Shouse & Barndominium Building FAQs

What is a shouse?

A shouse is a shop-house. A shouse is a personal workshop, storage space, or combined living space. A shouse is typically built to look like a work shed, while a barndominium resembles a barn-style. Don’t be fooled- both can be stylish! 

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! Wisconsin allows both barndominiums and shouses. 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.
