Morton Building - to be tore down, 40 by 90
[Return to Topics]

Does anyone have an idea what a used Morton Building, 40 by 90, be worth?

There were horse stalls in it; however, those have been sold.

Any info would be appreciated.

Not a morton but I saw one of those steel-ribbed qounset-type bldgs about that size go at auction for $3000. The guy decided where he wanted it put, torch-cut the whole thing off above the footings, unbolted it, moved it, reassembled it and poured new footings around the cut ends of the walls for another $1000. Only his 12-foot-tall bay door is now a 10-footer. Still quite a bargain!

Our 45 x 60 (or so) Morton Cattle building cost us around $15,000, new and set up.

However my brother-in-law bought one the size of yours (we had to dis-assemble) with 3 garage doors for $1,000. It seems to me it's how badly they want to get rid of it. We STILL haven't put together my brother-in-law's building yet. If you need to hire a crew, figure that into the price of what you'll pay. Good Luck!
