Default Barndo versus Stick Built

Is there really a cost advantage anymore? What are the pros/cons?

Canít give pros or cons, but about 6 months ago barndo was about $10 less a square foot.

I’m bidding one out right now for land I just bought- traditional bids have been coming back a good bit cheaper than the metal.

Pm me if you want more detailed info on what I’ve seen so far....

The savings come if you DIY. I’m fixing to start the process of building a barndo, and I will do everything myself except the erection of the building, AC, cabinets and countertops.

I think where the Barndo wins is you can write some of it off if you have a shop or something under the same roof for farm use .I would check with your tax person

Price wise no, but you have more interior options since there is basically no load bearing walls unless you build a second floor.

In living square footage area. No.
If you incorporate the “shop area”. Then yes. It brings your average down.

Pm me if you have any specific questions. It’s what I do for a living. I can direct you to our Facebook page and you can see some of our work.

Little savings on building portion. Biggest saving comes at property tax time.

If you ever wanted to sell it seems like a barndo would appreciate less and you would end up with less equity than a stick built. With that being said we plan on going the barndo way when I retire on our family farm.

10% vs 20% down was my deciding factor on building a barndo. Hard to choke up %20 down when your building a home in the mid 3's.

Curious why you ran into this- my construction loan for land and build is 10% with type of build being no factor at all.

Not sure to be honest. Might have been the bank I went through. I talked to 2 different ones and they were both the same. 20% down on barndo and 10% on stick.

I’ve been curious about this as well. I’m ready to start dirt work and I can’t decide between the metal with the shop incorporated or the traditional. The metal would be an 80x100 with side walls high enough to have a large loft/man room upstairs. It would be cut in half for living and shop area. It would be nice to finally have a definite direction to move on with.

Its horrible to say the least. We are trying just a slow go. Ain't nothing like paying on something that you dont even have if you know what I mean.

My deciding factor is probably going to end up being two things, first and foremost I decided I wanted a detached shop so that when me and the boys are working (and when weíre hitting or Iím doing baseball lessons, mines basically a mini indoor facility) momma can sleep and not be kept up. The other big factor is that even if I do metal Iíll have to cover 80% in stone, brick or hardy due to restrictions. So weíll probably end up more or less doing a hybrid. Stone on front and sides with no metal behind, metal roof and 4 ft of stone in back with metal to the roof.

Iím being led to believe that the only additional cost of detaching the shop is one wall- Iím sure that may not be entirely true but the slab cost is no different. Which then meant build whatever we could more economically build that we would be happy with.

Looking to have a pole barn built down near Dilley. Anybody build down that way ? If interested would be willing to barter deer hunts towards cost of building.

They are the same cost in our area, however the cost of ownership (utilities, property taxes) are cheaper on the barndo than a stick built
