How Long Does it Take to Build a Barndominium?

Your barndominium construction can be as custom as you want, but you get more for the dollar and can get it done faster than the traditional custom home. How long it takes to build your structure depends on who is doing the construction. Some builders can complete a barndominium project in just six months.

Construction of your barndominium involves several steps:

Find a Floor Plan for Your Barndominium

Once you have decided on a basic approach, move on to finding a floor plan that works for you and your lifestyle. House plans for barndominiums are country home designs strongly influenced by barn styling, however, barndominium designs have an open concept floor plan, a gambrel roof, barn doors, and the rustic aesthetic and feel of a repurposed pole barn for living space requirements. You can buy an already completed plan, commission one, or even come up with your own. 

Keep in mind the complexity of your design will have an impact on the total cost and the impact on the length of time it takes to build your barndominium
