30x40 Metal Building
A 30x40 Metal Building is a popular size for home workshops and commercial garages as well. The most common design for a 30x40 building is to have 2 -20' bays. You could have one or two large roll up doors along with a man door to allow access for the building. Whether your planning on using this size building for auto repair, wood working, supply storage or as a maintenance shop, we can help design the building for your needs.
One thing that makes a 30x40 steel building a good choice for a residential work shop or garage is it's size. Depending on the amount of land you own, you may have to contend with property line setbacks. The compact footprint of a 30x40 building means that it has a better chance of fitting if space is a concern. Don't let the size fool you though, it is still roomy enough to make it a very popular choice for many applications.
What could you do with 1,200 square feet of space to work with? I know I could put it to good use by having space to work and not have to move everything around. Just take a look at this picture. Wouldn't you hate to work with all this stuff piled up around you?
To be honest, this is really my basement workshop. I have squeezed everything I can into this 800 square foot space and it drives me crazy. As you can see stuff is piled everywhere. I can barely work on one project without having to move everything around just to get to it. With a 30x40 metal building, I could straighten up everything and have room for my project cars, wood working, storage and more. I could even install a car lift to make my life a little easier and safer working on all my projects.
I would even have enough space to separate my automotive tools from my wood working tools and be able to work on several projects at the same time.
If your like me and have more stuff than you have space for, our popular 30x40 metal building kit is the perfect choice to give you enough room (1,200 square feet to be exact) to enjoy your shop again.
Of course, you may be a business owner looking for more space as well. A 30x40 steel building offers a great option as either a working automotive shop, office building or storage warehouse.

What makes a Renegade Steel Building different?
Glad you asked! Not all steel buildings are made the same way. We specify requirements to make a Renegade Steel Building the best you can get for your money.
Let's start with the structure itself. Items such as girt and purlin clips are factory welded to the primary and secondary members. This means your erector won't spend extra time bolting on those clips in the proper location.
The base of our buildings uses formed base trim. This heavier gauge, one piece system installs quicker and reduces the possibility of problems seen with 2 piece systems as well as supporting your manufacturers warranty on wall panels.
Renegade's long-life, self drilling fasteners are cast aluminum zinc with a EPDM sealing washer help enforce the finish warranties and ensure a long lasting, rust free building.
The wall panels have a "PBR" profile which stands for Purlin Bearing Rib. While some other suppliers may use the standard panel, Renegade uses the "PBR panel on the roof and walls of our buildings. This feature gives the system rigidity and weathertightness. Other panel profiles are available and have the purlin bearing system.
One other BIG difference in a Renegade building is that whenever a customer decides they want a window, we always include a framed opening. This provides a sturdy and secure structure for the window to attach to. It also provides a better fit for weather tightness.
Other companies may take the cheap approach and just sell a window that simply screws into the wall panel.
