Steel building kits offer a range of benefits for the owner builder looking for ease of erection and ultimately faster building times. Steel kit providers offer almost 100% flexibility in design under roof, and can be delivered 4-6 weeks after a signed contract to provide.
Steel frame usually refers to a building technique with a "skeleton frame" of vertical steel columns and horizontal I-beams, constructed in a rectangular grid to support the floors, roof and walls of a building which are all attached to the frame. The development of this technique made the construction of the skyscraper possible.
You can also find steel framed Barn Kits which are a modern version of barn homes, which saves the difficulty of conversion. Some providers, have an frame erection service that sets foundations/piers floor systems, wall and roof frames, roofing and gutters. So you just finish the home..too easy. Many providers offer steel kit homes as well as wood now to cater for the 'wood vs steel' debates and to give alternatives to owner builders.
