The extra space is right at the top of my list.
How much you can customize - especially things like extra shop and garage space - is what really sold me on barndos.
Being able to use the space as we want has been huge for us too.
Exactly! I needed more than just a house to live in.
No load bearing walls anywhere inside the footprint of the house or shop. Lots of open space. Wind load rating so high, we really don’t need a storm shelter.
I forgot about not having to deal with load-bearing walls. I don’t even think our floorplan would have been possible if they were necessary.
