Adding a few aesthetic extras goes a long
ways towards dressing up a building Most customers want the
economics of a metal building but don't want it to look like
"Steve's Air Conditioning" in their back yard. (no offense to
Lean-To's are economical and create much welcomed
protection from Arkansas's sun and rain. After 26 years of
building buildings a few things have come clear. Human
beings and hound dogs love lean-to's. Lean-to's can come off
all four sides. They can come with a dirt floor, a finely
graded gravel floor or a concrete floor. When pouring a
concrete floor for a lean-to we typically give it a broom
finish for outdoor traction. There are three choices with
Classic American Farm is where the high side of the
lean-to starts at the main buildings drip edge. The lean-to
has a lower roof pitch than the main building.
Monitor Style is where the lean-to starts a couple of
feet lower than the main buildings drip edge. Some people
refer to this as a Kentucky horse barn. This style is
Nuevo Style is where the lean-to keeps the same
height and roof pitch of the main building.
Furring Walls We can build Furring Walls for you on the

Internal Walls are essentially bedroom and bathroom
walls" These are built in such a way they are ready for you

Internal Insulation is the second layer of insulation
(fiberglass batts) that is put in between the wall studs on
the exterior walls. All OMB buildings come with a R-10 value
and Low-E insulation installed sandwich method (this is done
so the building will not sweat). When the building is going
to be a home the R-10 is not enough. A second layer of
insulation is needed on the inside of the exterior walls. We
recommend and install fiberglass batts insulation as shown
in this photo. This second layer of insulation can be had in
R-19, R-24 and even R-30 values.
We like to quote the internal work only after we have
quoted the "shell" and you have acknowledged that this is
what you want.

connection from going through the wall. The height is
already set to meet code. The rebar coming up through the

Inset Bay is engineering speak for a roof overhang
coming off the end of a building that keeps the same
roofline. Inset Bays were popular with service stations of
the 1920's. Today they are economical and very useful. Like
a lean-to they give protection from sun and rain but are
Light Solutions Putting fixed glass windows high in the walls flood the

Sliding Doors tells the world that this is a horse
barn. The old fashion sliding door still plays a part in
this modern world. Any horse owner can tell you why they
want a sliding door instead of a overhead.
Dutch Doors just about seem standard for a fancy
horse barn. Built strong enough to hold up to a draft horse
