Customers can choose the color of their barn home as well. Red is a great classic colour for a barn home. Did you know that there is a reason behind people painting their barns red? Well, these days it’s to continue the tradition, but in the past, people would add ground up rust powder to the paint which creates a sealant for the exterior of the building. Rust actually has powerful properties that keep mould and rot at bay while also protecting it from insect infestation and damage. Plus, there was no shortage of rust on the farm usually. So even though most exterior paints are just painted and chemically made sealants, they still paint barns and some barn homes red to keep with the classic tradition of red barns. Customers can also choose to leave the wood siding natural and just put a protective coating on it. All of their designs have that classic and traditional farmhouse or barn structure and design as well which gives them even more of that classic barn charm. The interiors of these barn homes are beautiful with high ceilings and plenty of light thanks to the windows they install. The homes can also feature full gourmet kitchens with all of the modern luxuries including dishwashers and induction cooktops. If you are considering building a barn home but want an entirely new build, then this is one of the companies you may want to consider for your home build.
