Barndominiums: Country Home Trend
Barndominiums are part of a recent housing trend that is touted for being customizable, low-maintenance, and energy efficient in comparison to traditionally built houses, without sacrificing any creature comforts. So what are barndominiums, and are they deserving of all the hype?

Barndominiums, or barndos for short (also called barn homes or metal homes), are sheet metal or steel framed residential buildings. Unlike barns intended for livestock or storage, barndominiums make lovely homes with several advantages over traditional homes.
Customization
Many of the perks about the barndo are related to its customizability. When building a barndo, the buyer can personalize almost any aspect about it, including ceiling height and style, color of the walls, roof and trim, and the floor plan. This gives the buyer the ultimate decision in what to do with their space. Want an open plan, spacious home? Or a home that functions half as a work or storage space, and the other half for living? Or an area large enough for a community gathering? Is this a house the family is going to live in year round, or is it an affordable vacation home out on the ranch? All of these options are possible with the barndo.
Affordability
Additionally, the owner can choose the features that go into their home, making the home energy-efficient and economical, with options such as spray foam insulation and energy-efficient windows. These features bring down the utility costs of a barndo in comparison to a conventional home.

Low Maintenance
Barndos are known for being durable, low-maintenance homes. Because of their metal walls, they are resistant to wind, moisture, fire, and pests. Their foundations are typically engineered concrete slab, which is less likely to crack over time.
