Shouse & Barndominium Building FAQs

What is a shouse?

A shouse, which is short for "shop-house", serves as a versatile space used for personal workshop activities, storage purposes, or even as a combined living space. It typically has the appearance of a work shed, while a barndominium resembles a barn-style. It's worth noting, both shouses and barndominiums can be designed with stylish features.

How much do shouses cost in Wisconsin?

The cost of a shouse depends on size, materials, and location. On average, shouses in Wisconsin can cost anywhere from $400,000 to $1,000,000+.

What is the difference between a shouse & barndominium?

A shouse is a combination of a house and a shed, while a barndominium is a combination of a barn and a condominium. Both provide living space and storage/work space, but barndominiums are often larger and more spacious (open-concept barndominium designs are very popular), with a focus on barn-style design elements.

Are barndominiums allowed in Wisconsin?

Yes! Barndominiums and shouses are both allowed in Wisconsin. However, both are still subject to local building codes and zoning regulations.

Can you use a regular mortgage to finance a shouse or barndominium?

Yes! Regular mortgages can be used to finance a shouse or barndominium. However, work with a lender who is familiar with financing alternative structures like shouses and barndominiums to determine which financing option is the best for you.
