What they were looking for: "Metal building to use as a home, with front porch cover and separate metal carport."
Price paid: "I was looking for metal building costs per square foot that didn't exceed $4. I purchased a 40x60x14 metal building for $9,483 with 2 doors and 12 ft. front porch cover which made the length 72 ft. in length. The porch also wraps around both 12 ft. sides which makes part of it 52 ft. wide. All construction will be done by myself and two friends, which saves about 8-10 thousand dollars, as well as the foundation which the quoted price was $3.85 per sq. foot. By doing it myself I was able to do it for $3,300, a savings of $6300. All plumbing and electrical will be done by myself and friends as well as the h/ac for under $2,400. Fireplace cost for rock and pipe: $400. I will add 12 windows. Total cost is under $25,000. House will appraise for $130,000. "
