The term is a combination of two words – Barn and Condominium. The short answer is: A residential home that is built using unconventional residential construction techniques. Many Barndominiums include a workshop or garage – attached or detached.
In the southern part of the United States, Barndominiums are usually steel frame structures… like the commercial metal buildings often used by businesses. These metal structures are converted into a living space.
In other parts of the country, pole barns or engineered wood frame structures are also known as Barndominiums… the same unconventional residential construction techniques but made from wood.
The short name for Barndominiums is Barndo!
We offer the following services:
Our team is inspired by the opportunities Barndominiums present for comfortable, open, real life living, and we have hands on experience in the areas mentioned above.
A set of custom plans is averaging 45-60 days. While in some cases, plans may be completed sooner, this is a good planning window to ensure your plans are drafted, reviewed, revised, and include everything you want.
For prospective clients – we offer a 30 minute, free initial phone consultation. If you retain us to design your plan – phone consults during design are included in that process. Beyond the design process, clients may purchase one of our consulting plans that will provide them support for a portion or all of their build.

We have two options for home tours.
Clients may arrange a tour, by appointment, of the Creek House to gain a full understanding of the various options Barndominiums have to offer.
Clients may arrange a tour of an ongoing project that our staff is consulting on – if the home owner provides permission for such a tour. We are always pleased to show off work we are doing for others as long as we are respectful of their privacy.
