Custom Utility Building


Utility buildings offer the advantages of a carport and a storage area at the same time. If you’re planning to customize your unit, you can even turn the utility building into a garage for additional space, especially if you have more than one vehicle. Remember that we will work with you according to your needs and whatever design you like the most.


Take this 18’(W) x 36’(L) x 10’(H) unit, for example:


• 14-gauge
• A-frame Vertical Roof
• Front Gable
• 2 – 15′ Headers
• 15′ Carport
• 20′ Enclosure (Sides & Ends)
• 2 – 8′ x 8′ Roll-Up Doors (front end)
• 6′ x 6′ Roll-Up Door (on the side)
• 36″ x 72″ Walk-In Door (on the side)
• Installed on Concrete



This metal building has a 20’ enclosure (20’ of garage), and the rest of the space (15’) is just the carport. Clearly, the enclosure will be used as a garage because of those roll-up doors. It can even be used to store machinery or equipment, if the owner wants a workshop.


We offer 12 different colors to choose from at no additional cost. Remember, we can install on any ground, as long as it is leveled. If you prefer to have your building installed on concrete, however, we can do that as well. Don’t forget to ask about our 90-mph wind warranty.


Give us a call! If you ask to speak with a sales representative, our experts will help you customize your building according to your needs. We can also provide you with a free sketch so that you can visualize your metal building better.

Metal Building with a Lean-To

Additional Extensions to Your Metal Storage Building

Lean-tos are very handy when it comes to additions. They don’t just offer protection—they can also serve as extra space or a small carport for your vehicle! Most of our customers prefer a 3-foot or larger drop on their lean-tos, but remember that it’s your choice how to enhance your metal building!

Types of Lean-Tos:

We offer two different styles when it comes to lean-tos. The first one is the regular drop lean-to. As explained earlier, this lean-to has a gap from the original height, coming down to whichever height you prefer.

The second style is a continuous lean-to, which means that there’s no gap in between the first height from the second one. You can see the sample of a continuous lean-to below:

What Makes American Steel Carports Different?

Unlike other companies, we provide the right number of trusses in order to protect our metal buildings from the environment. However, we also recommend that you acquire our concrete, mobile home, or asphalt anchors in order to avoid disastrous situations. Another of our features is that we count with a variety of sizes when it comes to roll-up and overhead doors.

Here is a great example of a metal building with a continuous lean-to.

  • 26’W x 31’L x 11’H
  • 14-Gauge Galvanized Tubing
  • A-Frame Horizontal Roof
  • 36″ x 72″ Walk-In Door (on the side)
  • 18 x 9 Roll-Up Door
  • 12 x 30 x 8 Continuous Lean-To
  • A-Frame Horizontal Roof
  • (1) Full Side

American Steel Carports will take care of the delivery and installation of your metal building on your level site or concrete slab. We want to make sure that our buildings meet your expectations and needs. Remember that you can always give us a call for more information. One of our sales representatives will assist you and answer any questions you might have about our buildings.
