Interested in Barndominiums?
Barndominiums are often metal building homes
We provide barndominum floor plans, barn house plans and are here to help you understand the building process, including tips for the slab, barn, shop and living quarters. This site will help you whether you are going to pay a company for the entire build or be your own General Contractor or DIY the barndominium yourself.
With Barndominiums you get more for your money!
- Energy Efficient
- Low Maintenance (for the metal barn homes)
There are lots of things to consider and things to learn that do not apply to conventional home building. There are also many options to consider before beginning. (You might want a hookup for that future RV you will park in your shop).
Barndominiums can be as custom as any custom home but you get more for your dollar, and with a much faster construction time. How long does it take to build a barndominium? We know builders who complete the project in 6 months so check with your local builder and talk to their previous customers.
The construction time for a barndominium is often much quicker because the metal barn portion of the home can be complete in a week or two. This creates a dry space for the framers to do the build-out of your living area.
The barndominium building process consists of three major areas:
- Slab (Concrete Foundation)
- Metal Building construction
- Living Area build out
You will want to plan ahead and include plumbing in the shop area before pouring the slab for things like an RV hook up for that future motorhome. How about a 50 Amp electrical plug for a welder? Your climate will determine where you place your water tank and how deep you need to have your water lines.
