A Texas barndominium is a metal structure that contains living quarters. It is becoming an increasingly popular style of residence in Texas due to its affordable cost, low maintenance requirement and energy efficiency.
Barndominiums can incorporate many innovative features, including vaulted ceilings, custom floor plans and premium materials. Barndominiums can be multipurpose buildings that function as shops, offices, garages or entertainment rooms. Barndominiums can cost up to 50 percent less than traditional homes. As of July 2015, pricing for shell-only structures starts at $35 per square foot, and move-in ready homes start at $65 per square foot, as quoted by Tri-County Builders.
