What is a Barndominium or "Barndo"

One of our specialty trades at  DM Roofing Siding & Windows‘  includes the construction of barndominiums and barndos. If you’re in the market for a new home or a secondary space, now is the perfect time to consider opting for a barndominium or barndo. A barndominium, as the term suggests, is essentially a barn transformed into a comfortable living space. These structures are gaining rapid popularity across the US Midwest, particularly in Ohio, for their distinctive aesthetic appeal and cost-efficiency.

When Was The Barndominium Invented?

The concept for a barndominium has been around for a very long time. Many Amish and mennonite communities have built attached living quarters and barns for hundreds of years across Ohio. The term barndominum however didn’t appear to describe these hybrid living spaces until the late 1980’s, early 1990’s and largely took off in equestrian circles.

Today, barndominiums have become a common and practical way to create additional space and living quarters for not just housing livestock but, hobbies, offices, rental properties, and much much more.

Why Are Barndominiums Being Built?

Initially gaining traction in Western states such as Texas and Wyoming, barndominiums are now becoming increasingly popular in the Midwest, like Ohio, as a budget-friendly alternative amidst the soaring costs of traditional homebuilding materials. These versatile structures offer a unique solution for homeowners seeking expansive open spaces for various activities. Ideal for home auto workshops, crafting and hobby spaces for activities like sandblasting and welding, or simply as storage for campers, RVs, and tools, their straightforward steel construction allows for easy customization to meet the specific needs of individuals or homeowners.

How Long Does It Take to Build a Barndominium in Ohio?

Construction time can vary greatly depending on your needs. Barndominium construction occurs in four stages: clearing and site work,   foundation pouring,  framing, and the interior living build-out. Many contractors will only handle the first 3 leaving the homeowner with a well insulated yet empty interior. DM Roofing Siding & Windows specializes in custom builds and can help you tailor the inside to your particular needs.

How Much Does a Barndominium Cost in Ohio

Costs can vary depending on the size and scope of your project but typically can range anywhere from 30-50% cheaper on a per square foot basis than a traditional home depending on your unique needs. Our expert team can help put together an estimate to include any specific customizations or amenities you might need!
