Barndominiums are a recent blend of the words barn and condominium. Many outside of Texas may not even recognize the phrase. The name refers to a non-traditional structure, with a steel frame and sheet metal siding, originally designed as a storage building or barn that has been repurposed by the addition of living areas to the existing open space. But is also may include wood-framed structures with terms such as barn home.
When it comes to planning for a Barndominium construction project, there are a lot of things to consider so that it will become a building where everybody will feel comfortable and welcome to how you want to use the space. Turnkey is a local general contractor that specializes in this specific type of construction project.

The large exposed truss and the stone on the front add to the aesthetics of this build, which helps showcase that Barndominiums aren’t just “plain commercial rectangles”.
Also, we added the carport on the side of the large covered porch for parking and protected access to the home.
This picture shows the spacious view from inside the home.
