When you think of your dream home, you may not be thinking about the nightmare of contacting a general contractor, architect, and all the other workers needed to build your home. Another nightmare to consider — the traditional dream home may be susceptible to fire damage, storms, and other unexpected conditions.
With barndominium kits through US Patriot Steel, you can enjoy home ownership with our cost-effective steel building designs — without the hassle of traditional home construction. We are here to help when you choose to start your home ownership process with our barndominium kit for a durable, beautiful family home.
Benefits of Barndominium Kits
Durability and Resistance
When you build a home with steel framing, you are insulating your family from the many dangers that can hurt wood construction homes. Wildland fires, heavy snow, and other hazards can damage wood construction easily — in the worst conditions, you may lose your family home.
Our steel buildings are constructed with durability and resistance in mind. With metal panels on the exterior of your home, you have protection from the elements and resistance to wildfires. Likewise, a steel frame girding your metal building can help prevent damage from heavy snowfall and falling debris in a serious storm.
Our barndominiums have a sleek metal exterior, but you also have plenty of customization options for your interior living space. That makes them the perfect mix of utility and freedom to design your home how you want it.
You have options for size, shape, color, windows, doors, and more. We can even adjust the floor plan to your preferences, adding or removing interior walls to fit your vision for your home.
Traditional construction methods involve more people and more processes to get your home built. Our metal barndominium kits’ price starts significantly lower than the costs of traditional home construction, potentially saving you thousands. If the floor plan is left unchanged, you can expect to save even more per square foot.
Components of Barndominium Kits
If you are considering building a barndominium, there are a few components you should familiarize yourself with before you install your new home. Understanding these components can help you better understand the structure and its advantages. Below are just a few things you may want to understand before you build:
- Steel Framing: We start with metal framing to maximize durability while keeping your home low maintenance. These sturdy frames save money by reducing future repairs on your barndominium.
- Metal Exterior Panels: Our metal buildings are made with steel paneling and are more resistant to damage, especially if you live in an area with regular wildfires. Your metal barn is engineered for easy assembly, so this siding is cut to fit together with ease and protection.
- Interior Walls: From floor to ceiling, you have plenty of customization options. One of the most important parts of the package is interior finishes. As you imagine your dream barndominium, know you have complete control over your interior walls, including your floor plan. Whether you want a traditional plan, an open-concept living room, or anything else, we are here to help.
Assembly and Construction
When it comes time to construct your steel barndominium, we try to make this process as easy and straightforward as possible. That way, you can even use our DIY barndominium kits to build your dream home.
As you prepare for assembly, you may need additional materials, such as spray foam, which can provide some of the best insulation for steel structures.
As you build your structure, you will also need to consider plumbing, doors, and windows. While our structure and paneling are measured and cut to your specifications, you will still need to consider exactly where these materials will go as you build your home.
Keep in mind as well that your building will also need to meet local building codes. These codes ensure that your home is safe for habitation, and they can cover a range of concerns, from structural integrity to fire safety standards. Because of this, it’s important to check these building codes — whether you choose to build it yourself or hire a team — to ensure that your home is as safe as possible.
You may be certain that a barn dominium is the right path to homeownership for you and your family. But where do you start? And how do you know which barndominium kit is right for your needs?
As you look at our available kits, one of the most important details is pricing. Keep in mind that extensive customization and larger sizes may raise the price. The more square feet your home covers, the more materials and labor will be involved. However, we strive to maintain high quality and affordable costs. Our team is ready to discuss your options with you when you’re ready.
As you consider the price of your barndominium, keep in mind that you may have to hire some general contractors. Plumbers, electricians, and other contractors can provide services to install utilities safely. However, you do have options to DIY many elements of the building process. We’re happy to discuss your options and the services we can help with for your building.
Barndominium Kits FAQs
How customizable are barndominium kits?
While there are certain features needed to keep these structures safe, our building kits are as customizable and flexible as possible. With structural steel to support the building, you can choose to design your home around an open floor plan, something more traditional, or a layout that’s entirely your own. Our team can discuss every detail of your barn before you buy.
What makes barndominiums cost-effective compared to traditional homes?
Conventional construction can be expensive because of the number of contractors and workers needed to build it. You will need carpenters, plumbers, electricians, general contractors, and other professionals to complete your home. With a basic shell for each structure, barndominium builders can do much of this work without as many workers to hire.
How long does it take to assemble a barndominium?
One of the many advantages of a barndominium is the short time it takes to assemble one. With our building kits, you can be in your new home within months. The exact length of time will depend on the sq ft of the building—the larger the structure, the more time it may take to build.
