Steel Building Constructed in a Day
Rome might not have been built in a day…but this SteelMaster 20’ x 36’ Building was!
Well, sort of…
Bob Hunt of Wildwood, Florida did manage a little prep work before his six friends joined
him to construct his A-Model 20’ x 36’ SteelMaster Garage/Workshop.
Bob already had the cement poured for his concrete foundation. And the night before his
friends came over to assist, he put together some of the steel arches himself, just to get a
good head start.
Bob purchased his 20’ x 36’ Storage Building back in 2006, but remembers the entire
process like it was yesterday. “Putting the building up with the help of my friends was a
breeze!” he said. “It also did not hurt that I have a Ford F250 with a bucket that made
reaching the highest clear spans that much easier.”
Bob designed and built the end walls of his
building himself with siding to match the
exterior of his home. He also allowed enough
space for a door that would open wide enough
to accommodate his truck. Even with the
truck parked inside, he still has plenty of
space for all of his tools, saddles, horse feed,
and plenty of additional storage.
According to Bob, “My SteelMaster
Buildings is serving its purpose and then
some. As a matter of fact, I ended up
purchasing a second building for work. We did not need an enclosed space at work, but
once again, SteelMaster had just what I needed. I guess you would call it a carport, because
it is not enclosed, but provides shelter for parking work equipment underneath the steel
When asked how he found out about SteelMaster, Bob said, “Originally I went to a
farming/rancher-type show. That was when I knew I needed “something”. Then I started
researching – and I did a lot of research. I talked to a lot of companies. SteelMaster had the
best all-around deal. I thought they had the right product at the right price point.”
Other than having a superior product at a fair price, Bob said his dealings with the
SteelMaster staff were great, adding that everyone he spoke with seemed to really enjoy
Bob has become such a fan of SteelMaster, that he recently signed up to become a “Partner
in Steel,” (PIS). He gets compliments on his building regularly. Now, if anyone calls
SteelMaster, mentions Bob Hunt’s name, and purchases a building of their own, Bob can
expect a check from SteelMaster.
SteelMaster appreciates our friends who tell others about their SteelMaster experience.
Getting a customer referral is the most flattering compliment we can receive. So we figure
why not send a little extra cash to our Partners in Steel for believing in our product and our
service enough to stick their necks out and send folks our way. It is the least we can do.
Becoming a PIS is not a time-consuming process. It is as easy as going to our website and
SteelMaster recently celebrated our 30-year anniversary in February. And, according to
Michelle Wickum, Director of Marketing at SteelMaster, “Our staying power in this economy
is largely attributed to our ability to market a superior product at a reasonable price. Our
staff and our customers alike expect quality and integrity. And we deliver.”
SteelMaster’s steel and metal pre-engineered buildings are designed for a broad range of
residential and commercial applications including homes, farm buildings, garages,
workshops, agricultural storage, Quonsets, airplane hangars, RV storage, roofing systems,
carports, military buildings, commercial warehousing, and industrial storage as well as a
wide variety of custom building applications including athletic facilities, retail stores,
churches, bus stops, smoke shacks, doggie dorms, and correctional facilities.
So, there you have it. Rome was not built in a day, but Bob Hunt’s SteelMaster
Garage/Workshop/Storage facility was… with a little help from his friends.
