Common Questions

  • How many square feet in a 30x60 building?

    A 30x60 building has 1,800 square feet of floor space. To calculate the square footage of a rectangular room or building, you simply multiply the width (30') by the length (40'). Therefore, the square footage of a 30x60 building can be calculated by multiplying 30 by 60, which equals 1,800 square feet.

  • How many cars can fit in a 30x60 building?

    With doors on each end of the building you can store up to six cars in a 30x60 building. Alternatively, if the doors are placed on the sidewalls you could comfortably park five cars or trucks and still have over 900 square feet of workshop or storage space.

  • How many bedrooms can fit in a 30x60 building?

    For a single-story home, you would have space for three small bedrooms or two full-sized bedrooms. Alternatively, if you choose a two-story configuration, you would have sufficient floor space for a four-bedroom family home; for design and layout ideas, see our sample metal house plans.

    If you require more space, you might wan to consider our 40x60 metal building which offers either 2,400 sq ft on one level or 4,800 square feet as a two-story house.

  • What is a 30x60 red iron building?

    Red Iron is a common term used to describe a pre-engineered steel building. Although the buildings are not made from iron they do have a red finish to them due to the red oxide paint that is applied to the framing to prevent corrosion.
