Any reason you went with a wood frame as compared to steel? Seems most barndo's I see are all steel framed and was just curious...

I was just a little more comfortable with the wood and my cost was slightly lower with wood as well. The trusses are steel however, not sure if that shows up in the pics.

What is the estimated finishing price for one of these? I like it a lot.

Between $45 and $50 per square foot will be our finished cost. It’s a little over 1500 square feet finished, and my will not exceed number is $75,000. Raw materials are at at an all time high right now in MS, so we were a little unlucky with our timing.

Build cost on traditional houses are currently $107 to $135 per foot currently in this area.

Default Tongue and Groove

Had all the pines I took from the home pad site made into tongue and groove pine for all my vaulted ceilings. Picked all my kiln dried tongue and groove up Saturday morning. Stashed it under my pole barn for a few days until it is needed.

I agree with this and Love the stain. Will have to show the wife.

Can you get a picture of the whole floor that is stained? We are debating back and forth now on stain or epoxy

May have just gotten another great deal for this project. 3 year old Kenmore stainless side by side fridge new cost of over $1000. $300 cash and went and helped said friend pick up his new fridge. Unit looks like new!

Was going to do black appliances, but this bargain is switching my plans to stainless.

I couldn't tell the purpose of the nook on the rear of the house. I did not see a door on that wall, what are your plans for that area?

Looks really good though, great work!

Exterior rear area that is covered? If so the roof line was kinda there, so I just added a rear shop that I can keep an ATV under and store kayaks and such. I ran the ceiling up high so I could put a window in my daughters lofted bedroom.

Default Barn Wood use

Worked on my boys bedroom this weekend. I used the stack of roughcut pine that I got for free to make a rustic wainscoting for my boys bedroom. This is it after sanding and a coat of satin poly-acrylic. I stapled tar paper up behind it to seal everything off and provide a black uniform background if any cracks are present.

Put two little window units in (8000 btu each), and believe it or not they will dang near cool the place. My insulation is doing it's job, and I cannot even image what it will be like when I get the two other (2 ton & 1 ton) mini-splits installed.

Default Ceilings going in

Tongue and Groove pine from trees located where the barndo is now are going in as we speak. Some "blue staining" due to laying on the ground before milling, and some bug marks as usual for MS trees. I am thrilled with the look, and plan to just put a satin clear acrylic over it for protection.

Pex system is in, and this is a pretty cool feature. I guess all new constructions do this now, but it is nice that you can cut water to one single portion of the house.

Default Updates for this week

Folks I have gotten a few afternoons to work and have been staying at the place so I can work till 10:30 or so each night, here are a few updates:

1) Got the bathroom faucets in
2) Mini-splits installed (I can't believe how well these units cool, and are so quite
3) built upstairs closet doors, as they were an odd size and would require me to cut a regular door way down
4)Got the metal trusses all boxed in
5)Base boards are going down about 75% complete
6) granite guys showed up to install the remnant I purchased and under-mount my sinks

I will have 52,000 btu's of air conditioning capacity or 4.3 tons. I am guessing this A/C package will freeze us out of this place, combined with the R23 insulation system. In Mississippi heating concerns are much much much less than cooling, but it should be more than adequate.
Just curious why you chose the MRCOOL. I will be renovating a house soon and it will need a new a/c system. I'm definitely considering the mini splits but there are a lot of them out there to choose from. Was MRCOOL recommended to you or did you research it yourself? How easy was the install? Thanks.

Mr Cool was Lowe’s brand and I got like a 19% discount from Lowe’s through Pro Services. They were the cheapest units I could find with good ratings and reviews.
