By studying the manual first, one can find out if the manufacturer's idea of do-it-yourself is the same as yours.

Ask the company to read the instruction manual before buying a metal building kit.

Please inform your readers who are thinking about buying a metal building kit to ask for the
construction manual before they buy.

Some manufacturers are misleading in their ads. By
studying the manual first, one can find out if the
manufacturer’s idea of do-it-yourself is the same as yours.
This will help prevent unexpected headaches and expenses,
such as having to hire extra people to help put the
building together. Also, potential buyers can check out the
metal building’s foundation requirements. They can be more
complicated and expensive than you think. Take this advice
from someone who has learned the hard way.
