Metal Building Homes

Apologies for no images on this post, apparently WD Metal doesn’t like free promotion of their buildings.

Based in Pleasanton, Texas, WD Metal Buildings specializes in “barndominiums” buildings that provide a comfortable, efficient and afforable place to hang your hat. With a wide range of floor plans, the company offers designs and layouts that meet every need.

What is a “Barndominium”?

Blue Barndominium

Simply put, a barndominium is a metal building with interior living quarters. Essentially, you turn the interior of a barn into a home, so you can take advantage of the cost savings without having to sacrifice comfort.

Available in all shapes and sizes, these barn-style homes are a budget-friendly way to build the home of your dreams.

As an added bonus, these homes are extremely low maintenance and energy efficient.

Why Choose WD Metal Buildings?

There are many reasons to choose WD Metal Buildings over other competing companies.

  • Installation: Unlike competing companies, WD Metal Buildings actually installs the barndominiums it sells.
  • Open Floor Plans: With no interior supports in the way, these buildings have truly open floor plans.
  • Durability: Heavy-Duty Frames on the end walls.
  • Continuous Roof: The roof design of these homes eliminates ridge cap, so leaks become a thing of the past and wind doesn’t destroy the roof. The roof features a welded framework to create a single, solid roof.
  • Steel Framing: All homes feature durable all-steel framing – no wood is used.
  • Red Oxide Primer: Red Oxide primer is used on all of the framework in the home to extend and preserve its life.
  • Galvalume: The roof and walls are 26-gauge.

WDMB’s erection crew has many years of experience, and the company is fully insured with commercial liability and worker’s compensation.

To help potential homeowners find the right floor plan and options, the company offers build-out estimates, which include: AC and heating, framing (inside), plumbing, electricity, sheetrock, insulation, texture of the paint, stain floors, interior doors, toilet access, light fixtures, kitchen cabinets, and more.

WD Metal Buildings offers decent barndominiums and with quick installation, you could be sitting in your new comfortable home in no time.
