What is the Cost of a 40×60 Metal Building?
Instant prices & quotes for metal garages, shops & barns
For the base building package, you can expect to pay between $17,000 and $22,000 for a 40×60 metal building.
A building of this size (40′ x 60′ = 2,400 square feet) is a good choice for a large garage, storage building, shop or barn. How you use your building, as well as the location and any accessories necessary will have an effect on the overall cost. The basic style of your steel building will also determine the price.
Also, note that this standard size building can also easily be supplied as a 60’x40′ building for those requiring an extra wide building for say an aircraft hangar or multi-bay auto shop.
Please see pricing table below for a more in-depth cost breakdown for the two main building design options.
