LTH Steel Structures offers several metal building home designs and steel framing kits that vary in square footage and price. As of 2015, the company ships domestically and internationally. AmeriBuilt also designs custom floor plans for metal homes with three different designs: Gambrel, American Barn and Gable End.
Metal buildings are designed to withstand high seismic activity, heavy snows and windy areas. A benefit of having a metal structure for a home is that termites don't infest the material, saving the homeowner money on fumigation and structural repairs. Steel buildings are often made with recycled materials and have great energy efficiency, making them more environmentally friendly.
