Hemp has been an in-demand commodity for some time. Hemp fibers are used in the production of everything from textiles, to paper, to fuel, to biodegradable plastics. Because hemp is a readily renewable resource, hemp has also helped to meet the rising demand for eco-friendly products. But with the 2018 legalization of hemp agriculture in the U.S., hemp has quickly become a truly booming business. Thanks to the development of CBD products, along with other medical, food, and industrial applications, hemp has quickly become one of America’s top ten agricultural crops. Experts describe the ongoing market for hemp as having an essentially unlimited potential.
But what does that have to do with metal buildings, you may ask? Plenty! If you’re going to start your own hemp business, you’re going to need a reliable, protected facility for hemp processing. And the best outdoor buildings you can get are custom steel buildings from Carport Central!
This week’s featured building is a 30’ x 51’x 12’ facility we installed for the Buffalo Hemp Company in Floyd, VA. The sturdy vertical metal roof and vertical metal siding protect 1500 square feet of completely usable, clear span interior space. The roof and siding are finished with an attractive burnished slate look, and the building also features one 10’ x 12’ roll-up door and one walk-in door for easy access. As you can see in the photo, the fine folks at Buffalo Hemp also chose to add their own climate control equipment, so they could divide up the interior space for the dual purposes of hemp storage and hemp processing.
But whether you’ve decided to get into the hemp business or not, there are lots of ways you can use a custom metal building like this. Make it your own agricultural building, garage space, workshop, general storage area, or even finish it for residential or vacation space. Just as the possibilities for the booming hemp industry are practically limitless, the potential applications for a custom steel structure like this are practically limitless, too!
Metal buildings from Carport Central offer more strength, durability, and resilience than comparable stick builds, too. Steel is simply more weather-resistant, moisture-resistant, pest-resistant, and fire-resistant, for starters. This particular building is certified to withstand wind loads of 140 mph and snow loads of 30 psf, too – in other words, it’s tough, and built-to-last! We can also build to accommodate whatever minimum wind and snow load requirements you may have in your specific area, as well.
In the case of this featured building, the customer chose to have us install on a concrete foundation they had poured ahead of time (Carport Central doesn’t provide any paving or groundwork services ourselves). But one of the beautiful things about choosing one of our metal buildings is that the foundation of your building is really up to you. We can install on essentially any level site, including concrete, asphalt, gravel, even plain hard ground!
