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.
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.
Panel building, or panelized home construction, can seem like a complicated method to those who are unfamiliar with it.
But the truth is, when compared to modular or stick building, there are many aspects of the process where panelized construction simplifies the process for the homeowner.
If this article is the first place you’re hearing about panel building, it might be helpful to visit some of our past blogs where we explain the concept in detail:

If you feel comfortable with your understanding of the basis of panelized building, let’s hop into the areas where it helps to simplify necessary build processes.
Our team has been working with people looking to build their custom dream home for 70 years. In that time, we’ve become familiar with the thought process of many homeowners before, during, and after their build.
Oftentimes, we see homeowners get hung up on some of the more unimportant aspects of building -- and these small details set the project back and incur additional expenses unnecessarily.
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.
Most people only build a custom home once in their lives. Because of this, unfortunately some prospective homeowners are blinded by unexpected costs that they failed to budget for before building begins.
We put together this guide to help homeowners expect the unexpected, and account for every aspect of home building that might arise.
Now that you’ve made the decision to build a new custom home, you’re probably wondering what the next steps look like if you choose to go the route of panelized home construction.
Or maybe you’re deciding between a couple different methods, and haven’t settled on the perfect one for you. The panelized building process is unique to other methods, specifically when looking at it compared to the traditional stick building process.
We put together this guide so you could take a look at what each phase of the process looks like, from the first step you take to the day you move into your new home.
Though panel building’s origins are old, panel built homes are anything but dated. At Barden Building Products, we’ve been manufacturing panel built homes since the 1940s.
In the past 70 years we have seen many trends, technologies, and techniques come and go in the home building industry.
What we’re left with in 2019 is a unique combination of a polished manufacturing process that has stood the test of time and modern software, design trends, and materials to make the best new build homes.
