Finding & Securing Land

Before your consultation you should at the very least have land under contract. This helps us when determining your needs while designing and quoting out your new home.

Determine Your Home Size

In order  for us to accurately quote you or start the process, it is important to have a general idea of how large you are wanting your home to be. You should also decide how much is living space.

Architectural Drawings

While this isn’t required for your first consultation, before we can provide you with a final estimate, it is important to have architectural drawings for your home. This allows us to ensure nothing is missed on our behalf.

Basic Steps of The Barndominium Process

Zoning & Planning

Make sure your property is suitable for the type of building and everything is able to be permitted. 

Finding A Lender

Post frame build homes sometimes pose additional challenges when getting a loan.

Sourcing Contractors

Ensure you have all of your required vendors lined up to help avoid any delays in construction.

The Building Process

There are several steps required to build your dream barndominium, but we assure you they’re worth it!
