Default Moseley Shiner Barndo

Kendra and I are a life crossroads, as is my sister Shari. Shari lost her husband last fall and is restarting her life. Kendra and I are 54 and looking at retirement in 6-8 years (hopefully). With my Canada second tour cut short prematurely due to Covid, I have returned to Sugar Land.

Having planned to be gone longer, we had moved too deep into the sell of our Fort Bend residence. Even with the return it was best thing to do, as it's too much of a home for just the two of us with the kids all grown and moving on. Closed on Monday and settled into Condo life here in Sugar Land (Sugar Land Town Square living). Kendra and I plan on renting here on out until retirement. Shari is restarted in Austin in the townhome she and Keith had bought and renovated. We have jointly decided to add more square footage to the family farm (we have 5 kids between us) as our primary gathering spot.

Barndo plans are locked and we are in the final stages of negotiations with a builder (working through some warranty issues). Lot's of porches and a garage/shop with utility room.

Looking forward to breaking ground this fall!

Awesome! Curious about one part of the design. Looking at the elevation drawings, it looks like you will have two garage doors. One of them is off the covered porch. What is the reason for it opening to the porch instead of off the right side?

Dry in/out is my thinking. The back of shop will serve two purposes
1) Utility Room
2) Man Cave

This allows me to enter and exit via cover and tend to gas grill and smokers directly off man cave without having to go off covered room. 8 foot door in back, big enough to pull out a mower, but not as big as 12 footer on other end, which is where boat will go in/out.

Pops did something similar with his shop and I liked the functionality of it.

I was seriously looking at this when we moved back to the Central TX area. right now, I am **** glad I did not go this route considering I am 67, fat and out of shape and the humidity is taking it's toll on me. I told my wife once the metal part is up, I could do the interior construction and get someone to do the plumbing and electrical and I could finish it out. Fortunately, we found our forever home between Temple and Rogers and could not be happier except for the lack of rain and 6.46 acres to take care of.

Looking forward to your reports and pics if you decide to go the barndo route Good Luck!

Ya know, I am getting up there in advanced age. Have I told you that I love you and Kendra like a son and daughter-in-law? Before you get too far along with your plans, ya might consider an extra bedroom, down the hall, in case I outlive my wonderful, loving wife. I mean, who would take care of me if she goes first? As our mutual friend, Harry Reed, would say, "Oh, thanks"!

Well we have hit a COVID wall it seems. Main subcontractor (Building and slab) won't commit to start or verifying form pricing at this time. We have our prime explorer secondary options.

Anyone else seeing this?

Apparently material prices (framing) are insane right now.

Man I havenít heard about it here . Seems like everyone is starving for a build . Material price might be the hold up . I know a few people that the quotes were almost doubled from what the original bid was . One friend 160k ended up about 220k due to material cost .

And so it begins!

After a very long journey we broke ground yesterday !

Neither my sister, nor I could get away , so my lovely bride drove to Shiner to be present for the shovel in the ground pic with our prime contractor (dad / daughter team) and their first subcontractor (dirt).

Ole Mount Olive is our address...have to provide the largest city to provide clarity!

In all seriousness, Sweet Home represents the home address of the builder and cabin maker.
