As a proud owner of a metal building in Coeur d’Alene, you enjoy the convenience and having a large, open structure on your proper for many things.  It could be for storing large equipment and vehicles, housing your farm animals, or for stocking a number of different supplies for your farm.

Even though you love your Coeur d’Alene metal building, aren’t there some ways you want to improve its look and functionality?  MQS Barn offers several different options on how to do just that, and we will discuss a few of those below.

Adding a Lean-To

A common way of providing a shaded area near your steel building in Coeur d’Alene is by installing a lean-to.  This add-on is perfect for expanding the porch or sitting area for several more people.

A lean-to can partially cover supplies or hay bales from weather elements like rain, hail, snow, or sleet.  Just remember, a lean-to will not fully protect all items, as it is open to wind or dust and debris that could blow in.

Interior Office

Part of working on the farm still involves some office work.  Many farmers take advantage of the wide-open floor plan of their metal building in Coeur d’Alene by adding a small interior office.

This can be a great area to sit for just a bit and enjoy some quiet time before getting right back to work.  It’s also an ideal spot for doing bookkeeping, ordering supplies, or a place to cool down after a hard day of work on the farm.


If you want to improve ventilation inside your Coeur d’Alene metal building, you may want to consider adding a cupola.  These small, dome-like structures sit at the highest point of the building’s roof.  Not only do these add ventilation, but some designs will also add natural light to the interior of the building.

Cupolas are very functional, but an added benefit is that they are aesthetically pleasing as well.  Most cupolas provide a traditional barn look to the structure, which adds just an extra touch of style to your Coeur d’Alene steel building.

Garage Doors

Whether you want to add a commercial, residential, or carriage-style garage door, MQS Barn can make that happen.  Just make sure you consider what type of equipment or vehicles you will be moving in and out of your metal building in Coeur d’Alene before making your final decision.
