    That is a serious shop right there. My guess on paint would be somewhere between a whole lot and a whole hell of a lot.

    Why would you have to have it painted?

    Mine came from:
    http://www.pioneerpolebuildings.com/

    ..with this steel; and it doesn't need any additional paint:

    http://www.pioneerpolebuildings.com/color.html

    Steel has a lifetime warranty.

Buy to much paint they wont return it.
    thanks for the input fountain but you may have hit a wrong button on the calculator, talked to a few painters on the phone yesterday and she's roughly 44,880 sq ft and there talking 225 gallons of primer and 225 gallons of paint .I dont think 32 gallons would do the front wall 400' X 14 ' the price should be interesting over the phone they were both $60K and some change

    Im confused, based on your dimensions I come up with about 13,000 sq ft as well or 31.7 gallons of paint.

    Are you painting the roof as well?

    400x14 = 5600 sq ft x 2 = 11200
    60x14 = 840 x 2 = 1680

    12,880 total square ft
