What is a Michigan Barndominium?
A Michigan Barndominium is a rustic, open concept known to originate in Texas by horsemen who were tired of going out in the weather to check on their animals. It is a house and a horse barn/shop connected to each other. Through the years the concept incorporated large shops and office spaces when a typical garage would not do. Todays Barndominium has become known as custom homes with large, open floor plans using any esthetics to achieve the desired look. The options are endless
Michigan Barndominium builders are more familiar with rustic materials than the conventional home builder. Wide open vaulted ceilings filled with tongue and groove walls and custom beams are our specialty.
Foundations– A Michigan Barndominium’s foundation is the same as any other custom house in the southeast with footers lining all load bearing walls. Barndominiums can be a slab, crawl space, or a basement foundation.
Framing Components– A Michigan Barndominium can be framed a variety of ways depending on the end result desired. Conventional 2×4 or 2×6 studs 16” OC with 3/8 plywood is typical but red iron framing with wood or metal stud built out is used when high ceilings and large roof spans are desired.
Michigan Barndominum Roofing Materials– Any roofing material can be used on a Barndominium. Architectural 30 year shingles, 29 gauge painted metal, slate tiles, clay tiles, or wood shingles can be used.
Michigan Barndominium Exterior Options– Any exterior option can be used to achieve the desired look on a Barndominium. The most common options are painted metal, Stone, Brick, hardie siding, vinyl siding, and board and batten cedar. The desired look and maintenance are the deciding factors.
Michigan Barndominiums Insulation Options– While standard insulation can be used, all Countrywide Barndominiums come standard with spray foam insulation. Spray foam offers unmatched energy efficiency and a home that can resist extreme seasonal temperatures without high electric bills.
Michigan Barndominium Interior walls– The materials used to cover the interior walls of a Barndominium will ultimately be the deciding factor for the feel of the home. Painted drywall can be used with a variety of textures and is common in typical homes. CWB also offers a 1×12 Tongue and groove pine that gives the barndominium a warm cabin feel. Accent walls can be covered with stone, tile, laminate, and much more.
