Do you live in the Houston or New Caney, Texas area? Armstrong Insurance has coverage for you that may not be available elsewhere! Are you playing around with the idea of building a pole barn home, or converting a barn/pole shed into a house? You are one of many, and you will have countless options available to you as you dream up your new living quarters.
One of the many positive things about barndominiums is their affordable construction. Typically, they begin with a pole style building, and have metal roofs and siding. This, in itself, saves much in building costs and time, leaving you with more in your budget to make your home extra spacious, well insulated, and more beautiful. Along with all that extra space, you can plan to have your business right there, connected to your living quarters. You may be able to store your camper, machinery, collectors car, or anything else that usually takes up extra money for storage space. You can even have an attached stable for your horse!
Often, besides the affordable construction, you will find savings in your maintenance costs, efficiency, and sometimes even in your home insurance. When a home has metal construction rather than traditional wood construction, it cuts back on fire hazards. The metal construction keeps the maintenance costs down, and the pole shed design makes it easy to construct thick, well insulated walls.
What about insurance coverage?
But... will you be able to find the right insurance coverage for your new home? This is an important question to find the answer to ahead of time. Did you realize some insurance companies will not cover homes that are not built in the traditional, stick built style? They may not have a policy to cover you if your home is converted from a barn, or other building that was not designed to be a house. Also, many folks who plan a barndominium do so because they want to use the extra space for their business, machinery, and even livestock. These factors can make a big difference in how your insurance provider decides on whether or not they will be able to write up a policy for you.
