Despite being mostly known for its potatoes (the state produces nearly one-third of the potatoes grown in the U.S.), Idaho’s agriculture is actually diverse. The state has nearly 25,000 farms and ranches that produce more than 185 different commodities, making it the third-largest agricultural state in the west. Other commodities include:
- Dairy products
One of the most popular benefits of owning a Quonset Hut storage building is the 100% clear span design. Unlike pole barn kits, Quonset huts do not require the use of beams and trusses to stand.
Every SteelMaster building is self-supporting, which leaves plenty of room on the interior to easily store large items and plenty of products and large equipment.
Cheap pole barns kits may sound very appealing; however, you will only end up paying more money in the long run due to the cost of maintenance. Traditional pole barns are made of wood, which is vulnerable to rotting, pests, moisture damage and fire. A pole building that isn’t consistently maintained can be a major eyesore, decreasing the value of your property.
Although they can be a little more expensive, steel barn kits are an ideal choice in the long term because they require little to no maintenance after assembly. This is because SteelMaster uses a coating called Galvalume Plus that helps to prevent rusting and basic wear and tear on the arches.
Plus, our steel agricultural buildings are some of the strongest structures in the industry. Every SteelMaster Quonset Hut is constructed with high-quality, commercial grade steel that is corrugated at our factory to further enhance the strength of the building.
Our portable steel buildings are designed to withstand some of the most severe weather events including category 5 hurricanes, powerful tornadoes, dangerous hail storms, and heavy snow loads.
Industrial Steel Buildings
In addition to agriculture, other major industries in Idaho include food processing and mining.
Purchasing a facility is an important investment for any size processing operation. You need an affordable, durable and versatile building that’s as easy to buy as it is to build and SteelMaster has the experts who can deliver.
SteelMaster’s prefabricated manufacturing and processing buildings are available in widths of up to 150 feet with unlimited length. Because there are no length restrictions, our buildings are perfect for future expansion opportunities.
Our multi-use steel buildings can be used for on-site storage of raw materials, parts and machinery, offices, production lines and more.
In addition to processing facilities, our steel building kits can be used for mining storage buildings. The clear span design is helpful in storing bulk materials and expensive mining equipment.
Plus, when work is finished at one mining site, SteelMaster Quonset huts can be taken apart and moved to the next location. The size and design of your mining building will determine the best way to move it. All you have to do is uncouple the building arches and rebuild the structure in the new desired location.
