just for peace of mind about your home security; they can have many different uses. For example, our custom metal garage buildings can be used as nice and cozy guesthouses when relatives visit or maybe a cabana for your poolside needs! A garage can also be turned into a man-cave, she-shed, or just a small space to get away from life’s hustle and bustle. We’d love to hear your ideas on how we can build and customize a garage that will fit all your needs, you can contact us at (844) 860-4950 to get started!
Once we get an idea of what building kit best suits your project, we work with you to add customization options, including a wide variety of doors, windows, and exterior color schemes. The ease of steel construction allows us to modify layouts and add further customizations without breaking your budget. From design to construction, we provide the materials and expertise to transform a building kit into a garage.
On the Boxed Eave Style Metal RV Cover, (A-Frame Type), the RV Cover comes with the Standard Horizontal Roof. The Roof Panels run parallel to the side of the Structure. Water will drain to the front or the back of the Structure. On this style you have the option of having the roof panels installed vertically for an additional charge. We recommend the Vertical Roof Style for the small difference in price versus the Horizontal Roof Style.
You love the open road, traveling, exploring new places, and you do it all in your second home, your RV. After the adventure has come to an end, what do you do with your second home? Many people pay extravagant fees to store their motor coach at a storage facility far from their homes, making it inconvenient to visit, work on, or enjoy on a whim. The sentiment is understandable; I paid a lot for my RV, I want to keep it safe from the elements. But what if you could keep your RV close to home while also keeping it sheltered and protected? That’s where Elephant Structures comes in. For those weeks and months spent at home, our RV, 5th wheel and motor coach cover will serve as a safeguard for your home away from home, providing the protection you would expect from a storage facility with the convenience and luxury of proximity to your home!

This wood hardness list ranks 75 types of wood by their Janka rating. Explore our wood density chart to see which hardwood is the best for your next project! The Janka hardness scale measures the force that’s required to embed a steel ball halfway through a sample of wood. The ball is 0.444 inches in diameter and fired with increasing force. The pounds of force (or newtons if you’re using the metric system) needed to push the ball to the center is the Janka value you end up with. It’s a great way to measure how resistant a piece of wood is to denting and wear. Our Janka wood hardness chart shows how durable certain wood types are.
A motorhome carport can be turned into a garage easily by just adding walls and doors to the structure. Many of our customers who purchase an RV cover online prefer adding side panels to cover one side of the carport for protection from harsh elements. While an awning from the sides doesn’t fully enclose the carport like a metal garage, it does provide the space needed for maneuvering your RV.
Driving down the highway, you’ll see a huge variety of logos on the backs of cars, but chances are good that they were made by one of these 15 auto companies, who own and build a vast majority of models on the roads these days.

We do not allow you to pick up steel garages from our warehouse. However, we do offer the option of having steel garage buildings dropped off at your home so you can assemble them. We prefer to deliver and set up our garage structures, but if you’d like to assemble yours yourself, you can. Although you will save 5% on the purchase price when you assemble your own metal garage, installing the garage yourself does void our one-year workmanship warranty.
Did you know that adding a high-quality metal garage building to your property could increase the value of your home? One study conducted by Florida State University concluded that the addition of a new garage could add as much as 13% to your home value. Of course, as is true with any home improvement project, the quality of the garage building will go a long way in determining what sort of equity gains you will realize over time.
All of our cheap steel buildings include free delivery for greater savings, and we’ll also build the structure on your property for free. Your new building will require a level surface for its foundation, though: A level gravel base or a concrete pad is recommended for all buildings we sell at Alan’s Factory Outlet. Placing your modular structure on this type of foundation gives it an extra element of sturdiness. Our prefabricated metal buildings for sale can fit a large number of existing foundations, and if you have any questions about whether your existing site will work for a new metal building, just give us a call and we’ll help you figure out the details.
Yes, we have a wide variety of sizes available for both our steel and metal garages. They can be 12 feet, 18 feet, 20 feet, 22 feet, or 24 feet wide. The triple-steel garages are built in 26-foot, 28-foot, and 30-foot widths. We also have 40-foot-wide models, available in lengths of 32 feet, 34 feet, 36 feet, 38 feet, and 40 feet. The lean-to model comes in 36 feet, 42 feet, 44 feet, 46 feet, and 48 feet. It has 12 feet on both sides of the building. The lengths start at 21 feet and get longer in 5-foot increments: 26 feet, 31 feet, 36 feet, 41 feet, 46 feet, 51 feet, 56 feet, 61 feet, 66 feet, 71 feet, 76 feet, 81 feet, 86 feet, 91 feet, 96 feet, and 101 feet. To make them longer than 41 feet, we attach two of our steel garages end to end; they can be built longer than 101 feet. We recommend the vertical roof for any garage built 41 feet or longer.

This metal hardness chart organizes different types of metal using the Mohs hardness scale, a metric used by scientists to determine the scratch resistance of different minerals. With diamond at the top of the scale at a score of 10, elements and alloys can fall along the metal hardness scale from 10 (the most scratch-resistant) to 1 (the softest). We’ve arranged common metals in order of hardness in our handy chart and in this list. Our list includes different kinds of metal from metallic elements like silver to common alloys like steel.

Yes. We can make residential metal buildings in a custom size, but we charge the customer the price of the next larger standard size of metal buildings for sale. For example, let’s say you need a 17-foot-wide building and the standard widths are either 12 or 18 feet. We would charge you for an 18-foot-wide building in this case. This same rule applies to length. If you need the length to be 24 feet and the 26-foot-long model is too long, we can make the base 24 feet long, but it will be priced at 26 feet long. As you determine the size you want for your custom metal buildings, please remember that when we say 26 feet long, that includes a 6-inch overhang on the front and back ends, so the exact base is 25 feet long.
