Metal Builder is one of seven magazines created by Shield Wall Media of Iola, Wisconsin. It is published four times a year as a supplement to Rural Builder magazine.

Rural Builder magazine is part of a growing network of magazines and trade shows owned by Shield Wall Media.

Rural Builder is a business-to-business publication that covers the news, companies, products, and information that professionals involved in post-frame building, metal frame building, and other types of rural construction, need. Originally launched as Farm Building News in 1967, Rural Builder works hard to provide constructive help with eight issues per year, including an annual Buyer’s Guide that puts suppliers and contractors in touch with each other. You will find tips and tricks, ideas and solutions for projects, and information about industry education and trade shows.

How Metal Builder is Unique:

  • The only publication aimed at builders who focus on building with metal and also builders who would like to know more about the process.
  • Will be moving in 2024 to be a section in Garage Shed Carport Builder Magazine.
