Metal building construction


We are building a metal storage shed 60' x 100' and wondering if it's worth doing ourselves or should we hire? What could we save and what are the problems we might encounter?

Metal building construction


Bondo, Yes to the tools etc. I've done wood structures but not metal. I think there are a lot of nuts & bolts or screws into studs, but don't have much of an idea about timing for this project. Is there a "standard" rate based on square footage or an hourly rate that would give us some indication?
