If you are considering the construction of new post-frame steel buildings in Wyoming, you are most likely interested in knowing how long the process takes. Because building design can vary so much, there are no simple, straightforward answers to construction time. Nonetheless, we can share some basic information that should help you estimate how long your barn will take to build from start to finish.
Planning – Days or Months
The best post-frame steel buildings in Wyoming are the product of careful planning and preparation. The best custom horse barn builders in Wyoming can build almost anything you can imagine, but they can’t read your mind. You need to know how big of a structure you need, how you will use it, and have a general idea of how you want it to look. Once you know what you want, your builders can help you with design specifics, but it is always best to spend a little time researching and planning before you meet with your builder.
Contract – A Few Days or More
Once you have chosen a builder and agreed upon a design, you will need to sign a contract that clearly defines the building’s design, materials, warranties, and the building process. It is extremely important that you read and understand your contract before signing. Misunderstandings between the client and the builder are always unfortunate. Don’t be afraid to take your time and ask questions. Professional builders should be happy to answer any of your questions and clarify anything that seems unclear.
Permitting – Two Weeks or More
Permit requirements vary significantly from town to town but are rarely difficult to acquire once provided with the correct plans.
Site Preparation and Cement Flooring – One Week
We can’t build your new barn on an unprepared site. The topsoil needs to be removed and a level pad needs to be built with a minimum of 4″ of gravel on top. If you would like to have a concrete floor for your barn or garage in Wyoming, you can choose to either do a monolithic pad before the building is built or pour the pad after the building is erected.
Primary Structure Construction – Three to Four Months Average
At MQS, we average three to four months from contract signing to completion of your new post-frame steel buildings in Wyoming, depending on the availability of our construction crews. Actual build time is typically one week or less. Extra large buildings can take significantly longer, but that is only sometimes the case.
Additional Finishing – Two to Eight Weeks
After the construction of your post-frame steel buildings in Wyoming, you may choose to install insulation, sheetrock, HVAC systems, bathrooms, or something else. These options take additional time, so remember to calculate them into your construction timeline.
With adequate planning and preparation, we can build the structure you need with minimal interruption to your work schedule. Contact us for more details.
