Good morning guys,this is my second post and reason for joining this fantastic group. As you can see in title it says Barndominim but I don't know if that is what my project should be called. So let me first give my plan or intent and little history. First I am a DIY'er,I have built my house that I live in now and my garage.It was a learning process VIA mistakes. I just about did it all,from elec to drywall to building my cabinets. Well that was 35yrs ago which I am now 66 and wanting to get myself setup for retirement. Which will be in East Tx by Toledo Bend area on a small lot( No deed restrictions,no HOA,no inspections). So I been tossing the ideal of building a wood frame house about 1000-1200 sq ft. then a shop for my play time. I am a one man show so all this be done mostly myself to help keep cost down. My other options is a metal bldg which is what I am leaning towards,which it built on slab. I do have a quote and its in my budget as a shell I guess call it. I will be finishing the inside myself just like any other house but nothing fancy,two bedrms and one bath to keep cost down and hope also keep taxes down and the back half of the building will be my shop space. I don't know if something like this is qualified to be called a Barndominium or not. So with my game plan kinda laid out here, I will be asking for info on what to do and not to do.Framing inside a metal bldg is new to me so this is area where I am uncomfortable.Any websites,or Youtubes,links or maybe link to other members post would be big help.This is just beginning guys,in planning stages right now getting land in couple weeks.
