Info on barns. Need a decent low-cost barn.

I am in the market to buy a house and some land soon. Most of the places I've looked at don't already have a barn. I won't be needing a barn with stalls. I really don't put my horses in stalls and don't care for all the extra cleaning. What I need is a big building to store hay and feed, saddles and tack, fourwheeler and some other yard tools. So mainly a fully enclosed building with a lean-to shed on each side. One side for the horse trailer and the other side as shelter for the horses. I'll use wood to close it all around except for one end left open and connected to the pasture. I'll also be feeding them under this. Since I'm buying land, house, and barn all at one time I need as good a price as I can get on the barn. A good wood barn is out of the question because they are so expensive. Does anybody know about the lightweight metal barns that are put up by the companys making metal carports. I know they are pretty light but wondering if anybody has one or know somebody who has one. Do they hold up well? Are they good and dry/leakproof? I would appreciate any info. I have priced a fully enclosed 20x30 with garage door and two 12 wide 9 high lean to sheds at just under or right at $9000.
Or if there is certain company making good steel buildings you want to recommend. I would appreciate it.

Where do you live ? Any big shipping ports ? Around Norfolk Va there are lots of shipping contaners. Level the ground, add some gravel, put two shipping containers side by side, with a 10-12 foot space in between. Roof the center "Poof" instant barn.

Wow, now that's a new idea. Never thought about that. I live in north Mississippi.

Actually, that is a freaking awesome idea! With a little bit of work, the sea-cans could probably make great stalls... they'd be kick proof!
