Structural steel


DMD

Recommended Posts

Where can you find structural steel in the Philippines? I am looking for I-beams and girders. I'm looking to put together a 40'x40' steel building with a usable 2nd floor loft for a living area and 12' ceiling underneath for a shop. Thank you.

Welcome DMD.  You may get better answers if you let readers know the area you plan on putting up the building.

Don't really know where I'll be living somewhere in the Visayas. If the materials are available pretty much anywhere, I can deal with that. Thank you.

I live in Iloilo in Western Visayas.  I can pretty much buy steel anywhere and everywhere.  If you are looking for some special steel/metals I'm not sure but the everyday stuff is readily available.

Additionally,  (wherever you decide 'set up shop' here)  make sure you have a visa which entitles you to work and or,  run a business, if you plan on showing your face behind the counter, as it were.  :wink:

You will also need a local building permit.

Probably none of the locals have bothered with one, but I'm assuming you won't be a Filipino ?

   I plan to retire to the Philippines as soon as I sell my house in Alaska. Which I hope to do by spring. I'm planning on putting up one building so I can live above my shop where I plan to do anything I want to do. It will have an industrial look but serve a dual purpose.

You better have a good cooling plan for that upper living area!  And/or the whole building, dependent on your needs.
