America is a country that was founded on steel. It is synonymous with the Industrial Revolution and continues to put meals on the plates of millions of families as workers either produce it in mills or work on job sites where the heavy-duty metal is constructed to eventually house airports, hospitals, schools, libraries, sports arenas and more!

Metal buildings for sale in NC remain an attractive option for buyers because of this principal, and it most certainly infiltrates its way into the self-storage market.

In the past, self-storage was limited to only a few select shapes and sizes, almost all of which were constructed with wood. There weren’t really pre-made kits available at conglomerates like Wal-Mart or Home Depot, so unless you were a very good craftsman or knew someone that was good with woodworking, building outdoor storage on your personal property was not much of an option. Additionally, outdoor storage units, such as sheds, cottages or small barns were considered only a ‘rural thing’. You only needed one if you lived or worked on an agricultural setting such as a farm or ranch. In the most extreme cases, lucrative wooden sheds were built on large properties to house lawn care or gardening supplies. Self-storage was considered more of a luxury than a necessity.
