How much do custom buildings cost?

Almost any metal building can be custom-designed, depending on which company you choose to buy from. Horse barns and other farm buildings are quite easy to customize, to accommodate the needs for any number of horse stalls or the space needed for a riding arena. On commercial storage buildings, the addition of extra rolling doors or multiple walkthrough doorways is a frequent request from buyers.

Prices people paid for custom buildings

What they were looking for: “Gardening tool storage and misc. other storage. I will add concrete floor myself. Ventilation would be nice. It gets really hot here. Need lowest price possible.”
Price paid: “$1,700 for 10×10 heavy steel building. Arches and trim kit. Only sides and roof. Does not include front & back of building, which I will build from wood. This was an item built for a customer who cancelled, so I got a discounted price. Includes great RF rating (won’t get as hot as regular steel buildings), coated steel much stronger than used on average buildings, plans for foundation, and great service including phone support for any problems in construction. Easy to assemble. Can be disassembled and moved if needed. Highly resistant to high winds. The best I could find for a hurricane prone area. Free shipping. Their custom buildings can be paid for in installments, but not delivered until paid in full.”

-Kalispell, MT

The carport of the house I am considering is not on level ground. Entrance to the carport is done through a gate from the road. The incline ends with a level surface which is about 12 feet long… The carport is opposite to the back door of the house. Can you do a custom design that would accommodate this unusual landscape? I need a structure with open sides on steel supports with a heavy gauge steel cover which would provide shelter for a full size Dodge Sprinter.
