a steel-framed home. It is not a metal home, metal
building home, pole barn home or any other hybrid residential dwelling!
Anything you can do with a conventional home you can do with a steel-framed home. The structure is what sets

maintenance than a conventional wood framed home. Educate your insurance agents and financial
