M & M Barn Sales specializes in high-quality building material packages. We have sold a growing number of building packages over the years and we would love to work with you! With our extensive product selection, we can take your project from foundation/drainage phase all the way to finish interior insulating, wall covering, and electrical phases! And, if you purchase a package from us, we will honor your loyalty by providing a continuing discount on materials for interior phases! We work with do-it-yourselfers and contractors alike. NOTE: Because everyone builds just a little differently, is it our preference that contractors supply their own material list. We will then work side by side and get you a quote as quickly as possible.
There are two ways to price our packages.
These packages are pre-estimated because they are very common, cost effective sizes. Except where noted (*), these packages feature: Premium Everlast Lynx 28 ga. Metal Roofing and Siding, 12” overhang on eaves and gables, maintenance free Grizzly entry doors, and quality lumber components. Trusses and any eave opening headers are properly sized to ensure a very durable, long-lasting building. Many companies only sell a basic building that is frankly unattractive and then they charge a premium to upgrade. We sell an attractive building right away and upgrades/non-structural revisions are no problem!
Basic revisions/upgrades that are non-structural include:
These revisions take less time than estimating a custom building and can add just the right amount of custom look to make the package unique!
Please note that if you are intending to have your project completed by a contractor, Contact Us for a list of recommended contractors. If you already have a building contractor we will be glad to work with them in pricing components and material lists but, due to time and manpower we cannot provide entire takeoffs for contractors. Rather, we work side by side and can usually generate time and cost efficient results by splitting the workload.
If you desire another size, or if the placement of key items such as overhead/sliding doors needs to be changed, simply click the “Quote Spec Sheet” button and you will see the information that we need to get you a custom quote. You will also find a partial list of options. Please browse our Products pages for more ideas. For the most part, the sky’s the limit on what can be achieved! If you have any questions feel free to email, call us, or stop in.

Below are some things to consider while planning and designing your project. We have been part of helping customers plan projects for many years and below are some common issues to take into consideration.
Check with local code officials and utilities about setback and right-of-way requirements. What types of permits are required for your project? Is your location feasible to accommodate septic, power, and drainage aspects of the project? Does your building site footprint allow for future addition of decks, lean-to’s or other additions? Is your site properly prepared for construction to begin?
It’s important to think about how your space requirements when planning your project. What are the tallest and widest things that you will need to be able to move in and out? Do your openings need to be on an eave portion or can they put on a gable end? Generally speaking, a wider opening can be placed on a gable end more cost efficiently because load bearing beams will not have to be calculated. Will spacing of doors allow for vehicles to be parked without doors opening and hitting another vehicle? Do you ever plan on putting a lean-to off the side of your building? If so, ceiling height will have to be considered so that there is adequate room to put the lean-to and achieve proper slope and headroom on the low side.
Will any portion of your building ever be used for living space? If so, be sure to think of all aspects related. Example: Building codes have egress requirements for certain areas and that will affect the door and window sizes allowed.
Truss styles are also a key factor to consider. Example: Attic trusses with room built in can provide a cost effective way to have a pre-designed, pre-engineered space that can later be finished to your liking.
Think about your end goals for your project. It can pay big time to think and plan ahead if your building is going to be done in phases. Example: it is always a good idea to consider installing double bubble under metal roofing if a building is ever going to be heated. Even if a building is kept at a fairly low temperature inside; the metal roofing will condensate and drip if there’s no barrier. Once this happens, the labor involved with trying to correct the problem will be much greater than if bubble insulation was installed first.
The same idea holds true for under slab aspects. If you are constructing a heated garage, office, etc. consider whether or not you will ever want radiant heat in the floor. This of course will affect whether tubing and insulation gets put in the floor. Also important to consider is the installation of conduits and other piping for the future. Would you ever want to put a bathroom or wash bay in your building? If so, think about the drains and drain lines that will need to be installed. Thinking ahead and having a plan can greatly reduce costs and aggravation when the next phase is ready to begin.
The quality of individual building components is more thoroughly discussed on their respective pages on this website. Again, think about the possibility of change in use, heating/cooling, and maintenance of building over your lifetime. This can affect the quality of roofing/siding, windows, insulation, and doors that you choose. Examples: Everlast Roofing’s quality panels will reduce the chances that you ever have paint integrity or edge rust issues on your roof or walls. Installing a Grizzly door with PVC Jambs and slab will eliminate the need of maintenance year after year. Installing composite decking/railing will greatly reduce the annual maintenance on those areas. Choosing high-quality Vinyl or PVC siding will also extend the life and attractive look of that portion of your home or garage. All of these will result in some upfront added costs, but just may worthwhile depending on your budget.
It’s important to remember that some project enhancements are more easily done when crews and or equipment are on-site for the initial build. Example: Snow guards and polycarbonate skylights are generally installed more efficiently when a crew is already set up to install new metal roofing. Crews that use scaffoldings to install roofing can easily install snow guards while the equipment is on site. The same would be true for installing a ceiling. If a lift is already on site, why not utilize the equipment and save rental/delivery costs down the road?
