Barndominium House Plan 75171 is designed with “bolt-up” metal building technology. Lumber prices are going through the roof right now. Consumers need alternatives to meet budgets and timelines. Metal house plans are simple to build and cost effective.
Barndominium House Plan – “Bolt-Up” Metal Building Advantages
Barndominium House Plan 75171 accommodates a “bolt-up” metal building technology. “Bolt-up” metal buildings are becoming popular for the following reasons:
Firstly, a “bolt-up” metal building can be manufactured quickly. The entire frame can be manufactured in the shop and delivered to the site. Upon arrival, it’s ready to be stood-up and bolted together. Bolt-ups can be assembled in days. In contrast, “weld-up” buildings could take weeks.
Secondly, consider the time saved on roofing and siding assembly. Exterior roofing and siding also install much faster on metal buildings verses conventional residential construction techniques.
Challenges of “Bolt-Up” Metal House Plan Design
The first challenge is to design a metal house plan with curb appeal. The second challenge is to design a floor plan that will please a modern homeowner.
There are limitations to the configurations you can employ using bolt-up construction. Extensive research was conducted to avoid violating the rules of most manufacturers who provide bolt-up metal buildings. The model followed in this design was Mueller, Inc., but many other manufacturers will be similar.
Some liberties were taken in this Barndominium House Plan. For example, residential windows and doors provide code required egress and preserve the country style aesthetic. These elements will need blocking, flashing, and possibly welded connections.
The interior walls are framed as 2×4 studs. However, they could easily be replaced with metal studs. The front and rear porches are also framed as rough sawn cedar for aesthetics. We recommend that customers consult with their local metal building manufacturer to review plans and assess the feasibility of building this home with their systems.
