Customizable Metal Barndominiums
When you cross a barn with a condominium, you end up with a barndominium, or more casually, barndo. These tiny, yet useful, structures are becoming more and more popular. Why the rise in popularity of these buildings?
What’s a Barndominium?
First, barndominiums are incredibly versatile. Their open designs mean fully-customizable layouts that can be used as a living space, hobby workshop, warehouse, fitness center, garage, home office, mixed use retail/residential building, or storage facility. Instead of having to be mindful of load-bearing walls, a requirement of stick-built homes, metal buildings can be completely tailored to fit a creative vision for the space.

Construction for these buildings is fast and durable. The metal building means the structure will be durable in a variety of weather conditions, including some of the most extreme. In addition to quick construction and impressive durability, metal barndominium buildings are very low maintenance.
If your needs change or expand, you can easily add on to your metal barndominium. The costs and logistics for doing so with this type of structure are less than that of traditional construction, which makes the building a good choice for those who expect business growth.
Metal buildings also tend to be more affordable upfront than traditional, stick-built buildings. They can cost less both upfront and in the long run due to several factors including:
- Lower upfront purchase prices
- Less construction costs
- Lower costs in the long-run thanks to their durability, low maintenance requirements, and the energy-efficient structures.
Financing a Barndominium
What about financing a barndominium? Options like rent-to-own and standard financing are often available to fund the purchase and installation of a barndominium; often, installation and delivery are included in the price.
