You’ve heard of Man Caves, and you’ve heard of She Sheds, but have you heard of barndominiums? They’re barn homes, essentially, and they’re the latest trend in custom buildings. Could they be your next dream home?
Barndominiums are a perfect mix of living quarters and a place for fun – all within an affordable, low maintenance, energy efficient metal building. Popular in rural settings, out on the ranch, or just for those looking to build something more flexible, these low cost metal buildings can be designed to incorporate a home with a workshop, large garage, barn, horse stalls, airplane hangar, and more. Best of all, they’re the perfect structure to design with one of Worldwide Steel’s steel building kits.
Cost Savings over Conventional Construction
You could buy a pre-built barndominium, sure. But why would you want to? A DIY version, especially when it comes from Worldwide Steel, can be built at a lower average cost, with far more customization, and will outperform a traditional home over the years.
Worldwide Steel barndominiums can be designed however you’d like, with open concept living space that can be finished to your exact specifications. That means you can truly design the building of your dreams, and at a reduced average cost compared to traditional home construction.
But the benefits don’t stop at build-out. In fact, they really start after you move in. Here are just a few:
- Steel barndominiums can be more energy efficient than conventional wood construction
- Steel exteriors have less maintenance cost and upkeep over the life of the building
- The increased durability of our buildings means the potential for better insurance rates
- Steel is easier to repair than wood, resulting in reduced lifetime repair costs
Everything You Need Delivered in a Kit
Worldwide has designed their metal barndominium kits to be DIY friendly. Don’t think you’re barndominium builders? We make it easy! Each barndominium kit comes with a simple assembly manual, and we have expert staff on hand to answer any questions that come up during the building process.
The standard steel frame kit includes everything you need to build your steel home. Err … barn. That means all main framing, secondary framing (for all steel), exterior sheeting, trim, closures, fasteners and stamped building plans. These packages can be added to with second floors, overhangs, wrap around porches, etc., or reduced if you want to do your own exterior material of a different roofing material. Put them all together and voila! You’re homeowners of your very own barndominium.
Lots of Options
Our barndominium kits are designed with flexible, custom floor plans that incorporate residential living quarters and recreation. They’re designed to be DIY, but we don’t leave you alone when it comes to barndominium plans. Our experts walk you through everything you need to know when it comes to these low maintenance metal building homes, from how many sq ft you need to where the countertops should be installed.
Your barndominium can be designed to just about any specification and assembled anywhere you want. With similar interior finishing to traditional construction, with the exception of having no interior structural walls (yay for extra square footage), our Barndominium building kits can be customized to incorporate energy efficient windows, garage and overhead doors, custom interior and exterior finishes, second levels, overhangs, and more.
Supported by clearspan framing, and built with the same high quality materials like all of our other metal buildings, our barndominiums allow you the option to completely customize the interior floor plan of the home. With no load bearing walls within the floor plan, you’re free to design room layouts and living quarters any way you want. With a virtual blank canvas, the possibilities of incorporating living and play under one roof are almost endless.
Designed to withstand the elements of where you live, the designers and engineers at Worldwide Steel Buildings can help you create the barndominium you’ve always wanted, but never knew you could actually have.
