Equal parts fashionable and functional, barndominiums can combine the curb appeal of a home with the affordability and durability of a steel building. Offering the “best of both worlds,” so to speak, barndominiums typically feature residential quarters alongside:

  • Workshops
  • Auto Shops
  • Garages and Equipment Storage
  • Aircraft Hangars
  • Office Spaces
  • Equestrian Buildings
  • Art Studios and Exercise Spaces
  • Vacation Rentals and Getaways
  • Barns
  • Carports, RV and Boat Storage

The possibilities as far as what you can do with your barndominium are virtually limitless, but these sustainable, economical buildings offer numerous benefits for buyers, among them:


Pre-engineered barndomimiums arrive at your build site in clearly marked, easy-to-assemble packages, which shortens construction time and lowers labor and erection costs substantially when compared with traditional wood construction.

Ease of Maintenance

Steel barndominiums also offer low long-term care and maintenance costs when compared with wood homes, which typically require repainting, residing and other maintenance every so often to maintain their functionality and appeal.

Supreme Durability

Unlike wood construction, steel is inherently fire-resistant, and it also won’t rot or suffer damage caused by pests or other potential construction hazards. You can also easily customize yours to comply with local building code requirements.

Ample Customization Options 

Your prefabricated barndominium is essentially a blank canvas, meaning you can customize it to your liking using features such as windows, skylights, insulation packages, mezzanines, overhangs, heated floors and more.

If you’re looking to shorten your commute, maximize your workable hours or simply have a designated space connected to your home where you can work, store goods or recreate, a barndominium just may fit the bill.
