As a custom home company, our customers are always in the driver’s seat -- if there’s something they want in their 100% customized home, chances are we can do it.
The lifeblood of Barden Building Products is our network of Barden Independent Dealers. Working alongside us, we’ve helped many families realize their dreams of a new custom home.
We'd like to give special recognition to our friends at Oehler Homes. Based in Hamburg, N.Y., this company was our 2019 Independent Dealer of the Year. We couldn’t be happier to honor them and are proud to continue working with them.
Last year, customers built a wide range of our floor plans through our Barden Independent Dealers. We were happy to help so many future homeowners realize their dreams of constructing new customized homes in 2019.
While each of our floor plans meets different needs -- and are fully customizable -- there are a few we love but aren’t often selected. We’ve gathered 3 of our favorites that we’re hoping to see more of in 2020.

We’ve compiled some of the most common “traps” we see homeowners fall into when planning their project, in the hopes of aiding in keeping your project process smooth and efficient.
When it comes to designing a custom home, it can be easy to get caught up in the fun details: picking out the floor plan you like, furnishing the inside, mastering the landscaping.
But it’s even more important to put ample time, energy, and thought into structural elements of your home, such as house sheathing options, that are not only more functional for your home -- but impossible to change later.
Make sure not to gloss quickly over the house sheathing options that are presented to you, and think carefully about what is best for your build. We’ve outlined the key considerations here to keep in mind when selecting the ideal exterior sheathing.
