    Thanks for all the help everyone! I was going about it all wrong, trying to fit me, some horses, and a school bus, all under one roof!

    I've come to my senses thanks to KigerQueen and horselovinguy. I'm liking those PennyPinchers quite a bit!

    Ponyboy: If I return to serious thinking about a custom build, I'll draw to-scale plans, using Adobe Illustrator. My one building from scratch went smoothly, but it was as simple as punching some things into the garage builder at Menards and a few days later a flatbed showed up with all the materials....I just had to piece them together like real-life Legos, using adult tools.



    Staring at it, the only conclusion was, "there's no way I can make that happen with my budget ($100k-ish)." So, it was either the bus has to go, or I have to wait another year or two.

    These kits look promising; time to keep digging. And thanks again for the insight.

    (Does anyone else have a hard time understanding the audio thing at the bottom? Maybe I have more problems than not being able to figure out how to build a barndominium on my own?)

    If you want to get a building permit for a building you'll be living in you'll probably need to have technical plans. Just a scale drawing might not cut it. You might want to call the permit office in your area and ask them what they expect, maybe look at the drawings set of another building.

    Extra Insulation! I live in a barn and I ended up getting spray foam on the ceiling in barn and attic. It has been great because before heating and cooling was a challenge.

    Thanks for the advice everyone....insulation has definitely been on my mind....I was even thinking about going with 6-inch exterior walls.
