Try www.nationalbarn.com for pole buildings. I saw an "advertised special" about a year ago and ordered one just as steel was starting to go up. The special was $6995 for a 30x50x10 with one sliding door, plain galvanized steel. No concrete or anything else included. I had to have site ready before they come out. It had gone up $300 from the time I saw the ad until I called a month later. Last time I saw the ad it was up another $1200! Sure glad I ordered when I did! The ad was in a South Carolina electric co-op magazine, andthe building is in SC. Varies by location. I added roof insulation since that's hard to put up later, cost another $1500. Painted steel would have been another $1500, but mine was going up on an old farm anyway -- galvanized matches the other buildings just fine! I deleted the sliding door (no credit, but still cheaper than a custom ordered building) and had them leave a 50' side off so it would be easy to back a concrete truck up later. Used the poles for the concrete forms. Cost me $3000 for some fill dirt and the concrete -- finished myself with the help of family and friends. I'm finishing off 14' x 30' on one end w/8' ceiling. Above the ceiling in the center I'm decking about 16' x 14' for a little overhead storage. Will have to modify one truss, but that's no big deal! Don't have to worry about snow load in central SC! Only the finished area will be heated and cooled. It's adequate, but I'll have $15K in it when done. I already plan on building a lean-to across the back for covered (but open) storage, and maybe the front. I can go out about 15' with just a 1' drop and have enough slope for rain. It helps to be in a warmer climate! Adding length to a pole building is easy as long as there's enough room to extend.

I priced out the same features with my building (apples to apple) between Morton and the Mennonites, and the cost of Morton was double the Mennonites.

Hey, Saving $19,000 could help you put some insulation in the building!

Good Luck!

If you're located in Minnesota, take a look at Miracle Truss. These buidings can be done D.I.Y. and are super. Me and a group of friends had mine up in two weekends. They are easy to finish off on the inside and insulate after the building is up. Their web site is www.miracletruss.com.

You might want to check into this building company...
http://www.perka.com/
I just came across them this weekend and the buildings look good. Just about any configuration you could think of with an impressive span capability...
Their P2000 insulation is interesting also!
