Barden Building Products Blog Archive
As in past years, 2021 was a busy year for us.
Throughout this past year, we and our Barden Independent Dealers helped plenty of customers build a wide variety of homes. With our catalog of hundreds of fully customizable floor plans to choose from, it’s almost impossible to see the exact same home constructed twice.
While our floor plans are each unique and easily adjusted to meet different needs, there are a few we feel are worthy of a second look as stand-out designs. We’ve gathered our favorite custom home floor plans that we’re hoping to see more of in 2022.
As our Western New York-based company moves into our 111th year of operation, we’ve gotten to work making modernizing floor plans for a few of our classic, custom homes.
While still a work in progress, we’re excited to share a sneak peek of what we’ve come up with.
If you’re on the fence about building with Barden and our network of Independent Dealers, or opting to build the traditional (stick built) way, then this guide is for you.
We’ve put together some of the considerations that Barden home owners express as being the more “hidden” or not immediately apparent aspects of opting for panelized construction.
Whether you’re building the custom home of your dreams for your family or constructing a downsized home to spend the rest of your life in, your house should be a perfect, unique space for your interests, tastes, and lifestyle.
Downsizing a home means something different for everyone.
Whether you’re moving locations to better suit your empty nest, seeking a more accessible home, or looking to build a home that has dedicated spaces for hobbies and interests -- the process of downsizing marks an exciting new chapter.
We’ve put together this guide to help answer questions we hear from people building their downsized dream home and aid in making the process go smoothly.
Unfortunately, it seems as though “accessible home” has become a buzzword in the home building community with many misconceptions surrounding the true meaning of universal design and home accessibility.
To some, accessible home design simply means adding a wheelchair ramp. While this is one facet of universal, accessible design -- there is so much more to uncover. When we fail to account for other facets of accessible building when discussing the concept, we leave out many people who can benefit from universal design.
We aim to get to the heart of home accessibility, what it means, who benefits from it, and how to build it in this article.
