Can-I-expand-my-structure-easily-if-need-be

Basically this boils down to the original design of the building.
If you wish to increase the length of the building, it should have been designed from the start with an expandable end wall. This would place a fully loaded frame at the end of the building and allow future length expansion, and maintaining a clear span interior.
If you want to expand the length without having an expandable end wall on your existing building, the end wall must remain in place including all columns. You will loose the clear span capability at this wall location.
If you wish to expand in width, again if this was designed for at the start this is simple.
If not previously designed for, the building cannot support the additional weight of a lean to off of the walls. These would have to be designed as stand alone buildings connecting to the existing building with sheeting and trim to make the finished product look like one building.
