We finally got the 20 acres I've loved for years. House plans are almost done and I've got barn fever. The tricky thing is that in this economy I want to be very sure that the house and barn will sell when we retire in 10 years. I was hoping to mirror home details on barn and do most of the inside work ourselves. Hubby is VERY good at plumbing, electrical, trim etc since he was electrical engineer. Does anybody have experience with barn buildings, steel vs wood. I thought steel would be big bucks but an 80x120 steel arena came back REALLY reasonable. ANY experiences, good or bad, would be appreciated.

Also, has anybody had experience with Clearspan or Coverall arenas...Just curious...
