Kathy and Bob Stoltzfus - Metal "Barndominiums" cost less and are faster to build, have virtually no external maintenance requirements and generally have lower insurance and taxes. Many owners also report much lower utilities. Perfect Retirement Home Option! Many families have discovered the practical benefits of living in a metal building-turned-house. Outside, it looks like a barn or shed; inside, there is a portion finished out as a living space.
This is a Texas Barndominium, yes really! Built by W.D Metal Buildings of Pleasanton, Tx. Worth checking out. Love the interior and exterior architectural elements of this structure and it very practical application to a lower cost home design.
