What our clients are saying

Molly Farley

We recently hired Swiss Construction to build a 24X32 pole barn with covered porch. We are extremely pleased with the end product. From start to finish the team at Swiss Construction has been a pleasure to work with. They are professional, responsive, hard working, timely, and fairly priced. We would highly recommend this company!

Overall experience was excellent, from the sales Department, field labor & sub contractors. Built my 24’x36′ pole barn in one day. Amazing!

David Kougher Jr.

I contacted them concerning a building project. They gave me a quick response and the job was complete in very short order. The original price quoted and agreed to came back less then originally quoted. The owner has integrity and will do what he can to take care of business. Very Happy & Very Pleased !

Harlie R.

We had Swiss Construction build us a 30×40 pole barn with a lean-to front porch about 6 months ago and they did an outstanding job. We recently had them come back and finish the ceiling of our lean-to porch and we couldn’t be happier. No project is too small or too big for Swiss Construction and the crew!

Jay Darland

Our school district needed a maintenance/storage facility; Swiss built us a 50 X 80 X 16 building that exceeded our expectations. The quality of the workmanship is excellent; EVERY ONE of their workmen was a pleasure to work with. Swiss is a very honest company and we are in talks with them on several more buildings.

Frequently Asked Questions

In a conventionally framed home, the structure relies on a series of load-bearing stud walls, beams, and joists to support the weight of the building. The framing is typically made of dimensional lumber or engineered wood products. On the other hand, a post-frame home utilizes large vertical wood columns or posts placed at regular intervals to support the roof and walls. These posts are embedded directly into the ground or mounted on concrete piers.

 

Both styles of home can accommodate a wide variety of interior and exterior finishes.

We’ve learned that the term “barndominium” means different things to different people. However, it often refers to a simple, post-frame home with a floorplan that is not limited by load-bearing walls. Whether you choose this style of construction or a conventionally-framed structure, we specialize in premium living spaces that meet your living requirements and emphasize quality at every step.

The primary difference between these two styles of construction is the foundation (posts vs. load bearing walls). Choosing one or the other does not affect the overall cost of the home. Mechanical systems, flooring, cabinetry, windows, and other interior and exterior finishes cost the same, regardless of the foundation type.
