Herb, you guys in Shalimar ought to grow gills--doesn't it thunderstorm there 11 months out of the year? The line parks up over Crestview every afternoon, as I recall. We here in Colorado envy the moisture, but we sure like the typically clear skies we get 95% of the time! Those big rains only come a few times a year here, and maybe only twice at night, so we wouldn't lose much sleep.

I am planning on Building a 80 X 60 Steel Building to house my airstream or two, an airplane or two, my car and truck. As well as a huge apartment for me to live in. Putting the apartment in the hanger will be chaper than building a house. I can spend a little extra money on the interior of the living space. The apartment will be 1500 sq ft with two bedrooms, two baths, kitchen, living room. Below the apartment will be a guest suite, shop, and utility room. Oh Yeah CP for two rigs with full hookups.

It should look something like this when I am done.
This is my bosses hangar at work.
In the fore ground the airplane I flew this summer. Right next to it the tool box.
To the right my airplane
You can figure out the rest....

What are the standards for firewalls and fire protection for living quarters inside of metal buildings? Do the walls need to be 1.5" of sheetrock?

Honestly I do not know. I did not build the building or the living quarters inside. I would suspect type X drywall at the very least.

Most of our houses probably have an attached garage to the living quarters. Same rules apply. One hour fire seperation (5/8" sheetrock?) and a one hour rated door.

If noise is a consideration (of course it is) you could either do 5/8" sheet rock or you could do two layers of 1/2" with 3-1/2" fiberglass insulation between 2X4's to provide noise control. Just isolate the 2X4's from the exterior metal walls. You'd have great thermal efficiency and deep window sills, too.
