Wisconsin Barn Steel Building

Customer Profiles


When Jean called Armstrong Steel, she was able to get exactly what she wanted, on time and on budget.

The Steel Building Everyone Always Asks Us About

Whether it’s online or on the phone, thousands reach out to Armstrong Steel every month looking for cost effective, durable and versatile construction solutions. After viewing our extensive online photo galleries, it’s not uncommon to hear one of our customers say, “Can you tell me more about the red barn?”

Jean S. of Houlton, Wisconsin designed her 40 x 30 barn for boat, bike, and recreational equipment storage. Jean was originally looking into a pole barn but ultimately chose Armstrong Steel based on customer service, price, and the quality that comes with pre-galvanized secondary framing. Armstrong Steel Buildings was delighted to add Jean’s barn to the growing number of structures we’ve delivered to Wisconsin.

Though Armstrong Steel frequently sells steel barn kits, Jean’s design was unique in that it incorporated a less traditional pre-engineered steel building roof pitch of 12:12. This was no problem for Armstrong’s fast and efficient pre-engineered metal building experts. When Jean called Armstrong Steel, she was able to get exactly what she wanted, on time and on budget.

“She knew right away that she wanted to work with us, and has sent numerous photos of her progress on the barn,” says Kitty Uhle, Director of Client Services.

Every Step of the Way


Jean elected to have Armstrong ship the pre-engineered building to her jobsite so that she could easily manage her own build out. Jean constructed the barn on weekend time and the metal building barn was completed in less than two weeks time.

“As I began searching for a steel barn, there was one company in particular that went out of their way to say some outrageous things about Armstrong Steel and desperately used scare tactics in an effort to change my mind. I’m glad I wasn’t influenced by the lies. Everything has gone great, I couldn’t be happier with Armstrong Steel and the way my building went up! They have been there for me every step of the way,” says Jean S.

Armstrong Steel has always been committed to delivering the highest quality building on the market at the very best price possible. But we also are focused on saving customer’s money so they can live better outside the walls of our steel buildings.

Don’t be enticed by the lowest price. Jean certainly wasn’t. Often times, these companies are the wolf in sheep’s clothing – just after your deposit. Don’t risk your project on anything less than Armstrong quality. Did you know that 95% of steel building companies are just brokers? Brokers are simply middlemen who order buildings on your behalf solely based on width, length and height dimensions. Beyond that, they hand over all quality control of your building to the cheapest bidder. Don’t settle for anything less than factory direct.

Because Quality Matters


Armstrong Steel has their own manufacturing facility, complete with in-house draftsmen and detailers that work solely on your Armstrong Building. Armstrong Buildings are unique as the factory is in control of the stringent specifications, measurements, standards, and guidelines for all the individual primary members, connections, clips, and weld specs. More control over the entire process means a better quality product.

While it’s easy to call Jean’s building “special,” it truly has a special reverence in our office. We’ve even given a special moniker to Jean’s building. We call it “The building that everyone always asks about.”

“We’ve designed and manufactured a ton of buildings, but this one is very distinctive,” said Eric Beavers, Armstrong Steel Executive Vice President. “Since we’ve shared Jean’s story and photos on our website, we get several calls a week about it. First time builders will check out our photo galleries online and are quickly drawn to pictures of Jean’s barn. It never gets old. We love showcasing her building, and I know she does too.”

“Regardless of a customer’s location or desired building size, Armstrong Steel remains an extremely cost effective building solution. This do-it- yourselfer’s success proves that no matter how big or small the project, Armstrong gets it done.” says Ethan Chumley, Founder and CEO of Armstrong Steel.
