Get Started

Building your dream home can be one the most exciting times of your life.. Here are some steps to help you start making your dream home a reality!!

  • The first step is to determine the budget for your new barndominium. This would be a good time to talk to your bank about pre-approval for a construction loan.
  • Find your floor plan. If you are struggling to find a plan that you like, we can help! We have architects here at 1845 Barndominiums to help you with your design.
  • Set up a meeting with our sales team. This meeting will help us give you a detailed quote for your build. We will discuss the design, location, and finish outs for your dream home.
  • Draw up preliminary plans!! This is an exciting step.. Your dream home is now starting to come together. These drawings will have you ready to secure financing with the bank as well as finalize any changes that need to be made.
  • Once we have made any final adjustments to your plans, we are now ready to sign your contract and start the construction of your DREAM HOME!!!
