Generally, people consider metal buildings having dimensions of 100ft x 40ft, or 4,000sq.ft., as small. But, just because they say it’s small doesn’t mean that these buildings aren’t beautiful and don’t have many uses.
But how much do they cost?
Depending on your various additions and customizations, the price starts at around $26,000. Typically, this minimum price excludes foundations, permit fees, accessories, and customizations.
You can use a 100×40 metal building kit from Rex Metal Buildings as a workshop, garage, warehouse, school, recreational facility, church, or community hall. You can probably think of many more uses to suit your unique lifestyle. But, we couldn’t possibly list them all.
Furthermore, just because these versatile little buildings are small doesn’t mean they’re not quality products. And, to back that up, we supply them to our customers with a 40-year limited warranty.
Read on, and you’ll learn about the small but beautiful 100×40 metal buildings we supply.
100×40 Metal Building Uses
A typical 100×40 steel building from Rex Metal Buildings has many uses for private and commercial customers. Here are just a few of them.
Every sport or recreation could use purpose-made premises like this. Its size is ideal as a home or community gym, dance studio, craft or art studio, martial arts dojo, or orchestra practice venue.
You can even add extensions for showers, and changing rooms or storage for instruments and craft materials.
Depending on your community’s size, you can use one of our buildings as a worship center, regardless of religion, or a community meeting hall.
You could also use the main hall as the meeting place and add small extensions for the kitchen, restrooms, and storerooms.
A building this size is indispensable on a farm, small or large.
For example, use it for feed or crop storage, livestock shelter, dairy, and farm equipment storage.
As a small business, one of our 100×40 metal buildings is ideal as a combined office and production or warehouse facility.
There’s also room for canteen and restroom facilities either in the main structure or as additional extensions specifically designed for those purposes.
Furthermore, you can add extra buildings to the original as your business grows.
Suppose you’re fortunate enough to own a fleet of cars, an RV, a trailer, or even a light aircraft.
One of Rex Metal Buildings’ 100×40 steel structures will be ideal for storage and provides a warm vehicle maintenance space.
Generally, 100×40 metal building prices will vary with usage and accessories.
For example, a tool shed will cost less than a garage or storage building. This is mainly because of the accessories chosen for the required purpose.

- Seasonal garage: $0.80-$0.90/sq.ft. – $3,200-$3,600.

100×40 Metal Building Cost Factors
Several factors affect the price of a 100×40 steel kit from Rex Metal Buildings.
Let’s consider a few.
Although a 100×40 steel building is limited in size to these dimensions, you can add additional features to assist in its purpose. For example, add a lobby for outdoor wear and a restroom or kitchen onto the primary standard building.
These additions and extensions require extra framing on the main building and separate foundations. So, they will cost more than just the extension’s price.
Where you intend to place your metal building affects the overall price.
- Shipping costs vary with your distance from one of our supply centers. We try to keep our delivery prices to a minimum. But, sometimes, we can’t avoid extra shipping.
- Every US town, city, and state has unique building codes and zoning regulations. The cost of complying with these laws will vary depending on their requirements. Not only that, but the fees for your permits will differ too.
Every building needs a strong foundation on which to rest. So, even though a 100×40 metal structure is classed as small, it still has a substantial weight and must be protected from subsidence with concrete foundations.
However, the foundation type and the amount of concrete used depend on your plot’s geology and soil type. Therefore, you must hire a structural engineer to provide the calculations needed for the foundation’s design.
Don’t scrimp on this phase, as the local permit office will probably require a plan signed off by a certified structural or civil engineer. Find out from the town hall what their requirements are before ordering your metal building kit.
The amount and grade of steel used in the building’s design will affect its price. Consider the building’s purpose before deciding on the steel grade.
For example, a building used for a livestock shed or garage will need lower-grade steel than a building devoted to office, recreational, or community use.
Depending on the structure’s architectural style, you might need to pay extra. Typically, the roof type makes a difference.
For example, a flat roof might cost more than a pitched roof. Similarly, the number and size of windows and doors will alter the price accordingly.
For some applications, your building might require insulation.
For example, if the structure is to house a business or to be used as a community hall, you will need enough thermal insulation to withstand the temperatures in your climate zone.
