Absolutely! We most definitely could incorporate a second story into our buildings. There are a few ways to go about this. One way is to design your building with the appropriate height in order for it to allow a second floor and then you can build out the second story with traditional wood.
A steel mezzanine is another way to create a second floor, however, we still recommend framing the additional floor using a more traditional method to help keep the cost down. It is almost always more economical to frame a second floor out of wood inside the metal building. That way you get all of the benefits of the metal building like the easy install, durability, and warranties but then you still save money inside where the steel doesn’t have as many advantages over wood. Since metal buildings feature column-free construction, you can build non-load bearing walls almost anywhere and create a second level easily if the building’s height can accommodate it. To assist, we can connect you with a local contractor in your area once you decide on a particular home to finalize the interior layout and estimate finishing costs.
