Before I had my buildings built, I did extensive research on most of the different building construction styles. Morton was one of the ones that I researched. After many hours of this, I decided to go with the Timbercraft Buildings. The difference in cost is not too bad, but it is more money for the Timbercraft. The company that did mine was exceptional. On time, showed up when they said they would, stayed on my buildings until their work was completely finished, and no cost over-runs. Strictly by the contract. The buildings are fantastic. I had a 40x48x14 shop built, a 30x40 residence, with an attached 30x30 garage. If you want to take an hour or so, read through his web-site. Lots of good info. Talks about the post and beam construction as opposed to the standard "pole building" types. A much better building, in my opinion. https://www.cornerstonebuildingcompany.com/

Any estimates on the cost of a 30 by 40 (1200 sf) pole building. Is there a square foot price? How hard is it to get something like this approved in a residential neighborhood?
I used to be a home builder and realize there are many variables that would affect price.

I reached out to Morton for a 36x60 design I have. The local salesman out if NJ did reach out, and gave me a verbal of $150k.

When I pushed him to help me realize my dream and talk about itemizing the estimate so I could see where I might be abe to cut cost, he refused. I think he qualified me and felt I wasn't a lead worth persuing.

Maybe he was right. I am moving forward on a stick build and hoping to come in about 50% under his estimage- finishing much of the interior work myself. We'll see.

150k seems outlandish. I am close to one of their warehouses and would guess without it being insulated and finished inside, that size is a 40 to 50k building.
