One thing I can see is definately faster... what about insulation? We get a little cold here in the winter, so insulation is a must.. one thing that I can see that would be a huge advantage for me would be the quickness of getting it up

I like your new wood one too.
One downfall to metal is the purchase cost,, and then the pain in the but of insulation, among other things

I priced spray on insulation, roughly 12k. I'm just going to run 8' wide rolls of insulation with the heavy white backing like they use on the steel buildings. I will be putting steel on the inside walls and ceiling then i will blow in insulation in the ceiling. A steel building this size was double in cost and that is with a 1.12 or 2.12 pitch roof. Also it would screw me up with bay spacing unless I wanted to spend a lot mor money.. I like the looks of the 1' over hangs and I feel it will fit better beings close to my house.

New building turn key(concrete, finished interior walls, Lights, electric, heated floor(already have outdoor wood stove for the BTU's), and a/c)without any equipment around 75k. Refinishing old building and lean-to of the back roughly 7,500. That is with me and buddies doing all the work with the exception of a neighbor which I gave him A 2000 Harley Duece to over see and help with this project. He is also going to do the addition and 28x38 garage off the house. So all in all I made out mighty well.
