Anybody here with an on-going barndominium project? What challenges have you faced so far, if any, and what did you do to fix them?

Those ugly expansion (err… contraction) joints cut into the polished concrete slab.

Fix: we will eventually… stuff with 1/8" foam bead and top with epoxy. Time consuming but hides the joint.

Honestly, sourcing the right contractors was the biggest challenge. There was a lot we could do ourselves but when the time came to hire experts, it was tough to find people who could deliver. We solved this by doing A LOT of research and reading of reviews and asking around to see who other people have worked with.

I’ve been trying to focus on the positive - everything that’s going right.
If you add up enough of those, you’ve got yourself a Barndo!
