Barndominiums, Shouses & Homes

From a charming lakeside cabin to your dream barndominium or shouse, Cleary Building Corp. can bring your home or cabin ideas to life. Though they used to be known as agricultural or storage buildings, modern pole barns and post-frame construction can be crafted into beautiful homes and cabins. Often called barndominiums, shop houses, or shouses, post-frame homes can blend your favorite aspects of a barn or home with a garage, shed, or workshop.

A post-frame or pole barn house design means there is little to no need for interior load-bearing walls. This leaves a beautiful open-concept interior that you can design and decorate however you like.

Cleary Building Corp. has perfected the construction of pole barns, or Cleary Pre-Engineered Structures, with an industry-leading building process that ensures a quality structure built to last. Starting with the base principles of the Cleary Energy Miser option, designed for energy efficiency, we finish the interior of our structures to feel warm and welcoming.

Additionally, you can design the exterior with added features and accessories. Choose from stylish accessories like timber porches, dormers, craftsman awnings, cupolas, wainscoting, and much more. We also offer over thirty paint colors to find the perfect match for your building.

When you build your barndominium, shop house, shouse, or permanent residence with Cleary Building Corp., our Building Specialists guide you through the process of designing and constructing your Cleary home. From your initial meeting to finishing touches and beyond, your Building Specialist will be there every step of the way.
