Ever heard of a barndominium? They’re the new big thing in construction and an excellent option for family homes, community buildings, workshops, storage, and more. Let’s take a look at how a barndominium in Atlanta could be a great decision for your upcoming building project.
What Is a Barndominium?
Also called “barndos,” bardominiums are metal buildings that often look like barns from the outside but can be anything you want them to be on the inside.
Some people who have taken to the idea of barndominiums have converted barns that were actually barns in their “hayday” (pun intended) into homes. But now, many builders and future homeowners are interested in building their barndominiums from the ground up — with the immediate intention of using them as homes or commercial buildings.
Of course, barndominiums can be used as outbuildings or commercial buildings as well. They’ve been used as main buildings for wineries, recreation centers, churches, community centers, and much more.
What Are the Benefits of a Barndominium?
Do a quick Google search of barndominiums and you’ll immediately see their aesthetic appeal. On the outside, they do have the general appearance of a steel barn; however, with unique framing styles, creative paint jobs, added flourishes, special landscaping, and other additions, some barndominiums actually look superior to typical residential homes.
Inside, things get even better. First, barndominiums naturally have high ceilings, giving the feel of a fancy downtown loft — even when the structure is set in the middle of a field! The freshness of open space and expansive appeal is immediate. But don’t think this has to mean you’ll be bunking with your family members without any privacy. Any number of interior rooms can be added to your floorplan, and lofts are also frequently incorporated to provide a sectioned-off space for a bedroom, office, reading nook, or den.
Of course, aside from the aesthetic appeal of barndominium structures, they’re also considerably more economical than standard house builds. They are energy-efficient and eco-friendly, offering top-notch ventilation and a limited need for upkeep and care.
One of our favorite advantages is how versatile barndominiums are. You can use them for absolutely any purpose. Many customers are interested in them as homes for their families, but we’ve also sold our barndominiums for use as new churches, businesses, workshops, warehouses, community centers, and much more.
Why Is Now a Good Time to Build a Barndominium?
There are so many reasons to consider building a barndominium in the Atlanta area. Right now, the real estate market in Georgia is booming. Depending on where you live and where you want to live, this could be a positive or a negative.
For example, if you’re looking to upgrade your living quarters and move into a bigger home or build a brand-new commercial or community building, barndominiums are the answer. Selling your current home or location could bring in a hefty sum right now, but buying new is going to cost you. Instead, consider upgrading and saving money at the same time with a barndominium.
SteelCo’s barndominiums allow you to pick the perfect piece of land and build your dream structure — all for less than it may cost to purchase a brand-new, already-built structure! Without a doubt, if you want to build from scratch, choosing a barndominium is less expensive than choosing a traditional build.
How Do Barndominiums Work?
Our build experts can walk you through the process, but basically, you’ll start by securing a piece of land. Next, you can speak with us about your desired floor plan. We have several options available, each of which can be customized to fit your needs.
