Just as the name says, a workshop is where you get work done on the farm. Whether that means a place for washing machinery, welding, repairing machinery, or just a centralized place for your business, Morton Buildings will help you create the perfect insulated workshop building that’s comfortable and functional.
Insulated workshops designed and constructed by Morton are strong like steel, as comfortable as wood, and as low maintenance as concrete. They are virtually maintenance free, energy saving, and long lasting. Between efficiency in building and efficiency in owning, your decision to build with Morton has both short- and long-term value.
Morton buildings are constructed to withstand all sorts of elements. That’s because they are made with the industry’s toughest steel, high-quality lumber and best paint available. Our high-quality, durable materials, and sound construction methods ensure you will have a building you can be proud to own.
Before you begin a new construction project, the most important question to ask is, how big to build? In order to help determine the size needed to meet your current and future needs, we’ve created a “Farm Shop Design Series” to guide you through this question and many more.
Your Morton insulated metal building can be customized to complement any existing structures, including your home. Many of our customers choose to combine an insulated workshop with their machine storage to create the ultimate farm shop. We work with many vendors to provide everything from premier windows to one-piece hydraulic doors. You can also add features like acoustical steel to cut down on noise and Morton’s exclusive Energy Performer® insulation system to provide a comfortable and energy-efficient insulated building year-round. Door jamb protectors, bird-blocking, and cupolas are other popular options.
You may also want to think about additional interior customizations as you plan what to use your workshop for. Do you need a kitchen area? How will you organize your tools? What kind of lighting will work best? Where is the most practical place for a workbench? Will you create a dedicated office space?
For exterior customizations, Morton’s roofs are designed for long-term good looks, and they’re available in a variety of colors and roof pitches. The many available options for roof types include:
Deep Fascia Overhang
Every insulated workshop building needs durable and long-lasting doors that stand up to the outside elements and increase the efficiency of the building. Our door options
Bi-Fold and Hydraulic doors
Your Morton sales consultant will work with you to determine which type of door best suits the unique requirements of your workshop.
Wainscot adds style and protection, which you can add any time in the life of your buildings. Finishes available include:
At Morton Buildings, we know that the best buildings are a perfect blend of form and function. This is why we are proud to offer the FLUOROFLEX® paint system to all of our customers. Stringent testing has resulted in a paint that is resistant to fading, chalking, peeling, and red rust—it event resists UV rays, rain, and pollution.
Our steel paint comes in a variety of colors, from classic barn red to deep evergreen, so you can choose a color that best suits your operation or compliments other buildings on your property. You can design your insulated workshop with different color combinations online with the Morton Buildings 3D Studio.

Good work and professional approach by the building crew—they were always willing to explain their progress. Sales consultant was very thorough in design of the building, very knowledgeable of what Morton had to offer!
Benefits of a Morton Insulated Workshop
Our customers are involved in a wide variety of farms—commercial, hay, organic, aquaculture, flower, hobby, orchard, subsistence, and ranching. No matter your type and size of farming operation, Morton can deliver a strong and durable insulated workshop building to meet your needs and style.
A strong farm building starts with a strong foundation. Learn more about our revolutionary Morton Foundation System and other foundation choices.
Our commercial-quality Hi-Rib steel is more flexible and resists cracking during the roll-forming process. Combine this with our color-matched, Stainless-Steel Internal Drive (SSID) screws, and you’ll have superior protection from rust and corrosion that no other company can deliver.

Second and third generation owners will tell you their Morton buildings look like new after decades of use. From foundations to fasteners, every detail is thoughtfully engineered and designed for minimal maintenance. In fact, the reason we offer the industry-leading warranty is because Morton buildings:
• Won’t corrode or rot because of treated wood, true stainless-steel screws and rust-resistant ring shank fasteners
• Stand strong against high wind and snow loads
• Eliminate leaking and condensation build-up through roof pitches and ventilation systems
• Control condensation and thereby protect insulation from moisture and sagging
Working with Morton
When you choose to build with Morton, the experience is as solid as the building itself.
We operate within a culture of accountability. Before, during and after completion of your building, we’re your one point of contact. It’s no wonder the vast majority of our projects stem from referrals.
Your Morton sales consultant will meet with you to discuss your ideas and budget for your insulated workshop. Working with you, a building layout will be generated based on your specifications. As part of the larger Morton network, he or she will guide you through the entire process to:
• Arrange pre-build details, like concept development, building plans and quotes, site plan, permits and zoning details, budgeting and financing
• Oversee the building process, communicating with you throughout
• Check on your satisfaction after completion
