A barndominium is a combination of “barn” and “condominium” and refers to a post frame building that has been converted into a residence. Offering a style that’s incredibly unique compared to most traditional homes, the barndominium is now gaining traction among many homeowners. But does its unconventional design allow for efficient heating or cooling, or will it be too expensive?
Brownstone Post Frames answers this essential question here.
They Are Actually Easy to Cool and Heat
You might have some initial issues if you’re converting an existing barn into a home. However, most barndominiums today are new construction, which means they can be customized for optimal energy efficiency from the ground up. Take into account the building’s plumbing system, insulation, ventilation and daylighting. By equipping your barndominium with advanced, energy-saving features, you can ensure your new living space can deliver excellent thermal comfort while keeping monthly bills to a minimum.
What to Consider for Maximized Energy Efficiency
When having a barndominium or residential pole barn built, make sure to work only with a trusted company for the job, like Brownstone Post Frames.
