Barns as we know them have evolved from their original purpose as storage for ranchers, agricultural products, and livestock. Nowadays, some of them have been repurposed as “barndominiums.” These are sophisticated living spaces for people looking for a home with a shop attached.
In today’s post, your expert in metal carports kits, Metal Warehouse Inc., clears up some common misconceptions about barndominiums.
Barndominiums Are Boxy and Industrial Looking
While it may be true that some barns resemble a simple storage facility made out of metal, barndominiums are a whole new thing altogether. One simple image search can show you that barndominiums don’t have to look bland or rustic. Simply adjusting the roof pitch and porch can make a huge difference in your barndominium’s exterior and aesthetics.
This stigma may be born from the origins of barndominiums, which are bars. Some people may think that they’re only limited to having their barndominiums resembling a barn, when this is not the case. Normally, barns are made out of wood such as chestnut, pine timber, or hickory. However, you can let your imagination run wild as there are no limitations in creating a barndominium. Basically, they’re custom homes on a larger scale since you have a shop attached to it. You can create steel buildings, or even build it like a conventional home, with various materials and finishes. It all boils down to your needs and preferences.
Building a Barndominium Is Expensive
Another common misconception is that building a barndominium is expensive. Building one is still considered affordable and only gets costlier depending on your needs. The cost of building one is anchored on the materials you are getting, the style you’re going for, the scale of the project, and of course your budget.
