    I am looking for plans and advice on building a large steel building. I intend to have a two level living quarters on one end. Large open shop on the other with two or three bays. I am looking at an approximately 50'X 100'building.

    Does anyone know of building plans or a good builder in the Central Texas or East Texas area? I know what I want, but don't have a clue where to go. Lot's of steel building suppliers on the net, but plans for this type of building with Living Quarters are next to nil.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks,

    A lot of insurance companies won't cover living quarters in a storage building because of replacement cost and life safety code issues. (Gas fumes, exposures to chemical storage, etc.) You should check your Zoning requirements too. Not legal everywhere.
