Jeanette’s words of wisdom for anyone looking to build,

“Don’t ? Just kidding! If I can say anything at all it would be research! Research ! Research! Don’t get hung up on the misconceptions of these homes or get your dreams squashed by the naysayers. Dive in to as much info as you can to help you decide if a Barndo is the right home for you ! In the end it is your home and your are the one who had to be happy in it!”
