I haven’t worked on my steel panel building system in several years. Recently I decided to make some improvements I’ve been thinking about, and the Maker Faire in San Mateo was the motivation I needed. So about three weeks ago I started fabricating parts for the new building. I’ve made some significant changes and the building can now be assembled in one hour without any tools, and disassembled in 40 minutes. It did take five people to assemble it due to high winds, and three people to disassemble.
Porthole windows and vents simplify assembly and improve security.
Barn doors are easy to attach.
Cargo straps hold everything together for temporary installations. There are pre-punched holes for screws for a cleaner look on more permanent installs.
Everything for an 8′ x 8′ building fits in a cargo van.
Cost for this 64 square foot building is $8000 when hand built one at a time, or $125 per square foot.