Optional Extras and Add-ons
There are many optional extras available for your steel building. Let’s consider a few here.
But, if we’ve missed one or two that you need for your facility, contact our sales agent for information and prices on your unique requirements.
There is a full range of colors you can choose from for walls, roofs, trim, doors, and windows.
Doors and Windows
You can have as many doors and windows as you want, as long as the structural integrity of the standard building isn’t compromised. If it is compromised, we can probably design a structure to accommodate these.
We offer all types of garage doors, personnel doors, double-glazed windows, and porches.
Extreme Weather Requirements
Don’t worry about extreme weather.
We can design your building to comply with or exceed your climate region’s wind and snow requirements.
Why Use A Metal Building?
Metal building kits are precision made from high-quality steel designed to withstand heavy snow, high winds, and extreme temperature.
Furthermore, steel doesn’t taste nice! So, you won’t find termites taking up lodgings, and rodents won’t be able to gnaw their way through the walls to find a new home.
Generally, steel is structurally strong. So, if designed correctly, it can support itself and the additional loads imposed by extreme weather.
Using steel to produce an interior space with no intermediate supports is easy. Therefore, a steel building will be ideal for indoor sports stadiums and equestrian arenas.
What Do We Supply?
Rex Metal Buildings specialize in designing and supplying steel buildings for private and commercial use. We can provide our products as a kit for you to assemble using your own contractors.
Alternatively, if you sign up for our turnkey package, we will take control of your project from the initial design stage and make sure it’s finished to your satisfaction.
Then, all you have to do is turn the key, open the door, and use your new building with no additional worries.
Rex Metal Buildings have talented in-house design and fabrication teams who can produce just about anything from a tool shed to a fully functional house, stopping off at a warehouse or livestock shelter on the way.
And if you want something a little out of the ordinary, we can supply that too.
Custom steel buildings can be works of architectural art and still have the structural strength of steel. If we can design it from predominantly steel, we can produce a prefabricated kit and sell it to you.
But, if all you want is a simple enclosed building, we already have many sizes and shapes in stock, so you won’t have to wait too long.
A standard 100×40 steel building is a competitively priced structure you can use for almost anything. Our advertised prices are for the basic kit.
But, if you prefer, we can take control of the build and offer our turnkey service. However, remember that construction costs can vary significantly depending on the project’s complexity.
But overall, you probably won’t find a product or service as cost-effective as those provided by Rex Metal Buildings. It makes sense to contact our sales agents, who will gladly walk you through what we can offer.
Durable, Environmentally Friendly & Energy Efficient
Rex Metal Buildings make their products from heavy-duty galvanized steel, with a good quality paint finish bonded to the metal.
They will withstand many decades of high winds, snow, and rain, without rusting, rotting, or warping. Furthermore, the structures are fire-proof and don’t support termites, mold, mildew, or other types of rot.
We make the joints between panels and around doors and windows with such precision that they are effectively draftproof. Therefore, choose a good-quality thermal insulation suited to the R-Value required for your climate zone.
Combine it with double-glazed windows and doors. And you have a very energy-efficient building that will reduce your heating and air conditioning bills to a minimum and ensure the inside remains cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Finally, your building is completely recyclable. Steel is one of the few materials that can be infinitely recycled.
At the end of its life, the entire structure can be melted down and recycled into fresh steel to provide more useful products. Even the rust goes into the furnace.
Flexible Solutions To Your Needs
Rex Metal Buildings have the ideal solutions for residential and commercial construction projects. We can design and produce metal buildings for almost any purpose.
Really, there is no limit to the variations we can produce. And every building we supply is safe for its occupants and attractive to look at, provided it’s been assembled according to the supplied instructions.
We can also provide you with a pre-designed kit that we hold in stock. Alternatively, our design team will take your unique ideas and produce an entirely building code-compliant and customized structure.
Finally, if you can do a bit of DIY and choose a small building, you can take the kit and assemble it with a couple of buddies and a few simple tools.
Alternatively, find some local contractors who are familiar with steel buildings, and they can erect the kit. But, if you want, we can take over the management of your construction project from the initial design to the final internal finishing paintwork.
We manage the contractors, so you don’t get involved until we give you the keys upon completion.
