Simply put, a barndominum is a metal shell frame, that is usually made of steel. The concept started on farms when owners would add living quarters onto an existing barn. A customizable mix between a barn and a home, barndominiums are versatile and are the latest trend among new home buyers looking for an affordable way to get everything they want out of a home. While the steel frame and shell may not sound like it would make a great home, they can be completely customized, inside and out, to create the perfect space to live, work, or play. ST Construction can take your concept, or help you create a concept and create the perfect barndominium in North Carolina. We have two office locations to best reach any part of North Carolina from the mountains to the coast.
There are a number of reasons that barndominiums make sense to build as opposed to a traditional home. For starters, barndominiums can be designed & built much faster than a traditional home, going up in weeks, as opposed to months. This translates to a cost savings since you are spending less on labor and construction costs. Since there are no load bearing walls, you have a completely open floor plan to work within, so that you can have a completely customized design that perfectly suits your needs. Not only do you save money on construction and labor costs, but barndominums have fewer maintenance costs, can be made more energy efficient, and are durable enough to withstand powerful storms. Barndominiums are a great way to quickly build the home of your dreams and have the peace of mind to know that it will last you for years.
