Barndominiums, charmingly dubbed “barndos,” are contemporary dwellings that combine the allure of barn-style living with modern adaptability. These unique homes are shrouded in ambiguity, with their definition being as varied as the preferences of those who treasure them. While some envision barndominiums as converted barns with cozy living spaces, others see them as prefabricated steel-framed or wood-framed structures that arrive ready-made on the job site. No matter what your definition of a barndominium may be, one thing is clear: these buildings offer endless possibilities for your space, and plenty more benefits for you and your loved ones.
Learn more about what we offer in the way of barndominiums and why our offering surpasses any other pole barn or steel-framed alternative on the market.

Our Barndominium Building Methods
At DC Structures, we’ve combined traditional stick framing methods, clear-span construction, and fiber cement supplements to develop a first-of-its-kind barndominium kit. Unlike standard pole barn barndominiums, which rely on pressure-treated posts embedded directly in the ground, our Meridian Barndominium Kit utilizes premium wood posts built on sturdy concrete footers to support its durable frame.
This method makes for a much stronger, longer-lasting structure than traditional pole barns, considering your posts are far less susceptible to rot, moisture damage, and cracking. Additionally, our use of pre-manufactured vaulted wood trusses allows us to create a wide-open interior with all materials concealed and no interior load points, so you can do anything you wish with your design and configuration.
