The Year of the #BarndominiumImage title


       The traditional way to build homes is slowly becoming inefficient. Taking a look at modular homes, it simply makes more sense to prefabricate a home in the shop and move it to the site. This will allow the home to be built faster and more efficiently while also being much cheaper in the process. And, this goes well beyond the normal modular home you’ll see. In 2016, we predicted that the #Barndominium will be one of the hottest ways to own a new home.  In hindsight, we were spot on.  Now in 2017, we are sure you have heard about this style of home.


     What is a #Barndominium? In simple terms, these are metal buildings that have an inside living quarter. These are very affordable, energy-efficient and low maintenance homes. You’ll find that many of these models feature:

  • Energy-efficient windows

  • Stained concrete floors

  • Engineered concrete slabs

  • Spray foam insulation

  • Plumbing

  • 9 feet ceilings


     Think of a warehouse that has a beautiful front porch and a little masonry in the front of the building. A warehouse on the outside is normally boring and plain, but as houses, these are very affordable to make. This is the same concept, but when you own a #Barndominium, you’ll be able to enjoy a beautiful, low cost home that has had the exterior upgraded greatly from what a warehouse would look like.

     A #Barndominium can be a full-fledged home that has several rooms and bathrooms included. But, you may also choose to have an open floor layout or use your new living space for a variety of different functions. Virtually anything you can think of that you would want in a traditionally built home will be available within a #Barndominium.If you’re on the market for a new home or want something a little different, the #Barndominium is a great choice. It is predicted that many people will move away from traditionally built homes in the future, and we believe that 2016 will be the year of the #Barndominium especially in areas where housing prices are skyrocketing once again.
